I'd like to recycle iPad 1. How do I clean all personal info?
The battery is dead, I tried to recharge it for an hour.
open the ipad and smash the motherboard.
dissasembly instructions online at ifixit.com.
they can't recycle circuit boards anyway!
Be sure to use a 2.1amp/5V charger or the iPad won't recognize the charger at all..
My old original iPad is picky about its power supply, whereas the cube and computer only produce 1amp/5V and won't work for actual charging.
