    i really need some experts advice...

    I tried to update my ipad 2 wifi to ios 7 and it got stuck on error 14 and it has been in "recovery mode" itunes screen ever since.

    Computer will recognize the ipad in recovery mode and when i try to restore, either by clicking "restore" or manual restore to the latest ios it start fine then it gets stuck and gives me error 14.

    I have put the ipad on DFU mode 100x then try to restore it and its a no go..

    I have restarted the computer numerous times and its a no go...

    i have change to 10 different ports and usb cables and its a no go..

    I have used 3 different computers its a no go..

    i have tried using tinyumbrella to try to kick it out of recovery and its a no go..

    i tried changing, modify the hosts files its a no go...

    i have disabled uninstalled all antivirus and its a no go...

    I am out of options... running latest ios versions and latest itunes...

    NEED AN EXPERT! please!!!

    It might be worth taking it to the Apple Store and seeing if they can update it there on one of their computers?
