    I've never personally done this, so I'm not sure how long it takes, but I have heard it takes a long time to do. I would connect my iPad to iTunes and from there restore it to factory settings.

    Hi there...

    I tried connecting it to iTunes but now its just frozen in the resetting mode..All its showing is the loading symbol! None of the two buttons are working.

    Try holding the lock and home button for 30 seconds. This will force restart the device.
