How to restore ipod


Many owners of Apple products found themselves in a situation where as a result of a system failure, unsuccessful tweak installation, or problems caused by jailbreaking, the gadget could not be loaded in normal mode. Of course, the first thought is to run to the service center for the help of professionals. However, a successful recovery of the iPad or iPhone is possible at home, but only if the cause of the malfunction is software. If your iPad hits a hard surface or falls into water, you won’t be able to save it on your own.

Recovery Mode

If the error while loading the iPad is caused by a software failure, then the first thing you should resort to to fix the situation is the emergency recovery mode Recovery Mode. It is used to restore the functionality of any Apple-controlled iOS device. This mode is provided by the manufacturer, so you can use it without fear of losing warranty.

So, if iPad does not show signs of life, you need to use Recovery Mode:

  1. Turn iPad Off Any Way You Can
  2. Press and hold the “Home” button

  4. If everything is done correctly, then the iTunes icon and a standard USB cable will be displayed on the tablet computer screen
  5. Launch aityuns and wait for the gadget to load in Recovery Mode.
    After successfully restoring the device to its normal state, you must restart the iPad.

  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPad.
  3. Press and hold the Home button while simultaneously pressing the Power button. In this case, the Arrl logo should appear on the screen.

It is not uncommon for hacked devices to freeze for a long time in recovery mode, signaling a software failure. At the same time, attempts to get the iPad out of this state using a reboot do not help. Especially for such cases, the RedSn0w utility and the TinyUmbrella program were created, which can be found on the developers' websites.

Jailbreak Fix

Often, an error loading the iPad is the result of jailbreak abuse. If the device constantly reboots because of it, and the applications start to crash, you will have to use one of the ways to restore the tablet to normal functioning. A jailbreak error can be fixed by resetting iPad to the factory settings. The main thing is not to forget to reserve everything that is possible before, because after the procedure is complete, the device will be absolutely clean, all information from it will disappear. In order for the boot error caused by hacking the iOS operating system to be fixed without consequences for the iPad, you must do the following:

  4. Wait until the image of the iPad with the cable connected appears on the screen.
  5. Click the "Restore" button in iTunes. In the process of recovery, a new firmware will be added to the iPad, the error will be fixed, and the device will start working again, as usual.

Saving data backup

Successful recovery of the gadget can be done using a backup, which will require iCloud or iTunes to create. If necessary, you can restore the firmware of the device or restrict data recovery.

When using aityuns for software recovery, perform the following operations:

  1. Create a backup copy of the gadget and transfer all the data from it to the computer, be sure to synchronize them.
  2. When connected via a USB cable, open the device.
  3. Select ipad in the "Devices" list, open the "Overview" tab and click the "Restore iPad" button.

A simple restore or upgrade recovery is possible. After the process is completed, you can re-fill the tablet with music, video and other files stored in the backup. In the event that in this way it is not possible to return the device to working, it is worth looking at the Arrl website, where you can find information on how to fix such a mistake.

The iPad interfering error is also easily fixed with iCloud. This method requires the following steps:

  1. Reset all settings.
  2. Launch the setup assistant, select "Restore from iCloud copy."
  3. Enter the password and Arrle ID.
  4. Select one of the proposed backups (there are three in total) and click the "Restore" button.

After the gadget is restarted, all its settings and accounts will be restored. Music, films, books and various programs purchased earlier will be downloaded again on the iPad. In order to prevent any error at this stage, you may need to enter passwords for all accounts. Each restored program has its own progress bar. If you need to restore a program in the first place, you must click on its icon. The device will install previously downloaded or latest versions of programs.
Unfortunately, it happens that the owner of the iPad does everything possible so that the tablet boots up or stops freezing and rebooting, but the error still remains. If the above methods did not help to revive the device, it is possible that the reason for the loss of the gadget’s functionality lies in the malfunction of any parts.

Then you will have to contact the service center, whose specialists will diagnose the device and determine which part caused problems with the download. As a rule, everything is resolved by replacing the battery or processor.

IPad Resuscitation Methods

Apple has equipped its products with several effective tools to restore the normal operation of the iPad even when it does not turn on. These tools include:

  • iCloud cloud drive
  • iTunes app.

You can perform reanimation both to the factory settings, and with the help of a backup copy, that is, until the state when the backup was made.

Using cloud data storage

First, consider the simplest situation: after an unsuccessful update or an attempt to obtain the rights of the main administrator, the iPad Air strongly “lags”, but still turns on, that is, it lets you into its menu. In this case, you can roll back the system through the iCloud virtual storage. This rollback method is possible only when the procedure for creating a backup of the system via iCloud is activated on the tablet.

To enable redundancy, you must:

  1. Go to the “Storage and copies” section (for iPad Air with iOS 7 and below) or “Backup” (for iPad on iOS 8). It is located in “Settings” - “iCloud”.
  2. Drag the slider to the "On" position and click "Create backup."

After that, backups will be recorded on the iCloud virtual disk daily, of course, if access to the Internet via Wi-fi is enabled on the tablet.

To restore iPad’s functionality through backup via iCloud, you need to do the following:

  1. Go to the "Reset" section. It is hidden in the "Basic" tab.
  2. Click on "Erase content and settings." If your iPad Air has a restriction password, enter it.
  3. Confirm your actions by clicking on “Erase”. A warning appears that all user information posted on the device will be irretrievably lost. Therefore, if you have anything valuable on your tablet, keep it in a safe place.
  4. After the reset, the activation procedure starts. After completing the initial settings of the device, you will be prompted to restore the iPad in one of the following ways: configure the device as new, restore it from iCloud backup, restore it from backup via iTunes. We choose the second method.
  5. After the system rolls back, you will need to activate your Apple ID account by entering the appropriate password, configure geolocation services and standard iOS applications.
