Hi Jona and thank you for replying back to this session once again.
I am glad you took some time last night before getting back to me, just to see if the iPad, after the 3rd reset attempt worked. Now as I understand from you, it is still looping.
That is all I need to know. This is not a normal issue and appears to be combination iOS Software and hardware issue with your iPad. It does not take alot of steps to correct an iPad software issue or functionality problem. This needs hands on tech support for sure.
I would recommend you take this in to your local Apple Retail Store to have them check your iPad by performing a diagnostics to see what could be causing this continuous loop, with no effort tried has worked to stop it.
Just for your reference, I have taken the liberty to provide the store locator link to your local Apple Retail store so you can make an online reservation with the Genius Bar in your area, based on zip code.Apple Retail Store
If you have more questions Jona, please don't hesitate to reply back to this post, as I am a always glad to assist as much as I am able.
Thank you again for following up and updating me on this issue.
