Have you got ur ipad fixed? I also got this problem, any help is much appriciated!
I have had this happen to me 2 times. There was nothing thatIj could find that would fix the iPad. The first time, by accident, I went into settings, general, reset and erase all content and reset (or something like that). I had to do this the second time also. Here is the dirty secret. On a jailbroken iPad, when you do this erase and reset, it will lock up your device. It will be stuck at the apple logo. This solves the problem of having a jailbroken iPad that the genius bar will not service. Both times I did this and then went to the genius bar. They could not get it to do anything. They immediately gave me a new iPad. I hope this helps.Originally Posted by rix
strange I have this problem after jbme3.0 several days ago. iPad no longer connect with PC when I try to use iFaith to pull off 4.3.3 blobs that I didn't save before. iPad also won't connect to iTunes and display "not charging" when connect to any USB or wall outlet. It's not the cord or PC because I have no problem charging and connect to the PC with other iPad. the iPad still taking a charge, but slowly overnight when I turn it off and connect to AC.
Tried putting it in recovery mode and have iPad display the USB plug going to iTunes icon, but of course plugging it into PC doesn't trigger anything. Any ideas? TIA
As chirogreg mentioned, a jailbroken device will lock up after using the erase all content thing. Which is great if your warranty is still intact. There are no traces left on the iPad because it erased everything and then couldn't boot back up.
My recommendation is to use erase all content and settings and take it back to best buy to get it replaced.

unfortunately I'm beyond the warranty period on my original Pad. I'm not convince if iFaith ever make the connection with the iPad after I put it in DFU mode. Still haven't been able to salvage the 4.3.3 blobs yet. Couldn't go through Cydia since apple no longer signing them. And can't use TU since there is no PC connection. Guess I can leave it as it untethered forever and do everything through the cloud. Still hate to have to put up with the slow charging and "no charging" stuff. Thanks for your suggestions though
It is perfectly normal for the iPad to display "not charging" and to charge very slowly if it is connected to older USB connections or any charger which is not the original iPad 10W charger. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that...
The only way to charge properly is to connect the iPad to the original charger (an iPhone one won't cut it) or a new high power USB, such as those on new MacBooks. Then and only then does the "not charging" message go away...

sorry if I didn't make myself clear. I am charging it with the AC charger, not USB. I know about the slow trickling charge via USB. I have normal charging with other iPad using the exactly same wall adapter and cord.
And of course my iPad is not seen by the computer, so I'm thinking there must be something wrong in one of the pin in the plug. Saving grace is that it's still taking a charge, just very slowly. And guess I don't need to sync it with any PC/Mac once cloud is here. Thanks goodness for untethered. Just hoping I never have to do a recovery or restore
