iPad 2 and IOS 9.3 = brick

Like many others, my trusty iPad 2 is now a brick after update to IOS 9.3.  I tried all of the following conditions:

1. connecting to another Wi - Fi network

2 connection via iTunes

3 recovery mode via iTunes

4 turn off / turn on back

5 force the restart of the iPad

Whenever it fails to 'enable '.  iTunes says that it cannot authenticate my iPad2.

So all that remains is the restore through DFU mode.  My last return is up to months ago.  My question: when you go through the DFU procedure I get to the window that says basically, ' are you sure you want to restore, this will erase all content» Mode DFU never gives an option to back up before restoring?




Sane here, not resolved 30 hours and countting.

  • WG102 fails with iPad / iPhone with iOS 6 and WPA2 / AES - urgent correction necessary!

    Hello *.
    After upgrading my iPad to iOS 3 6 he constantly fails to connect to WiFi with WPA2 and AES - hidden or broadcast SSID - at home and at work because the device does not accept the WPA2 password. This is also the case for my iPhone 4s, but the two appliances worked with WiFi (WPA2 / AES) perfectly with previously installed iOS 5.1.1.
    I tried to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 but it seems to be is no longer possible to downgrade the two iPad 3 and iPhone 4S as certification and maybe the viewport for iOS 5.1.1 was closed by Apple.

    Strange behaviour seems to address a problem of firmware of the installed Netgear WG 102 APs that all do not allow the connection of iOS 6 devices with WPA2 / AES enabled :-(

    Does anyone know about a possible solution to connect to WiFi with WPA2 and AES with 3 iPad / iPhone 4 and iOS 6 update for Netgear WG 102 APs?
    Thanks a lot for any help and advice.
    Best regards from the Germany

    The downgrade to 5.0.1 works. He fixed a connectivity with my two devices IOS 6, my wife 5 iPhone and my new retinal screen of the iPad. It does not appear to have caused problems of connectivity with other devices down to 5.0.1

  • iPad security and multiple users

    I intend to buy an iPad Mini 4 (subject to change) for my sister who is currently in palliative care. She is devastated bed and needs to get his affairs in order and make some estate planning bills etc.

    I wonder if you can have the user double security with the iPad or the ramifications of the reset of the iPad once she spends or to access its iPad rather than it becomes a brick.

    I have already created my sister with iCloud account and I have the user name and password. I'm not sure I've ever had this situation come before. If I need to access the device what would be my options.  I guess she will tend to choose the fingerprint sensor, if it isn't bug or perhaps a simple access code instead.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    I'm sorry to hear about the State of your sister, but I'm very happy that you asked these questions now rather than later when it could be too late.

    One person at the same time has an iOS device.  That's how they are designed.  So I strongly suggest you think in this way, which is to come:

    • Your sister has and uses the iPad.
    • Your sister has the iPad (as if it sells or it betrays) to a new owner.
    • You take possession of the iPad and set up like yours, as if it were a new device.

    To do this, before your sister frees him, here's what should happen:

    What to do before you sell or give away your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch - Apple Support

    So everything I want to say is that you are ready to run (or help run) all the steps in the article.  Once you get the iPad and be responsible, be prepared to make settings > general > reset > erase all content and settings (if it had not already been done).  When you do that, you can resume the iPad and it will have no memory of what either of the past.

  • iPad 3 Mini + iOS 10 + iTunes 11.4 - compatible?

    Hello.  I plan to update my iPad iOS 10 Mini 3.  Before that, I wanted to ensure that I would not immediately be in compatibility with other hardware/software problems.  Here's what's in the mix:

    1. iPad Mini 3 (model MH3L2LL/A), running iOS 8.3.  I have everything backed up the Mini via iTunes to my old desktop Mac, which is...

    2. an old Mac Pro (MacPro4, 1) running Mac OS X 10.6.8.  Yes, it's an old Mac with an old OS (which runs great... I've been waiting for the replacement for the current model from the 'bottle' Mac Pro... "I'll probably die before Tim releases who, but I digress). For iPad Mini backups, synchronization, etc., I use...

    3 iTunes on the Mac 11.4 (18)

    My concern: I'm looking to avoid triggering a cascade of updates required (from iTunes and Mac OS) which would deadlock with me being unable to synchronize the iPad (which will run iOS 10) because she would need to a later version of iTunes, or a more recent version of Mac OS.

    Check for updates in iTunes 11.4, it says ' this version of iTunes (11.4) is the current version. "  No doubt this is a half-truth, and it's really just the last version, which runs on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (I'm sure that there is a newer version of iTunes).  I'm not going to update the version of Mac OS X running on the old Mac Pro (I'll replace it the machine later, but not right now).

    So, my question of compatibility:

    Using my existing Mac running Mac OS X (10.6.8) and iTunes (11.4), If I update my iPad Mini 3 iOS 10, I will always be able to sync, backup, etc. the iPad Mini 3 to my Mac via iTunes?

    Hope that above all makes sense.

    Thanks for your help.

    (wasn't sure what community to put this-I chose iPad, but could of course also go to several others)

    You're in trouble. iOS 10 must 12.5.1. Update your iTUnes is required to the installation iOS10 (if you install via iTunes)

    You can always upgrade, but you will not be able to synchronize with your mac.
