    hello..

    i have an ipad2 gsm with a broken power/sleep button.. recently i updated it to the latest ios then had a jailbreak..
    now, my nephew installed a mod that i don't know and the screen just went blank and unresponsive..
    but, whenever we plug the device, we would hear a charging sound (indicates its still turned on)..
    i want to hard reset the device but i cannot with the broken power/sleep button..

    i saw something in youtube about putting the device in the freezer to turn it off. i tried and it failed.
    i've been searching all over the net.. even saw a post using winscp but the ipad is not connected to our wifi..
    i wanted to restore but the itunes prompts me to respond on the ipad (i can't with the blank and unresponsive screen)..

    can anyone suggest solutions?

    thanks in advance for replying..

    Try leaving it unplugged until the battery dies and the iPad turns off.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I've moved your thread to our Hacking Section where the knowledgeable folk there are better able to assist you in fixing this issue.

    Could you ask your nephew what it was he installed? They may need to know what it was.

    That should take awhile.. the last time i remember the battery was at 97%.. how long does it take to drain the battery with the screen off?

    Hello and thank you!
    he said that he installed iFile..

    It could take days. With your iPad in the state it's in, however, it's the only way to get your iPad to power down.

    Do you have OpenSSH or afc2dd loaded on the iPad (you would have gotten them from Cydia)?

    Then I'm afraid there is no way, that it know of, to remotely access that iPad from another device. Hopefully, running the battery down will help it (when you turn it back on).

    Sorry, but it looks as if you'll have to wait for the battery.

    Let's say I had it loaded.. What would I do?
    I want to know so that when this happens again, I won't be waiting for the battery to die.. Again..
    It's been more than 2 weeks and I think it's still alive..
