    Hi!

    I recently decided to "un-jailbreak" my iPad with the help of reset functions (factory reset while it was not plugged in to my computer) in the settings menu.
    What happened was devastating to me since it somehow managed to fail and not reset fully.
    This led to the problem that my iPad never shows up in iTunes when i connect it to my computer (thus i cannot reset it via iTunes or the computer).

    Therefore i turn to you, the experts, to ask if you would know of any good ways to completely reset it?
    I've tried every reset there is in the settings menu without success..

    Big thanks in advance, and if someone manages to help me with you would really be a life-saver!

    Kind regards,
    Erik

    One thing you should never do with a jailbroken iPad is use the reset function without being connected to your computer. The reset has to be initiated from iTunes in your computer, not from the iPad.
    Have you seen this tutorial? Follow it exactly, and you will have a properly functioning iPad on the current iOS.

    Thanks a lot for answering!
    I definitely regret it a lot now of course, but was not aware of what consequences it could have..

    I think you forgot to send the link to the tutorial?
