I have tried to reinstall the ios7 beta2 several times to no avail. I can't restore because find my ipad is on.
It wont let me downgrade to iOS6.
I got into the activation screen, and set it up, but now I cant get past the apple logo. It just shows the apple logo over and over. Will not start up.
What do I do!!???
I am a developer, and the device is registered. Its an iPad4. non cellular.


Thanks!

Does putting it into DFU mode and restoring to iOS 6 not work?

Bricked means you can't get to DFU mode to restore. So do that, and then if you can't, not much can be done.

Sorry, I can get into DFU mode. Just don't want to have to do it.

Lol, well there's no other way to restore. If you want to use your iPad again, you'll have to go into DFU mode.

As a developer you should know your device isn't bricked then...

Just clean restored mine with zero problems.

Try backing everything up, installing fresh and then you can restore your info from iCloud.

If your a developer wouldn't you get better results if you posted this on Apple's Developer Forums? You would probably get better help there.

I am able to access the developer forums for free. I just used my regular Apple ID to sign in and it worked.

I thought bricked meant it was a dead, useless device?

I had this problem with my iPad on iOS 7. I was able to get it into DFU mode and I'm now restoring to iOS 6 with a backup. Funny thing is my UDID was registered. =\

That's what I always thought as well. But according to Wikipedia...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brick_%28electronics%29

"In one common sense of the term, "bricking" suggests that the damage, often a misconfiguration of essential on-board software, is so serious as to have rendered the device permanently unusable.

However, another use of the term "bricked" is understood to describe a situation where a device is unable to function even when the device does have potential to be recovered later to a working state. In this sense, the damage may be reversible; it is only during the period that it's unable to function that the device is deemed "bricked". This is often referred to as a "soft brick" whereas an unrecoverable device is a "hard brick"."

The worst comment in a forum ever... and no, you are not a developer.
