    Hi, i have an ipad 3 aka new ipad with 64gb wifi only.

    It was running on ios 5.1.1 jailbroken. I wanted to reset it back to its original state,so I used the ipad reset and also erase all media and settings.
    It has currently been on a spinning icon in the centre for about 1h now. How long does it usually take??

    Im really worried that I messed up somehow.
    Thanks

    Well, unfortunately, you should not have done the reset all from within the Settings app on a jail broken iPad. That's why it's messed up.

    Your best (only) bet is to restore the iPad and put iOS 6 on it. To restore it, put it into DFU mode (tutorial here: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=27489) and then open iTunes if it doesn't automatically open. Then, with the ipad connected, you can click the "Restore" button on the main Summary page in iTunes.

    That should fix it. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    I've held the home and home button and it shutdown. Tried to turn it on and still manages to load.

    The reason I need to reset is to fix my assistive touch button that keeps crashing.
    I know that installing IOS6 will fix it but I still want to retain the youtube app and maps, not the apple maps in the new version.

    Anyway for me to reinstall 5.1.1 or
    fix assistive touch or
    reset to default 5.1.1?

    Do you have SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1? If yes, you might be able to re-restore that iPad3 to iOS 5.1.1. Follow this tutorial here and see if it works for you: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=92572

    Good luck and let us know how that works out.

    P.S. Sorry about giving advice to upgrade to iOS 6. I thought you meant that when you said you wanted to "reset it back to its original state."

    OTA blobs will not work for the restoration to iOS 5.1.1.
