    So I have a Jailbroken iPad. Today, I tried connecting it to my computer, and it did not connect. Weird I thought, I restarted my computer (macbook pro), and still no go. I then restarted my iPad - still the same.

    Weird I thought, so I tried resetting my iPad. Still no go. I plugged it into the charger, does not charger. I tried two different USB cables and it still doesn't work.

    The weird part is, if I plug the iPad into the charger and I turn it off, then back on, it says "Not charging" in the upper right hand corner. When I unplug it and plug it back in, nothing...

    I'm pretty convinced the iPad is shot. Any other ideas? give me a holler! If it makes any difference, about 3 days ago I went into cydia and I updated all the new updates it had for me, 6 I believe. I don't think it's charged or connected since then. Could it be the updates bricked it? Also... I have not tried booting in DFU mode yet, do you think I should try that?

    Now, if Apple sends me a new one, will I be able to jailbreak again? I started Cydia on my iPad and my SHSS blops are saved for 3.2.1. If I get a new iPad, can I use those to jailbreak to 3.2.1 again? IF so how?

    Thanks guys!!!

    I'm really sad my iPad is not working. I really want to find a way to fix this.

    Answer to " If I get a new iPad, can I use those to jailbreak to 3.2.1 again?"

    No, the SHSH stored on Cydia/saurik Is saved with the iPads ECID, and the ECID Is unique for each iPad.


    I hardly think that Cydia Is the cause for your sync/connection/charging issue.

    Crap, so what do I do now?

    I bought my iPad at Best Buy just a little over a month ago? Should I return it and ask for a new one? Or call Apple up for Tech SUPPORT first?

    If no one else has a solving answer I would recomend u to talk with the "fruit" support, and IF u would turn It In with an jailbroken ios u will loose the case since jailbreaking voids your warranty.

    And as It now It sounds like u are stuck and not able to connect It to iTunes to make a restore that wipes out all traces of the jailbreak.

    So i would try DFU /Recovery mode, and as u have your existing SHSH saved u are safe to downgrade If u able to restore It through iTunes.

    You can do a complete wipe from the iPad itself, correct? I'm almost positive

    In settings you find a reset feature that sets It back to the state It was In when u first got It as new, activated offcourse.

    Settings --> General --> Reset / Erase All Content and Settings.

    U will loose your jailbreak, but Im not sure If It´s erase all traces of an jailbreak, But a .ipsw/restore through itunes does it 100%.

    should i try a hard reset first and see if that'll connect to itunes? Maybe i should try DFU mode first?

    if it does work after i hard reset, and i connect to itunes, will it make me upgrade to 3.2.2? I got it as a 3.2.1 so will it stay as that so I can jailbreak immediately?

    Thanks

    I would first try "Erase All Content and Settings" becuase It "maybe" could solve the connection problem.
    And If this work and the connection works i would go to DFU / Recovery mode and restore It directly to 3.2.1 via your saved SHSH, instaed of restore It from iTunes and be needed to downgrade from 3.2.2 to 3.2.1.

    This Is only what I would have tried.
