Why can't I put my iPad mini first gen into recovery mode?
I updated my iPad mini first gen last night to 8.1.3. After the download was complete, I had to enter my passcode to go through the set up process. I have never had a passcode on my iPad before. Of course when I type in a passcode, it locks me out of my iPad for an extended period of time. I have tried several times to reset my iPad through recovery mode and it won't allowed me to do until I am able to put in the passcode. I tried to erase my iPad through Find My iPhone and I can't do that until I can connect to wifi which I am unable to do until I unlock it.
Has this happened to anyone before? If so, does anyone has any kind of suggestion on how to fix this?
