    I ran my iPad down till it powered of done it before but when I plugged it in to charge it's text was as the bottom side of the screen. It then all went blank but screen was lit. Did a hard reset and it booted up fine at least for now. Any ideas of what happened.

    Sorry about the bad pic but I was using a magnifying app so I could read the small print and then had to take a pic of my phone screen.

    I don't know what's happened in your case but I do know I've had a few little incidents with my ipad on ios 6. Just little glitches and freezes, odd behaviour here and there. Things that are strange and never seem to repeat. Hopefully ios 7 will fix.

    Is it jailbroken? It does that when it's in verbose or single user mode, which is used for troubleshooting or modifying the firmware. We often see text like that during the jailbreak process. It shouldn't appear at any other times, but it sounds like it was just a glitch and I wouldn't worry about it since it's running fine now. If it occurs again and fails to boot, the fix would be to attempt a restore, so just make sure you keep it backed up.

    I think sometimes it really happens on Jailbroken Apple devices and even on Android phones that are rooted. My cousin also experience this sometimes with his iPad.
