I have a Jailbroken iPad (Absinthe... in case that matters :s )
Everything was working fine until earlier today when I installed a tweak or an app (really can't remember what it was) via Cydia.
When it was almost done the iPad stopped responding.
I waited a while but eventually I tried to restart the iPad. The Apple logo was showing for a long time and then it seemed to restart again after a few minutes... and again and again.
This made me google how to fix this problem. I found a youtube video that suggested I downloaded redsn0w, downloaded the IPSW and pressed "Just boot" in redsn0w. Which led to me to have to enter DFU mode. Even though I followed the instructions I got a message that said something about I wasn't doing it right (in redsn0w) even though I was, but iTunes seemed to detect I was now in DFU mode.
But somewhere in this process the Apple logo disappeared and the iPad was turned off (I couldn't turn it off before that, it always turned on again in a few seconds). Now i can't turn it on to see the logo.
So I tried to open the IPSW in itunes and restore the thing there. That thing finished with a message that said there was an error and I can't restore the iPad.
...so here I am with an iPad that wont start... does anybody know what to do next, besides taking it out with the trash?
