    I'm trying to trasfer my apps etc from my JB iPad2 to a new iTunes library because my old library got deleted from the hard drive. When I hit transfer, I get to step 4 (waiting for changes to be applies) but it gets stuck. The wheel keeps spinning but that's it, nothing else.
    anyone help?

    I have the exact same problem. My iPad2 is not jailbroken (something I had to forego when I updated to iOS 5.1 from iOS 4.3.1) and when I tried syncing it to a new laptop (Windows 7) via iTunes (latest version), and clicked on Transfer Purchases, iTunes would "freeze" at step 4 and no matter how long I wait, nothing happens.

    I've searched for answers on the internet, and so far, nothing seems to work. It is so frustrating. I hope others can help us out. Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, so do I. It's very frustrating. Have you tried any communication with apple?

    Not yet, but I'm definitely thinking about it. Sort of as a last resort. I've been searching for a solution and I keep coming up with searches of similar problems that I am shocked Apple is not addressing it when I searched their Support.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest iTunes, rebooted the computer running Windows 7, turned off my Windows Firewall, uninstalled AVG, deauthorized and authorized my laptop, checked "do not auto-sync", done all the things I've read here and other sites as well, you name it. Zilch. I am totally at a loss.

    I'll give searching another go tomorrow, as it is quite late here. If you happen to come up with a solution, do share it please. *hugs*

    I sure will, please do the same! *hugs*

    > Teddybear: But it seems like a call to Apple is the only option. No one here has answered the question and one would think that someone here has to know what to do. If I could be so presumptuous to suggest that since your iPad isn't jailbroken, perhaps you would be the more logical one to call. Just a thought.

    Muelgrub:

    First off, I'm sorry, but I can't help you. (1) Because I've never had to transfer to a new iTunes and (2) because I've never had a problem in transferring apps from my jail broken device. However, I have moved this post of yours to the Hacking section, so hopefully someone with jail breaking experience might have seen this issue.

    Secondly, please don't create another post on the same topic. It creates a fractured conversation and makes it difficult to follow. And, it's against our rules. Next time, if you feel a post needs to be in a different section, please contact a moderator who can move your original post for you. I have deleted your other post and ask you keep all follow ups and updates on this issue to this thread. Thanks for your understanding.

    Again, hopefully, with this post now here in the Hacking section, someone will be able to help. Good luck.

    Thanks M! So far no help, however. Surprising.

    @muelgrub, all of this really points to issues with your PC. I can't see that it's anything to do with the device, jailbroken or not. They simply don't do this normally.

    You say you have a new iTunes library, but I suspect you don't have a good clean iTunes install, especially if you had a broken library before. I would suggest that is what you really need to make progress.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you, but I tried to take care of that issue by deleting both my iTunes software, and old libraries and even created a new library on a different drive. The problem persists, however, and I'm still stuck in the loop at step 4.
    Don't know what to do!
