hey everyone.. i have an ipad 2 and it has a very annoying problem.

I had the ipad 2 for less than a year.. maybe 3 months tops? and.. about a month after i bought it, the home button stopped working most of the time when i press it. i dont know why this is. i take good care of it and never have pressed the button hard enough. but for some reason i always ignored it since i always used the gestures to get out of apps anyways.. but lately i just realized just how annoying it is not being able to use the damn home button. after searching for a fix people said they took it back to the shop and they got a replacement. so i decided thats what i'm going to do, after all i spent quite the $$$ on it and i expect everything to work after just a few months.

so back to my original question, since i read jailbreaking makes your warentee useless (it does right?) so would anyone be kind enough to explain to me how to unjailbreak my ipad 2? can i simply reformat the ipad and would that remove it?

thanks guys.

cant just restore with itunes.

Just restote with itunes.

ok that failed misserably. Keep getting error 9014. Then tried using tinyumbrella and the error changed to 1602, then to 1604, then 11 blah.

have an ipad2 wifi 5.0.1 with unthetered jailbreak. Since i do not use any app in the jailbreak want to just kill it completely and benefit from upgrades and warranty.

had already tried with ipsw 5.0.1, 5.1.1 and 6.0 all restores fail.

any clue?
