    Sorry for the bad pic. It just happened randomly while I was browsing Flipboard. Is this a common error? What do I do? :(


    It's a new iPad 4G 16GB model if that helps any. I just made an appointment to see the genius bar tomorrow morning.

    It's not common. If it persists, try restoring the software on your iPad.

    Google DFU mode, and follow directions. Once it's in DFU mode, iTunes should recognize it.

    same problem, no fix

    I am having the same problem, started after install of ios 7 update. restore did not help. ipad been sitting for months. decided to take it out today and just give it a try. it actually recovered, went through setup, after about a min it shut off and went to connect to iTunes logo. now when I try to restre/recover it gets to the "communicating with ipad" stage and the ipad turns on, apple logo comes up and then the kernel panic shows up across the bottom. Looks EXACTLY like the picture posted. This has only happened while trying to restore/recover. Now it will not even attempt to restore just sits stuck in this state. I keep reading discussions on this topic, which seems to be a common issue after an update but this is the first ive found on this kernel panic. I would love some insight as to what is causing this and how it can be repaired. its an iPad 3, 64 gb, 2 years old.
