    Anyone done this yet? Tried to update to 4.3 and got an error and wiped out my own ipad!!!!! I've uninstalled itunes then reinstalled, trying to restore now, so I connect then its.detected im in recovery mode, so I click restore and at the top it goes through extracting software, and more than half way through the ipad screen flashes the apple symbol, then back to usb to itunes symbol. on the left hand side under devices, the ipad disappears.....so when it finishes I get a pop up saying ipad could not be restored, devise could not be.found!!!!!!! Im lost and bought to throw this thing out the window

    I'd call Apple Support at this point. That's what you paid them for.

    Wish I could be of more help, but I'm not sure I could figure out what to do if I was there, let alone second hand.

    Ouch.

    Still, I suppose it was inevitable. No matter how stable an upgrade there are always enough failures to keep any help support system busy. Been on both sides of the equation, and trust me, no-one has a happy day.

    So nice to know I'm not the only one with this problem. I have a 'reservation' at the local Apple store later today. We'll have to compare store vs phone later.
