    Default iPad only showing apple logo. Help!

    I did the redsnow tethered jailbreak today and when I downloaded my first cydia app it asked to reboot after the install. I did and it went to the apple logo, and it just sits there now. What do I do?

    Redsn0w currently only offers a tethered jailbreak. Meaning each time you need to reboot your phone you will have to do so using redsn0w. What you want to do now is plug your phone into the usb port, open redsnow, browse for the OS just like you did when you jailbroke the first time, let it process, hit next, and it will patch the kernal, then unclick the box next to install cydia and click the box next to just boot tethered, then you will have to turn your phone off and put it into DFU mode just like you did when you jailbroke, then your phone will boot up. Until an untethered JB comes out this is how you will have to boot your phone.

    Here is a video that can walk you through the reboot process. Once you do the process, you will be able to do it like a pro the next time you need to reboot, its actually pretty simple.

    It really was not that bad was it? Now that you know the process of rebooting, it will be like clock work next time you have to do it.
