IPad 3 :: Stuck In Endless Recovery Loop / Data At Risk

I have ipad 3 + 5.1.1. Yesterday while browsing it went into recovery mode on its own.
1. I tried DFU (Redsn0w 09.b2) and recovery mode but it is not getting out of recovery mode at all.
2. I tried Tinyumbrella 5.11, Reboot 2.1 doesn't work.
Have tons of data NOT backed up. Don't want to lose it. Its gone into an endless recovery mode loop. It is not jailbroken. Latest backup not on icloud.

DFU Loop Stuck... Not Recovery Stuck?
I have an Ipad that I tried to Jailbreak. I used the greenp0ison method. It got half way and just hang for an hour. So I reset the Ipad. Now all it does is goes in to DFU mode. I can restore but every time I restore it goes back in to DFU mode. All I have is a black screen. I've tried running it on both MAC and PC to restore. I tried to restore normally and with a custom rom. I also tried tinyumbrella. The program allows me to kick it out of dfu mode and in to what it calls recovery mode (White screen) Once I tried to restore back in to DFU I go.

Can't Enter DFU Or Recovery Mode And Stuck In Boot Logo Loop?
I recently upgraded cydia on my tethered 4.2.1 ipad 1. At the end of the process it rebooted my ipad for me. I have rebooted my ipad before and had no problems tethering again, but this time I am not able to go into DFU or Recovery Mode, and it is stuck at the apple logo and restarts every few minutes. It will not boot enough to even connect to my computer through usb.

ITunes Endless Credit Card Loop
I can no longer download apps to my iPad due to an endless loop asking me to enter a valid credit card. This happens in iTunes and in the iPad's app store. The credit cards I've used to purchase apps have $25,000+ limits and just worked two days ago in iTunes. I've used them just today for other minor purchases elsewhere. I have tried 6 different credit cards with $20,000+ limits, with the correct addresses, security codes, and everything perfect. None are working now. Itunes loops and keeps saying "Your credit card was declined. This happens also when I try to set it up with two different VALID Paypal accounts.I can't even download FREE apps now! What gives? I'm on the latest version of iTunes.

IPad 2 IOS 5 Stuck In Set Up Loop
My iPad 2 is stuck in a set up loop on iOS beta 5. I have a dev account so that is not the issue here. Once the iPad finishes the set up load all my apps and such and the before I can tap anything goes back to the set up process. Pretty sure I just need to restore and be done with it, but I don't really want to since I am lazy and don't ever back up and haven't done a back up since I did the upgrade to iOS 5.

It Stuck In Boot Loop
My iPad is stuck in a boot loop. I've tried DFU and recovery mode with no success. I get different errors: 1601, 1611, 2001, and still other ones. Apple's site recommends me to check the connection. But my iPod Touch is syncing normally, and I've been trying two cables. And I've been trying on a PC and on a MacBook.

When I google my problem, most of the links are about jailbroken iPads, but mine is not.

Safari Launching YouTube Stuck In A Loop
I was visiting the YouTube website because the App only let's you post comments a couple of times before it says unavailable. On YouTube the capture kicks in to prevent spam but there you have the option to fill it in.

Anyway, I'm asked to log in on the main site and it triggers launching the App. Now every time I return to Safari it continues to immediately do it again. I don't have time to close the tab. I've tried wiping, history cookies and cache in the settings but that didn't work.

I've had to install the Atomic browser to come here. I don't want to do a full reset of everything just for this. I'm away from my desktop.

Jailbroken Stuck In Reboot Loop After Installing WinterBoard?
As the subject line says, I've just jailbroken my iPad (3G, 32G, iOS 3.2.1), and all was going well until I installed WinterBoard and it asked me to reboot. Now all I see it the white Apple logo for a few seconds then it reboots spontaneously, and this repeats forever.

Is this a know issue?

I assume I'll be able to restore my iPad when I get home and it will work normally again...

Ipad 2 Stuck On Boot Loop After Resetting All Settings
My Ipad 2 4.3.3 jb could not be turned off so i reset all settings wit restrictions code. I finally ended up with a resetting status bar which could't complete(stops nearly at the beginning). the Ipad then resets and the very known pleasant loop has already begun.

i am on vacation and don't have my computer with me. The Ipad is really loaded. Do you please have a solution without restoring? Can i do something with ifunbox for example?

After Sync, Re Syncs Sort Of 10mints Or More Times And Stuck In A Loop
This has been annoying me for ages. I've got several devices, had several iPhones and the procedure shold be:

1) connect to laptop
2) iTunes syncs device
3) iTunes says it's done syncing
4) device goes back to home (or lock) screen

With my iPad, after iTunes says it's done syncing, it gets stuck in a loop, sometimes for minutes at end, where the apple icon plus wait spinner comes up again and again with the sound that normally occurs when you first connect. This can't be right. So how exactly can I fix it? FWIW, I am completely up-to-date with OS updates.

15 MacBook Pro, iPhone 4
Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Stuck In Recovery - Downloaded The New 4.2 Beta
First off, if there's another thread about going from 4.2 Beta to 3.2.2 regarding this issue, please redirect me, couldn't find one. This is my story downloaded the new 4.2 beta as usual this week. Everything was fine until i realized my mobile authenticator app for blizzard wasn't working when trying to log in. I thought i could do a quick restore back to 3.2.2 and grab my backup that i have saved in itunes. During the restore process my ipad froze and 5 minutes later iTunes said the ipad can not be restored leaving me with no error number like others have had. once i clicked ok, itunes then repeated the original message of "discovered an ipad in recovery mode, please restore". It's like going around in circles with it.

Stuck In Recovery Mode - TinyUmbrella
I've had my iPad2 for a few moths now. It came with 4.3.3 installed so I jailbroke it straight away. Unfortunatly, I was too late to get the SHSH blobs for that version. Yesterday I was using the iPad as usual when it all of a sudden rebooted. This happens sometimes, so I just waited for it to come back up. The only problem was that instead it went into Recovery Mode.

Won't Restore (stuck In Recovery Mode Now) And Won't Boot
Ever since receiving m 32GB wifi iPad last Thursday all I seem to have had is problem after problem. After arranging for a replacement, I decided to restore the firmware to get rid of all personal data on the device, however the status bar gets almost to the end and then freezes. I have tried several times, and even left the iPad restoring over night, but it was still frozen by morning. I have even tried hard (cold) reboot with power and home held for 10 seconds but I get nothing!

Reset All Content And Settings - Stuck In Recovery ?
Yesterday there was something wrong with my iPad so I decided to do a Reset All Content and Settings, I have a jailbreak so I can't restore. (I have no SHSH.) The whole night there was an Apple on the screen and I really want to use my iPad now. I really don't want to Restore, then I will lose my jailbreak. When I exit Recovery there stays an Apple and when I exit DFU the same thing happened. How can I use my iPad without Restore?

Stuck In Recovery Model - Loaded Pages And Atomic Browser
I'm dealing with an irritating problem. I recently updated my ipad to os 4 with no problems and was enjoying it greatly. Afterward, I loaded Pages and Atomic Browser.Anyway, I was surfing the net on Atomic Browser and then turned the ipad off momentarily to grab something from the kitchen. When I came back, the Ipad would not start.I'd push the power button but nothing. After many attempts, I decided to start pushing the home screen button too to try and reboot it.After a while, it gave me the recovery mode screen with the pic of the usb cable pointing to the itunes logo.

I have an ipad 2 that is stuck on the recovery mode and displays error 1611 when you try to restore it.

He said the top error is normally what means it is bricked and an attempt to jailbreak it failed and bricked the ipad. Someone please help so I am not stuck with a fancy paper weight. Yes, the warranty has ran out on it. I bought the ipad second hand.

I have an iPad 1G OS: 3.2 and it's jailbroken i want to restore/update it to OS : 4.3.3 so i got tinyumbrella and iREB ( cause i was getting error 3194 then error 1604 ) with both of these programs running i was able to get the restore going.

Everything was fine and at the end itunes told me that my iPad was restored and it will appear on the itunes screen after 10 seconds but what i got was a message that itunes detects an iPad in recovery mode and it needs restoring. i've tried restoring it again but i get the same message. also my iPad's screen is now black, it won't turn on. i've tried pressing fix recovery in tinyumbrella but it won't work and i've tried pressing exit recovery but nothing happens and if i press the home and power buttons together nothing happens! i don't know what else to do. and my pc is windows vista not mac.

Is Their Any Risk Of Buying?
My only worry is that somehow people getting there later might not be guaranteed an ipad even with a reservation. Yet i know apple says in all the announcements that as long as you come between day time you will get an ipad. Anyone think there is any risk i won't get an ipad if i go later and if there isn't i don't see.

Risk Due To Dry Battery?
I am going on a vacation overseas, and will not be taking my iPad with me, for security reasons.I'm going to turn the iPad off when I leave. I don't want to leave it plugged into a power source, even an UPS. I live in an area where storms and lightening are too common. I don't want my iPad getting toasted from a power surge.
However, if the battery does run dry, is there any risk to the iPad, will I lose apps or information if this happens?

Reduce The Risk Of Mouse Induced Rsi
While using the ipad to surf they use random fingers to manipulate the screen and more interestingly the particular digit or hands used to achieve a particular operation zoom pan scroll at one moment are entirely different from those used to do the same thing a second time click fixed ui elements such as scroll bars on a fixed screen might actually lessen the risk of rsi.

Reboot Loop While Sync?
I have a really strange issue. Here is my system info:iPad 3G + Wifi 16GB. Windows 7 Professional x64 iTunes (Latest version) Windows XP Professional x86 iTunes (Latest version)
The problem I'm having, is if I plug my iPad into either of the above systems, it shows up in iTunes fine, and I can sync to it easily enough, but about 60 seconds after plugging it in, it reboots and gets into a reboot loop which can only be broken with a hard reset. Same thing if it starts up after a reset plugged in. Fine for 60 seconds, then restarts continuously.

Oddly, if I start it up unplugged, or if I connect it to a powerpoint, it's fine and runs with no problem. This started seemingly randomly yesterday evening.
