    My iPad is stuck in the apple logo screen. I've tried to do the recovery mode method yet only reinstall to about 75% and get the error message "iTunes could not connect to the iPad because it is locked with a passcode" I cannot input the passcode coz it's stuck on boot up. Pls help.

    You will need to restore the device using a special mode called DFU mode. We have a sticky tutorial on how to enter DFU mode here - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/27489-dfu-mode-dummies.html

    Once your device is in DFU mode, open iTunes on your PC and press restore. This will completely wipe your device, but it will get round the issue of not having the passcode.

    If you run into further problems we have a failsafe restore tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html.
