For those using yesterday's TinyCFW release to downgrade iPad2 to 4.3.3 and are running into issues with the executable there is a fix you can try below. For me I got the error " jvm could not start-the maximum heap size (-Xms) might be too large or a antivirus is blocking the execution." Since i didn't have a firewall or anti-virus running I knew that wasn't the problem. Below you can find the fix I used:
Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced system settings
Advanced (tab) and click on "Environment Variables"
Under "User variables.." click on "New"
The Chronic-Dev Crash Reporter that we announced yesterday which was released by the Chronic-Dev Team to help iPhone users aid in the discovery of exploits to be used in future jailbreaks.

A few of our readers have been reporting receiving an unknown error(3002) when trying to update to iOS5. This appears to indicate that you are blocking Apple's verification servers in your hosts file much like the 1015 errors we have seen in the past. There is a very simple fix for this.

The iPhone-Dev team has already released their tethered jailbreak for the iOS5 beta firmware. As we announced earlier, iOS5 is still susceptible to the limera1n exploit and therefore it was very easy for the dev-team to update their software to support the new firmware. Unfortunately, it appears that @i0n1cs untetthered exploit has been patched in iOS5 so it could be quite some time before we get an untethered jailbreak.
You will also need an iOS5 beta firmware file in order to use this new jailbreak tool. For non-developers please follow our …
