08-10-2010, 09:17 AM #1iPad won't turn back on after jailbreak.
I used jailbreakme.com.
After I jailbroke, something happened with Safari and I couldn't tap on anything.
So I turned my iPad off. I tried turning it back on, but it was stuck at the screen with the apple the WHOLE time until the battery died out.
Right now, I have it plugged in to my computer, and when I try turning it on, it won't turn on. When I press on the power button and home button together, nothing happens.
Edit: I'm able to turn it on with the pwoer button, but it's stuck at the screen with the apple.

You'll probably need to put your iPad in recovery/restore mode and then restore back to normal, and re-try jailbreaking. It happened to me a few times as well, and on the 4th try, the jailbreak took.
Plug your iPad into your computer. Hold the Power Button + Home button together. Let the Apple disappear. Then remove your finger from the Power button and keep holding Home button. After a few seconds - a few minutes, you're computer should beep, and itunes should open and want to restore you iPad back to normal.

Should I just hold down the home button if there's no apple screen?
Just the plain dark screen.

Press power button and home button for 10 seconds (till ipad turns off) then take ur hand off the power button but keep holding the home button and it will then take you to DFU mode then plug it in and it will say it is in recovery mode, so then restore to ipsw 3.2 or 3.2.1 or whateer u want.
If u need more help tell me.

Thanks you two, but, the screen with the apple isn't turning on.
It's just the plain ol' dark screen with no apple.

I have almost the same problem when installing any application from cydia such as backrounder or multiicon mover>>> it stucks with the apple logo.
But when i restore everything is fine.
How long would it take to respring after installing these kinds of app and do u have any idea why is this happening and how can i install these app??
