    I'm (iPad 4) Jailbreak on 8.1 with the latest Pangu. Every once in a while the iPad crashes, such as a darker non-responsive (slide to unlock does not work) screen. I then hard reset. When the iPad comes up, I am still on my WIFI, but without bars. I then check and I have a 169 (private)...

    Getting Music of a non-jailbroken iPad

    I'm not posing this in the hacking section because the iPad in question is not jailbroken. Mode, feel free to move this if it appropriate. Also, the music that I am talking about was purchased legitimately—I am not condoning pirating. On my non-jailbroken iPad, I have music that I got from...

    My Jailbroken iPad is vulnerable to the shellshock exploit.

    Not sure if this belongs in the hacking section - Mods, feel free to move this somewhere else more appropriate: On my iPad 4 Jailbroken on IOS 7.0.4, It appears that the system is vulnerable to the shellshock exploit. When SSHing into a terminal session, this command: env x='() { :;}; echo...

    Some questions

    Tim Cooke described that the iWatch can use Wifi shared from an iPhone. Does that mean that is does not have built in WIFI? Also, can it use WIFI from an iPad? Does it have an audio file player? If so, can one use a Bluetooth headset with it? How much file storage does it have?

    Why doesn't the arrow go away?

    Take a look: It is my understanding that the arrow to the left of the bluetooth "on" indicator, means that location services are being used. The problem is that for the last week or so, it doesn't go away, even when WIFI and Cellar are off. What does this mean? Why doesn't the arrow ever...

    How did Wallpaper JPEGifier get installed?

    I'm jailbroken on whatever tool I used to JB 7.0.4 which I remain on. I am looking at the settings and see options for Wallpaper JPEGifier. I didn't deliberately instal this. Does it come with Cydia or the new mobile substrate update which I just installed?

    ZAGG ZAGGfolioo Review and a question

    On my current ZAGG ZAGGfolio Bluetooth Keyboard/case/stand for my iPad 4, I just noticed that the third key fell off for no reason at all and other keys are far too loose, so (with this in mind and the other problems that I mention later in this post) it is time for a new Bluetooth Keyboard...

    Getting Music onto My Ipad without iTunes

    I am talking about M4V and MP3 files—YES, I did purchase them legitimately. I hate iTunes and since I am jailbroken I am hoping I can just SSH the files into a directory and take another step or 2. Please don't suggest the Amazon Cloud player. The player has an annoying bug: When playing...

    Help with sending mail with slow cellular connections

    I've been in areas with no wifi and only a slow AT&T Edge (1G I believe) signal and I needed to send out an important email. Simple text does not take up a lot of bandwidth, BUT, as soon as I open the "mail" app, it starts downloading tons of stuff and I can't get the email out in a reasonable...

    Who can I contact to get VLC updated in the Cydia Store?

    When will sbsettings be updated to work with the new Jailbreak

    On my Ipad (iPad 4 64 Gig wifi + AT&T 4G), I installed sbsettings, but it doesn't work. As soon as I swipe across the top left of the screen, the iPad crashes into Mobile Substrate (I updated it to the new version) safe mode. I had to uninstall it as well as activator. When will it be activated?

    I jailbroke!

    I jailbroke my iPad 4 64 Gig Wifi + 3G with evasi0n7-win-1.0.2. I had upgraded to IOS 7.04 OTA and didn't have any problems with the J.B. I didn't restore to factory settings first. At first I was upset because Cydia was locked in portrait mode, but as soon as I updated some stuff and...

    Cloud restore question

    I am on 7.0.4. I am aware about the controversies regarding the latest jailbreak and am not going to J.B. now, but do have a question about it: If I restore to factory settings, then jailbreak, then restore from my last iCloud backup, will the restore undo the jailbreak? Thanks

    What is taking up my Icloud Storage Space?

    My Photos and Camera only take up 2.7 Gig, yet after my last Icloud backup, I only have 53.5 gig free for Icloud Backup. What is taking up all of the space? My notes can't be more than a few meg; probably much smaller. I don't think Cloud space is used for Apps, since those are on the store...

    IOS updates NEVER work for me - Why?

    Maybe this belongs in the "hacking" section, as I am always jailbroken when I try to upgrade: When I try to upgrade to the latest IOS, either via wifi or via iTunes on my PC, it never works - I don't remember the error messages, but the iPad always ends up in "recovery mode," which forces me to...

    Reading e-Books kills my battery life

    With my iPad 4 (64 Gig wifi + AT&T 3G) I normally get close to the advertised ten hours of battery life with a full charge, whether I am browsing or playing games. However, if I read on the Kindle app, or the iBooks app, or the Nook app, or the Kobo app, my battery drains like crazy. If I only...

    Can I restore to 6.1.2
