      ok. this didn't work. I get the error message "the software for Ipad was corrupted during download" Any ideas how to proceed?

      iTunes isn't very forgiving in terms of downloading the large firmware files.

      I suggest you follow our guide here to "manually" install. You are safe to SKIP step 2, since it likley does not apply to you, but please pay attention and follow all the others. You should have IOS 6.1 installed no problem if you do -

      I should add that I was successful in getting my Ipad in DFU mode. My PC did detect that my Ipad for an upgade. After the initial downloading of items it then switched over to "processing file" before I got the error message about them corrupted Ipad software during download. I want to provide as much info as possible. It further states to "unconnect and then reconnect or try later" I've done this so many times I've reached frustration level and wished I hadn't bothered to perform the upgrade. :mad:

      Yes, as I said, iTunes isn't very forgiving in terms of downloading such a large file, especially when the servers are very busy as they are now (tens of millions of potential iDevice owners - you can be sure lots are updating as we speak!).

      Follow the guide I posted (skip step 2). It specifically helps you get past this problem, by downloading the file separately from iTunes, and installing it "manually".

      Trust me. We wrote that guide back in 2011 - it works, and you are not the first to use it :D

      Pretty easy sailing for me and iPad 2. I don't think this release does a helluva lot for my device but it certainly didn't hurt anything.
