How to fix some mysterious problems.


so the problem I had a few minutes ago was this: I started the latest greenpoison for Windows (rc6?) and did everything it said. Close itunes, etc. I only forgot to shut down my ipad before starting greenpois0n. What happend then is I did as they said, hold sleep, hold home button etc. and my PC made sounds that a device was taken out of the PC and again in. But after I did that, it just said try again. Something didn't work. And the biggest problem was, my iPad wouldn't want to start anymore or be recognized by iTunes. By pressing and holding several buttons I somehow could start him again.

The main question is now, was it only, because I forgot to shut off the iPad? Or was it something else and I should wait for a patched version. Because I don't want to have that problem with my iPad again and at the moment I'm just happy my iPad still works...

I'm very thankfull for responses :)

try putting it in DFU mode again then retry. If it does not work then download the greenpoison again sometimes files can get corrupt during downloading or extracting the zip files

I just pressed and hold the home, sleep and volume down button. More or less randomly, but after a time it worked for me
