    Hi all,

    I'm passing down my iPad 2 to my little sister. I thought i'd completely wipe the thing before I gave it to her so she can start with a "clean slate".

    I went in to the settings on the iPad 2 and tapped through the buttons to erase absolutely everything.

    It's been about an hour now and the progress bar under the small Apple logo :apple: has not moved at all. Is this normal? I thought it was a relatively quick process.

    It is a 16gb (4gb free at the time of wipe) WiFi model, and the update is 4.3.3.

    Now this is where I think something might be going wrong; the iPad is Jailbroken.

    Has anyone had any experience with this? I've had a little look on Google and can find something similar but for the iPhone 4, and i'm kind of stumped :confused:

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    was the 4.3.3 blob saved when apple was still signing it?

    if so, a dfu restore will be the quickest way to get it back to the factory default.
