Hi, I am trying to update an ipad 2 from 4.3.3 to 6.1.3, but it wont do it, I have even tried in recovery mode but with no joy, it always stops when it is proccessing the update file. Any ideas please? I am using a mac to update. Thanks

First, do you really need to update it? It will be a lot faster running iOS 4 than 6.

Can you try downloading the update again? Can you use a different Mac/PC?

Will try a different computer but will I need to back it up again as that took an age to do! Its the mother in laws and she needs it updating to get some games she wants

Tried bypassing the Mac altogether and doing it over the air, plugged in and with wifi connected? (Assuming you can do major updates OTA, which I'm not certain of.)
