    Hi,

    Recently my iPad was stolen so I logged on me.com to track it. I was successful in logging on and tracking it and then I wiped it to clear all data. However, now I am unable to track it anymore. Is there any way to undo this, or to continue tracking the iPad? it is still displaying remote wipe pending.

    Thank you in advance

    No lol. You wiped all of the data. Why didn't you call the police?

    Nope, that goes against the whole remote wipe type of process. You wiped it, so now the thief has a factory fresh iPad to sell/use

    No

    And I know its kind of late to Could-haves, but what you should have added a Passcode first (that way the person who took the iPad wouldn't be able to log in to your personal data) and then track it, then you could have pin-pointed your iPad to a specific location, then could have notified the police.

    I agree with maflynn, you've now giving the thief a Factory new iPad to use or sell.

    Wether if you have (had) the WiFi Model or the 3G model, you could have gotten a real good estimate of where to locate your iPad.

    The wiping proccess has not yet started, meaning that the thief has left the iPad off or has no internet connection. Is it possible to jailbreak the iPad without turning it on? Does this mean he can access data on the iPad? By the way thank you all for the quick replies!
