    hello guys ,

    so i updated to the latest ios7 and i left my ipad on charge , when i came back , my ipad wouldnt start ,, its in recovery mode i guess

    it tells me to plug it to the computer and restore it via itunes , and all my stuff will be deleted !!!

    is there any way to exit this mode ?

    Press both the power and home button until the device turns off. Now press the power button to restart your iPad. If the installation of iOS 7 was completed, it will boot normally, if it did not, it *should* pick up where it left off during installation and finish the process.

    Then you may have to plug it in and restore it. When did you last backup your device? If it was recent then, if iTunes fully restores your device (I'm not sure that it will), you can restore using your last backup.

    I've seen this before ... Unfortunately there is really no way out. Did you have your iPad jail broken prior to the update?
