Good answer. :) You should also be able to come out of DFU by simply holding power and home button for like 15 seconds. It should then power back up. But like gomanski said, try GP again :) GOod Luck!

It could be that you're still in DFU mode if it "doesn't turn on."

In DFU mode, the screen should be black.

What happens if you launch iTunes and plug the iPad in.

Does iTunes come up with the following message:

Restore Mode

If so, then you're still in DFU mode, and you should try running greenpois0n. You will need an active internet connection for it to work.

If it still doesn't work, you may want to try downloading TinyUmbrella and using it to "Exit Recovery" on your device.

Thanks that worked. But what about not seeing the skull icon and not being able to fully jailbreak it?

Are you already on the 4.2.1 firmware, and do you have iTunes installed (if it's a PC)? These can keep you from being able to complete the jailbreak.
