    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.

    Glad you share with us .
    I know I had a similar problem when upgrading to 4.2.1
    Only when I moved my iPAD to another Computer with another iTune, It started to be recognized, and finished the JOB.
    You seemed to have a similar problem, that was solved with a new iTune installation on the same computer.
