    Unless I’m mistaken, without access to a computer and iTunes, you’re S.O.L.

    As Just said your in a S.O.L situation unless you can get tour hands on a computer of s family members or friend. You would need to download the current ispw to get yourself out of the situation your in. Also I don't recommend jailbreaking at this point in time. But I do tip my hat off to you for attempting what you did with out a computer. Best of luck

    Welcome to iMore!

    Gonna have to agree with the others. Without a computer and iTunes you have no way to put your tablet into DFU mode so you can reset the device. Either find a friend with a computer you can borrow, or set an appointment with the Genius Bar at your local Apple store. Be up front with them and tell them what you did to the tablet so that they can help you.
