    I have an ipad running 5.1.1 OS that has been Jailbroken.

    I was opening up Pandora (an appstore app) today and it mysteriously ended up in recovery mode. I have tried numerous guides and tools that report to be able to get it out of being stuck in recovery mode but none of them have been succesful.

    I have been able to get it into DFU mode a couple of times but I'm not clear on what technique managed it. I can't even seem to turn the ipad off.

    I really don't want to upgrade to the latest firmware to fix it because I'll lose lots of data alongside losing my jailbreak. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to proceed.

    Thanks in advance

    The data portion of it is extremely difficult to resolve even with professional tools. Considering that it's iOS 5.1.1, you can try mounting the ramdisk on your iPad 3 and extracting the dmg image out of your iPad, re-restore your iPad to 5.1.1 (assuming you have iOS 5.1.1 blobs or Semirestore recognizes your device), extract the desired images from the dmg archive and restore them onto your device.

    End result would be a fresh iOS 5.1.1 iPad 3, and a "backup" of your device that you can use again.

    >>Considering that it's iOS 5.1.1, you can try mounting the ramdisk on your iPad 3 and extracting the dmg image out of your iPad,
    Can you do this when it is only in DFU mode - or more to the point, without booting fully into the OS (which I can't do)

    Unfortunately Semirestore requires you to be able to boot into the OS so that's not an option. I don't have a 5.1.1 blob, but I can cydia appears to have a 6.0.1 blob I might be able to use.

    Whoops. Was thinking about boot logo and dimmed boot logo. You're right.

    And extracting via Ramdisk is done in SSH while the device is in DFU mode
