Thread: Can't restore iPad 2
05-31-2014, 07:02 PM #1Can't restore iPad 2
I have an iPad 2 that worked perfectly until one day it entered recovery mode. Nothing happened before, just reading a book and it hung.
From there I can't recover the iPad. It shows the recovery iTunes logo, reboots and sits there with the Apple logo. Forever. I tried using Windows and Linux, iTunes and idevicerestore, 3 different cables, 3 computers, even a Mac. Nothing.
Basically I think the iPad must enter "restore mode" after first reboot when recovering, where the Apple logo shows a progress bar below. There's the problem, it is NOT entering restore mode (different from recovery mode).
