    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
    Panz

    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.
