Hi all, been a while since I was last here...
I have a prolem with my iPad 2 (WiFi + 3g, 64GB White) and I hope you have some better news than what I have read so far...
Today I decided to update my iPad that I really need tomorrow morning. I have the latest version of iTunes installed (10.4.1.10), running Windows 7 Premium Home 64x. When I did the update, it downloaded the latest version (4.5.3 (could be wrong here)), it unpacked and started installing. At one point it gave the error `iPad cannot be resored. Unknown error (09)Â´.
I tried to recover, but it failed with the same error, when the progress bar on the iPad was at 60%/65%, iTunes bar mentions `recover iPad firmwareÂ´.
I have tried hard reset, different USB ports, different cables, all gave no better result. I also tried this solutoin, again to no avail.
On Apple support forum I read it is a hardware failure and the device would have to be replaced (link). Nevertheless, I hope there is hope for me to recover it today (as shops do not open before I fly off abroad)...so my hope is on you people.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
