Thread: Gah. My iPad auto-boots when the USB cable is connected.

    Default Gah. My iPad auto-boots when the USB cable is connected.
    I'm trying to jailbreak by iPad (1st gen, 4.3.3) using Redsn0w on windows. It instructs me to leave the device connected to the PC and powered off. The trouble is, the iPad boots up automaticly when the USB lead is connected.

    I've tried it with and without iTunes running, with and without the related service running, powering off first then connecting the lead, and connecting the lead before powering off.

    What am I missing here? How do I stop this behaviour?


    DISCLAIMER : I've searched the forum and google already

    If you cannot power off your ipad, it looks like you need to do a restore of your firmware again or your ipad has not been activated yet.

    This is normal behavior for iPads. Don't worry about it...proceed with the jailbreak instructions for entering DFU mode...it will work.
