    I have an iPad one and it is not jail broke but it says it is corrupted. I turned it on and got a message saying it was corrupted and the screen came up but it was a green colour. Now I have restored the normal way and also via DFU but I still get only the colour green on the iPad. Is there anything else I can do or is it toast. Any help would be appreciated. It is IOS 5.1.

    Is your iPad still under warranty?

    This error is usually caused by a problem with the graphics accelerator. It is a known issue and will likely require a trip to the genius bar to be fixed.

    Was this unit dropped recently? Is there any external damage to the unit that you can identify?

    If there is no indication of damage you have a better chance at Apple providing you a refurb than not. Regardless though they aren't required to replace the unit so be friendly, respectful, and honest when talking to your sales associate at the Apple store so to increase your chances of getting a replacement unit.

    Good luck

    What a bummer. It can't hurt to take it to your closest Apple store. Hopefully you'll get lucky and and they will replace it. Good Luck!

    I agree. In your case, you just need to bring it to the nearest Apple center. I'm afraid there's nothing you can do to fix it yourself based on how you described your iDevice condition. Good luck mate.

    I can't help, but I can tell you I was given an iPad 1 for Christmas 2010 and six months later it started doing all those things. It was replaced under warranty and then the replacement started exhibiting the same symptoms. Replacements come with a 90 day warranty. I am now on my fourth replacement (ie, fifth iPad) and the 90 days will be up any time now. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
