    Looks like you don't know about shsh blob. Before you do any restore, run latest tiny umbrella, plug ipad in and click save shsh . Do both shsh request from Apple and cydia from ticking and unticking in Adv tab and click save shsh .
    Then look under General Tab for any shsh blob.

    You can only restore to the firmware that correspond to the shsh blob.

    As Yeow said we are talking about SHSH, not SSH. You can read up about SHSH in the link in my signature about them.

    As for the warez remark I made in your original post you mentioned an app being the reason you need to restore (which I edited out) that the forum automatically starred out. That is warez and not allowed on MMi.

    OKay here is what I have learned so far.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    I can edit the hosts file and then itunes will look for a blob loclly on my PC and not from the apple server.

    Alternatily I can us e a program called tiny umbrella which is loaded and run from my pc.

    I hav e loaded it but cannot dfind the executable so maybe I will aim for the former solution.

    Hvae I read this correctly.

    You need to run tiny umbrella, connect your device and press save SHSH. Once with the option under advanced that says "request SHSH from cydia" checked and once with it not checked. This will tell you what SHSH you can restore to and that in turn tells you what firmware you can restore to.

    Do I restore with itunes or with tiny umbrella.

    ideally I want a cleatn state. In other words Factory reset ipad at 4.3 or 4.3.3

    OKay I know I am starting to look real stupid but given the fact that if I upgrade to 4.3.5 by accident I may be left without a jailbreak or atleast have a whole new problemm I want to do ths right.

    I have saved all the SHSHs as described.

    What now.

    Do I need to edit the hosts file and how will I have itunes restore.

    Just to be clear- I want a clean start . Now it is on 4.3

    I could bring it to 4.3.3 but I get the feeling my SHSH is going to be 4.3.

    What I dont get is why I need to safe an image off my device. Are there not generic images available to download.

    Then that is the only firmware you can restore to.

    You may have a chance if you are still on 4.3 to get your 4.3 SHSH with iFaith. I have never used it myself but heard it does work. Give it a quick google and try it out.

    Twice now I built and verified a 560Mb IPSW but I dont actually know where it has been put....

    Maybe I have only Downloaded and Veryfied

    Now I am building it

    OKay and now I need to get into a PWned DFU state to restore to the new IPSW.....

    I think this is a redsnow thing... I am googling away

    downloading ireb-r4
