    Attempt to update iPad3 to iOS 6, iTunes only gives me errors, [solved]

    Hello friends. I finally decide to update my iPad to the iOS 6 or is it something like 6.11, anyways, I wanted to update my ipad3. I connected my USB cable to my computer, opened itunes, backed up my things, synced everything, when and clicked on update. After it spends 15 minutes downloading, it tells me about an error “something..something…1611”. I click on the link, try to read through what to do about it.
    I updated my itunes to the newest version just today. My W7 is updated.
    Now all I have is this on my screen,

    I tried disconnecting my ipad, and reconnecting it. I then get this message, . I tried getting my ipad out of recovery mode, there are many videos on youtube about how to do it, but it did nothing, after the sliced apple logo pops up, it just goes back to that image of the usb cable pointing at the itunes logo.

    So now I have no use of my ipad, and being in the hospital right now, I was using it a lot, I am really tired of how difficult Apple makes the simplest things. I don’t know what else I’m supposed to do.

    Just out of interest, is this iPad jailbroken (hacked)? And is the update button on iTunes greyed out?

    Sorry that you are in the hospital. Get well soon!

    Jailbroken? hmm... I do not know. I bought through craigslist, what does jailbroken do? it has worked flawlessly up to now. The update button was not grayed out, because I pressed it to update my ipad

    Sorry for your troubles. Try using the steps outlined in this tutorial: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    It is a bit of a process, yes, but if the steps are followed as written, you should end up with an iPad3 running iOS 6.0.1.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    Thank you Mickey, this guide would be wonderful if Apple didnt hate their customers.
    I tried getting my ipad into DFU mode 24 times, no effect, it keeps going back to the same screen that I showed in the original post.

    Have you tried restoring the iPad on iTunes?

    Something odd is up with your iPad. Apple does not make the ipad hard to use, in fact it is quite the opposite. If you did in fact buy a jailbroken iPad, you can't blame apple for that.
