    Default How to downgrade from iOS 6.0 to 5.1.1 without saved SHSH blobs? I want to jailbreak

    Hello guys, Ive been a lurker on here for a while and finally decided to join. Now, I have the new iPad and I upgraded to iOS 6 when it was released. Now I want to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 so that I can jailbreak it again. I already have redsn0w but I cant find the ipsw file. Also, when I updated to iOS 6.0 I didnt save any SHSH blobs, is there a work around for this or am I SOL? Let me know if you guys need any more info.

    Thank you guys in advance!

    I don't know if I'm stuck in the same boat as this guy. I upgraded to iOS 6.0.1 also and I got tiny umbrella, but when I use redsnow to jb my phone it says that it cant use any of the shsh blobs that I have saved. Am I as screwed as this guy?

    if you were never jailbrokenwhile apple was still signing blobs for 5.1.1 then you are stuck.

    For the record, OTA SHSH or ones that are from "upgrading" in iTunes usually are not complete and work for restoring. It's annoying but the dev-team recommends to always restore then restore from backup and then save your blobs however you choose.
