    Firstly you have to plug the i Pad to the computer and open the "iTunes".

    Now put your i Pad device into DFU mode so that you will restore the device.
    For putting the device into DFU mode by just follow the steps:

    Turn "OFF" your i Pad and "HOLD" down power button for 3 sec.

    After enter into DFU mode your i Pad screen goes blank and get pop up message in iTunes apps “Device in Recovery Mode".

    This process will take at-least 10 minute for processing so never disturb or do any thing with device.
