Question: iPad 2 cannot instal iOS 6.1.3

Hello everyone. I have a question related to iPad 2 WiFi. Recently I got it from my friend and it was running very slowly on iOS 9. I looked up on IPSW.me and I found out that you can install iOS 6.1.3 on it, since it is still being signed by Apple. Furthermore, I found a video on YouTube describing the whole process and the uploader did the whole thing through iTunes without a single problem. To add up, the video was uploaded 2 days before I watched it. When I tried it myself, the iTunes simply refused the restoration saying that Firmware is not compatible. Anyone who did that here, can you please give me any advices on what to do? I'm new to all this. Also, forgive me for any grammar mistakes or misspellings, english is not my main language. Thank you.

iOS 9.3.5

Tap on the link below to my iDevice/iOS performance/optimisation user tips link.


Try all of these tips and leave each tip active together. Do not simply try every tip individually, expecting just one tip to be a performance “cure all”.

Many of these tips are designed to work together to improve overall iOS/iDevice performance.

Good Luck!

The model numbers for both iPad 2's are the same, A1395. However if you go into settings > General > About > Model, you should see a alphanumeric sequence starting with "MC". If you do have the 2,1 version, the model number will be either MC979LL/A (white) or MC769LL/A (black). If you have the 2,4 it will be MC954LL/A or MC989LL/A for the black or white version.
