Full Decent Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

I am a registered developer and installed each iOS7 beta on my iPad 4th gen without wifi.


Well last time I installed it and I let it sit there for a few days. Now when I plug in to iTunes it says "The software on the iPad FDPAD has expired and must be updated to a newer version". Then I click on "Restore iPad" to upgrade, but... "Find My iPad must be turned off before “FDPAD” can be restored."


So now I can't use my iPad and I can't upgrade it. It is bricked.


Using the iPad has a blocking screen "ACTIVATE IPAD" and clicking next produces "Your iPad could not be activated because the activation service is temporarily unavailable...". I know the server is available because if I type the wrong password it will produce a different message.


Got this message for a few days.


Any ideas?
