Hi folks, thanks for taking the time to read my problem. Around an hour ago I decided to reset my iPad to factory settings. That is, Erase all content and settings. Upon completion, it tried to boot back up, but crashed on the startup screen with the Silver apple in the middle of the display. I've tried turning off and on the iPad several times since, and eventually the little 'working' or 'loading' icon appears in the middle of the iPad, but its stationary and thats as far as the iPad decides to boot. iTunes isn't recognising the device as it wont switch on, and the thing wont switch on if its attached to my Mac or not, i'm pretty stumped. Anyone got any suggestions of a fix? Thanks again folks. - Kaney.
