I'm having a problem with one of the steps:
"5) My phone was stuck in recovery mode which is the USB cable and iTunes logo on the screen. I thought my phone was bricked as it would not come out of this mode until I found the solution is to get your phone into DFU mode and run a restore. To do this, when in recovery mode;
Hold the Power button for about 5 seconds.
Now press down the Home Button without releasing the Power button. Keep both buttons pressed for about 10 more seconds.
Now release the Power button but not the Home button. Keep the Home button pressed for 15 more seconds or so. Your device should be in DFU Mode afterwards.
DFU Mode is just a blank screen but your phone should be recognised by iTunes."
I have my iPad with the iTunes logo screen. I have it connected to the PC. I do all the button thingy but nothing. Itunes doesn't recognize it. The device shows up in the Device Administrator. (Not really, it activates the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver) So the PC is detecting it somehow.
But it's not showing up. I can't restore it. I don't know what to do.

I updated 2 ipads, 2 iphone 4S's, 1 iphone 4, and 1 ipad mini without any problems. If you do it via itunes you usually have no problems. Also waiting out the initial rush is usually the best thing to do too.

Once again, it's itunes fault, i think. Or not iTunes fault, but bad uninstaller. I installed iTunes in my gf notebook, which never had an apple soft in it, the Tablet was detected in DFU mode, i restore it, now im restoring the back up.
So. Device saved.
BUT. The iPad is still not properly detected in my computer. Im going to try to remove evert apple component.

If you are referring to a Windows computer, make sure you uninstall and reinstall iTunes by following this support document http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923 exactly. Otherwise you can have issues. This should fix your problem.

Thanks. That solved it.
If someone else is having the same problem, try this:
1) Make sure you got the ipsw file to restore to 7.0 (In my case iPad3,1_7.0_11A465_Restore.ipsw), google it, you'll find it.
2) Follow the guide shared by Chris: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923.
3) Reinstall itunes.
4) Put your device in DFU mode, as OP said in part 5.
5) Open iTunes. Connect. Restore from the ipsw. And then restore from a backup.

With iOS7 you can enable automatic updates in the app store. When I opened the App Store this morning it started doing a massive update of all my apps.
To enable automatic updates go to settings, iTunes and App Store, scroll down to Automatic Updates and turn on Updates, make sure below Use Cellular Data is set to off so you're using Wi-Fi only for automatic updates.
You still have to manually install the apps in 'Purchased, Not on this Phone'
All the best
