How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iPad wifi + 32 GB. It was jailbroken(untethered) on ios 4.2.1 with greenpois0n and it was working perfectly fine. A few days back it suddenly rebooted while I was browsing a website.It has been on an endless reboot loop. I tried restoring it with iTunes and I got " error 9 ". To resolve the error as stated by Apple, I changed usb cables and ports but to no avail. If I try to jailbreak it(Greenpois0n) on DFU mode, at the end I see "No successful firmware dowload after 6000 ms , Giving up" or something like that. Please help me. I am really sad as I dont think I have the money to buy a new one. The place where I stay has no Apple Service center. Please help. Thank you!

Can you get it turned off, by holding both buttons until it goes off then release, if it reboots you were too slow. Once off connect to itunes while pressing/holding the home button until itunes picks it up in recovery mode and prompts you to restore, then do so, you'll end up on 4.3.1 but thats not a concern. Then jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc11.

So in recovery mode or dfu mode you get error 9 when restoring to stock firmware?

Do you have wifi sync on your comp?, and do you actually have the 4.3.1 ipsw on your comp, has itunes downloaded it at all?

Lol, no not any security software running, have you tried another computer, do you have acopy of the 4.3.1 in your ipad software updates folder ?

I just said that so you could get some extra info . Not that I didn't know what you meant. I have disabled My avg anti virus and turned off windows firewall.
