I used the "Erase all contents and settings" on a jailbroken iPad and now it won't restore. I tried going into DFU mode and restoring; however, I had no luck so far getting my iPad back alive again.I also tried using SnowBreeze, but no luck :( . Any help would be GREATLY appredciated!

uninstall AVG.

@spockers Will temporarily disabling it work?

no, and you need to edit your hosts file and remove all the lines that say apple. your hosts file is located at c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts and those lines are why dfu and then just restore does not work

I already edited the lines in c:windowssystem32driversetchosts. So I have to permanently remove AVG and try again with the restoration?

AVG requires removal, it's too persistent for a simple disable to be enough. You can always reinstall it afterward, just know that redsn0w won't work as long as you have AVG. I recommend MSE, it's free, lightweight and doesn't interfere with jailbreaking. (MSE=Microsoft Security Essentials).
