How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm really stuck with my ipad and I hope somebody can help me. I want to give my ipad to my mother, so i thought i would be easy to just erase all settings and contents, only i didn't know my ipad was jailbreaked. So now it's in restore mode. I tried using redsnow en I did succeed in putting it in DFU mode so itunes recognized it but when i tried to restore itunes told my build was not eligible ... .

Ii really hope somebody can help me, because it's driving me crazy. Just to warn you 3 hours I never even heard of jailbreak.

Just click restore in iTunes without selecting an IPSW.
