    Ad Blocker?

    From the looks of it so far, I don't believe you can add specific host sources to iOS 9 adblocking based on beta testing several adblockers. Hopefully the API is expanded to include that option as opposed to specifically blocking ads one at a time or generalizing all elements given a certain...

    Restoring without losing jailbreak

    I'd boot into No Substrate mode to see if it's a tweak compatibility issue, that way you can narrow down which tweak it is prior to a pseudo factory reset as Marilyn pointed out above so that you won't end up installing the tweak again and repeating the same scenario

    Should I get an iPad?

    Overall I use my iPad for 4 things mainly, moderate gaming (such as Hearthstone, Clash of Clans, Fallout Shelter, and The Walking Dead, games that are light enough that they don't turn the iPad into a heatsink after a while), reading eBooks using iBooks, streaming my media using XBMC to my...

    Jailbreak restore problem

    Welcome to iPadForums. DFU restore your device. Simply restoring using the iTunes restore button without entering DFU mode generally causes issues during the restore process, usually resulting in errors at the beginning of the restore as opposed to the end of restoration process which it seems...

    How to Jailbreak iOS 8.x Using TaiG

    Bit of an update for those that're just restoring to 8.4 and looking to jailbreak. TaiG released a Mac utility a few weeks back which a lot of users aren't aware of. Here's the TaiG source link, or a MEGA link here of the same utility hosted by me if your connection to their host server is slow...

    PP Jailbreak getting stuck at 5/8

    There's actually a Mac utility by Taig here. Since PP got the job done, I'll just leave it here for others with the same question

    PP Jailbreak getting stuck at 5/8

    Why not use TaiG instead? Cleaner execution than PP considering they're the original.

    8.4.1 Jailbreak possible ?

    Not possible. Apple patched 4 exploits that TaiG used. Only a matter of time though, but I'd say they'd rather save it for an iOS 9 jailbreak which be coming relatively soon, though it's hard to tell considering how competitive the scene is and whether or not you have a whole PP debacle again.

    iPad 2 custom grid tweak - help required

    I prefer Iconoclasm generally speaking. Then again, it's user preference on the appearance you're trying to achieve. I scale down my icons and remove the labeling for my icons, then I kind of scrunch them up a little bit for a more dense view. Generally if you want to keep the same layout in...

    Whatsapp on ipad air 2

    Jailbreaking enhances the stock capabilities of iOS and does not detract from it. The stigma that jailbreaking has is that it opens up the availability of accessing your device using SSH/FTP openly, but the security can be beefed by changing your SSH password, or toggling SSH when not in use. In...

    iOS 8.x Jailbreak Status

    iOS 8.1.3 has been released (7.0.3 for AppleTV). This update patches the TaiG and PP exploits for the iOS 8.0 - 8.1.2 jailbreak. Users should install OpenSSH and Apple Conduit File 2 if they haven't already to troubleshoot issues on currently jailbroken devices so not to be forced to the latest...

    Need help restoring my ipad 1

    It's best to keep this discussion on either iPhoneForums or iPadForums, since you're posting the same issue and results/discussion on both ends, there'll be a lot of confusion going back and forth to resolve the same issue.

    iOS 8.x Jailbreak Status

    It's selectively, not a universal fix.

    iOS 8.x Jailbreak Status

    The driving force of iOS 8.1.1 upgrades was for a wifi fix, which wasn't implemented for all devices since majority of users still experience the wifi issue with 8.1.1 among other things, so even with it jailbroken, it's no different from jailbreaking iOS 8.1. And because 8.1 is still being...
