I have an ipad 2 that is stuck in recovery mode from failing an update.  It does not show up in iTunes or in My Computer but the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed and working properly.  I plugged my iPhone up to the same computer and it works just fine. I have tried everything I could find from all the forums and nothing has worked.  Un-installed and re-installed iTunes, restarted Apple Mobile Device USB Driver, restarted the computer, held Home and Power buttons down.....I have no clue what else to do! Can anyone help????...|ipad-2-stuck-recovery-mode

Good day everyone,My ipad 4th Generation is stuck in recovery mode. I tried using my ipad one night and it wouldn't turn on i.e. blank screen. I tried a hard reset but no dice. I connected it to my computer and iTunes came up indicating that the device was in recovery mode and needed to be restored. I did exactly that but when iTunes reaches "Waiting for ipad" it's not getting past that I point. On the ipad the Apple logo is there with a progress bar but it's not progressing. I tried it both on Windows and Mac and neither worked. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated....|ipad-4th-generation-stuck-recovery-mode

Ipad3 stuck in recovery mode. 5.1.1 OS. No backup. Data AT RISK. Tried Tinyumbrella 5.11/recboot/ redsn0w unsuccessfully. This happened while browsing yesterday and safari stopped working. I upgraded to 5.1.1 the day it was released about 10 days ago, but under backups I cant find that backup either. Tried DFU + redsn0w also. In sum, i am in a mess.
