I just bought a new (refurbished) iPad2 3G, and it came with 4.3.5.

It seems I can't jailbreak it because:

  • There's no jailbreak for 4.3.5
  • There's no untethered jailbreak yet for 5.1.1
  • I can't change the firmware to any other version because the signing windows have closed and I don't have any SHSH blobs saved

Am I right? Thanks.

Yes, you'll just have to wait. – Andrew Larsson May 18 '12 at 20:09

Yeah, I think you may have missed your window. It seems that a 5.1.1 jailbreak is not too far away (if the jailbreak rumour mill is to be believed), so you might just have to wait it out for that.
