iOS 6.1.2 any issues with updating for iPad 2.? I don't want the same issues as I had with updating to to iOS 6.1.1
None that I have found.
What was your problem with iOS 6.1.1?

I got completely locked out of my iPad. It was put in to recovery mode, then I got an error message when it tried to continue with the install. I got an answer as to how to fix it via the forums (manual download basically), but then had to restore everything. I lost everything on my iPad. So I am a bit skeptical about updating to 6.1.2 until I see some other comments. Lots of people had the same problem with their iPad 2 with the 6.1.1 upgrade.

So you had no problem whatsoever with the new update for iPad 2? I'm scared to update because I don't want my documents to be deleted. I use my iPad daily for school and it has everything on it.

I just experience the exact same thing with iOS 6.1.2 !!
Settings was offering me to install the new update (after it was downloaded without asking in my iPad). I finally accepted, then I got an error, then a little square with glitchy pixels in the center of the screen with the waiting "rosette" in the middle, turning indefinitely. I restarted the iPad and then just the image of the USB cable to iTunes image would show up. I finally plugged the iPad to my Mac and iTunes would act as it was another generic iPad (not its name) and gave me only one solution : restoration. Since I didn't made a sync for about two weeks, the backup was in a good part obsolete.
I lost a lot of precious data, photos, text, music (I'm a composer), and all my lasts productions notes. That is the worst update EVER! I never experienced something like that.
When I think that I always update with oTunes and now for the first time, I gave a try to the proposed "in-tablet" method, I rage ! How can Apple left this option as a default? Why iOS proposed me to make the update through the iPad? It's a shame.

Thanks, I'm going to some more research now and not install 6.1.2. Niclet what you said happened to you with 6.1.2 was exactly what happened to me with 6.1.1. I found a fix via the forums but couldn't tell you how I did it now. But it was a manual install from my computer. I lost everything. Thanks for your reply, think I will let this upgrade go and not bother.
