after many years as an Intel "fanboy"..building/ o'clocking/ tweaking my own machines and various OS's, I finally succumbed and bought the new iPad3...
in a word...FABULOUS !
until last night..
All of a sudden it went into recovery mode and I gathered from iTunes that "recovery woud wipe everyting off.
As an avid dog breeder/ exhibitor and photographer, I have over 2000 photos of my and many other dogs, that I basically MUST have...
I have worked out how to get it into DFU mode, have downloaded Redsnow, Absinthe, Spirit, RecBoot and Tiny Umbrella, but cannot get anywhere with them.
To make matters worse, the PSU for laptop I use for iTunes has died, and I imagine thats the only way to find out what "firmware"? version the ipad is running.
Redsnow, detects the ipad, only in DFU mode, but then tells me Jailbreak is "not supported by iPad3".
RecBoot, will ru, looking like its doing something, but then the iPad just goes back to recovery mode...
Absinthe only has the "fix recovery" button available when in DFU mode, but log says "recover fix copleted, allow to reboot"..but nothing happens.
Spirit simply tells me that there is no devoce connected, no matter what mode the iPad is in.
To make matters worse, I simply assumed that "Syncing", backed up everything ON the ipad... DOH !
Any help GREATLY appreciated.. 3 major Dog shows this weekend with many people awaiting their pictures from Shows in Country NSW over the last 3 weeks...
Thanks in advance,
