    Need help with iPad mini not charging nor booting [6.0.1]

    Hi everyone,
    yesterday when I was trying to charge my iPad mini at around 14% battery left, it showed this icon: Need help with iPad mini not charging nor booting [6.0.1]-capture208.png
    which was very strange considering I only had 14% left and the text was in red.
    So I thought I would let it drain to 0% to let the battery indicator re-calibrate, and right now,
    I've been charging it since 2 hours ago and it is still showing the red battery icon,
    it is not booting up at all. I am trying to connect it to itunes but it is not letting me to do so since it doesnt have enough power.
    It is jailbroken so I don't know if I should bring it to the apple store to fix it...
    The only tweak I've installed after my last successful charge was auxo for ipad and messagebox.
    What can I do now? please help.

    Not seeing an issue with Auxo for iPad. Leave it charging on the outlet, see if another cable works. If you can get a small charge on it, see if you can put it in Safe Mode while booting. It might possibly be a hardware issue, if it is the case, you can get a replacement iPad Mini from Apple under your 1 year warranty

    You'll have to remove the jailbreak before taking the iPad to the Apple store for possible warranty service. Apple won't service a jailbroken iPad, as their position is that it voids the warranty.

    Okay I've charged it over night, I don't think it is charging AT ALL. The red battery icon isn't even showing up anymore.
    I tried removing the jailbreak by restoring but I cannot even connect the device to itunes without enough battery.
    Oh my god this is screwed up, I don't want to brick my ipad..

    I think the problem is charging. What charger are you using and what cable? Make sure you are using the appropriate Apple charger and cable. Don't connect it to a computer for charging.

    If you've tried different combinations of cables, outlets and adapters and its still not charging it most likely is a battery issue. If you're certain this is the case after trials, you won't have to worry about the restore as Apple will replace the device completely of serious enough. I'm not sure if the "fix on the spot" policy is up or not, but in either case, you'll get it fixed, either with a new battery or a new iPad altogether

    I've gone through all 5 of my apple outlets, none of them seem to work. I only have 1 lightning cable though, I'm not sure if it is the cable that is broken. I tried plugging it the other way it doesn't seem to work. Anyways I think I will stop by at Apple Genius Bar this weekend to let them have a look. Thanks everyone
