    Hey guys,

    This is my first post on these forums and I don't really know where anything goes. I hope this is in the right place but if its not maybe a mod would be willing to move it?

    So, this is my problem. On my Ipad, no matter what App i open (as long as it did not come with the ipad, Calender, notes, and suchlike) instantly shuts down. I touch the app, it gives me a black screen for half a second, and then goes back to the main screen.

    The only things that I have done with it so far is use the internet and listen to music. The Safari browser also does not crash...

    So far, i have tried a hard and soft reboot and restoring from a backup from before I had this problem, nothing has worked.

    Thanks evermuch

    Restore it back to a new device and start from there

    Sounds like you need to authorise your device. Plug into iTunes, then click Store > Authorise this computer.

    At least, I think this is it...

    might there be anything less drastic? or is that likely to be the only thing that works?

    Its most likely one of the apps you downloaded thats giving you trouble. Your best bet would be to restore your device, but not from a backup do a fresh install of all your apps.

    You don't need to restore. In iTunes deauthorize your device.. Sync your iPad. Reauthorize your device and sync again. You should be good to go
