I would be very grateful if someone can help me - I attempted to update to 4.2 yesterday and after it taking literally all day to back-up on itunes - I woke this morning to find that it finally says the Ipad should be on v4.2. However all I see is an Apple logo and a progress bar. Nothing i happening and I have attempted to reset using sleep and go home buttons, but this has merely reset the progress bar back to the beginning. Arrggghhhh. Can someone please help.
I also have the same issue with my iPad. I tried to restore it using erase all data and settings and then it got stuck with the apple logo. I tried doing the recovery mode but all I get from iTunes is a message that says I should restore and update the ios (which is weird 'cause I have 4.2.1/latest ios already). Now I'm trying to download the firmware first before doing the recovery mode again.
I do hope I get it right this time.
Please help me! Please...
hi guys try this work for me on a hard reinstall after apple logo hung..............
1: connect iPad USB wire to yr computer
2. Turn iPad off by holding power n home buttons.
3. Whilst holding home button, reconnect iPad to computer ( keep holding home button till u see image of iTunes n the USB cable on the iPad .
4. iTunes must be turned on.iTunes will automatically prompt u to restore.
its a bit fiddly but it worked
dazza74 you just made my night. it's a bit of a pain to do the plugin while holding home, but the steps went perfect. I'm waiting for itunes to restore and get me working again now.
I'm miffed, too, because I think I lost my backups when I followed Apple's lil "oh reinstall iTunes" troubleshooting, but oh well. I'll cope, I suppose.
Thanks so much for your post!
