The best solution we have for fixing a broken iPad is to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at your nearest Apple Store. you will not need your receipt as they can look up all relevant info at the store. They will most probably offer to replace your iPad but for a cost. it's normally half of the original cost of the iPad. If this is fine by you, make sure you do a complete backup of your iPad before you go.

There are other businesses that can do this for you which will probably be cheaper but be aware that this will void your warranty, but then again your warranty would already be voided because of the drop. If you do replace with Apple, your warranty is reinstated. I have also heard many members who have gone the cheaper route then find that their WiFi will not work as this has been damaged by the replacing of the screen.

In addition, you can also contact Apple customer service. Here are some great web sites to aid you in your repair search:

How to hack an iPad passcode: Restore your iPad using Recovery Mode

Re storing an iPad and starting again is the best way to recover an iPad if you don’t have the passcode. It removes your personal information the iPad. But if you have a backup you can restore it and it’ll be as good as new (but without the passcode).

Trying to Restore the iPad from iTunes requires a passcode, but you can restore the iPad from Recovery Mode. This wipes the iPad completely and installs the latest version of iOS from scratch.

Note: You will need to possess the Apple ID and password that was used to originally set up the device.

Charge the iPad up to at least 20 per cent.

Ensure that the iPad to a Mac or PC is not connected to the Mac or PC.

Open iTunes on your Mac (or PC).

Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and use the Slide To Power Off to turn off the iPhone.

Hold down the Home Button.

With The Home button held down attach the Lightning Cable to the iPad.

The iPad should power up in Recover Mode. The screen should display a blue iTunes logo and a white Lightning Cable. iTunes should display a message saying “iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be used with iTunes”.

Enter the Apple ID and Password that was used to set up the iPad.

Click Continue.

Choose Restore From This Backup to restore the iPad to its earlier state Or you can set up the iPad as a fresh model by choosing Set Up As New iPad.

Click Continue.

Your iPad will now be up and running as before but without a passcode.

How to hack an iPad passcode: use forensics software

Every so often a technique pops up that somebody enables to bypass the Apple Passcode. This is sometimes a finger-tapping trick that enables the person to access something on the phone locked down. Typically either Contacts or Messages. This isn’t hacking the passcode, it’s merely bypassing it.

Forget the finger tricks you’ll see in YouTube videos. It is possible to hack the iPad passcode, but you need serious software to do so. This is known as forensics software because law enforcement agencies use them when analysing a mobile phone. We tested Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit and found it a reliable means of cracking an iPad’s passcode. The software is not available to the general public and you will need to apply for a license (and show your credentials). Here are the Mac forensic tools available on the market:

Software tools like this can enable you to extract a passcode from an iOS device. You’ll need to be good with computers (at least capable of handling yourself using the Command Line in Terminal).
