    I started the update, my ipad3 restarted and then the apple and progress bar came up. It has been at 25% complete for over 45 minutes now. I'm upgrading from 6.0.

    Is it hung, or does it normally take this long? Starting to get nervous here..

    I find it's more reliable to do the OS updates from iTunes.

    Yeah, normally I do it that way. But this seemed like a small update, it's a Saturday morning and I was feeling lazy, so I just did it from the device. Bad idea. I didn't even backup first (although I have some older backups).

    Should I restart it and pray?

    It's not normal that's for sure. I usually update VIA iTunes, but last night I did it OTA and it installed fine with no hang ups. (iPad 3 also)

    Ok, I restarted it.

    Now, the little silver apple came up and it has gone no further. It's been sitting there for about 6 minutes.

    I am hooked to my computer now, and the ipad is not appearing in itunes.

    Quick update IMO.

    My 2cents is that only once did I update through iTunes butte several other installations all went quick and easy through my device.
    The outcomes varied but install was easy , including last nights 6 minute ios6.0.1
    No negative affects seen. It's more iPhone oriented anyway but I'll take it on my 2 pads.

    Another restart, still hanging at the first apple.

    Not showing up in itunes either, so I can't do a restore.

    What should I do? This really sucks.

    You probably need to put your iPad in DFU mode to get it to accept an update.

    Thanks for that info.

    So now it is in DFU mode.

    If I restore it, what will I lose?
