I have just updated my iPad today. Because in New Zealand we have such pitiful internet speeds and connections I had a number of issues with trying to update to the new IOS on my iPad ( from 4. something). It kept giving me a time out message.( by the way I have a PC running windows 7). So I downloaded the update and installed it manually. All looked fine, but when I started the iPad I had to go through the set up and at the end it gave me a message saying "Set up incomplete" with 2 options with the buttons Start Over and Continue, which do not take me any further.
My Safari browser is giving me an error message that states I'm trapped in an infinite loop. An "OK" button appears to abort the loop, but the button seems frozen and just doesn't work. I tried simply turning the IPad on and off, but I'm still trapped in the loop. How do I reset the application?
And by the way - the loop got started when I visited a site to redeem frequent flier miles. Go figure!
I haven't been able to update my iPad because of error 3194. I've tried everything to find a fix, including using multiple computers, and nothing is working. Now my iPad is stuck in a recovery loop, and i cant restore it because of this error. I've tried using Tiny Umbrella and Redsn0w to kick it out of recovery mode and neither of them work. I've also tried restoring to the current firmware, 5.1.1, and 6.0.1, and again, neither worked.
IPad 3 :: Stuck In A Loop Charging / Turning On / Restore And Then Running Out Of Battery
Aug 21, 2014
The other day I decided to give my Ipad it's long awaited system update, alls good, it starts installing I go to bed, however during the night it must have run out of charge as it died. Now I am stuck in a loop of it charging, turning on, asking to be restored and then running out of battery again (or so it says).
I reckon the problem is the brightness is at max and the restore screen does not seem to turn off, so it sits there draining what little battery my ipad has accumulated in a never ending loop. My charger isn't apple branded but it runs at 5.1 volts (I believe that's just over 2 amps?) I think that is enough although I could be wrong? I was hoping you good people would be able to tell me. If it is meant to be enough, is there any way I can turn the ipad off during this loop at any point while still charging it?

Restore New Setup Kill My AT&T Unlimited Data Plan?
Jun 15, 2010
I'm going to be giving a presentation on the iPad's features to a business group I work with. Before giving the presentation, I'd like to fully restore my 64g+3G iPad and create a temporary "stock" profile - that way, I won't be presenting all my personal junk to the group. I have one main concern, though: I'm really anxious about possibly losing my $30-per-month unlimited data plan with AT&T - I got "grandfathered in" on the deal, and I know if I interrupt my service for even a moment, I'll have to downgrade to the 2gig-per-month plan.So, does anyone know if a restore / reset of the iPad would affect my AT&T plan, or would I just sign back in with my account details and pick up right where I left off?

I am trying to setup my new iPad using the "restore from iCloud backup " function. My old iPad is updated to the latest available iOS yet the new iPad is not allowing me to choose the latest backup (just done this morning) as is says iOS 8.1.1 is required.

IPad 2 :: Message - Itunes Could Not Restore Because The Backup Session Failed
Oct 13, 2011
ios 5 seemed to install on iPad 2 fine, but now when I go to restore from the backup I did before the upgrade, I get this message: "itunes could not restore the ipad because the backup session failed".
I keep getting "Incomplete Backup" to iCloud on both my iPad and iPhone.
I've gone through all the recommended procedures, shut down auto backup on both, and restarted it on both, deleted the backups on my my iCloud account using iCloud on my PC, made sure the WiFi (8Mbit) was working and the iPhone and iPad were locked and plugged into the chargers.
When I tried to download apps using 3G connection, iPad2 prompted that app is more than 20mb and asked to use wifi. I am traveling and will not have access to wifi for a while. For now these apps stay at message 'loading' and are not letting me delete the apps. The delete icon does not appear for these apps. The prompt for switching to wifi keeps coming frequently and is annoying.
Plugged in my iPad to my Macbook yesterday to charge it up and got a message saying there was a software update. I accepted and the software install hangs when about 95% complete. Tried it about 6 times now always the same result.
The restore function doesn't work as the only option you can select is restore and update software and it seems to be the latest software that is hanging.
I'm thankful to those who've pointed out that the shuffle function is available in the iPod app on the iPad. But not a whole lot of folks are pointing out that it is a very limited function that really cripples the music capabilities of this otherwise fantastic device.
You really only have the option of shuffling 1) your entire music collection, or 2) an individual album. We need the ability to also shuffle genres and artists! The last thing I want is to be enjoying some Ella Fitzgerald and then have it switch to Slayer. I want to be able to shuffle one genre at a time...whatever I'm in the mood for. Or I'd like to listen to my entire collection of one artist, but not in album order.
I don't think this is too much to ask. I really hope they make this change in a future version of the iPod app.
This has to be some kind of sick joke. Since April I've downloaded all sorts of apps on my ipad. By my count based on my itunes receipts, I've downloaded 253. When I look on the Itunes library it shows 96 apps on there. What happened to the other 158?Mostly it wasn't a big deal because they were either on my ipad or deleted. Recently though I've gone past the max limit and have to use the spotlight to find apps as if I can remember the names of 200 apps many of which I haven't had time to try yet. Plus if a good one is off the screens I can't move it.So to make a long story short I sync my ipad up so I could organize them and bam half my apps just disappear along with all their data. What the F? I did the transfer purchases to no avail. Now I don't have any way of seeing a complete list of the apps I've downloaded. So now do I really have to look through my receipts to find them all and do an individual search and download on 100+ apps?
Itunes is a joke. Why is it so **** hard for the apps library to show me a complete list of my apps? Is that really too much to ask for?I love my ipad but I gotta say apple does some really asinine stuff. Information:
