    Bizzare Ipad problem! Please help me..

    Hi there,

    I am at my wits end so I hope somebody in this forum can offer me some help. My Ipad is on iOS 4.2.1. For some bizzare reason, the Ipad would AUTOMATICALLY connect to the wifi by itself and launches the youtube application in sleep mode.

    This is what I normally do after toying around with the ipad.

    1.) Close all applications
    2.) Turn off wifi
    3.) Put the ipad to sleep

    After about 6 - 7 hours when I turn on the Ipad again (after "Slide to Unlock"), the youtube applications will be open in the background. Double tapping the home button will reveal the Settings and Youtube application to be running. Wifi will be turned on inexplicably as well. Battery life would deplete by 10% within the 6 - 7 hours. Volume would set itself to 0. What is going on?!!

    I have disabled all notifications. Disabled Ping. Disabled Push. All to no avail.

    I am going crazy trying to figure out what the problem is. I thought it was my router that is causing the problem so I borrowed a different router from a friend but I am still experience the same problems. I don't mind that it auto connects to youtube and turning on wifi, but the battery drain is too much. I seriously doubt that there is a hardware malfunction because this is the 2nd ipad that is experiencing the same symptoms. My first ipad have experience the same bizzare symptoms and I sold it at a very low price because I thought it was faulty. After getting the 2nd ipad the same problem persists.

    Any help would be much much appreciated! I am seriously considering ditching Apple and jumping on the android bandwagon!

    No offense, but this really seems like troll post. Especially with this statement -
    I am seriously considering ditching Apple and jumping on the android bandwagon!
    This your SECOND iPad that is doing the exact same thing?

    If this is really a serious post, is your iPad JB?
    If so, is SSH running?
    What apps have you installed recently?
    Did you even bother to ask Apple for help with it?

    The iPad may well be the most perfect electronic gadget currently on the market. (Yes, that includes the Droid Tablets)
    And yes, if you take it from my hands I will stop breathing.

    How come you didn't return it to Apple for a new one?

    rsava: I ain't no troll. The Android statement is pure unbridled frustration with the Ipad. And yes, this is the 2nd ipad doing the same thing.
    1.)Yes the Ipad is JBed. My previous Ipad was restored to 5.0.1 unjailbreaked. Same problem.
    2.)No SSH running. I don't know what it is.
    3.)I mostly installed games and goodreader. That's about it.
    4.)I would love to speak to Apple but there is no official Apple spokesperson in Malaysia. Only a local distributor. The nearest Apple Store is in Singapore, and thats about nearly 100 miles away.

    I hope by answering these question will convince you that I am not a troll.

    Wow, that is bizarre! How about taking a video and posting it on YouTube so we can see exactly what it's doing? Without actually seeing it, it's going to be very difficult for folks to believe such an unheard of phenomenon...and I for one would really like to see this. TIA!

    BTW, here's all of the Apple contact info...

    Here is the deal, there is no way the iPad would do this by itself. Something has been installed though cydia, or a conflict between two apps, is causing the problem.
    Especially when both iPads have done it.

    If you stay with installing good, well known tweaks and apps, you can't go wrong. iPF has a great section and many threads about good, compatible tweaks and apps.

    Many people start adding repos that have illegal content and that is where the problem lies. No one knows what comes with anything in those illegal repos.

    Not only this, but with time the firmware can become corrupted or bloated with temp files and caches. The temp files/caches is more of a memory problem than a performance problem.

    My firmware became corrupted with my last jailbreak. I had app crashes and a few other things go wrong. A good DFU restore and a fresh firmware install fixed this issue with no problems. !

    The thing I hate is, SHSH blobs really don't mean anything anymore. So if your firmware does become corrupted and your current firmware isn't being signed anymore you have to choose between performance and a jailbreak in most cases. !

    My iPad was having a lot of crashes and lag problems, but I uninstalled tweaks and apps that I don't need or don't know what they are and iPad is running great now. Things like barrel, great tweak but all my apps and folders are on one page now so no need for it.

    The iPad handles caches and temp files really well so I don't see how that could be a problem. But I have never gone more than a month or two without upgrading or restoring so I really haven't had the chance to give it a try.
