    I restored my Ipad 64gb 3g , i got stuck in recovery mode, i used redsn0w to reinstall the new firmware , then tethered restarted it. it worked fine for a while then its screen turned black. Before this i was looking at the sim card and it was in searching mode, cydia was there but the applications failed to install. itunes was detecting it and showing the application but the screen was black. I tried everything tinyumbrella rec1 redsnow greenpoison everything to restore it
    but when ever i attach it with computer itunes says ipad in recovery mode.

    i am stuck ......i dont know what wrong, battery was 76% at that time, now no apple logo no itunes usb mode image. nothin at all tried resetting it by holding power and home button etc....
    either i am doing something wrong or something bad has happened. I am living in the country where there is no apple store and even cant send it to apple.....

    if any one can tell me whats wrong?:mad::(:confused:

    A couple of questions, if you don't mind:

    What kind of iPad do you have - iPad1 or iPad2?

    What version of firmware were you running before all this started?

    What version of firmware were you trying to put on the iPad (as in, what firmware were you restoring to)?

    Answers to the above may help us get to the beginning/bottom of your problem.

    So either your screen if fried, or you are missing something in the instructions. If you turn the lights out, you should see a faint glow on the screen while it is restoring. If not, then I don't know what's up.

    I had the same problem. I discovered that I inadvertently made my screen protector out of opaque plastic film. Once I removed it, things were back to where I wanted them. I noticed how ugly my iPad is without a theme, however.
