I have been reading through threads for the last two days, some people having problems, others not. I found the instructions for doing a clean install and downloaded the ios8 file manually. I have nothing on my ipad that I would want to keep so I wouldn't be loosing anything by doing this. Is it probably the ideal upgrade method? Basically like making my Air the same as going and buying a new Air with ios8 on it from the factory. I wasn't even planning on upgrading but when I found out ios8 fixes the pop up issue in safari, I definitely want that. Web browsing has become almost unusable due to the pop ups I get wanting me to install apps on every webpage.
