Ipad 4.3.3 failed on my iPad 2... I have lost everything. IN AN ENDLESS LOOPS OF trying to restore... BE WARNED this update is flakey!


Before anyone else wants to write to tell me that there is nothing wrong with it, please feel free to come over and fix my iPad and replace all the lost files, docs and everything else....


Quite frankly it feels like an iScam!

Try to restart you iPad by holding the home button and the lock button at the same times

    Yes I do, thank you for asking... How do I stay cool calm and collected when I am look at an endless loop of restore / restart / download. I have tried smiling, singing, breathing, and I came close to swearing, but thankfully held that back. I don't do yoga, but I do pray. Thank you you answer greatly appreciated.

    When you are an Apple Developer you are pretty used to it....it happens a lot w/ betas of OS

    You say you lost everything, your backups as well?

    Which version of iOS is running on your iPad now?


    Instead of flaming Apple, you may want to tell us exactly what you did and what went wrong.

  • ozcarwylde2 Level 1 Level 1

    Flaming... wow, I guess... sheesh... I love hot apple pie : So at the moment... Which IOS..... ummm IOS 0.0.0 Yes I have nothing on my Ipad ... Itunes no longer wants to talk to it... so I am sure that I have some retores in iTunes in there somewhere but iTelepathy was not something I ever downloaded..


    Ok... What did I do...


    I switch computer on

    I plugged iPrat in and iPhone 4.0

    iTunes tells me there is an update 4.3.3

    I tell it go right ahead and update my iPad first...

    it downloaded

    it said it was installing

    it STOPPED
    it sat there with a black screen and a long progress bar

    and nothing

    and nothing

    and nothing

    and nothing

    and nothing


    apparantly in fit of rage iFlamed Apple... go david... drops Goliath

    I rebooted everything including my budgie

    so.... I still got


    still get the black screen with the long progess bar



    so as it stands


    I do not have any clue what IOS i have

    yeah I am little grumpy

    any suggestions greatly appreciated Apfelwurm?


    Ps. I'll send Apple an apology tomorrow

    I have the SAME issue!!! I backed up my ipad2, updated to current version 4.3.3, I believe the ipad rebooted on its own, then it said connect to itunes like it was a brand new ipad. Itunes sees nothing. Did the whole reboot thing and there is nothing happening besides connect to itunes. Please don't tell me I am screwed. Is the backup hiding somewhere in one of my files in itunes folder i hope?? PLEASE HELP!!!
