Save iOS 5.0.1 SHSH Blobs Now For iPad Jailbreak

This morning, I finally updated my iPad 2 from jailbroken iOS 4.3.3 to iOS 5.0.1 to prepare for the pod2g Corona iPad 2 Jailbreak. Less than a week ago, the iPhone Dev Team released redsn0w 0.9.10b2 for an untethered jailbreak on A4 devices. This untethered jailbreak utilized pod2g's Corona exploit and is nearly complete for A5-based devices.

Apple could certainly release a minor update (iOS 5.0.2) in the next couple days to kill the jailbreak exploit. You should definitely get your iPad 2 updated to iOS 5.0.1 as Apple is certainly preparing an update to iOS to further stop jailbreakers. Apple has released iOS 5.1 beta 2 to developers which will certainly block the corona exploit.

You can use the newly released TinyUmbrella tool from @notcom to backup your iPad SHSH Blobs. This will allow you to save iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs for your iPad 2 (build 9A405) including the iPhone 4S second firmware (build 9A406) update.
