    I Jailbroke my iPad (with spirit), but after a few days I wanted to restore it again.
    After I restored it, iTunes told me it will be available in 8 or so seconds. After that time passed, my iPad told me to connect to iTunes. iTunes could find my iPad, but I could not do anything with it, see screenshot. I tried restoring from both DFU mode and Restore mode a couple of times, but had the same problem.
    Please Help
    I have:
    a MacBook Pro running 10.5.8
    iTunes 9.1.1
    iPad 64 GB WiFi

    Look for a Windows PC and try there. I had the same thing occasionally with iPhones and the only way to get it restored again, was using a PC......odd, but worked.

    Seems to have something to do with the way Macs handle certain things. PC are more "brute force".

    That really does not make sense. I provide support for iPhones and have had no problem at all restoring even after multiple attemps and methods. All on Macs. Switching to pc 's never made it better or worse if it did not work it was replaced UW

    Just trust me on this one. I am hacking and unlocking iPhones since they are on the market.

    Sometimes the Mac doesn't get it done. And then your only hope is a PC.

    I agree, jailbreaking is always on your own risk and you should have good knowledge about what you want to do and achieve.

    Sad enough, most users think, that reading good advices on the web is good enough to be an "expert". THIS IS NOT THE CASE!!!
