    I think I am sunk until I return home, but I had an issue with the 8.0.1 update on my iPad 3 that I need help fixing.

    I did the ota update yesterday, but instead of updating, when it powers up I get a picture of the 30 pin connector and an iTunes symbol. I guess the ios update went bad.

    I would plug it into my computer to restore, but I on a trip and won't be home for a few more days. Is there a way to force the iPad into reloading the firmware via the Internet, or any other kind of fallback/recovery mode that doesn't need a computer?

    At worse, it is just inconvient to me (1st world problem), but it would be nice to have it running for my long airline home.

    Are you anywhere near an apple store? They would probably help you update it/reinstall.

    Nope, too busy working. I should be home tomorrow, so I will be able to take care of it then anyway.

    Thanks for the idea however.
