You cannot factory unlock an iPad as of now

Ouch! You mean I PERMANENTLY locked my iPad?! That's not good. Perhaps a clear warning to that effect might be in order here. If I knew that, I wouldn't have done this in the first place. :-(

Au contraire! I finally reinstalled 5.1.1 using redsn0w and my unlock returned! Jailbroke with Absinthe (redsn0w wouldn't work) so my iPad2 is now both jailbroken and unlocked on 5.1.1 down from 6.1.2. I should mention that AT&T reissued the IMEI unlock.

I bought a used iPad2 running 6.1.2 that had 4.3.5, 5.1.1 and 6.1.2 hashes saved. I used this tutorial (above) to successfully downgrade from 6.1.2 to 5.1.1. BUT it relocked the iPad! Although it's now Jailbroken, I'd still like to use it on a different carrier from AT&T but I'm not sure how to unlock it. AT&T claims it SHOULD be unlocked and they reissued the network unlock. Any idea what I should do? Will restoring it with a locally saved 5.1.1 IPSW do it?

I have an iPad 2 now running on iOS 6.0. Now I'm only having 5.0.1, 5.1, 5.1.1 shsh blobs because when I bought my iPad it's already on iOS 5.0.1 (that means there's no way to get the 4.x shsh, right?). So are there anyway to jailbreak my iPad? Or it's impossible and I have to wait for the iOS 6 jailbreak. Sorry for the long post :D

Will it delete any of my progress in apps or delete apps or files saved?

Failed iPad 2 GSM downgrade from 6.0 to 5.1.1 with SHSH 4.3.5 & SHSH 5.1. 1 "Couldn't obtain fresh baseband blobs. It's probably no longer being signed. Baseband : ICE3_04.12.02_BOOT_02.12.Release.bbfw Don't panic! This is fixable with a simple redsn0w update. You don't have to lose your re-restore!"
