So I jailbroke my iPad using redsn0w. I had to reboot today, and when I tried to boot up, the redsn0w process got stuck on Uploading First Stage. I googled solutions, nothing reasonable, so I decided to do a restore via Itunes. Itunes did recognize the device, however it said that: The device appears to be in recovery mode, and must be recovered. Therefore I pressed recover, and itunes downloaded a software update for my iPad. Everything went great until it didn't do anything after the software update, and all of a sudden Windows says there is an error: Your device is not recognized. I look up the device on Windows, and it's an "Unknown device". Itunes doesn't recognize it. HELP! EDIT: Nevermind. I un-installed iTunes, which was causing the device recognition problems. Re-installed, and I'm currently restoring the iPad. Weird. But it worked.
