I was told that the "RESTORE" would just wipe it clean but still leave the os4.2 installed.
Since I did not have any problems with the ipad before the update...i dont see why "restoring" it to a blank 4.2 os will help.
I've also read that some others with the same problems have done a "restore" and it did not fix the issue.
Keeping my fingers crossed that apple releases an update soon.
The reason a restore (complete start from scratch wipe) might help is because there is the possibility that during the install, one little 0 or 1 got corrupted or misplaced which leads that entire string to not work. So restoring the iPad gives it a chance to install correctly this time. No, it won't fix the problem for everyone, but it has fixed the problem for some. It's worth a shot.
Agreed, its worth a shot. I'm just nervous about a restore... being able to use the ipad sometimes is better than not being able to use it at all if something with the restore goes horribly wrong.
My feeling is that there is enough of us with this problem....eventually apple should release a fix. From what I've seen here and other forums - there's no "fix" we can perform on our end.
