Apple Logo Loop after Evasion7 Jailbreak

I am following the this jailbreak thread (http://forum.precisesecurity.com/computer-security/where-to-get-real-ios-7-jailbreak-not-scam) ever since. It tackles bogus jailbreak release by various web sites and as well as official providers. Now that Evasion 7 jailbreak for iOS7 is out, I immediately tried it on my iPad2. Everything seems to be fine and no hassle running the program on my Windows 7 machine. Even the jailbreak process went smoothly until I reached the final stage.

Eventually, even if there is no hindrance in the jailbreak procedure, it turns out that it was Evasion 7 is not successful in jailbreaking an iPad2. This is evident on various discussions where iPad2 users are having Apple logo loop problems after jailbreaking with Evasion7.

On normal full functioning devices, restoring iPad is just combination of button presses. But in my case, power button is stuck up so there is no way to reset or put the device in a recovery mode. This is so far my main problem. How can I reset my iPad and restore it to factory settings? Is there a way to resolve Apple logo loop problem after Evasion7 jailbreak? Please help.

    You can still restore iPad to its factory default by following this procedure even though your power button is not working.

    1. Assuming that you cannot turn off the iPad and it is currently on Apple logo loop. Connect the USB cable to the computer first.

    2. As soon as the Apple logo appears press iPad’s Home button and connect the other end of USB cable to your iPad. This may not come instantly; it took me a several attempts before I manage iTunes to recognize my iPad. Release the Home button when you see “Connect to iTunes” on iPad’s screen.

    3. Next, open iTunes on the PC. You should see “iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be used with iTunes.”

    4. You can Press ‘Restor’’ to reset the iPad to factory settings. If you have previously downloaded a copy of the software updates using iTunes, please press Shift on keyboard before clicking on ‘Restore’ button. If it prompts for the location of the .ipsw file, navigate to the following location:
    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates\

    If your software is not yet updated, then you have to download the complete .ipsw file when iTunes display a prompt.

    5. Click ‘Restore’ again to confirm that you want to restore your device to factory settings and delete all data and content. iTunes will download the iOS software file and restore your iOS device.
