    I have tried restoring my ipad multiple times over the last 2 days - each time it takes from 6-10 hours, and still nothing works at the end. What the f---?

    A clean restore, or a restore from backup? If the second, try the first.

    And what are the symptoms? Won't turn on, crashes a lot, ?

    Otherwise it sounds like you might want to give Apple a call. If it's an iPad 2 it should still be under hardware warrantee, and it that's the problem Apple will fixe or replace it.

    Glad you got it fixed.

    Most future updates for iOS 5 will be delta updates (small patches) that can be done without the computer; so it should be safer. Though it is always a good idea to let the bleeding edge upgraders do a bit of bleeding first; if you're not into risk taking yourself. :D
