      If you forgot the passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled
      Follow these steps if you’ve forgotten your passcode, or if a message says that your device is disabled.
      Put the iPad into Recovery Mode and then try the Restore again:

      If that still doesn’t work, as a last resort try DFU mode:

      Thank you for the link on how to get into Recovery Mode. That was the missing part of the puzzle. It looks like it’s doing the restore.

      If you’ve synced with iTunes, use these steps.
      If you’re signed in to iCloud and Find My iPhone is enabled, use these steps.
      If you don’t use iCloud and you can’t sync or connect with iTunes, use recovery mode.

      If you’ve synced your device with iTunes, you can restore your device.
      Connect your device to the computer you synced with.
      Open iTunes. If asked for a passcode, try another computer you’ve synced with, or use recovery mode.
      Wait for iTunes to sync your device and make a backup. If it doesn’t, learn what to do.
      Once the sync and backup have finished,click Restore [your device].

      When you reach the Set Up screen while restoring your iOS device, tap Restore from iTunes backup.
      Select your device in iTunes. Look at the date and size of each backup and pick the most relevant one.

      Erase using Find my iPhone
      If you set up Find My iPhone on your iOS device or Mac, you can use iCloud to erase and restore it.
      From another device, go to icloud.com/find.
      If prompted, sign in with your Apple ID.
      Click All Devices at the top of your browser window.
      Select the device you want to erase.
      Click Erase [device] to erase your device and its passcode.
      Now you can either restore from a backup or set up as new.
      If your device isn’t connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network, you can’t erase it with Find My iPhone.

      Restore using recovery mode
      If you’ve never synced with iTunes or set up Find My iPhone in iCloud, you’ll need to use recovery mode to restore your device. This will erase the device and its passcode.
      Connect your iOS device to your computer and open iTunes. If you don’t have a computer, borrow one from a friend, or go to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider.
      While your device is connected, force restart it: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don’t let go when you see the Apple logo — keep holding until you see the recovery mode screen.

      When you see the option to Restore or Update, choose Restore.

      iTunes will download software for your device. If it takes more than 15 minutes, your device will exit recovery mode and you’ll need to repeat steps 2 and 3.

      Wait for the process to finish. Then you can set up and use your device.

      If you forget your iPad’s passcode, you won’t be able to access your files and you will need to reset the device by putting it in recovery mode. Recovery Mode is also useful if you want to erase the iPad’s settings or troubleshoot a problem with the device. If you’ve never synced with iTunes or set up Find My iPhone in iCloud, you’ll need to use recovery mode to restore your device. This will erase the device and its passcode.

      Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:

      2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
      3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
      4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
      5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
      6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
      7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
      8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just canceling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
