    Default Problem upgrading ipad from ios 5 to ios 6

    was trying to upgrade a jilbroken ipad with ios 5 to ios 6. Some how it got blocked as it is showing only the itune connection icon on the screen. However after connecting it to itunes, itunes doesn back iy up as it is jailbroken. Does anybody have a good idea as to solve this issue. I tried DFU mode but is not working either

    Many thanks in advance

    Okay... if I understood your post (no guarantees there) you are in Recovery Mode. In this mode iTunes doesn't bother trying to back up the device. That should've been done when it was still operational. If the "issue" you're referring to is backing up the iPad, it's too late unless you want to run data recovery software.
    So, enter DFU mode again and hit restore. That should get you to iOS 6. If you run into errors, write their numbers and report back.
