Thread: New iPad 3 WIFI 4G Redsn0w Jailbreak Failed (3986)

  1. #1
    Default New iPad 3 WIFI 4G Redsn0w Jailbreak Failed (3986)
    Finally got Redsn0w to go past 82% in Step 1 Preparation (many tries and nothing really different this time). Went to 100% Backup then permanent flash " Jailbreak Failed - Service Wouldn't Start (3986)

    Anyone know how to get past that? Many thanks any help appreciated...

    BTW Absinthe would not jb this device. Only runs up about 25% on first window - Hangs - until you get the MS has to close it Flag...

    (i have had all ipad 1.2.3) jailbroke all three too
    i installed acid siri( as was supost to be safe but when you uninstall
    it currupted my ipad there was no siri dictation button and it was ripped out of my settings too!
    i tried to restore and got error 1602 over and over tried red snow and started recovery and it stalled out!
    leaving my ipad in half dfu
    nothing would work not redsnow or itunes - it was very badddddd
    then i treid dfu from redsnow unpluged !then used xp netbook with older itunes and it restored no problem
    try a different computer with itunes - im finaly re jailbroken with absinth 2.0 (1st release) (update rocky raccon after in cydia)
    ~ so ipad 3 4g jailbroken with absinth 2.0 1 st release
    ps it was ok to run absinth to re jailbreak but not to restore with redsnow or itunes on 1 st computer
    just had to restore with other computer
