    Hello everyone,

    I tried to do a full factory restore of my iPad 2 to get iOS 7 on it. It won't work, no matter what. It either keeps freezing or throwing this 4005 error.

    Help, please?

    Have you tried to do the update to ios 7 over the air (OTA) instead? I didn't have to do a full factory restore as you did. I just made sure I had full charge on my iPad and plugged it to the main before beginning the update, OTA.

    Error 4005 from my search implies " connect to iTunes."

    You don't need to connect to iTunes in order to update, there is another option which is the update using wifi as mentioned above.

    OK, thank you!

    EDIT: I gave the "foolproof restore" instructions a shot and right now I'm stuck at "Preparing iPad for Restore". hmm.....

    You are using the iTunes on PC method? Try disabling your computer's firewall, if yo have one. Don't forget to turn it back on immediately after. This used to be a problem with some iOS updates. I don't know if it still is, but you can try and see.

    Yes, I've tried disabling AV and firewall and still no luck. And yes, I'm on a PC.

    At this point, if you have an Apple Store in reasonable proximity, I'd recommend making a genius appointment and seeing if they can sort it.

    The other options might be to see if you can do anything using DFU mode to initiate a clean install of iOS. I'm not familiar with that approach, so if you have any questions try posting them in the Hacking section. Here is a link to the forum area. You'll find the DFU instructions in a sticky thread; at the top of the list of post if you in a web browser, in a separate tab if you are using the iPF app.

    Be sure to read up on the procedure and reasons for using it before you do anything. As I said, I'm not that familiar with it and may be wrong on any of several points.

    Good luck.
