    So a couple of months ago i decided to update my jailbroken ipad 2 into ios 6(before ios 7 came out) and i forgot that if you update your jailbroken iDevice it gets stuck in recovery mode. After i pressed update everything was looking fine until it just stopped and showed the connect to itunes screen and i connected it to iTunes. I then tried to restore it and it didnt work so gave up. so now i dont have the same computer and i saw my ipad2 laying around and i decided to give it another shot, and i failed. i tried this on redsnow extras>evenmore>restore and i put the ipsw that i donwloaded (i have blobs for the ipsw the blobs i have for the ipsw are 6.1, 6.0.1, and 5.1.1) i tried the 6.1 and 6.0.1 and it said to put the 4.x ipsw to which i have blobs saved to, I DONT HAVE 4.x BLOBS! and then tried to re-restore with the 5.1.1 ipsw and it says re-restore failed. i have also tried the simple recovery fix button on redsnow and it says it isnt yet supported on the ipad2. i have also tried tinyumbrella. ALL HAS FAILED!! please help me fix this, i have tried everything i know!

    Interesting, as step 2 (fix hosts file) is to resolve this error. Did you skip that one, or did you perform it as well?

    You'll find valuable information in the other posts of that thread as well. Maybe they'll help.
