Hi I was able to JB Ipad on latest FW and run Cydia, and install all required packages for it, but my problem is that after I install SBsettings I'm asked to Reboot Device but when it reboot it gets stock on the Apple logo. Anyone else having the same problem or know how to resolve it? Thanks

After I jail broke the iPad , installed few apps, then sbsettings, and reboot. IPad wouldn't come back, had the apple logo all night, the batteries died out . Next they recharged it with still apple logo on.. Problem, it wouldn't even detect the iTunes so I would restore... Had to take it back to apple store,, the genius bar, hooked it up to his laptop and had to do something special because it wouldn't detect itunes at the store too.. Finally the iPad started to restore by itself throughout the laptop but with no iTunes on or detected... Thankfully, iPad is up but haven't jail broke again, still waiting for fixes....

Hi In my case what I did after the new jailbreak is when Cydia asked to Reboot don't click on the Reboot but do Switch Off on the ipad, after hoocked it to laptop, open Resn0w, selected the "Jut Boot tethered right now" and was able to start the ipad. All working ok since them. What the probably did in the shop to manage to get the laptop to detect it was start the Ipad in DFU mode.

Um, this is a tethered JB. if you reboot the iPad, you need to have it hooked up to and resteart using the redsnow and the ispw. if you don't know what i'm talking about, you are best of to wait until a non-tethered JB is released.

Update 1 : Windows 7 or Vista users often need to use XP or 98 compatibility modes when launching redsn0w (right-click)

Just wanted to thank you for the pointer. Quite obvious really but i never thought of it lol Thanks again :-D

Safari is crashing after jaibreak. I'm trying now to un-jaibreak this, anyone know how to undo this ?

do the last step under "Important Note:" run redsnow again and check the box "just boot tethered right now" and go from there

Cydia does not work after jailbreaking.
Bryan - November 24, 2010 at 1:44am
Same for me, i tried booting back but redsn0w just stops working.
jipad - November 24, 2010 at 1:57am
i don't know the reason too, i have to try do it many time even restore the firmware and do the jailbreak from stretch but the cydia still does not work... may be because the cydia does not work that's why i don't need to jailbreak again after rebooting my ipad.
jipad - November 24, 2010 at 2:56am
i got it working now. you need to re-jailbreak again but select the "Just boot tethered right now"
