If I need to restore to the factory settings, will I lose the apps I have purchased? I can reload music and pics, but don't want to pay again for the few apps I got.If I can back up, how do I do that?

How To Recover Purchased Apps After Restore Factory Settings?
I'm a low level IT guy here at my office. My boss bought an iPad and never synced it with iTunes for regular backups.

Apparently one of his kids locked the iPad out to where it required him to authenticate with iTunes. He gave it to me and after several attempts I just gave up and nuked the iPad back to factory settings in Recovery Mode.

What is the most efficient way to get the applications purchased from the iPad back onto the iPad? ITunes seems to be downloading and restoring the iTunes purchased content but not the iPad purchased content.

iPhone OS 3.1.2

ITunes Is Telling To Restore To Factory Settings?
I just updated iTunes today. I tried syncing my iPad2 (32GB) and I was told that iTunes does not recognize my iPad and that it needs to be restored to factory settings. I've tried plugging it in with the cable and syncing it wirelessly and it's not working. I've turned it on and off again and restarted it and tried different USB ports and nothings working. It does sync with my iPhone, but no luck with the iPad. I would hate to lose everything on my iPad. When I tried plugging in my iPad to my computer, the camera roll did show up on autoplay (windows vista) so it does recognize my iPad. .

iPad 2, Windows Vista

Application Did Not Recognize/pc Tried A Factory Restore
I jailbroke my ipad and all was working good, there was a app I had bought on my Itunes on my pc I wanted. When I hooked up the ipad to the pc it did not recognize it saw an ipad but said there were problems. So, I tried a factory restore and when it was done with that I had the same problem. I did this several times. I have a mac also so I tried to do a factory restore on that and it worked, it could sync and everything. I then hooked it back up to the pc and tried the factory restore on it because all my stuff is on the pc but I get the same problem. No matter what it will not recognize the ipad properly so I can not sync anything from the pc-no mater how many times I do the factory restore.

Won't Connect To Pc Itunes / Can't Do Factory Restore
I jailbroke my ipad and it was working great, there was a app I had bought already that was on Itunes and I wanted to put it back on the ipad. I tried to restore my ipad first back to factory, but after the restore itunes will see it but says it cannot properly access ipad. I have done a factory restore several times but no good. this was on a pc.

I hooked it up to my mac and it did the restore and will sync stuff but that is not the itunes i use. When I hook it back up to my PC and try a factory restore again I get the same problem. I cannot properly connect to pc itunes it will do nothing.

Restoring IPad 2 To Factory Settings?
i am having the new iPad delivered tomorrow and would like some advice on restoring my iPad 2 to factory settings as im passing it on to a relative.

I will back up the ipad2 to my iTunes so I can sync my new one in iTunes but would it be best if I connected the iPad2 to a PC which has iTunes on it and do the factory restore on there.

Reset It To Factory Settings Without Knowing Passcode?
We laid off an employee but don't have his passcode to reset the ipad to it's factory settings.Is there anyway I can do this? I tried following the directions I found:

If you dont know the passcode to go into the ipad and reset it, you simply need to connect the iPad to iTunes.

Connect your iPad to the USB port on your computer, open iTunes and on the left side of the panel will appear a category for Devices... select the iPad. The summary window will have the information on the iPad and below that the choice for Restore. Select Restore, and you will have to do some confirming usually, and the system will go to work restoring the iPad to the factory settings.

Reset It Back To The Factory Settings To Sync It With My Itunes
I'm buying a used one and just wanted to make sure that I will need to reset it back to the factory settings to sync it with my itunes like an ipod. Which means that I won't be able to use any apps that are on it from the past user, correct? He also said that I could use the rest of the month of 3G that he had. Can I do that without his password and will I be able to prepay using that sim card on my own account in the future?

Restored Factory Settings - ITunes Will Not Read IPad 2 Now
I bought Ipad 2 (16 GB), downloaded latest version of itunes and connected the ipad to my laptop a week ago. It worked fine, itunes detected it, I registered at app store (but didn't register the ipad yet). Today, I restored factory settings on Ipad 2 and tried to connect it to a different laptop (don't have access to the first laptop anymore). I again downloaded the new version of itunes and then connected it. Nothing is happening.

The ipad turns on for a second so I can see the image of white usb chord and itunes symbol. but itunes on my laptop doesn't read it. Since I restored factory settings, the Ipad now gives only that screen of white usb chord to be plugged in the itunes symbol whether it is connected to the laptop or not. I even gave the current laptop authorization from itunes ("authorize this computer"). I'm using Windows 7

Not Lose Apps When Syncing To Another Account
I work at a special needs school and we have a communication app that parents want on their ipad. Is there a way to get that app on their ipads without losing their apps? We have transfered their purchases, but then we get so many apps on our computer. We would just like to add the communication app. If you turn the delete option off in the restrictions does that keep apps from being deleted during syncing? Once we download the app is there a way for them not to lose it when they sync on their computer?

Restored Backup Would It Also Restore All Settings
My iPad has been having random crashes. I have shut it down and turned it back on and it still crashes occasionally. Just now it even crashed in Settings.I was wondering if I restored it to factory and reloaded it with a backup would that help.Mosre importantly though is this question, if I restored a backup would it also restore ALL settings, game saves, documents written in pages and a journal program, etc?A Best Buy guy told me about pressing and holding the power button and home button for several seconds.
