    Hello iPaders,
    recently, when I connect my iPad to my iTunes it asks me to trust this computer and I choose the option. Still iPad is never connected to iTunes consequently can't even use third party softwares like iTools or iFunbox. I tried all the methods in the apple website and googled all the possible reasons. I even completely uninstalled iTunes and all Apple softwares from my PC still, no luck! Please help!!
    P.S: restoring my iPad is out of the question.
    Thank you!

    I've deleted the duplicate post you made in the iPad 4 forum. Besides fracturing any resulting conversation on this topic, making it hard to follow, duplicate posting is against our rules.

    The problem here is that I don't know if your everything is more or less than my everything. Could you please list the things you've tried. It's possible that I, or someone else, might have one more everything, thing, that you can try. :)

    And that way we don't just keep telling to you do the same things over and over again. Well, hopefully not. We might tell you to try a specific thing over again. Sometimes pressing the same button over and over again works, as any good lab rat knows.

    Hi! Can you please tell what OS your PC runs? I had a Windows 7 and it takes lots of time to recognize some connected device. After 3-7 minutes, it displays a message and it finally connects.

    Hello,
    Thanks for your reply. I'm on windows 7 64 bit.
    I tried turn it the ipad off and back on. I tried Apple's suggestions on their page dedicated to solve this issue i.e delete all Apple softwares and services reboot and download a fresh version and install it. No luck.
    Other iDevices connect to my PC with no problems. And no the problem is not in my ipad or cable because my ipad connects to other PCs no problem. This bug is experienced by many iDevices users and the only solution they say is to reset all setting. And NO THAT IS NOT A SOLUTION in my opinion this is a major bug.
    Any further suggestions are kindly required.
    Sincerely,

    I'm far from an expert in Windows, but it sounds like the problem is with the iPad, and you may have to do that restore; if you need the iPad to work with that computer.

    If you have an iCloud backup you have a good chance of getting the iPad back to where it was before the restore; but it's always wise to go through your apps and save any important documents or pictures off the iPad before hand.

    If your computer has more than one USB port, be sure you've tried them all. No idea why, but sometimes it does make a difference.

    In case you missed any, here are all the usual fixes. The ones that do not risk your data on the iPad. Even if you've done them before it won't hurt to give them another try.

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Reset All Settings: Another, somewhat more drastic thing you can do is Reset All Settings. You'll find this under Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. It won't erase any of your content, apps, or accounts; but you will have to go through most of your other settings and re-tweak them back to your liking. Do not confuse this with Erase All Content and Settings.

    Did you try another reset of the iPad after tapping "Reset All Settings"?

    As long as you didn't press "Erase All Content and Settings" - cause that will completely ruin your jailbreak.

    So, try another full reset.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I don't normally comment on jailbreak threads, because my experience is limited to what I've read. I missed the fact that you are jailbroken. As far as I can tell it's just in the signature, and I rarely read those. Again, sorry.

    Still, Reset All Settings should not have cause any problem, even on a jailbroken device.

    Hopefully Marilyn and the other jailbreaking members of our forum should be able to help you. It is nearly impossible to permanently brick a device unless you have a hardware problem (or you run afoul of the activation lock feature).
