Ipad in Recovery Mode
hello im complete noob about ipad and this is non-jb ipad1.
connected to my win7 laptop and it asked for update so i started update 10 minutes later thought its done and unplugged the cable..
guess it wasnt finished..
so i cant open ipad now
dont want to restore it and lose everything because tomorrow need to use this ipad as a director monitor on set..
please tell me how to get back everything
i checked itunes preferences and i guess my backup still in there
all i see is itunes logo and cable on screen
tried tinyumbrella and failed..
OK, so you are not jailbroken and don't need to be, but you have an iTunes backup?
In that case, and not knowing what state it might be in at the moment, you just need to restore again but you must let it finish this time!
Your best move is to put the device into DFU mode. Follow this guide - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacki...e-dummies.html
Then start iTunes and press "restore". This should install 4.3.5 firmware onto the device. When the process is finished the device will reboot and connect automatically to iTunes. At this point it will ask you if you want to set up as new or "restore from backup". You MUST choose "restore from backup" if you want all your settings and data back. The process will then go through 2 stages. First there will be a quick restore which will only take a few minutes. DO NOT DISCONNECT at this point. Let the reboot complete and iTunes will once again take over and sync all your apps and media back onto the device.
After that you should be back to the same point at which you made your last backup.
Hope that helps.
I stopped a sync once and couldn't sync again until I did a reboot- hold the home button and the sleep button until the apple appears. Don't panic, it may take a short while to restart.
couldnt restore 3194 error..
That's because you messed about with TinyUmbrella and it changed your hosts file...

Anyhoo, not much you can do now except reconfigure from scratch. And remember... sync regularly so you have a recent backup! :D
YES THERE WERE BACKUP..and i restored from backup...whatever
thanks for the help :)
OK, you know iTunes stores multiple backups though? You can select one from BEFORE you updated your IOS. You may want to connect your iPad to iTunes, right click the iPad in the left hand column, choose "restore from backup" and choose one from before you originally updated. Check the times and dates. That way you may get your settings back if iTunes stored the backups...
