    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 swear it works, im not lying, i dont know why it worked, i wasnt expecting it to, i was just trying it out and then it restored and you can try it, if your scared it might not work just back up, if it doesnt work just restore to ios 5 and restore your backup.

    Did it exactly how you said but it's been on verifying iPad restore with apple for awhile now, did that happen to you? Should I keep waiting?

    it happened quickly for me. i dont know why it didnt work for you, try cancelling, going into dfu and trying again, timing is everything on this one.

    shouldn't the 1st apple ip be deleted or commented out as well?

    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..
