    I need help!! My Ipad was originally Jailbroken, Yesterday I plugged my ipad into the wall charger using the adapter and it said not charging. It would charge a tiny bit at a very slow rate like 4% after 5hours. I thought it might be a problem caused from jailbreaking so I went into my settings on my ipad and I selected delete all data and restore .. the apple screen came on with a white bar loading and it turned off and on to just an apple logo screen. The battery is depleted and the red low battery sign flashes from time to time, but leaving it in the charge i am able to get it back to the apple logo screen. Im afraid to take it in to the apple store because im not sure if i got rid of the jailbroken part of the ipad during the restore from the ipad. I was able to get to the screen where theres a USB pointing to the itunes logo but when i connect to my computer Itunes wont recognize it and doesnt show anything under devices. HELP ME!! i just need to restore my ipad so i can take it into apple so they can check out the battery portion of it.
    thanks

    Please delete or edit this post - you are not allowed to talk about piracy. FYI

    Just restore your iPad through iTunes. Place the ipad in DFU mode while plugged into computer.

    Your battery is not faulty, so there is no need to go to an Apple Store.

    The not-charging symptom can sometimes occur on a jail broken device when it runs low on battery.

    Removed DFU instructions, as they are illustrated more clearly in the link above.

    I disagree. Jailbreaking is not proven to change the charging capabilities of a device in any way. Can you provide me with some links which demonstrate it? I've never seen "not charging" on a jailbroken device when connected to the wall outlet simply because the device is jailbroken. I'd be very interested to see evidence to the contrary.
    It is much more likely that this is a hardware fault. If the iPad wont charge from the iPad wall adapter it has noting to do with software and everything to do with hardware, whether that be battery, connector, or whatever.
