My kid accidentally put my i pad 2 into recovery mode. i have pictures and such i don't want to lose, so i"m trying to find a way out to exit recovery mode that wont delete all my files.
After hunting on Google i tried to use redsnow, but at start up it keeps asking to load an IPSW. i downloaded an IPSW file which i think is the correct one for my ipad 2 but when i try to load it up i get the massage "unable to recognize specified IPSW"
then I tried tiny umbrella after i "hit exit recovery mode" the ipad will turn off and restart back into recovery mode
tiny umbrellas log is

I then tired putting the ipad into udf mode and hitting the fix recovery button, the log says wait for reboot but the ipad never reboots.
i have little knowledge concerning programming and such and so am unsure how to or even if i could use more advanced jail breaking tool's to get the job done.
if anyone has any ideas how i might go about doing this i would be extremely grateful to hear them, and even if you don't thanks for taking the time to read this.
