iPad wont boot...

My iPad refuses to boot after I erased all the settings. I plug into my Mac, and iTunes also doesn't recognize it...Theres also 2 weird graphic strips next to the Apple logo...

I attached an image of the strips I'm talking about.

Looks like a hardware problem. Send it in to Apple.

Hmm. Really? Crap. Resetting the data would do this?

I am trying to sell my iPad ASAP. This stinks haha.

Well, if you've tried all the hard-reset combinations then there's not much else you can do.

Possibly the firmware didn't load up properly on reset. Who knows?

Those two strips are the codes from the jailbreakme.com jailbreak.

Google iPad DFU mode (if that doesn't return results, try iPhone DFU mode), and try to get your iPad into DFU. Once it is in DFU, iTunes should recognize it and allow you to restore.

Thank you very much!! That worked. I forgot that I had jailbroken it.
