    Details?

    Like, what version were you on before, what version are you trying to go to?
    What does iTunes do to prevent a restore?

    The 4.3.5 jailbreak is tethered. So, if you reboot, or your battery dies, you have to use the computer to boot. So, all you will see is the apple logo.

    So, plug into iTunes, do DFU mode (http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/27489-dfu-mode-dummies.html)

    Then iTunes will restore iPad to 4.3.5. Then, use the latest redsnow to jailbreak. Every time you power off, or the battery dies, you will have to run redsnow and deselect "install Cydia" and select "just boot tethered" to boot the iPad.

    I have deleted your other thread like this one. Please only take out one thread with the same topic. No need to duplicate them and put them in different sections.

    Hope you solved your problem.:)
