    You cannot ever update or restore a jailbroken iPad without access to a PC, just like you cannot jailbreak and iPad2 or iPad3 it in the first place without one. They are pretty essential.

    Your best bet is to borrow someone else's PC for 30 minutes. All they need is the latest iTunes installed. Nothing else. You won't mess up their setup in any way if you follow the guide posted above.

    I just want to get the hell out of safe mode nothing more.

    Well nobody is forcing you to jailbreak. If don't think the enhancements jailbreaking provides are of value, then simply don't do it. Use a stock device like the tens of millions of other satisfied iPad owners out there an leave us jailbreakers to it

    But you stated in your first post, that removing tweaks was not an option either. You can't have it all ways

    The only way to get out of safe mode is to find out which tweak is causing the problem and remove it. Usually you do this by removing the last things which were installed / updated via Cydia. If you post the details of the tweak you have installed we will see if we can help identify what the problem might be. OK?

    Actually this isn't because of the tweak but, its that I tried to format my iPad. I don't care of Formating or updating my iPad at the moment now, I just want to go out of this safe mode.

    OK, that's My Bad for not reading the first post properly, but this is where we will go round in circles. Unfortunately, it is fairly well documented that you should never use the "Reset" options on a jailbroken device, since they are coded for a stock OS. You have likely corrupted a core part of the jailbreak, and using a PC is the only way to fix it. Without one you are not going to be able to recover it to a working state IMHO. Sorry.

    Best thing you can probably do until you get access to a PC is to reboot the iPad and hold down the Volume Up key whilst it boots. This will put it into a full safe mode (without the nag screen). You will have no jailbreak features, but you should be able to use the rest of the device as normal.

    Hell, not working. I guess I will have to empty the iPad and give it to my dad with instructions so he fix the problem, update and jailbreak my iPad but that will be a little hard. well that's it. Thank you guys for the support and I wish I have a conversation with you again. Especially you f4780y.

    Hope you get it fixed.

    It really does just need 30 minutes on a PC. Don't you know anyone with a PC or Laptop that has iTunes installed that you can borrow for 30 mins?
