Failed attempt to jailbreak brand new iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.5 , things to consider

A friend of mine asked if i can jailbreak his iPad 2 with current iOS version 4.3.5.  If you remember, i posted an article before on how to easily jailbreak an iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3, well 4.3.5 is different and you can't use to jailbreak an iPad on this version. After several hours of trial and error, and a lot of research, i found out the following important information you should consider when you try jailbreaking your iPad

  • iOS 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 for iPad 2 has no available untethered jailbreak
  • the only way to jailbreak iPad on this iOS version is to downgrade it to 4.3.3 (then jailbreak it using this very easy process)
  • You can only downgrade to 4.3.3 from 4.3.5, if your iPad 2 has been previously jailbroken on version 4.3.3 and has saved shsh/blobs (so obviously, there's no option to jailbreak a brand new iPad that has iOS 4.3.5 already installed)
  • the downgrade to 4.3.3 option is not available for 3g/CDMA versions of iPad 2, only applicable to "wifi only" devices
  • there's no ongoing development to jailbreak iOS versions 4.3.4 and 4.3.5, so just wait for the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak 
  • Although there are reports that some users (technical bad ass ones) was able to jailbreak their iPad 2 4.3.5
