Hope someone here can help me.
I have been given an iPad 4 (newest version with lightening connector) which is stuck in soft DFU mode with a black screen. Redsnow gives this as the mode it's stuck in. I have no idea how it got to this position, I've just been asked to try and rescue the data from it. Apple store has already had a look and the "genius's" couldn't do anything with it.
I need to try and save the data on the device if I can so I'm looking for a way to kick it out of soft DFU and get it to either boot (preferred) or even into regular DFU so I can maybe tether JB or something. I just need to save the data.
I have tried, Redsnow, iReb, Tiny Umbrella all failed to kick it from the loop. Holding buttons to reset doesn't work just boots straight back into the soft DFU mode with no apple logo ever appearing. Always constant black screen.
Any help much appreciated.
