How to restore ipad 1 to factory settings, after jailbreak usage
I bought a new iPad 1 in June 2009 and have had great success using it - principally connected thro wifi at home, to the net. I am an enthusiastic user of a wide range of apps, notably for News, Finance, Investing, Banking, twitter, blogs and email. I have long been intrigued by the possibility of jailbraking and when Comex came up with jailbreakme.com, I became hooked on JBd 4.3.3. This turned out to be a dead end, since the young hacker took a job with Apple Computer. I don't blame him of course, but this has left folks like me at the point of trying to return to the orthodox Apple user fold. I figure there is a lot of very useful life left in my iPad, if I can ever get back to the factory settings.
I did try to follow the instructions posted by Redmond Pie about restoring. But I got into a horrible mess - finger trouble most likely. Now I am stuck with a lovely iPad, WITH NOTHING ON IT, as far as I can tell.
I am asking for some step-by step procedures that I can follow to RESTORE the iPad 1 to its factory settings.
I have 2 XP machines, on which iTunes 10.6.1 fails to execute, and a new Lenova Thinkpad with Win 7, Home Premium, that I am trying to use. I have good DSL internet connection to the Lenova.
Help would be welcome.
