Same thing happened here yesterday and today...
- Configurator 1.4.2 on Maverics
- All affected iPads already had 7.0.3 installed
- Yesterday it happened with Bretford cart and almost all iPads in the cart were affected (all iPads in the cart were 4th gen). First it failed to apply refresh, said something about being unable to restore 6.1.3 which we ignored, unfortunately, even though such error shouldn't have been possible. We tried again, this time all affected iPads got wiped clean and students lost all documents. This was unattended so we don't have as many step-by-step details recorded as we would like to.
- Today it happened with direct USB cable to a single iPad 2. We stopped it when we saw it was trying to download 6.1.3 so no damage to data on it.
At this point we have no idea what triggers this. I am simply stunned that a product like this can be released.
Here, AC 1.4.2 had started to revert to 6.1.3 but the magsafe fell off the MB Air as I left the office yesterday and most probably ran out of batery through the process. So, our 30 iPads were found in Restore mode this morning.
With still haphazard Internet connection (we're near the 60th parallel up here), i tried to reintall some iPads with iTunes because Apple Configurator did not want to image them in that state
Then iOS 7.0.4 came out through that.
How is it on your side?
