I had something to do with pirating beta firmware.
I have to remind everyone that you cannot pirate iOS 5 for iPad 2, for lack of a jailbreak to install pirated beta software. The only unreleased OS that you can pirate successfully for the iPad 2 is iOS 5 GM, which is indistinguishable (most likely) from the final build, and thereby should not cause purple screens. Your purple screening problem is most likely a hardware problem, unless there's something I've overlooked.
I believe that there was a way where you can screw up the install and have a purple screen but I think you can restore and fix it. That's why I said to restore. Not 100% sure though. It's all a fuzzy memory.
EDIT: Just re-read it and I missed the part he said he shook it and it turned on. Now I feel stupid Please Register or Log in to view images
Never heard of it in this case then. Although this is almost sure to be hardware if shaking truly fixed the problem once before.
