Hi there everyone,
I hate that my first post on here is me begging for help, but I seem to have gotten myself into abit of a pickle with my week old IPAD 2 32GB (apple refurb).
I updated it to 5.1.1 before jailbreaking it. Everything was fine and dandy. It all came flooding back to me since i first JB'd my first gen ipod touch.
Things started to go wrong when I realised my rear camera shutter wouldn't open. I searched about abit and after every fix failed I found someone saying that I needed to reset all my settings. So I did just that and.......Nope, still no camera shutter but now the added pain of being stuck in safe mode. I clicked the restart button several times that kept on popping up but it kept on reverting to safe mode.
I thought, well the ipads gonna have to go back to apple, so ill need to un-install the jailbreak. Simple I thought, I'm sure I did it on my touch a few years ago. Anyway, plugged it into itunes, bashed restore and waited while I had my tea (chicken madras if anyone was wondering). Anyway, it failed giving me a 1601 error. It got stuck on the connect to itunes screen but wouldnt show up as connected to itunes, so I did abit more reading and put it into DFU mode. Downloaded TinyUmbrella like the guide on here told me to. The untick set host to cydia on exit was actually greyed out.
Downloaded another IOS as the one I had, itunes didnt like it as it says invalid file type.
Stuck it into DFU mode and itunes picked up my ipad.
Manually selected the firmware I downloaded and still the same invalid file type error.
So im stuck..............I assume its stuck in DFU mode as it wont do owt else.
Itunes wont restore it and it dosnt like any of the firmwares I download.
Have I got a new rather expensive serving tray? I hope not.
Look forward to hearing anyones ideas. Stressing about getting this sorted as I bought it to take on my honeymoon (2 weeks on sunday) while the wife to be burns in the sun with her bloody kindle.
Hope I got the right section as well. From being on other forums I know how annoying it can be.
Thanks in advance,
I'll probably be checking for a reply every 30 / 40 seconds, lol.
