    My iPad 3 is soooo slow lately. Also my home button isn't working well. I want to restore it and use my AppleCare to get a replacement. How do I backup/restore and not lose apps and settings? Thanks!

    Back it up in iTunes then put it in DFU mode and restore in iTunes, that will restore you to the latest firmware but this won't matter if your getting it replaced anyway.

    Just bare in mind the replacement iPad will probably be on a IOS version of firmware that can't be broken

    Thanks for the response. What is DFU mode? And how do u put in in there? Is that different then backing up in iTunes then clicking restore from that backup?

    Google on DFU

    To get into DFU
    connect ipad, hold both Home an Power button together until ipad turns off
    Keep holding both for 3 more seconds
    now release power button while still holding home button, hold Home for another 10 seconds.

    Ipad will have a black screen and itunes will recognise an ipad in recovery mode(actually in DFU) hit restore and it will restore to ios 6.01

    Thanks. What's the benefit of doing this over the standard restore way?

    removes any of the jailbreak. the Sticky up at the top will answer everything and still applies to your device for the most part. 1st thread at the top.
