Hello all. I'd love to see if someone could help me out. In reading the threads, I know that it's impossible to have a bricked iPad...and I've got some fight in me, so I'm ready to do what I've gotta do before I decide to take it back to where I got it from.
So I open the box, pull out the iPad, activate it with iTunes, and then proceed to upgrade to iOS 5 because it wasn't originally on there. I'm at work currently so I'm doing this on a Win7 machine...but I'm heading home to my MacBook Pro. During the update it downloads, unpacks, installs, and attempts to verify and reload the firmware. It then stops about 75% of the way through and says that an error has been encountered and that it can't restore the firmware with an error code of (-1). When I unplug and plug it back in it says that it's detecting an iPad in recovery mode and that all it can do is recover and update...but it only does the same thing. Mind you again...it's not jailbroken, and I'm not trying to jailbreak at this point...but if that's what I have to do to fix it then that's fine. Any help would be wonderful!
