    Hey,

    I got some thing I had ordered in the mail today. They were a few iPad accessories. One of them was a USB hub.

    I connected the USB hub with a camera connection kit and started reconnecting it with flash drives plugged into it to test it out. So I connected a 4GB flash drive with it and it mounted fine. Then I tried connecting a 4GB and a 2GB at the same time. they mounted fine, no problem. Then I tried connecting two 4GB drives and the 2Gb drive at the same time. This time I couldn't get them to mount. So I tried connecting just the two 4GB drives at the same time, and my iPad rebooted and went into safe mode.

    I unplugged the USB hub and tried rebooting and no luck I was still in safe mode. I tried rebooting again, and still no luck.

    So, I don't know what else to try at this point. It wasn't a software issue, whatever happened, so I can't just uninstall the offending program.

    What should I do?

    Please respond quickly, so I can straighten this out.

    Thanks.

    Uhm, try holding the Power and Home button simultaneously for like 15-30 seconds then release. See if it fixes that.

    I assume I'm going to have to do an iTunes restore.

    Wait, is your iPad jailbroken?

    Do I need to do an iTunes restore? I'd really prefer I didn't have to.

    Does anyone know how to help me in this situation or should I go to jailbreakqa?

    What app or tweak were you using to mount those flash drives? That may be what's hung up. Try uninstalling that app or tweak and see if that helps you get out of Safe Mode.

    @Marilyn:

    I tried that already :-(

    I was using iFile and USB Mounting Toggle Switch. Like I said I thought maybe that would solve the problem too, so I removed both of them and rebooted, but to no avail.

    I don't know what else to do! I really really don't want to do an iTunes restore, because I have some files on here that I don't want to loose, but I already tried transferring them to an external storage device and iFile wouldn't load.
