    iPad 1 3g, iOS 5.01 jb


    My ipad stuck in endless reboot state. Can be forced to recovery or DFU mode and then itunes ask to restore. But after initial restore process & ipad required to reboot, my ipad stuck in endless reboot state again.

    I have tried redsn0w's 'Fix Recovery' but when redsn0w in 'Waiting for reboot' my ipad stuck in endless reboot state again.

    What should I do?

    Thx.

    Try not doing a restore, set it up as a new device and check if it still reboots.

    Not sure if this will work as you already tried to use fix recovery but have you tried TinyUmbrella as it also has an option to "Exit Recovery" as well as "Fix Recovery". Might be worth a try. Good luck and keep us posted on the results.

    I just noticed that your iPad was jail broken before. Are you installing a standard IOS 5.1 or a jail broken version?

    Same problem for me...

    ipad2 stuck with the dreaded whit apple. I tried to restore using itunes but the battery was low and it didn't work (shouldn't it get power from the host computer when linked?)

    I don't know about the iPad 2 but my new iPad will not charge while hooked up to my PC. You might want to hook it up to a power supply for a while before trying to update the firmware.

    In fact, I had the ipad on charge for 6hrs plus and it was only showing 11% battery charge??

    Maybe it's a problem only when 'stuck' in the white apple mode..

    Well that sucks. Do you have another Mac or PC that you can use and try to restore on it? Might be worth a try. I ran into a problem like that on an iPhone 3GS and it took many tries before I could get it out of the loop.
