    That's a good point though. SOMETIMES, sn0wbreeze does not let you push the start button when you are trying to go into DFU mode. This just seems to be a bug in the program.

    In this case, exit sn0wbreeze, restart it, but then SKIP to the same point in the process by simply choosing "iReb" in the menu at the top of the tool..., and when it asks you if you are trying to Jailbreak an AppleTV, say "No". Then you should be back where you were and able to press the "Start" button.

    Thanks for the reminder. I'd come across this a couple of time and forgot to come back here and update the post.

    Help! I followed everything until when I tried to restore from iTunes and I get this:

    The iPad "iPad" could not be restored at this time because the iPad update server could not be contacted or is temporarily unavailable.

    I am upgrading from 3.2.2 to 4.3.3. I can't even turn on my iPad now and its stuck in recovery mode....

    Pls help T_____T

    Well, either the server is not available in which case you should try again. This does happen sometimes, but ususally only briefly.

    Otherwise, it is likely you are not pointing at Apple Servers. Did you use TinyUmbrella to save your Blobs, or did you change your hosts file to point gs.apple.com to Cydia? If you think you may have, you should follow the instructions in this posts and it will resolve this problem for you (I know you don't have this exact error but the resolution is the same).

    Then return to the tutorial and restore the firmware. Use the iREB tool in sn0wbreeze to get back to pwnd DFU state and then restore as normal...

    Hope that helps.

    "If the restore hangs in one place for more than 5-10 minutes there has likely been a problem."

    I got this problem.
    What should I do?


    edit:

    i take out the usb cable and didnt make a jailbreak(4.3.1) over a jailbreak (4.3.3)
    it worked

    I am unable to use sn0wbreeze to jailbreak my iPad. I have tried every combination of techniques and nothing seems to work.

    The first time I tried using sn0wbreeze I got as far as the point where the restore process with iTunes has started, and the screen on the iPad shows the sn0wbreeze logo and a progress bar. At this point the upgrade failed. Can't remember itune error code at the time.

    Now my iPad is in the standard recovery mode (screen displays the iTunes icon and USB cable).

    I have subsequently tried the following steps to no avail:
    - disabled antivirus real time monitoring
    - disabled firewall
    - set sn0wbreeze to work in Win XP sp2 mode with admin privileges
    - Used the iREB function of sn0wbreeze to put the iPad in DFU Mode. Software reports that iPad is now in DFU mode.
    - start iTunes, which detects iPad and prompts me to restore it.
    - I select the sn0wbreezed 5.0.1 firmware and continue.
    - after some USB connecting and disconnecting sounds by Windows, the iPad launches into a screen showing the sn0wbreeze logo and a progress bar.
    - After some time and no visual progress in the progress bar, the iPad resets itself into the regular restore mode (screen shows iTunes logo and USB cable) and iTunes returns an type 21 error message.

    I am now completely stuck as to what to do. I have also tried restoring the standard iOS 5.0.1 firmware from Apple, but this also doesn't work. In this case a similar thing happens. Ipad shows Apple logo and progress bar. After a while of no progress the iPad restarts into standard update mode and iTunes returns an error.

    I have tried switching USB ports on computer but no luck either.

    Another point is that when the iPad is detected by iTunes as being in recovery mode, it lists the iPad as having the following properties (Name: iPad; Capacity: n/a; Software version: n/a; Serial number: n/a).

    Would really appreciate any suggestions.

    iTunes: 10.5.1.42
    sn0wbreeze: 2.8b11
    ipad: 64 GB, 3G first generation iPad
    iOS: 5.0.1
    OS: Windows 7 64 bit

    From this sticky (http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24377-jailbreaking-methods-ipad.html), it appears that sn0breeze cannot/does not jail break the iPad1 on iOS 5.0.1.

    Have no fear, however, as redsn0w does. See this sticky for how you can jail break your iPad1 on iOS 5.0.1: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lbreak-ipad1-ios5-tethered-using-redsn0w.html

    You will also need to download iOS 5.0, which you can get from here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html. You need that IPSW version because you have to initially point the redsn0w software at that version to have it work. It'll still be running on iOS 5.0.1 after the jail break, but redsn0w isn't updated [yet] to jail break 5.0.1. This is a workaround that I can attest works just fine.

    Don't forget the all-important step of re-booting the iPad afterwards (and every time it loses power, whether a shut down or a reboot)...

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.
