HOW TO DOWNGRADE iOS 5.0 to 4.3.3 WITHOUT SHSHs!!!!!!
HEY GUYS, im new to this forum and joined to spread the good news that you CAN downgrade ios 5 to 4.3.3 on the ipad
EDIT: I was in DFU mode when this worked, PUT YOUR DEVIDE INTO DFU MODE>
1:download ios 4.3.3 for ipad 2
2: connect ipad
2b: ENTER DFU MODE
3: on you ipad page hold the shift key(option key on mac) and click restore
4:choose the ios 4.3.3 ipsw
5:it will extract the software and the second it starts saying verifying restore with apple, turn off your network connection
6: The restore should work and you can go jailbreaki tested this on an ipad 2 (wifi) on 5.0, i dont know if it works on 5.0.1 but it might. HAVE FUN WITH YOUR JAILBREAK!!!
i hope this gets on the homepage so everyone can know!!!!!

I would love to know how this works as I recently had an issue with my ipad 2 screen becoming unresponive and I had to restore to 5.0 to get my ipad back up and running. Lost my jailbreak in the process and even with my SHSH blobs I am having a hell of a time getting back to 4.3.3
to the best of my knowledge simply commenting out the apple update servers like above without running tinyumbrella TS server would cause the restore to fail..
