Manually Update iPad

I’m an iPad2 GSM user, as I have minimal use of iPad. I usually use it for browsing and reading, and use it for writing tutorials and making videos. Before evasi0n has released iOS7.x jailbreak, my iPad was running on iOS6. When i tried to update it to iOS7 version, it gave me error and the only way to update is by manual update.

Guide to Update iPad Firmware Manually

In manual iPad update, first we need to download the latest firmware version of iOS on your computer manually, and then use iTunes update . Today we talk about how I have updated my iPad 2 to latest iOs 7.0.4 version.  The only difference with other iOS version is that you are required to manually download the .ipsw file of firmware that you want to install on your Apple iPad.

Here are the direct download link for iOs 7.0.4 for iPad 2.
