So I'm getting really frustrated here, ready to shatter this thing into pieces.
I am still on a pre iOS 5 version and have not really ever updated since I got my iPad a year and a half ago. I am now starting to realize that there are apps I can't use without finally doing this.
So the only way I can is through iTunes on my PC. I go to do this, and every time I try(after sitting through the backup process every single fucking attempt) I get a message saying it can't be restored with an error code of 3014.
I get this same error if I try to just restore the iPad to factory settings and update that way.
I've googled this error and tried a bunch of solutions and nothing works. iTunes is updated. No firewalls or other security is in the way. There's enough room on my hard drive. There was some fix to go int a windows host file that I tried but the line of code I was supposed to delete didn't exist. I've tried updating whole in DFU mode.
I don't know what to do. I'm getting pretty pissed off as I've wasted hours of my time in this with no progress. Why the fuck is this so difficult?
