    Hi all.
    Having a worrying time at the moment with my ipad.
    I'm on a camping trip with no PC. I was watching a tv show via my hd through a wireless router to my ipad using xbmc when the screen blacked out only playing sound, this is ok for my music but this the first time it's ever happened in the 3 years jailbroken.
    I reset the ipad all ok for an hour browsing safari then the screen flickered around the edges threw some lines up, froze and went to showing 1/4 of the screen, done a hard reset holding both home and off button, worked for an hour or so and then the out side of the screen slowly goes black the rest dims and freezes, I sometimes can not come out of this by resetting 3,4 times I have to leave it alone for an hour or so then it will be fine but can go back to freezing within 5 minutes.
    I'm dreading doing a restore and losing my jailbreak. Wondering if any of you guys can help at all.
    I've not added any cydia tweeks for ages but have removed a few just incase.
    Removed any apps I have added over past couple of months
    I've Run icleaner.
    I've drained battery twice.
    Killed all apps running.
    Soft reset with the slider when able to
    Hard reset umpteen times.
    Is there any thing else I can try one of you wonderful people might know of?
    Many thanks in advance
    P.s. Running IOS 7.0.4

    I have 6nr xxxxx.panic.plist. Files in diagnotics for past 2 days

    Many thanks natthewife, I didn't think they'd be one until next ios. Just had a nose at the new one, back home tomorrow will try that as a fix. Fingers crossed

    Hi Superfandango. I'm pretty sure from what you are describing that you have developed a hardware fault and this is nothing at all to do with jailbreaking, IOS, or any of the software on your device.
    It could be a dry joint / solder point or the ribbon cable could be working loose. Temperature is possibly playing a factor from your description of the problem (leaving the device off for a while, returning to it, and then the fault occurring again after a bit of use is a sure sign of this).
    I honestly wouldn't waste too much time restoring over and over. You may want to seek out a repair service in your area... Sorry my feedback isn't more positive :(

    If you have not already done so, do a backup of your iPad before taking it to the repair shop. This way, if your iPad cannot be repaired, you can use that backup to set up a replacement iPad.
