    So I have this IPad mini for over a few years now and so I think that my iPad is hacked cause once a while it show blue and then shows a bunch of numbers and letters with the iPad restart logo and once before going to eat it did that and it had highlighted a word that said something creepy but I don't remember if it was "we found you" or either "your stuck here" or something creepy and I passed it to my brother (in this case we parked at a restaurant) and he said "huh" and then "omg that's creepy" and that's when I decided to leave it off for a while 2 years... (forgot to mention I tried turning it off and I didn't work until I gave it to my brother he turned it off.) i decided today I'm gonna see and now I turned it on and it acted normal until it show like little lines and it was frozen and I tried to move it and turning it off and I did it but now it doesn't want to turn back on (I just hope this isn't a hacker that just waited 2 years just to crash it basically)

    If you think the device has been hacked or is malfunctioning, I recommend you put the device in DFU mode, connect it to your computer and then have iTunes install a fresh copy of iOS. After that, set it up as new and NOT from a backup. If you think the problem is hardware-related, make a Genius Bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store to have them diagnose the problem for you.
