If the blobs are saved in Cydia that's good enough. Once you go to 6.1.3 you render them useless as there is no way back, so it's a moot point.
i have an ipad mini wifi running 6.0.2 currently and is jailbroken using evasi0n.
last night, i ran terminal command 'fmf' (findmissingfiles), discovered that i had 7/8 packages that were missing files.
the packages missing files were : com.fabius.utilsbase
the dpkg command to fix/replace these necessary files was not working so i carried on to manually re-install and replace these incomplete package files via cydia simply by finding the installed package and chosing re-install instead of removing.
all of this was going fine until i re-installed 'base'.
after completing the re-installation and waiting for my ipad to boot back up, it managed to get stuck on the apple logo screen.
i have done several things to try to attempt to fix this problem.
i've tried editing the 'hosts' file, to remove any lines or add a # to 'gs.apple.com'. my hosts file does not have gs.apple.com at all throughout it, so that was no good.
i tried navigating to and deleting DynamicLibraries and then rebooting the device, but that hasn't done anything.
i've tried updating/restoring my ipad to the latest software, but i keep getting an error message saying my device isn't eligible to receive the software due to a 3rd party software or adblock firewall.
i also SSH into my ipad from my macbook and manually removed any type of adblocking/firewall tweaks/apps.
when i put my device into DFU recovery mode and use tinyumbrella to try and boot out of it, my ipad is non responsive.
NOTHING AT ALL IS LETTING ME USE MY IPAD!
is there a way of unjailbreaking my ipad without restoring?
are there ANY other possible solutions, perhaps terminal command or through ifile to fix the massive problem i'm facing?
somebody please help me out! my ipad mini is only 3 weeks old! :(
greatly appreciated everyone!!
I think that the only way to get your iPad working again is to follow the tutorial in the first post in this thread. It will, unfortunately, leave you on iOS 6.1.3. Yu'll then have to wait until an iOS 7 jailbreak is released.

It it's a hardware failure, your only option for getting it working again is to have it repaired at a suitable repair shop.
I need your help. I've read through several posts, and may already know the answer to my question (restore to 6.1.3), but maybe someone here may be able to help.
I have an iPad 4 64Gb, on iOS 6.1 and jailbroken with Evasi0n.. my sister, frustrated with my iMessages coming through and beeping had decided to hold the on/off button and turned it off. Well, when I turned the iPad back on, I got the "restore" (plug into iTunes) graphic and it has been stuck there ever since. I have tried exiting restore using TinyUmbrella 6.14, and RecBoot 2.2 but neither have worked. I can get the iPad into DFU mode as well, and iTunes recognizes it in both states (DFU and Restore), but wants me to restore.
The thing is... I really don't want to upgrade to 6.1.3... I don't care about free apps etc, but have a ton of useful Cydia tweaks that I don't want to lose, and going back to non-enhanced iOS, and being locked there until the next 7.0 jailbreak will drive me bonkers... Not sure why turning the iPad off may have crashed the OS?
So, is there anything I may have missed for getting out of Restore? Any suggestions, and help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Edit: Just wanted to say that I have the SHSH saved for 6.1 in TinyUmbrella if that helps anything.
Try exiting recovery using redsn0w, rather than TU. I've seen that work when TU does not.
Thanks so much for your reply... I will give that a shot tonight. And if that doesn't work? ... I suppose I am running out of options huh?
A side rant... It pains me to say this, because I am a 12 year long Apple faithful, but Apple is starting to really tick me off with their tightening restrictions on their mobile devices... Fine, lock down unauthorized apps, but for Pete's sake ... let the people tweak! :)
If I did a botched recovery mode recover using stock iTunes 6.1.3 over top my rooted 6.1 can I download the 6.1 firmware and use this process to get back to a root able 6.1? The recover looked like it worked but it wouldn't activate and their was nothing to remove from my hosts file or any security turned on my pc.

iPad 4 model A1460 32gb CDMA + GSM (world)
Was rooted using evasi0n on 6.1 and running fine. Till one day it started crashing no matter what I eas doing. I tried removing recent package installs but had no luck. I eventually put it in recovery mode and took the default iTunes recover to 6.1.3 which appeared to work fine. Until the activation which wouldn't work. I tried all kinds of things after that pwnd dfu using snobreeze unofficial ipsw recovers etc. then I found this wonderful site with what looks to be the exact process and files I need only my pref would be to get back to 6.1 rooted. Sorry apple I love your product but I just have this thing about people controlling what I can and cannot do with my toys. Any help from the community here would be greatly appreciated.
