    does it tale hours to erase all data and settings. i started the process and the progress spinner is spinning but it is still spinning an hour later.

    should it take this long on an ipas 2 wifi only 64 gig? also jailbroken running 5.0.1

    Thanks. That is what I did.


    I was preparing to restore to iOS 5.1.1
    And the instructions that came with absinthe 2 said that it would be faster to erase all data and settings first. I was unaware that it shouldn't be do e on a device that was already jailbroken. I put the iPad in dfu mode and restored to 5.1.1 and then the jailbreak only took about 2 minutes.

    I did EXACTLY the same thing & was quite frustrated the JB developer would be so careless to include this in his directions. I don't have the link but Mickey did a tutorial of jailbreaking 5.1.1 in the hacking section....

    jailbroken ipad

    to cancel the restore on the jailbroken ipad just hold the menu button and the lock button down for about 10 seconds. that might work for your device as well
