    Hello there guys.

    Well, I recently bought a non-working iPad off of the internet.
    The issue was that it could not activate, thus not being able to reach the home screen.

    To begin with, I thought that if I SSH into my iPad and delete the setup.app file, than the iPad wouldn't have to go through the process of the setup and the activation and I would be able to reach the home screen.

    Unfortunately, I was mistaken.

    Anyways, I need someone to SSH into their iPad 1st generation and grab the setup.app file that I need. (this file being deleted created a domino effect and ruined most of the iPad, not even being able to restore the damn thing)

    The directory would be Raw File System > Applications > setup.app

    This is obviously just a favor from one of you, so, I ask. Please help!

    Why don't you just restore it or download, decrypt, extract the needed files? Posting any part of iOS is not allowed by Apple's copyrights that cover iOS.

    I'm not able to restore the iPad due to the deletion of setup.app.

    Also, I can't find the exact files to decrypt...

    Put it into DFU mode, then plug it into iTunes and click restore.

    FYI in the future whenever you SSH into your iOS device, ALWAYS copy the file(s) to your computer instead if just deleting them, especially when you are experimenting and unsure of the outcome.

    Sorry about your problem. I think you should follow Intell's suggestion and DFU restore your device. That's the only way for sure to know everything is back in working order.

    The regular iTunes restore doesn't work for me... I get error code 23.

    The only way to restore is if I use the redsn0w way. It works for me, but not anymore since I don't have the setup.app.

    Fixed this.

    I was able to decrypt my iPad's firmware's IPSW and extract the setup.app.

    I added setup.app to my iPad using iFunBox.


    Thanks for everything guys!
