<b>Step One</b>
Make a folder called "Pwnage" on the desktop. In it, you will need a couple of things. PwnageTool 4.2, found&nbsp;<a href="http://crzz.co/dl/PwnageTool_4.2.dmg" style="color: #666666; text-decoration: none;" target="_blank"><b>here</b></a>

You will also need the 4.2.1 iPad firmware.
4.2.1:&nbsp;<a href="http://appldnld.apple.com/iPad/061-9857.20101122.VGthy/iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw" style="color: #666666; text-decoration: none;" target="_blank">iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw</a>
