Hi all

Need some help please!

Had an iPad 1 16GB 3G, bought it second hand 2 years ago and I know it was from the USA. It came jailbroken on 5.1.1. Upgraded to an iPad 4G and restored from the iPad 1 backup.

I then did a full erase via Settings - General etc. on the iPad 1 to clear it out before selling it to a family member. Now, after setting language and region, it is unable to verify.

After the connect via wifi/iTunes, I get the "iTunes was unable to verify your iPhone." message (see below). I can't seem to work around it, can't Restore. Any way to get around it? Do I need to use a jb tool?

I have tried DFU mode. It connected to PC, downloaded software, and it's back to square one - "iTunes was unable to verify your iPhone."

Many thanks in advance!

Remove the sim card, power down/up iPad, run through setup connecting to your local wifi network, try complete the verification process over wifi without physically connecting iPad to iTunes.
