    You need to get back to Cydia to uninstall that color keyboard tweak that started your troubles. Do you have SBSettings installed? If so, see if you can get into Safe Mode, which may stop the iPad from rebooting long enough to get to Cydia and remove that tweak.

    If you can't remove that tweak, you'll have to restore. If you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3, then you can put that iOS back on. Otherwise, you'll have to go to iOS 5.0.1, which will remove your jailbreak, sorry.

    But, try getting back to Cydia first. Good luck.

    Hi mate

    I had the same sort of problem. I re-installed Cydia and lost my installed applications list. I then needed to restore to factory settings. I'm on 4.3.3 and being as I had my shsh blobs saved via sauriks server I was able to restore successfully and easily. Do you have your blobs for your iPad?

    If you open Cydia and look at the top it of the screen it will tell you the firmwares that saurik has saved on his servers for you.

    I was struggling for weeks with this because I could see that they were saved but whenever I ran tiny umbrella it never found my 4.3.3 blobs. I was certain they had to be around as it said so in Cydia. So I found an application that you can install via Cydia called SH**** this pulled my 4.3.3 blobs from sauriks servers and voila. I was able to reinstall 4.3.3 a d re-jailbreak via www.jailbreakme.com

    Let us know how you get on.
