I jailbroke my iPad iOS 4.2.1 (tethered) and updated mobile substrate, Cydia asked me to reboot my iPad and i did. iPad stuck on Apple logo for 3-4 minutes then turned off and booted again but again didn’t surpassed the Apple logo for 3-4 minutes and cycle continues. I tried hard reboot but no luck. Then i tried  “just boot tethered now” and it works like charm.

2. From the next screen, select “Just Boot Tethered Right Now” and then click Next again.

3. Follow the on screen instructions to enter in to DFU mode and your device will be boot properly in seconds.

    To everyone that is having problems booting and cydia not working and all that, for everything to work, you must boot tethered with redsn0w everytime you boot. Yes, this is annoying, but thats just Apple being Apple for you. Anything that the jailbreak changes such as adding Cydia and modding Safari won’t work unless you tether boot it. This is why most people’s boot the first time. Once you install something that effects something like the springboard, it won’t let you boot at all unless it is tether booted. Hopefully a fix for this will be found soon.

    Thanks Nick, as he said (at least I think so);

    -You get your redsnow (thats what I used) (and set it to boot tethered now) to the page where it says to turn your device off but make sure its plugged in. BUT don’t go any further.

    -You then do the reset process (holding the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button) But when the screen goes blank, You’ve gotta click the next button on redsnow and follow the instructions to get into DFU mode

    From there it should work, but I’ve only tried this once.
    Hope it works for you

    this has happened to my 3gs.
    i used redsn0w to update my iphone to a ipad baseband. and jailbreak it
    all was good and everything worked. i also unlocked it. so i was using tmobile on it and it froze so reset it. and the apple logo stayed there for a lonnnngggg time.
    so i tried the just bot tethered now and it came back on after another 15 min of rebooting. but now it says sim failure and its unlocked and jailbroken
    WTF!!!!

    I have the exact problem discribed but when i enter dfu mode redsn0w does not recognize it and therefore will not boot it tethered. Any advice on how to fix this?

    Hi there;
    This is true, I never used a tethered jailbreak before and I applied it to my ipad.
    But as you know the iPad wont boot after the tethered jailbreak applied!
    So I work around to see what is going on, I realize that the Appsync4.2 is causing the problem!
    How I knew that? After I applied the tethered jailbreak and install appsync4.2 I rebooted my device and I got a loop reboot Apple icon and never got to springboard. Then I applied with redsn0wb4 ” just boot tethered now” and removed appsync4.2 then the device revolted normally revolted But I couldn’ ruse safari and the jailbroken apps and cydia.
    There is a problem somewhere,
