    Jailbroken ipad 2 stuck in recovery mode, help please :/

    So today.. i made the stupid decision of installing a update from itunes to my jailbroken ipad 2 & ended up being left with a ipad in recovery mode.
    I've tried using the program Tiny Umbrella to exit it but no luck.

    I've also tried the manual restore with 6.1 update ipsw file i downloaded but i still get a error.
    Been trying for the past 6 hours but i'm getting nowhere ._. I'm hoping someone could help me out, it'll be extremely appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try doing the manual restore again, but this time, use the IPSW for iOS 6.1.2. That is the most current iOS (as in - trying to install iOS 6.1 won't work being its no longer authorized by Apple).

    So, put your iPad back into DFU mode and then use the shift/restore process so you can select the most current iOS. It should work with no further issue.

    If you have continuing problems, holler back and we'll take another shot at it. Good luck.

    Hoping you can help

    My wife has this same issue and mistakenly an the update to 6.1.3 without having run a backup first. Can you share a bit more on how to enter back to the DFU process and the correct way to do this process? I want to be sure to not mess it up as there is a lot of application data that would be devastating to her if lost. thanks so much for your help!

    Regards,
    Chris

    I guess I don't understand your issue. Do you have an iPad stuck in recovery mode or is your iPad now running iOS 6.1.3, correct? If it's on iOS 6.1.3, then that's where it has to stay. There is no other iOS you can put on it.

    For "peace of mind" - check the apps that have data. They should be fine and have all the data that was there before the upgrade/update was done. Oh, and you can connect the iPad to iTunes and run a backup now (as it's always a good idea to run backups on a regular basis anyway).

    Marilyn

    P.S. And, just for educational reasons, here's the tutorial my fellow moderator, f4780y, made on DFU Mode: DFU Mode for Dummies. It's good reading for the future or in case you need to re-install iOS 6.1.3 for some reason...

    It is stuck in recovery mode. I am thinking that based on what I have read, there i no way to restore it any way that will preserve the data from the apps? I knew it was a long shot, but I wanted to check into it. I know when a Windows machine OS goes belly up, you can still access files on the hard disk. Was hoping there was a similar process on this device in which data could still be retrieved before wiping it out.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    If the update didnt go through, then you should be able to exit recovery mode by using a tool such as TinyUmbrella (download from there - The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella) or redsn0w.

    When you launch TU, it has a button on the top right hand panel saying "Exit Recovery". If the previous IOS is still intact, the iPad should boot as normal once you do this.

    Good luck.
