    I have an iPad 3rd Gen 64GB Wifi+4G. Jail broke it with absinthe 2.0.4 but not too happy with the jailbreak. Well now I want to restore it back to iOS 5.1.1 with bricking it. Have seen few blogs where it's mentioned to do it via iTunes, some warn against it and using tiny umbrella etc etc.

    Could someone tell me the procedure to unjailbreak safely...... Cheers

    Thanks dude...... Is there a way to restore everything including music etc via backup. I think if I restore like new then all my present music and videos need to synced again.

    It is just worth pointing out that the failsafe method is only really required if you run into problems :)

    99% of the time, even with a jailbroken iPad3, iTunes will restore your device back to 5.1.1 if you just connect the iPad, start iTunes, and press restore! I would honestly suggest that first, and only use all the steps in the failsafe method if you run into problems.

    And rest assured you CANNOT brick an iPad under any circumstances when restoring IOS. Unless there is a hardware issue, you can always restore an iPad back to stock IOS.

    Finally, if you want to restore from a backup from iTunes or iCloud, that is fine. Jailbreaking does not prevent or interfere with that in any way. Once the iPad is restored in iTunes it will ask you if you want to set it up as new or from a previous backup. Choose the backup you want to restore from at this point and your device will be back to the way it was, just minus the jailbreak.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi All

    I have IPAD 3 64gb + wifi had jail broken it a weekago. Since then i had problems with airplay, so thought to restore to factory settings and jailbreak it again.

    On the Ipad I went into settings and choose to run erase all data and restore settings to default. I have realised that's not the way to do it. Its been more than 2 hours and its still not come back.

    Any way i can get back to previous state.

    Please share your thoughts on how to recover.

    Thanks and Regards

    Had the same happen to me earlier this week. The erase process has just gone into a loop since it can't get past the jailbreak. Hopefully you just need to hold down the Power andHome button till the Apple logo appears and it will boot right back up. Then follow either of the methods mentioned above.

    You will likely have to use this method to restore your iPad to factory settings.

    Hi santoshsingh77,

    My Ipad 3 have the same problem with you. I want to restore back to factory 5.1 but unfortunately, I didn't backup SHSH Blobs for to iOS 5.1. Now I will try to restore to 5.1.1 iOS

    Could your please confirm that after restoring to iOS 5.1.1, no more jailbreak on your IPAD? ( by using the tutorial mentioned by Mickey330 )

    Thanks in advance.

    I recommend you connect the iPad3 to iTunes and try to use the Restore method first. It's when/if you get errors that it's best to use this guide. As f4780y stated above, we have found that members are easily using iTunes to store their iPads ... here's hoping that the way for you.

    Yes, after you restore to iOS 5.1.1, the jail break will be gone and you will have a stock iPad, just how Apple intended. The restore wipes out the old and makes it new.

    I know you said you didn't save blobs for iOS 5.1 (which is okay because there will probably be no use for those blobs anyway). But, hopefully, you've saved blobs for 5.1.1 using Tiny Umbrella? Even if we can't use them right now or you don't intend to jail break again, it never hurts to save blobs "just in case."

    P.S. I noticed you posted this question in two other threads. I've deleted those other two. Mainly because asking the same question in multiple places fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow any responses or updates. And, it's against the rules. Please keep any further questions or updates to this thread. Thanks for your understanding.

    Dear Mod,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I used Tiny Umbrella to get the SHSH Blobs iOS 5.1.1. I think it may useful in case of downgrade in the future:). Is this OK if the file size of Blobs is only 10KB?

    I am sorry for make duplication for this question because I found this thread at the end.

    Thanks again,

    Kohler

    Oh, absolutely. SHSH blobs are tiny little things (mine are about that size). You're good to go...

    Hi Kohler,

    I have restored the iPad to original configur with iOS 5.1.1, Iam glad it worked without any problem by restoring from iTunes itself.

    Tiny Umbrella is not necessary for the jail break. However, it's always good to run it - when available - to save your SHSH blobs. As a jailbreaker, it's good to get into the habit of saving your SHSH blobs, "just in case."

    Connect to iTunes on your PC and press "restore". Presto!

    Ok, here's a stumper, now that iOS 6 is out and Apple is no longer signing SHSH blobs for anything older than iOS 6, how do I restore to 5.1.1 without jailbreak? I have my 5.1.1 SHSH blob, I have the stock 5.1.1 IPSW from apple, I have tinyumbrella and redsn0w and the latest iTunes but I can't make it happen at all.
