iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.

Hi Folks,

I just received a new-to-me iPad 1 with iOS 5.1. Hence, there are no SHSH blobs for it. Is there any way I can downgrade to 5.0.1 (for example, by restoring using an IPSW from,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw)? Or, will I just have to wait for 5.1 to be jailbroken?

No SHSH, no downgrade

No way to downgrade to 5.0.1 without SHSH saved. Yes there is an iPad 1 5.1 JB but tethered using redsn0w 9.10b6/9.10b6b.
