    erase all data and settings - how long should it take?

    does it tale hours to erase all data and settings. i started the process and the progress spinner is spinning but it is still spinning an hour later.

    should it take this long on an ipas 2 wifi only 64 gig? also jailbroken running 5.0.1

    Sorry, you should know to never reset data on a jailbroken idevice. You will have to put your iPad into DFU mode and upgrade the IOS to 5.1.1
    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    Luckily, the Absinthe Jailbreak has just been released and it works. If you have a backup you can still restore your settings after that.

    Thanks. That is what I did.


    I was preparing to restore to iOS 5.1.1
    And the instructions that came with absinthe 2 said that it would be faster to erase all data and settings first. I was unaware that it shouldn't be do e on a device that was already jailbroken. I put the iPad in dfu mode and restored to 5.1.1 and then the jailbreak only took about 2 minutes.

    I did EXACTLY the same thing & was quite frustrated the JB developer would be so careless to include this in his directions. I don't have the link but Mickey did a tutorial of jailbreaking 5.1.1 in the hacking section....

    jailbroken ipad

    to cancel the restore on the jailbroken ipad just hold the menu button and the lock button down for about 10 seconds. that might work for your device as well
