How to fix some mysterious problems.

i went to jailbreak my iPad 2 7.0.4 and for got to turn passcode off and now it is stuck in a boot loop I’ve tried both DFU and recovery to restore, it starts the restore then says preparing iPad for restore then after a while it goes to waiting for iPad then after that it gives me an error that is labeled 4005, i have tried to download the ISPW and shift clicked on restore and that don’t work either, is my device permanently bricked or is there any way to fix this issue? Please help i can’t afford a new iPad right now and i use it on a daily basis for important school work and such. Please get back to me before January 2nd that is when i go back to school.

Disable any computer antivirus you have running. Connect device to computer with latest iTunes, place in dfu, once iTunes recognizes devices, click iTunes RESTORE button.

Thanks for getting back to me in time. I was having an issue with windows explorer and I simply reset my computer which didn't work at first then I disabled my anti virus software then the error went away. Thanks you are a life saver.
