Note : Put it to DFU Mode while connected to computer and also in DFU Mode your iPad will remain blank (shows black screen). Timing is critical when you put it to DFU Mode, so keep trying until it goes to DFU Mode.
If you have any trouble following the steps, please let me know and I will walk you through it.
I went through all of the steps.
The last step says to click on OK or restore. I clicked on OK and nothing happened, except the dialog box disappearing.
We tried it three times.
the ipad is unchanged
on itunes, I do not know where the lcd screen is, but I see no downloading firmware. if my mouse is in the box with the apple at the top, is see 3 .---, stacked.
does that help?
I tunes finished, but the Ipad is still black. My son is plugging it in to see if it needs power.
I got an error message " this I pad could not be restored, an unknown error occurred (3194)
I couldn't get I tunes to loan properly on my son's computer. He's got a gaming computer he bought with his own money and I don't want to fool around with it.
I tried again on my computer ( a cheap "retread" ), with a different usb cord and disconnected my printer. I did turn off my firewall and restarted the computer.
still no luck.
my life is on that IPad!!!
yes, it loaded, but it told me to do it again.
Even though I turned off his firewall, it came up with 5 or 6 files that it wouldn't download.
The error messages are gone and I tunes isn't even showing on his computer. I'm trying again. its about half done.
I succeeded in downloading itunes on his computer. when I plug in the ipad it recognizes that the ipad needs to be restored, but it doesn't show the window that asks you if you want to restore the ipad.
Is there a way I can get my calendar and contacts? I have work I need to get done today and appointments I need info on.
I need access to the information!
it didn't work. i can't afford to have the ipad repaired. it isn't even 2 years old!
back to paper and pen I guess.
