i just fixed someone iPad and all i had to do was follow the directions on the apple site. plug it in and restore..... the only difference is the last step:!!!** it worked after 3 attempted restores in a row. (when the apple help forum says "if it doesn't work, repeat steps 2 and 3 they mean it) so don't give up. you'll notice, each time it incrementally gets faster and will eventually finish the factory restore. I found this out from a response on this thread or another site, they said "just wait for it to complete". it worked for me, and now I have factory restored iPad that was previously disabled/error 9/frozen at restore. i did not have to download any third party software or buy anything. try this first, it'll save you time, money, and grief.
