iPad 2 rebooting-loop, can't get out of Recovery Mode?
 
I have had nothing but problems since I updated the 6 Firmware.

Todays problem is that, whilst downloading Podcasts, I thought my iPad just decided to restart but it has been doing the same thing for hours. I tried putting it into Recovery Mode by holding in the home key, connecting through the USB and accessing it through iTunes. This worked, however when I tried to restore it a number of times I got an error (9). I have googled it and one of the things that keeps occurring is to restore it which I can't do.

I have also tried Redsn0ws recovery feature, which doesn't work for iPads apparently.

My iPad is not insured, I think it's under the warranty but I can't be sure. Has anybody came across this problem before and can help?

Thanks in Advance.

is there a button combo to hard reset? if you dont care about losing some shit, you might need to hard/factory reset

I have had recent problem so wiped everything recently anyway. All that was on there was a few books and a couple of pictures.

Anyone have any idea how to hard reset?

sounds to me like you have no choice but to hard reset. Use the "hardware reset" option on that page.

could try a DFU restore, failing that or you cant be fucked anymore (and youve had it less than a year) take it to apple and they will fix/replace it)

I took it to Apple yesterday, good news and bad news.

Good news: They tried to restore it, got an error 9 and said yes, it was their software that caused it and I would get a free one.

Bad news: the screen has a small crack in it so they can't give me a new one unless I pay 200!!!!

I am furious.

Nope, just a warranty. They're charging for the screen to be fixed, if I get it fixed anywhere else it will void. The iPad worked flawlessly beforehand, well before the update.

Basically it's akin to me going into the apple store, putting a virus on one of the computers and then charging them for me to fix it. It's crazy.

Apple forced me to update to 6 so I can use my iPad properly, so I did and it broke. I asked them to fix it, they said the only way they will fix it is if I allow them to fix the screen as well for 200. It's crazy. Have you ever heard anything like that before from any other company?

apple is so fucked with their warranties...sorry for your luck man. Not sure why they cant just fix the software without replacing the entire device. It's fucking insane.

Thanks, man, and No question. After giving them 500+ for it as well when I originally bought it, I just feel a bit hard done by.

I would assume they refurbish and sell each iPad on that they fix like this, (and the Free one they would give you would possibly be a refurb as well,) so I can understand why they wont give me a free one in replacement for my, albeit slightly, damaged version. I do completely understand. The only thing is I never wanted a free one in the first place, I just wanted them to help me fix the one I have paid my hard earned money for that their software made malfunction.

I would say that it's as if I'm losing out for the fact that I cracked the screen on MY OWN iPad, haha, but the sad truth is that's exactly what's happening.

If I could find a way to get out of the Apple logo/reboot loop without Apple it would be much sweeter than just getting the tablet to work now. It would be a victory against injustice! Haha. I'm just hitting brick walls with everything I attempt to fix it.
