Ok, noob to jailbreaking, so here is what has happened
I had jailbroken my ipad1 a few weeks ago using redsnow.
Today i D/L'd an update from apple 5.1.1 forgetting that I had jailbroken the unit. it put it into restore mode.
not wanting to lose everything on it, I tried to re-jailbreak using redsnow. it did not work, so I did it again. still no go.
Tried a few other things, re-boot, restore, everthing I could find on-line - now it just gives me the blue screen and redsnow says unexpected error and it's stuck in some wierd version of dfu mode.
So, how can I fix it? I am mac based.
