    Does this mean that if I didn't save my iOS 5.1 SHSH blobs for my 'new iPad' and that a jailbreak comes for iOS 5.1 for the 'new iPad' that I can't get it since I didn't save my SHSH blobs? If so, I mine as well upgrade to iOS 5.1.1

    You should be able to still save 5.1 SHSH right now with tiny umbrella. Better do it soon though.

    No it doesn't mean that.. SHSH blobs are only required to DOWNGRADE .. this downgrade is not related to a jailbreak.

    In order to downgrade to 5.0 for example, you have to have your SHSH blobs from 5.0 .. being that iPad 3 came with 5.1 it can NEVER go to 5.0 ...

    Ultimately every time you update your firmware you should immediately capture your SHSH blobs for that corresponding ios version so you can restore to it later when apple stops signing it.

    I always use tinyumbrella a few days after a new firmware drops just because. And each time I get a new device I run tinyumbrella on it just to grab that firmware shsh even though I can't jailbreak it. Like one of my new 4S I have came on 5.1 so I grabbed the blobs for it just incase.

    Can you over write your blobs? I know I saved it when 5.0.1 came out, I'm just not sure if I did it again since apple stopped signing :/
