No, you can't use the iPad one. iOS files are device specific.

Hey, wait a minute, is this the reason for your issues in this thread? Excuse me, I need to roll around on the floor for a bit.

OK, LOL, no, that won't work. It'd be nice if it did, custom firmware could be based off a single ipsw for all devices.

My goodness OP, hopefully that was not the reason for Redsn0w not recognising the ipsw in your other thread, and hopefully spockers has managed to get up off the floor coz I might need the floorspace for myself.
