So last week I bought an iPad 2 from phones4u and it was locked to orange. My local Apple store amazingly heroically swapped it for a new unlocked iPad 2 and I was enjoying it until tonight. As some of you may have read in one of the flickering screen threads I mentioned my screen was flickering occasionally but had stopped and I thought nothing of it... Tonight it starts flickering and turning on and off by itself. I reset it and it started doing it again before turning off and asking to be restored. I restored it successfully and then it booted - great or so I thought -but an hour later it then decided to go into a boot loop for a good 10 minutes and I couldn't turn it off or on and I was no where near a computer to try another restore. I then tried to restore again when I got home and I have been getting 1013 errors (which I know can be fixed using a different USB or computer) however there is no point as before I could try again it decided to go into a boot loop again for ages and then I tried one more time on a different mac and it failed again and then boot loop... When I say boot loop I mean it wouldn't even hit the restore screen - it just flashed the apple logo on and off and on and off. Now its gone back to the restore screen but it clearly needs to be replaced! I have made a genius appointment but honestly I doubt my chances of walking away with another new iPad 2 due to stock shortages. Not been a very lucky 7 days for me!
