Yes< I just did that yesterday.
I followed your instructions.The connect to itunes screen did not come up. Instead I have the itunes icon in the middle of the page and a long white line in the lower half center of the page. A lock is showing at the top of the line, with an arrow pointing up above the line.
That is the Connect to iTunes symbol. :)
Can you now see the Restore iPad option on iTunes?
no, I disconnected everything and shut itunes off and shut the ipad off.Too disgusted.
I am lost so I will give up for now
