http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/41786-trapped-dfu-loop.html As you can see I'm revisiting this topic to appeal the sympathy and vast intellect of the posters on this forum. I am trapped in a DFU Loop still, yet recently I was able to boot onto tethered 4.3.3 firmware via Redsn0w. Annoying as having a tethered iPad was, I was content with living with it. That was until I ran out of battery power. The plug for my charger fell out one night and my iPad shut down. "No problem," I thought. "I'll just boot it right back up into Tethered." Except this time there wasn't any backlight, or any response from my iPad except the acknowledgment that my device was outside DFU mode like normal after a Tethered boot. I am at my wit's end. I will swear up and down that if it's a hardware error then I certainly didn't cause it. I don't know what else to call it but bricked. Can someone help me? Please? Is there something I've been doing wrong?
