    In April I was getting distracted by my iPad and needed to study for my upcoming exams, so got my mother to restrict my Safari, YouTube, Mail and Installing New Apps. After exams finished in June, she ended up forgetting the restrictions passcode. I have tried every single combo possible & still no success. So I am unable to access all of the above. However I can still go on my iPad (1G).

    Now I would really like access to my restricted apps again, and the only possible solution seemed to be restoring my iPad. I backed up all my apps, music, videos and notes, then started to restore it. I had Safari, Youtube etc. back. Then I clicked on 'Restore from backup' aswell as syncing back my apps and now all these things disappeared again. So now I restored it again as 'Set up as a new iPad', and Safari etc. is back. If I put my apps, music & videos back they will disappear again!?

    So I am very confused. Can someone please help me as this is very infuriating? :(

    Restoring from backup will reenable the restrictions, becuase your backup currently has the restrictions.

    Once you've restored as new, you need to setup the apps you require manually in itunes, rather than from your backup and you should be ok.

    Just like you did when you first ever synced with itunes.

    Go to your ipad in itunes and select the things you wish to sync.
