I have a rootkit installed on my ipad two and iPhone 5 I have several pictures and log data to support my theorie. Someone please help. I tried to do a wipe and restore it won't let me. I'm not the most savvy person but I have spent about two weeks looking at viruses and code for them. What I came up with is a rootkit. Not sure which one. All I know is I don't have access to my ipad 2 or my iPhone 5. I have downloaded several applications from App Store and tried digging but I can't get to far. I do understand the iPhone has to be jailbroken in order to install a rootkit and I haven't dense so. But in my logs some of the info I found directly links to a jailbroken iPhone and ipad. Someone pled help me get control over my devices.

If the wipe-and-reset isn't working and if you've acquired and loaded software only from the App Store — that these iOS devices have not been jail-broken — then the most likely trigger would be a hardware problem.
However...
Having a double failure — both an iPhone and an iPad device effected — would be unusual — well, barring cases such as a power surge, water damage, or a nearby lightning strike, or such — which would imply that there's some other factor that's common here.
If there hasn't been some sort of common damage, then your OS X system and iTunes, or possibly a faulty USB cable, or a faulty USB port on the Mac, or (surprisingly common) a faulty USB hub, would all be obvious suspects.
As John Galt mentions, posting additional details will help.

You seem have convinced yourself that you have a rootkit installed somehow, but I suggest you post the logs, screenshots, and other data here so that others can corroborate your conclusion.
What do you mean by that?
Exactly what did you do, how did you do it, and what was the result?
