    I was previously given a iPad 2 running on the firmware 5.something (not sure about the full numbers, only sure that it was 5 and over), when i was given it the iPad 2 was already jailbroken and had cydia with other addons from cydia. My dad yesterday decided to "help" me and try to update it to ios 7. When i found out the ipad was stuck in recovery mode, i tried to restore it using itunes (latest version) yesterday but the message "itunes has detected a ipad in recovery mode, you must restore it to use it" kept on popping up during the restore every single 10-20 minutes. I ignored the messages and when i check again in a couple of hours the restoring looks to be have finished but my ipad is still in recovery mode. what should i do? Sorry if this is in the wrong section btw im new to this :D

    Try restoring using this tutorial by my fellow moderator, f4780y: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    If you follow all the steps exactly as written, you should end up with a stock iPad running the newest iOS. Then, you can re-jail break it if you wish.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.
