    [ios 5] Pages syncing help!

    Thanks for the advice! You gave me an idea. I turned documents etc off on my iPhone in the iCloud Settings. Switched it back on and, bam, everything showed up on my iPad. I have a LOT more documents on my iPad, though, and they hadn't showed up on my iPhone... Which suggests human user error. So...

    [ios 5] Pages syncing help!

    I run Pages on my iPad and iPhone, but I can't get documents to sync between them. I have all the settings turned on as they should be, but still when I upgraded none of the documents on my iPad (which all auto-uploaded to the cloud) appeared on my iPhone. So I tested things by emailing a...

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    The app downloaded okay, but when I opened it there was nothing there except the "get started with Pages" bit. Crap, crap, crap. Oh, well. Guess it's restore to factory and sync with library afresh for me. Thanks for the help, though; I do appreciate it. :(

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    Stupid question, I know, but how do I "install pages" without syncing? Do you mean use the App Store to download it again? Or do you mean work some wizardry from inside iTunes?

    Okay, thanks Mike. Out of curiosity, do you know what all that taken-up space could be?

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    Thanks for the help, Mike, but CRAP. Restore was successful, sort of. "10 MB photos, 13.13 GB other, 15.84 GB free". Nothing but home screen apps are there, none of my legit apps. Is there ANY way I can recover lost files, like my Pages document? It's important, and really the only necessary...

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    It seems to be restoring now, albeit slowly. New question: What are the ramifications of restoring a non-jailbroken iPad from a post-jailbreak sync? Will I lose any disk space or anything weird like that?

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    I had it at 3.2, but iTunes forced it into 3.2.1 when I applied DFU. "Rebook"? What does that mean? I'll leave it for an hour or so more and update appropriately. But in the interim, do you know if setting it up as a new iPad and then syncing it with my library will delete stuff like my...

    [Last Thread I Promise] Problem restoring iPad

    So I decided to try restoring my iPad to its unjailbroken status, so I put it into DFU mode and reset it to factory settings. But apparently I screwed up -- iTunes only keeps one iPad backup, and the one it has is from a post-jailbreak sync. On a whim I'm trying to restore to that backup, but it...

    Jailbreaking backup and update question (3.2.1)

    All of the folders in the area you directed me to have names that are just long strings of alphanumeric characters; same with all the files in those folders. None have dates. So how do I identify which is the July 11th backup that I made?

    Rock permanently froze my iPad? Help!

    I did, as well as Kiriwhatever, but I removed them both the day after jailbreaking through Cydia.

    Rock permanently froze my iPad? Help!

    Hmm. Came back after a while. Weird. Did I just run out of memory or something?

    Rock permanently froze my iPad? Help!

    It's still hanging on the loading screen (Apple logo). I'm going to leave it for about half an hour to see if it boots up on its own. But if it doesn't, what are my options? Put it into recovery mode and do a reset / reload from backup? Edit: It may not have been the Rock app, but that's the...

    Rock permanently froze my iPad? Help!

    I have a jailbroken iPad (OS 3.2, broken using Spirit). Been jailbroken since last week. I use both Cydia and Rock. Left the iPad alone all weekend, get home and find out that Rock has to update something (not sure what), which it did automatically, and AppStore had to update Starwalk. I...

    Jailbreaking backup and update question (3.2.1)

    Alright, then. My one hesitation is that I don't use Rock right now, just Cydia with appsync, and I don't know if I want to add Rock on top of that (like I said, I'm new to this so my hesitations might be silly). But I'll do the Rock method if it's the best or only way. Anybody else have...

    Anyone made the switch from Netbook to iPad?

    I'm a graduate student, so carrying a big bag stuffed with books and a computer to and from the office every day is a necessity. I used to carry a very nice little Linux netbook with me, but it got stolen. As it was my only laptop and my primary work machine, I replaced it immediately with a...

    Jailbreaking backup and update question (3.2.1)

    Thanks again, Mike. Can I use aptbackup from Cydia, or has that not been updated for the iPad yet?

    Jailbreaking backup and update question (3.2.1)

    Thanks for the speedy response, MikesTooLz! Just some brief followups for clarification: So the backup I want will be identified by name and date of creation? Or will it be one of those obscure Apple "long string of alphanumeric characters" filenames? And I can just copy it to some other...

    Jailbreaking backup and update question (3.2.1)

    Hi guys. I realize this is a newbie two-part question, but I've searched and haven't been able to find any helpful answers. So I thought I'd try these otherwise excellent forums. First part: I jailbroke my iPad a few days ago and am loving it (Spirit worked for me, for some reason, despite...
