    I recently tried to update my ipad 3 to ios 7 using itunes which was previously on 5.1.1 and was jailbroken (yes i know... i should have restored the JB before using itunes...) My ipad has been stuck in the recovery mode loop for two days now. I tries using redsn0w and it did not work, tried tiny umbrella. I also cant restore my software to an IPSW that i downloaded. Does anyone have any other tricks to try to get me out of this recovery loop? When im out, whats the best way to approach upgrading to ios 7 and then re-jailbreaking using evasi0n 7?

    Put it in DFU mode and restore after that.

    Press both the Home and Power buttons until the device powers off.

    Connect your ipad to your computer, then open itunes. Now press the home button and power button simultaneously. As soon as the device shuts down leave the power button and press only the home button. This will put your ipad to DFU mode.

    He is already in DFU mode. See post #5 and the bottom of the photo in his previous post.

    It's already been said many times already, use iTunes to update to iOS 7. Redsn0w is NOT needed.

    When I restore in iTunes I. DFU mode I get the apple logo and the loading bar, but it never loads. It's been sitting at 0% for about 20 minutes.

    Thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate your time.

    Did you get the ipsw file for iOS 7 from another website or iTunes?

    No, it won't. You cannot enter DFU mode that way.

    Now Andrew, how far have you gotten to this point? You'll definitely want to upgrade your iTunes, but I trust you've already done that as it'll require you to download the new iTunes to get iOS7.

    I'm trusting you've kept your iPad plugged in so it maintained a charge. That way it never left DFU.
    When you open iTunes, what does it say about your device, if anything?

    When I plug the Ipad into the latest version of iTunes (I'm using a brand new mac book air) it asks me to update and restore. It tells me that the Ipad is updating and automatically disconnects it from iTunes. From this point I havethe apple logo and loading bar on my Ipad screen but it never loads.

    Install iTunes on that and restore. This will rule out a problem with your Mac.
