    Good all,
    I am sure this topic as been discussed many times, but I have a problem, my daughter was playing with my Ipad, and entered the passcode to many times and is now disabled, and it is saying I should conect to I tunes. Well one of the problem I have is that the last computer it was syncd with is 7000 miles away. I did not know till I got back to work that it was locked. Is there any way of doing a complete reset, or recover it somehow using Itunes. I know the passcode but when ever I do the hold the home button and power button to get to reset it keeps asking me to enter my passcode, but does not give the passcode box. So I am at whits end as to figure this out, so I sure would welcome some help on how to fix this.

    Regards Adrian.

    Unfortunately, your iPad is locked until you can get to an iTunes and restore it. This means that you will have to put a new version of firmware on it, wiping out everything that was on it before. It will be just like it came out of the box.

    The good news is that you can restore from your latest backup once you get back to the iTunes with which you normally sync that iPad. Until then, you'll have a "new" iPad. Sorry.

    So, hopefully you've got access to the most recent iTunes...?

    Hiya, just wondering if it worked for you by downloading the latest itunes and then wiping the ipad? I've had a similar situation...my stupid housemate locked me out of my ipad and then I had to reset my computer for another reason so my itunes isn't recognising the ipad. It just keeps saying that I need to put the passcode in but obviously I can't. I have no idea what to do!!
