    Problems with Cydia and cannot re-jailbreak due to Recoverguard

    I'm running 5.1.1 on an ipad 2 and for some reason Cydia cannot download any packages, install, or search any programs. It starts up fine, but doesn't show any packages installed, doesn't show any changes, doesn't show any installed programs, and returns no results when I search for programs. It doesn't give any error messages, just doesn't return any results. It also gives errors when updating database on packages that I have removed.

    So I was going to use absinthe to re-jailbreak, but I installed Recoverguard when Cydia was working and of course I cannot un-install it because Cydia does not show it as installed. My iOS version is 5.1.1 (9z999) so absinthe cannot jailbreak it.

    Anyone know how I can proceed to fix this? Maybe somehow re-install Cydia, do a full restore (although I don't know how that will go since iOS shows a version of 9z999)? I have saved shsh from tinyumbrella 5.1.1

    It sounds like something fundamental has gone wrong, so, since you say you have 5.1.1 blobs saved, the best thing you can do in your situation is to re-restore 5.1.1 and jailbreak with Absinthe or redsn0w again. Follow our tutorial guide here - TUTORIAL - Re-restore IOS 5.x on iPad2 and iPad3 using redsn0w and SHSH Blobs

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the linkf4780y. I assume that everything gets wiped and I have to re-install the apps (although if I have backup up with iTunes maybe it will install all the apps other than the ones I installed with Cydia)?

    Yes, you can choose to restore your backup at the end of the process.

    I am trying to follow the tutorial, but after I do step 6 I get the following pop up messages. After the first message pops up I select the file "iPad2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw" which I downloaded from the tutorial page. Once I do that, the second pop up shows with the error. The last picture shows the blobs options are greyed out.

    I'm thinking it may have something to do with the version of 5.1.1 (9Z999)?

    Perhaps I should use redsnOw and re-jailbreak it (that way it may re-install cydia which is all I really need to fix)?

    Your build doesn't match. The re-restore feature would reflect the build type. The only clean and simple way to get you back to 5.1.1, would be to upgrade to 6.1.3 and downgrade back to 5.1.1. Again, as the sticky that f4780y has already pointed out, you'll need iOS 4.x blobs and iOS 5.X blobs.

    OK, I can do that as I do have the iOS 4.x blobs and iOS 5.X blobs.

    But what about just using redsnOw to re-jailbreak it, would that work to get me Cydia working again (or because I'm on 9z999 would it cause problems)?

    If I was to upgrade, how do I do that since iTunes thinks I'm on the latest version because I installed Recoverguard?

    DFU restore should get rid of RecoverGuard. That's the one thing about RecoverGuard, is that it implements a hard change in your device's profiling, so you'll have to manually get rid of it.

    You can't rejailbreak a device since it's already jailbroken. You can re-install Cydia using MobileTerminal or possibly iFunBox but you probably still get some issues with it unless you completely remove Cydia off your device first.

    OK, thanks I'll try the DFU restore and go from there. When I do this will it keep my apps (other than cydia ones), or does it erase them?

    Also, do I use iTunes for the DFU restore, and restore the firmware I already have on the ipad, 5.1.1?

    Restoring will always wipe your device. You can't re-restore using iTunes, it'll have to be RedSn0w because it takes advantage of a restore vulnerability. You'll have to restore to the latest iOS, then downgrade. But that's only if you have both iOS 4 and iOS 5 blobs. Otherwise, your only option for restoring would be 6.1.3.

    The point of restoring to 6.1.3 then downgrading is to be able restore your device back to an iOS with a functional build, which is the current problem that we have at our hands
