Hi guys, I recently received a bricked iPad from a friend to see if I could revive it. So far I had no luck. A bit of background: As far as I know, the iPad has never been jailbroken or anything like that. During a normal update (I guess to 5.1.1) through iTunes it somehow crashed (that's what he told me). After that it was stuck in a recovery loop (always booting into "connect to iTunes logo"). Trying an update-restore through iTunes fails. Usually with a 1603 or 1604 error. No luck from DFU mode either. I'm working on windows PCs (Win 7 Ultimate 32 or 64 Bit depending on PC). iTunes is latest version, also tried different computer different cables (all known to be working with my 4S). I also tried to search the web for the last days and tried several approaches I considered worth trying. Unfortunately most of was I have found was for bricked iPhones 3G/3GS. Could somebody please try to support me to get the iPad back to a usable state? I don't care if it will end up jailbroken, on original iOS or whatever. Also I don't care about any data recovery. I "simply" want to be able to use it again and not using it as a paper weight. If you need any other data (like log files, iRecovery output, etc...) just let me know and I try to provide it.
