    I upgraded my iPad from iOS 6 to iOS 7.1.2 and I've been trying to jailbreak it with Pangu but it fails every time. Pangu reboots the iPad and then waits for it to reconnect, but it never detects the rebooted iPad.

    Any ideas how to get around this?

    Just a few possible solutions I've come across...

    - Full factory restore before JB
    - Set the date to June 2nd, 2014
    - Turn off your computer's wifi
    - Airplane mode on your device

    A mistake my friend made at work:
    Confirm the computer you are using has iTunes installed.

    On top of these, be sure that it wasn't an OTA update. Full update through iTunes is required.

    Had the same problem with my 5s. The solution for me was to disable auto lock and passcode before running Pangu.

    I updated to 7.1.2 in iTunes, did a factory reset on the device, restored nothing and did the JB. That worked for me, I didn't bother restoring anything either.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try each one until the jailbreak succeeds.

    Make sure you turn 'auto lock' to never. That was one if the ratings that hiccuped me when JBing my 5s to 7.1.2.

    Thanks so much everyone. Disabling auto-lock and enabling Airplane mode finally allowed me to jailbreak my iPad 3.

    I updated to 7.1.2 through OTA... Will it not work anymore? It always says timeout... What should I do?

    You need to restore using iTunes.
