    So i jailbroke my ipad 2 and i didnt like it so i wanted to reset it so i went to settings/ general/ reset/ erase all content and settings/ after that the spinning wheel appeared on the ipad and it got stuck on it. I cant do anything the wheel is just spinning is there a way to get it out of it or just wait till the ipad dies and try through Itunes?? Please help me! Thanks in advance.

    Oh my. You've discovered the one thing a person with a jail broken device should never do - use the reset options in the Settings app. Bad juju for a jail broken iPad cause it will always cause the "spinning wheel of death."

    So, to fix it - put your iPad into DFU mode (tutorial here: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=27489). Then, connect it to iTunes. iTunes should recognize the device as needing a restore and, with some inputs from you, it should put a fresh iOS 5.1.1 on it. Hopefully, you have a recent backup that you can put back on after the restore is done. Regardless, once iTunes is finished restoring, your iPad should be running stock iOS 5.1.1.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.
