    Hi, so just recently, I opened up an iPad 3, 16 GB with iOS 5.1 that I got about 3 months ago and I decided that I wanted to jailbreak it. I've already jailbroken my iPod 4G (iOS 5.1.1), so I figured I could use Absinthe again to jailbreak my iPad. Problem is that when I load up Absinthe, it says my device is not supported, which is surprising. Does anyone know how I could possibly jailbreak my iPad? I can't upgrade it because obviously, I will be forced to upgrade to iOS 6.0, which I DON'T want to do. Any help please? :/

    Your device needs to be on 5.1.1, and Apple isn't signing it anymore.

    Try using Redsn0w or iFaith and fetch your SHSH blobs (Maybe?) then try updating from Redsn0w?

    I backed up my SHSH blobs for 5.1 using TinyUmbrella, but what do you mean by updating via redsn0w?

    If you just opened it now, and it's only on 5.1, then you're SOL.

    It's either you stay there, or upgrade to 6. You have zero option to get to 5.1.1 to jailbreak.

    You'll have to wait for an iOS 6 jailbreak at this point.

    Do you think I would be better off simply updating to iOS 6.0 and wait for the next jailbreak to come out? :/
