iOS 8.1 update--??

okay so i updated my ipad to iOS 8.1 over the wifi update, but now after it restarted once it finished installing, my ipad wont turn on unless i connect it to itunes via a computer(shows only the white charger plug with the itunes symbol). I thought gone were the days of having to manually sync it using a computer...previous updates always got done wirelessly, so why is this happening??? Oh fyi, i have no PC, laptop etc...only my ipad,which makes it a bit annoying now that i have to go in search for a pc to connect my ipad to to actually use it, and its been 3 days and no ipad so far....grrrrrrr!!!!!!
