    I was syncing my iPad 2 to iTunes while uploading some of my songs in garageband to iCloud. After iTunes syncing, my iPad crashed and went into a boot loop.
    A hard reset did the trick, but now the songs I was trying to upload are transparent. Green symbols with an arrow are displayed on the songs. (see attached pic)
    I cannot open the songs, cannot remove them from iCloud.

    Anyone knows how I can get them back?
    I really hope someone can help me out... Those songs mean a lot to me.

    Usually... When you replace a file, it will be deleted when it is copied correctly. So if copying to iCloud failed; the files must still be somewhere on my iPad.
    Right?

    New thing I have learned; apparently the arrow means that the file is waiting to get uploaded to iCloud.
    Also I have found some topics on Apple forums about this issue. It seems that no one has found a fix yet....
    Darn!!!

    Why don't you retry syncing again which may kick it out of what it's trying to do. If it does not help go to an apple store or call apple support.

    I am not sure what you mean by "retry syncing again". If you mean restore, did that just now. Unfortunately it didn't help...
    Calling Apple support won't help. Those guys here in the Netherlands know less about the Apple devices than I do...

    You said your syncing failed. I said retry it to try and fix the error. But if restore worked then that's good.

    Restoring didn't help. And syncing to iTunes was completed, just uploading the songs to iCloud failed.
    Last time I used iCloud..

    But you gave me an idea; restoring from an older backup should do the trick.

    If I may give advise; never use iCloud in Garageband! If your iPad crashes, your songs will be gone forever unfortunately...
    For the jailbreakers; you can find the .band files in the Application directory. Use iDisk to copy them to your PC. This way you will always have a backup for your songs.
    That is what I have learned from this stupid iCloud bug...
    Thanks Apple!

    Yeah, but this only works if you saved it to iTunes before, and I didn't, though now I think I should have... While I was syncing, all my apps disappeared from the iPad (I have an iPad 2 as well) and all the GB files were on the app, but I'm thinking (hoping) it's been saved somewhere on the hard drive of the iPad. Do you think there's a way I could get it back?
