    My iPad 2 is crashing a lot. I'm wondering if restoring from m iPad 1 backup was a good idea. Any one else suffering random app crashes?

    The only thing I have noticed is one app that doesn't interact with the touchscreen right....I have to click the opposit side of the screen to get a button to press.....only that 1 app though so it may be the app BUT its one of the top free ones which makes me nervous

    I also used my iPad 1 backup to migrate over to the iPad 2. No problems so far (barely been a day) except for reentering a few passwords.

    Not a single app crash since I bought it on launch day. What apps are crashing? I set mine up as new instead of restoring from my original iPad.

    iPad Crashes

    I've had the same problem. It has crashed on 3 separate occasions. I don't know why, there hasn't been a pattern with the crashing. It has done it with different apps each time.

    preliminary tests looks like Wifi antenna is stronger on my ipad1 than my ipad2. Will keep testing, but you'd be surprised at how few wifi zones I run into. Thus both my pads are 3G!

    I haven't had any problems with mine so far, I guess I'm lucky or I just don't go looking for tiny problems to warrant a return.

    When you sync your iPad, you can look at the crash logs that gets placed on your computer with every sync.

    If your browser is crashing, try to clear your cache/cookies/etc from your Safari. My guess would be you may be having some issues with apps that are not fully 4.3 compliant just yet.

    Which apps crash for you?

    I noticed issues with wifi today. It just wouldn't connect. I'm t a hotel so ill check when I get home to see if issues persist.

    I'm seeing crashes with twitter and icab right now. I don't have much running either.

    it could just be that the app hasn't been tested on ios 4.3. i was having issues with instapaper, but it's all good now after the latest update.

    Ummm who said anything about returning? I really dislike posters who assume the worst it isn't constructive.

    I'm trying to get some help and solve an issue here.

    I migrated from my iPad 1 and have had a lot of freezing and crashing. No apps in particular causing it from what I can tell. With one app, Overkill, the touch screen responds as if it has been rotated 180 degrees. I am restoring it right now.

    When I get home I'm gonna restore and start as new. I'll lose my game stats and setup but it is a small price to pay for a solution.

    I didn't even know I had the light bleed issue until today. It doesn't bug me. I don't turn mine up to bright and use it in dark rooms. They'll Have to pry this iPad 2 from my cold dead hands. Cuz I gave my mom my iPad 1 and she will not give it back.

    Report back and peep me on the outcome. I may have to go that route when I get home next week.:(

    I also have twitter running and I just played with iCab for the past 20 mins or so trying to crash it... I had youtube videos playing in one tab, espn, pages with loads of pictures (like that forum.skyscraperpage.com) and visiting a bunch of javascript pages all in different tabs. Unfortunately I could not get it to crash... I did set up my iPad 2 as new and did not import my iPad 1 backup.

    The iPad is now stuck in recovery mode.:(

    1) Try to re-download the firmware and try again
    2) If the above doesn't work... then (on a mac) go to /Users/<name>/Library/iTunes/Device Support
    and delete or move all the files in that directory and try again

    I'm thinking it was my restore from backup. I've been on two forums and ive seen users get stuck in recovery mode.

    I was building from new the first night. Then I interrupted it to restore from backup because I wanted to retain my game stats. Then I got stuck in recovery for a while and finally fixed it so I could restore from backup. That may have caused my issue. But I'm hesitant to go back to recovery because I don't want it to get stuck again. But I guess I'll try it. :confused: I'm willing to do anything I love my iPad 2

    My primary issue: finding a third-party case for the iPad 2. The Apple-supplied cover in my opinion does not provide enough protection. [​IMG]

    I think you should always start fresh with new hardware.
