    Restoring iPad 1 16gb

    Hi, I'm new to this site. I have a 16gb iPad 1st generation running 5.1.1 and jailbreaked (possibly using redsn0w - not sure as I didn't do it). My question is, has anyone restored theirs to factory settings (so completely wiping everything including the jailbreak)?? If so, how did you do it?? I've been trying for days to do it - I've selected the restore option on the iPad itself, but that wasn't successful. I then tried through iTunes and have got the error code 3004. Please help as I'm wanting to sell the iPad (as have new 1). Thanks

    Hi Jim - welcome to the forum!

    Although I've not performed this procedure (yet!), you may have to put your device into DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode - look at This THREAD, and also one of many hits HERE, if you care to google - let us know your results - might help others. Dave

    Also a welcome from me. :-)

    Perhaps it's better to use iTunes, on your computer. There, make sure that the software of the computer is up to date, as well as iTunes. Check your security software. It also should be up to date. When trying to restore your device, don't connect another USB device to it. Restart your computer, it may help fixing the problem.

    Hi, the iPad is already stuck in dfu mode (won't let me do anything with it until it's restored). I will check out the threads you've suggested though - thank you.

    Did you use Internet Explorer to oh that IPSW? Because that's probably the reason why you have a got a .zip files instead of a .ipsw file.

    In other words, do not unzip the file after you download. Just change the file extension to be .ipsw.

    Or, use a different Internet browser rather than Internet Explorer. You want to make sure you have the files loaded and it is not a zip file.

    Then with the IPSW for 5.1.1 downloaded, you can go ahead and install it on your iPad1.
