Ok so here's the situation: Yesterday i downloaded iTunes 10.5 in order to update my ipad2 to ios 5 (with a genuine developers account). After downloading, iTunes gave me an error message saying the iPad couldn't be updated (error 3002, if that means anything). I haven't used the macbook for a while and figured downloading the latest hardware might fix it. It downloaded fine, but after the reboot I'm stuck at the purple planet screen and nothing happens. I don't think the update even installed as I haven't seen any progress bar. I've turned it on and off after leaving it at the planet screen overnight without results. I've also tried resetting the pram, with no effect. To further complicate things, the display is broken so I'm using an external monitor which means I have to close the lid of the macbook just after turning it on for the external one to light up. It's one of those black macbooks from a couple years ago, with upgraded ram and new battery. Apart from the iTunes problem (which might be unrelated) it was running (snow leopard) fine before restart. Anyone know what might be wrong, or what i can do?
