So all went well initially. Sorted out my iPad and iPhone4 with their brand-spanking new software last night and went about my day today.
Happy to see multitasking on my iPad and a snazzy new noise when I receive text messages that makes me feel like a detective in a fifties movie.
However, disaster struck this evening. my iPad couldn’t connect to WiFi.
It believed it could, and for all intents and purposes it appeared it could but I was continually being met with error messages.
After a dig around what google could offer and after attempting the many different different and peculiar ‘solutions’ (turn this off, turn that off, count to ten, pace five times, make a wish, but it a chocolate drink, etc) I was met with absolutely no joy.
So I figured I’d restore it. Lo’ and Behold, one hour later I have realised that apps that you download do not get included in a back-up if you choose not to sync them.
So now I have also lost this data too as the previous back-up has now been wiped. Hurrah! (not)
I am now sitting here with my iPad, now downgraded to 3.2.2 with all my apps back on, but with none of the saved data.
I have lost my completed Angry Birds and Cut The Rope, as well as all the comics in my Comic Zeal, etc, etc.
I think it’s safe to say I may have learned my lesson.
Next time I’ll hold fire for 24 hours before jumping in with a build, even if it is GM.
Now excuse me, I have ropes to cut and pigs to slay..
