    I tried to backup my jailbroken iPad in itunes last night - it failed and had device time out errors. (note it has worked before - about a month ago).

    I left it over night and it still didnt complete.

    I clicked the eject button in itunes, unplugged my iPad and then plugged it back in, it asked me if i wanted to restore or setup a new iPad!

    When i try launching any app that is not a built-in app it starts and then instantly exits the app.

    Apps like contacts and mail are ok.

    Any ideas or is this reset land?

    Hope you didn't update to itunes 9.2. The update came out the other night and could have messed up your ****.

    Not sure, good luck though. Maybe try figuring out how to downgrade itunes and then restore to an iPad backup.

    Luckily i have a laptop with itunes 9.1 on it that has nevered synced with an iDevice.

    Doing a sync on that machine has apparently fixed the issue. I didn't need to restore or reset. It is amazing to me a problem during sync could make an ipad unuseable (the device time out issue i was getting i suspect was the issue!)

    I did a sync on a different 9.2 (windows) machine and everything is ok; go figure.
