    Hello I have an ipad 2 wifi with iOS 7.1.2 jailbroken and am trying to update to latest ios 8.1
    Every time I update via iTunes it fails on download saying error 9006 make sure your settings are correct and your network settings are active.
    I have turned off avg but still won't work.
    Also trying to update via the ipad itself will not work.
    Please help ?

    You say you are trying to update to iOS 8.1 and that is where your issue is. Apple has stopped signing iOS 8.1 and now the only iOS you can upgrade to is iOS 8.1.1.

    So, try using that iOS and see how that works for you. Good luck and holler back if you need more.

    P.S. And, since you talk about a jail broken device, I've taken the liberty of moving your post over to the Hacking section. Thanks for your understanding.

    My bad. I didn't see the part where you were trying to have iTunes do the download. So, it sounds as if you'll have to install the iOS 8.1.1 manually.

    So, go to this forum link and download the IPSW file for iOS 8.1.1 (make sure to get the correct file for your version of iPad): http://www.ipadforums.net/threads/official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-for-ipad.24939/

    Once you have the file, follow the steps outlined here: http://www.ipadforums.net/threads/t...-to-restore-the-current-version-of-ios.52863/

    Hopefully, that will sort it out for you.

    If you're getting that error message, you've used the wrong update file for your iPad. Are you sure you chose an iOS 8.1.1 update file and not an iOS 8.1 file? Only the iOS 8.1.1 update file for your iPad 2 model will work. You'll get the error message if you try to use any other version.

    There are two versions for the Wi-Fi only iPad 2: Wi-Fi only Hardware revision A, and Wi-Fi only. I just want to make sure that you downloaded the right one.
