    My understanding is, you pressed the reset all button in your jailbroken iPad's settings right? If I recall correctly, if you have a jailbroken device and you reset all settings or erase all content (one or the other) through your device, this will corrupt your files and will no longer boot up. This happened to me personally before. If this is the case, the only solution that I found is to restore your iPad through iTunes. Unfortunately, this will update your device to iOS 6. The only way to downgrade back to 5.1.1 and get it jailbroken again is if the window is still open to do so. Please see a fellow member's post here for instructions.

    You should not use the "reset" functions on a jailbroken device. They will not function.

    You have 2 choices. If you want to be jailbroken on 5.1.1 again, you will need to be very quick and follow this thread - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/90123-time-sensitive-restore-ipad-ios-5-1-1-a.html

    Time is running out and Apple will block installation of IOS 5.1.1 very soon.

    If you want to update to IOS6 and lost the chance to jailbreak for the time being, follow this guide here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    Hope that helps.

    Sounds like you need to charge it from the mains (not Usb) for a while. Then try the second link above...

    Is the screen lighting up at all? (With or without Apple logo). If your screen does light up but just doesn't boot, your iPad will not show up if its stuck in that stage. If this is the case, you will need to enter DFU mode in order for it to read on your computer. Tutorial link here. If the iPad is completely dead and wont respond even with f4780y's suggestion, you may have to get some help from Apple on getting a replacement.

    Edit: I just missed your post, so it's not completely dead. You have hope then!
