I have read about some problems here after installing the new 3.2.2 update for iPad. Has anyone had a good result after the update? I don't want to mess up my iPad like I did after I installed iOS4 on my iPhone 3G! Should I update my iPad now?

MacBookPro 2.4 GHz, 4GB RAM, 256GB SolidStateDrive,, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Intel iMac +500GB ext.HD, 64GB iPad, 32GB iPodTouch, 16GB White iPhone 3G

    I and thousands of others have installed the 3.2.2 update without any problems. Note that the couple of problems reported here are not caused by the update itself.

    Remember that those who installed the update without problems are not going to be posting here.

    I had no problem at all. Everything went smooth, like most other users too. Those having problems are a small minority…

    enjoy your magic machine…

    I have not had any problems since updating yesterday, if anything you are protecting yourself from a exploit!

    Thank you. That is why I asked for positive feedback. I appreciate all of you who answered.

    I have never had problems with updates, either, until iOS 4 just about has ruined my iPhone 3G, so now I am more cautious about installing updates.

    Well, I am happy for all who enjoy a smooth upgrade, but I am in my second term of this botched update fiasco. The first screw-up was when I accepted the upgrade to 3.2.1, a few weeks ago. It bricked me and scared the bejesus out of me that I might lose all I had worked for (documents and graphic designs) on my NON-JAILBROKEN ipad. Fortunately, someone else got the right way to restore the iPad with items intact. This time, I accept the upgrade for 3.2.2 and have the same darn issue!!!!!1 WHY HATH THOU FORSAKEN ME, APPLE???

    Come on, guys. I preach the Gospel of most things Apple, and this is the thanks I get? Is it because I refuse to fatten the pot with AT&T? I feel like Job... Not Jobs... Just Job.

    After multiple tries and restarts on both ipad and imac, I managed to get error code.. 2009 & 2006. I connected the ipad to the direct USB port on the back of the iMac, and lickety split: Now, updated and almost done Syncing WITH the backup of my ipad that preceded the update download. Wuuuuuuh-HEEEWW!

    Crisis averted, Captain!

    Ok. I usually have no problems with software updates. But this is the second time in recent months that I have had troubles (or should I say my sons have) when updating iPods and iPads. The last one was on an iPod, and I only mention it here as the resolution was to take a brand new Macbook and do the restore with it first. Then I was able to restore the backup. Looks like I am headed down this same route with my other son's iPad. He tried the recent update to 3.2.2, and it gets about 95% of the way thru, and hangs forever. The progress bar during the firmware update locks at about 95% and even after 3 hours, makes no progress. iTunes never errors out either. I have reset the iPad once and let it try again. Still no luck. Good thing I work for a school district that buys lots of brand new Macs, so I always have another one to try the above mentioned fix with. What would I do if I were an average user?

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    I have the exact same problem with my iPad. Downloaded the 3.2.2 Firmware/OS Thursday evening and everything went OK uptill installing about 95% and it just hangs. No error messages or nothing. I can't recover/restore the iPad since it's still using the same 3.2.2 download... I even tried to go back to the 3.2.1 release but that's doing the same thing.
    As a Windows user one start to get used to long sessions using iTunes, some times up to 12 Hours for backup, but this?
    I'm totally lost now... my iPad 64GB WiFi is a peace of dead metall right now... Seriously need help on this...

    Just to let you know, I used another computer I had at home, created a new account on the computer did all software updates to get the latest iTunes and then did the restore using that account. The iPad restored (empty of course since the iTunes in that account had nothing) completely and was working with the new version. I then had my son do a restore from backup and that went perfect and the iPad is back to normal. Just a big hassel to go thru for an update that really only blocks Jail breaking the iPad. I guess the only good thing is, that a virus/malware cannot use that same bug to infect the iPad. Not sure there are any out there yet, but I would bet that will be an issue eventually.

    Okay, same problem as those on this post... tried to upgrade a non-jailbroken iPad through iTunes to 3.2.2, and hung. Now the iPad only displays the USB-to-iTunes graphic upon power-up, and iTunes only hangs when it tries to restore. What are my options? The earlier posted phrase "dead metal" just about describes it...
