I wanted to upgrade my iPad from iOS 7 to iOS 8.1. I downloaded an IPSW from ipswdownloader.com and tried updating by alt+clicking the update button. The update process stopped at around 10%. I tried restoring the same way, again stuck at around 10%. See this: http://cl.ly/image/2a1S37272C27
The iPad is now in an infinite recovery loop. I tried several tutorials available online to exit out of recovery mode but no success. Tried entering DFU mode and then restoring, nope.. again stuck at 10% as shown in the image above.
Can anyone help me with this?
Update: I also tried using TinyUmbrella for OSX but the application get stuck at "Verifying libraries"
It's like every door I go to, slams shut on me. :(
