    As you are talking about a jailbroken iPad, I've moved your post to the iPad Hacking forum, where it will receive more attention.

    Have the ipad connected via the USB cable to the computer (with iTunes closed). Then, put it into DFU mode (the steps are here if you need a refresher: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=27489).

    Once you're in DFU mode, open iTunes. It should recognize the iPad as needing restore. Follow the prompts and iTunes will proceed to install iOS 6.1.2. Once it's done, you should have a stock iPad running that iOS.

    Hopefully, you have a recent backup that you can use during the restore process to put the iPad back the way it was (minus the jail break, of course)....

    That should do it. Good luck and please let us know how you get on.

    P.S. Well, I know you know this [now], but for those reading - this is why you don't use the Reset tab in your iPad's Settings app. :)
