Jailbroken iPad not charging and keeps resetting
I purchased my iPad about 6 months ago and was already jailbroken. About 2 days ago it powered off for no reason a couple of times but then seemed to be fine. Last night I chaged the iPad in a switched off state all night but today it will not turn on. The Apple logo appears and then briefly shows the home screen before resetting.
I have tried charging from the USB cable instead of the Apple Mains charger but this is still the situation. The battery icon is still showing as red. I have also tried a reset (holding the pwoer and home button) and also tried powering off but ir resets before I can do this. I am not sure what jailbreak program was used for my iPad as I purchased it like this. I believe the iOS is 4.2.1 but again I am not 100% sure.
I have seen the thread "Jailbroken iPad (4.2.1) not rebooting after battery drain" which is exactley the problem I have, but the fix for this is for Redsn0w and I do not think I have Redsn0w as no Pineapple icon is shown on bootup.
Is there anyway of fixing this without restoring the iPad as I do not want to lose my apps info, esp games? i have Cydia installed which are all working fine and no updates have been carried out lately.
Any help please?????
