    Hi, So I got my Ipad around early december, and to my surprise I have never updated it. I don't know if that matters, I have synced my movies/apps/movies etc., but somehow I just overlooked the update software area :(
    So now my Ipad has been "downloading 1 item" "Ipad software update" for almost two days now. I am not sure if I caused the problem by not updating it promptly when i got it and every now and again, if it's being caused by a contaminated application or file... i just don't know what the deal is, but i am really starting to get nervous that something is wrong with it.
    please help :)

    On a side note i am also having a problem with my IPad crashing anytime I scroll through my pictures, it goes to a black screen and then takes about a minute or two to turn back on to the apple screen and then finally my home screen.
    I don't know if this is part of the issue or not.

    Hope that was detailed enough, any help is much appreciated.
    (a detailed fix would be optimal...:))

    Thanks

    IPad should not be taking two days to download anything. Something is wrong. Cancel it if u can, unplug it, and try to do a reset. While iPad on, hold home and sleep button down at the same time for 5-10 secs. It should reboot to apple logo screen. If that didn't help, try a hard reset. With iPad off, hold down sleep and home button t same time for like 30secs. It will seem like a long time but keep holding. IPad should reboot once or twice. Then hopefully u good to go. If none of those work, I'd do a restore, from a backup, on iTunes. It'll put u back to the last time u backed up ur iPad and it was wring fine.
    As far as the crashing during photos, I had that happen on an older iOS version. So I'm assuming u on an old one. Just upgrade the iOS version, once u get it wrk in..lol, to the latest firmware and u should be good, no more crashing. The latest firmware ver. Is 4.3.1. Plus an untethered jailbreak was released an hour or so ago for it, if u want to jailbreak. I'm on 4.2.1 and I never had those photos crash on me anymore. It gets really annoying so I know where you coming from. It's a bug in the older firmware causing that problem. Once I upgraded, it went away ;-)

    Okay thank you, I am going to try that.

    As far as jailbreaking goes, i have now researched it, watched several videos and read most of the posts in the "hacking" section of the forum, but I am wondering if you know of a really solid link that goes into fine detail about jailbreaking. I get the basics and think it would be really helpful, but I can't seem to find a diverse amount of information... I think I don't know what to google haha. I mostly get people asking questions about it, but I really just want some facts. :)

    thanks again
