    Question How to fix my bricked iPad?

    Hey guys, so my boss said I could take an iPad home and keep it if I managed to fix it. They tried to jailbreak it I think and failed, and now its so effed up that I don't know what to do.

    Here are the problems:

    1. Its stuck on the screen that shows to plug it into iTunes
    2. When I plug it into the computer, it doesn't even recognize it as a device and NEITHER DOES iTUNES!
    3. All I can do is power it off and power it back on to the same screen.
    4. The volume adjustment doesn't work, but I can mute it / unmute it?

    Do you guys have any idea what I could do?? It would be awesome to get this thing working!

    Thanks,
    Punchki

    Here's your best chance at getting that iPad up and running:

    1) Make sure you have the most current version of iTunes (double check and download, if necessary, from Apple)

    2) Then, follow the steps outlined in this tutorial: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If you follow the steps exactly as written, you should end up with an iPad running iOS 5.1.1 (of course, if there is no hardware fault). Good luck and let us know how you get on.
