I have my ipad jailbroken with redsnow for 4.2.1. Since it's a tethered jailbreak, I keep the batt juiced. However, yesterday I didn't charge it enough and it died. Typically I would just do a reload only via the redsnow files, however, since my usb charger cord doesn't actually charge, i get to the pineapple logo and then it dies immediately. I tried to charge it via the wall charger for a bit so I could reload successfully but now i'm stuck on the apple logo with the loading icon over it (looks like sun rays in a circle). Since it's locked and won't power off, I can't do the redsnow reload until it is off. Which it will only be when it dies again... is there any way around this??? or is there an actual usb cord that will charge via the comp while doing the reload?
Really need this ipad for tomorrow's classes!
Ok, after several nerve wracking attempts, I have successfully rebooted via redsnow. Everything is good now, thanks. Mods, please lock or delete this thread.
