    So my wife tried to update her ipad2 from ios6 to 7 but she did it over the air not through itunes. She didn't know that it being jailbroken would cause it to go in a respring loop/dfu mode. Now it wont let us do anything with it, when i try restore in iTunes it tries to restore me to 6.1.4 for some reason but then gives an error code (3294?) saying it wont work.

    Im sure there's a way to fix this so we can just have a normal ipad on any software version with no jailbreak. But how??? Ive tried going into redsn0w and doing the recovery fix. It said it was doing a minor recovery fix or something but still no joy.

    basically we just want it out of recovery mode and back into a working ipad on any software.

    Any help would be amazing. Thanks guys.

    It wont let me restore, thats my point, lol. When i try it says its also going to update me to 6.1.4??? surely it should be updating me to ios7? But then it just fails anyway when trying to contact the servers to verify with apple. Error code 3294

    Can you download the latest ipsw file for your device via iClarifed? I'm not on my computer so I don't have the exact link handy. If or when you download it to your computer, go back into DFU mode and press either the options key or the shift key (depending on your computer) while also pressing the restore button to direct iTunes to the ipsw file you just downloaded.

    Here you go. Way easier to navigate than iClarified. At least for me. Good luck.
