downgrade ios 5.0.1

I see many websites that tell how to downgrade ios 5.0.1 to ios 4.3.3.  Is this really possible and if so which website would you recommend to use for instructions?  I have an ipad 2 with ios 5.0.1

That is correct. Without it you cannot get the downgrade to work.

I see a website called quickiphoneunlocking.com

Will this purchased software be able to jailbreak my ipad 2 so I can install cydia?

It says it is legal.  Is that true?

So is there any proven way to downgrade from ios 5.0.1 to 4.3.3 to install cydia that you would recommend of know of?

James HIT DirectorCommented:
For an iPad 2 that came with 5.0.1 there is no way to downgrade.
There is an release coming out soon so you are better off waiting as the j/b community has found an exploit.

Actually my ipad came with 4.3.5 but I switched to a new mac and did a restore and it upgraded me to ios 5.0.1

Does this change anything since I originally had ios 4.3.5 on the ipad?

James HIT DirectorCommented:
No, it just means your iPad was built with a later release but without the correct shsh it won't matter.

Can you downgrade an ipad if it has ios 5.0

James HIT DirectorCommented:
No, again without the SHSH you cannot downgrade.
If you want, you can download this program: tiny umbrella
http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/

and see if Cydia has the SHSH (doubtful but worth a try).
Run the program and you will see for yourself what your options are when it comes to downgrading.

So just by downloading the ipsw for 4.3.3, that does not help me since I don't have the SHSH
