    Hi You won't be able to restore the iPad to 3.2.2 unless the guy you bought it from saved your SHSH files for that version. I would almost guarantee he didnt because you had to jailbreak it.
    You can check by downloading tinyumbrella on your PC, although I am not sure if TU will be able to see your iPad if it is stuck in recovery mode. You can give it a go and see.
    If they are saved, they will be on the Cydia server.
    Even if you cant use TU, you can point iTunes towards Cydia and see if you can then install 3.2.2. To do this, you need to change the hosts file on your PC and insert the line:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    This will make iTunes ask Cydia for your blobs instead of Apple

    If this does not work, then you do not have SHSH's for 3.2.2 saved and you MUST restore 4.2.1 (the latest firmware). There is no other option as this is the only firmware you are entitled to from Apple. Put the iPad in DFU mode, remove the line in your hosts file if you inserted it earlier, and press the restore button on iTunes and let it download the latest 4.2.1.

    If you get stuck on any of these topics, search the forum as there is lots of information.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, so to solve the problem, remove the line from your hosts file. iTunes should offer you only the latest firmware. You can always download it from apple.com and then use shift-restore (or option-restore) and point iTunes to the file you downloaded if there continues to be an issue... That way you know what exact firmware you are installing...
    Good Luck!

    when u use tiny umbrella, remember to click on the ipad icon on the left panel under device, then select exit recovery. i faced the exact problem like you last time. problem is due to i sync when cydia is still downloading installous or limerain is installing cydia. shd be easy to solve your problem.

    so that I tried installing with 4.2.1 ,now getting an error 11 but am still optimistic,there should be some way around
