    Please help....

    i have an Ipad2 ios 5.1.1 jailbroken and i've been trying for 3 weeks to update to ios 6 and remove the jailbreak...
    well now it will not boot up past the apple logo and it will not restore in iTunes i keep getting an error about the IOS Firmware being corrupted
    i have tried to download the software through itunes and off the internet with safari , firefox and google chrome.
    please help

    i have also tried this on 3 different computers, xp, windows 7 and Mountian Lion

    also DFU and Recovery mode do not help the situation it still says in iTunes error

    "The iPad "iPad" could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt "
    Disconnect and reconnect, then try again.

    my mac is totally updated along with the other computers as well... please help

    Do you have tiny umbrella installed? If you do, make sure that the boxes to restore with itunes are checked or unchecked.
