RESET = No results.
RESTORE = not possible as the device shuts down while connected and cannot stay switched on long enough for any data/software to be either downloaded or uploaded.
I BOOKED AN APPOINTMENT WITH A GENIUS AT APPLE STORE = Gonna waste my whole Sunday there, I hope they will at least fix the problem.
Will keep you all posted...
I have the exact same problem as the original poster. I have an iPad 2, I updated to iOS 7 successfully and then the device just goes through the following loop: work fine for awhile and then suddenly randomly reboot. It has rendered my iPad 2 completely unusable.
I attempted the reset without any improvement. I managed to restore it as well (even without going to recovery mode) but still the device insists on rebooting.
Ok so my problem seems to have been resolved. I went to the local Apple Store and the genius performed another restore on it - even though I told him I already tried it (besides the point). I stuck around for a bit to see if it was gonna start rebooting again. I had all my apps and icloud backup restore on the spot. Lo and behold it rebooted once BUT after that it never did it again once all the apps were downloaded. I think this might have something to do with restoring backups and apps. Maybe you can try giving your devices some time to restore all settings and apps if you are using icloud.
Your mileage may vary of course. For me, it's been a day and so far so good. Good luck.
I have an ipad2 which untill updation to ios7 was working fine. After updation it worked fine for a couple of days with intermittent applications crashing. Then suddenly it went into boot loop.
The device would show the battery on the screen and then would appear the apple logo and again the screen with the battery. This would only happen if i connect the ipad2 to either a computer or to the charger. My device is fully charged.
I called apple care and they said that the hardware has failed and asked me to go to the apple store and ask for a replacement. I will have to pay a good amount for it. as the warranty is over.
Has anyone experienced the same?
Yes, After several hours the unit reboots again and I stuck while recovering this.
So I decided to contact the Genius Bar .
The answer was quick: the device has a hardware defect , so the iOS 7 cannot be installed. ????
But why it work all the time without any problems?
The only solution was to replace the device with paying for it.
