    Default iOS6.1 failed to install

    Hi,
    I tried to install iOS6.1 (official release, no beta) yesterday evening (CET) on my iPad2 (wifi&3G) and the operation failed (error 6103).

    When the operation failed (black screen, Apple logo, empty progress bar), I had to make a full restore of the iPad. The good thing: the full restore worked perfectly but took 4 hours.

    Before giving it a second trial I am wondering if anybody else experienced problems for installing yhe latest iOS version on their iPad?

    Have not heard of any other reports of this happening any where.

    I would try it again...

    @ipheura

    Not jailbroken

    Update through iTunes

    So, a very "regular" situation, otherwise I would have been mentioning

    I had the same problem with the iPhone. Did not get an error, just froze with message saying "Restoring iPhone" or something similar. Had to abort after waiting 1.5 hrs and then restore iPhone. Once restored, it said OS6.1 was installed. Not sure if it really is or is not but its working

    Default iOS6.1 failed to install

    Hi, have the same problem than mushluck.

    After the restore the General settings indicate that the iPad is now with v6.1

    Not sure whether this is correct, considering the problems when installing.

    In any case, since this operation I have regular password problems for the connection to the Exchange server, where my main email account is hosted. iOS asks for retyping the password, however if I cancel the coding it can access the server anyhow. Looks like some wait-time or retries that is set a bit short. I heard otherscomplaining about this with iOS 6.0, when I had no problem.

    Any idea?

    Default iOS6.1 failed to install

    Hi,

    The Exchange problems that I am having sine 6.1 seem to be an issue also reported by other forums.

    As those mention, it seems as if ( with iOs 6.1) the number of connections it tries to get with the Exchange server are looping, causing Exchange servers to start blocking and answering to the overloading request.

    ( this was reported on www silicon fr)

    I am going to open another issue on this
