    iOS 8 is now Installed on 60% of iPhones and iPads

    I'm still doing my bit for the "5%" (see signature) ! ;)

    Any solution to memory dissapearing?

    Best bet is to give us a list of all the JB tweaks you have installed. It is bound to be one (or more) of those...

    Is Passcode On Required

    To answer the OP's original question, it is NOT absolutely necessary that you have a passcode. It is simply personal choice, and as you have heard, the recommendation of most users is to have a passcode set. You may also want to look at the option under Settings > Passcode > Require Passcode...

    Password pilot not saving password

    I don't believe Password Pilot is working on 8.1.x yet. It certainly wasn't working on 8.1.1 the last time I checked, but to be honest, with TouchID on the Air2, I personally don't have any need for this tweak any more... Sorry.

    Be gone, ye foul stock icons! Pretty please?

    Hi Coffeeboy. Apologies as I am late to the party (was enjoying New Year parties IRL!). You might like to try something like "MIUI 6 for iOS8" - $1.99 on Cydia, which is fully iPad compatible. See below...

    Screen flickering, freezing, and acting all strange

    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...

    Jailbreak iPad 4 7.1.1 error?

    It's not unusual for iPad's to be locked in the UK when bought direct from a carrier such as Vodafone, or via a highstreet phone shop. I have one locked to Orange / EE. krs360 - You no doubt got the iPad significantly cheaper than retail in return for the commitment to the carrier contract. The...

    Notability App Data Lost after upgrade/restore of Jailbroken iPad 2, HELP!

    Notability syncs with several cloud services including Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc. Personally, I store my notes on my Dropbox. You didn't have a similar setup, did you? If so, your notes are likely on the cloud storage platform you used, and not in your backup. Overall, the problem...

    TUTORIAL - Re-restore IOS 5.x on iPad2 and iPad3 using redsn0w and SHSH Blobs

    This is an internet forum, and I'm sorry you feel the need to criticise the current accuracy of a post that I created over a year ago, and worked perfectly well for many months and for countless re-restores, and is still perfectly valid for non-cellular devices. It isn't possible on a forum...

    HOW TO - Resolve iTunes Unknown Error 3194

    Yes. You simply cannot update your iPad to 6.1.1 or 6.1.2 now. You either need to stay on 5.1.1 or move to 7.0.x without a jailbreak.

    Official IOS6 Jailbreak Status Thread

    There is almost zero chance that you will purchase any new iPad4 device today and find that it has a jailbreakable version of IOS on it. Yes, of course if you find one with 6.1.2 on it you can jailbreak it, but the chances of that are slim. You would have to find one that had been sitting on a...

    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    Error3 is usually a synchronisation error, and nothing to do with a restore. Since you are trying to install IOS7 are you SURE you are using the latest versions of everything? You must be on the latest iTunes to install 7 flawlessly. To be honest, you really shouldn't need to follow this...

    iPad in recovery mode - Need to recover data

    Sorry, but if you didn't take a recent backup of the device, either via iTunes or iCloud, before you attempted the update then there isn't much that can be done. The only solution I've seen work once was actually jailbreaking the device. Since you don't say what device you have or what version...

    Force orientation on specific apps?

    No there isn't. Since you have to physically turn the device around in order to hold it a different way, what's the problem letting the iPad change the orientation itself? Are you sure you don't have orientation lock set on by accident? Or of not, maybe you would be better setting the side...

    Downgrade Apple TV 3 5.1.1 to 5.0.2??

    The answer to all 3 of your questions is the same, and that's a "No", sorry :(

    Location hacking

    The paid tweak "Location Spoofer" allows you to spoof your device's location. It's $1.99 from Cydia.

    if i root my ipad mini is there a way to get it to run flash player media?

    No, it's not possible. Sorry :( Everything that can be done on a Mini in terms of using Flash content can be done on a stock device via browser apps like Puffin.

    iPad 1st Gen Error 3194

    Marilyn is absolutely right, and since 5.1.1 is easily jailbreakable and a more stable IOS for the iPad1 than the 5.0.x line, then you should be restoring that. The trick isn't simply "trying everything", but doing everything that needs to be done in the right order. We have a great guide here...

    Please help ASAP

    redsn0w supports the iPad2 just fine. It's IOS 6.1.3 that cannot be jailbroken, as scifan57 pointed out to you. Please see our thread here which explains what can and cannot be done -

    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If you have tried everything in this post then it sounds like a hardware fault, and the only thing you can do is take it back to Apple to see about a repair. Sorry :(

    Error - The iPad "iPad" could not be restored. Error -1 from iTunes.

    If you followed all the steps in the tutorial I published a few posts back, then I'm sorry, but you have pretty much exhausted everything you can do yourself to fix it. :(

    Stuck in recovery mode

    Sorry, but it simply isn't possible. No matter how you try to "crash your device". IOS 6.1.2 cannot be restored onto an iPad as things stand today. SHSH Blobs, and no amount of hacking will help. Trust us. All restores are protected by a secure digital signature which cannot be spoofed or...

    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    Marilyn's advice above is absolutely valid, but Error 14 is more often than not an issue with your USB / cable, so make sure you have followed all the advice in the guide about trying different ports, cables, etc., don't use a hub, and if possible try a different PC! Oh, and make sure you...

    Apple Store disappeared from jailbroken iPad 1

    Sounds like something has gone wrong. Since you have an iPad1 and 5.1.1 is the last version of IOS for that device, you are perfectly safe preforming a restore and re-jailbreak. You cannot lose your jailbreak capabilities on the iPad1. Just make sure you back up any data or information you need...

    Volume buttons causing iPhone to wake

    Glad to hear you got it fixed. When a tweak is going through almost daily updates from the developer, it is always worth checking again, because they are often correcting bugs which have crept in around their new features ;) Sounds like that's what was happening with you.

    Volume buttons causing iPhone to wake

    It sounds like Activator to me, an that has had a LOT of updates recently. It is worth going into the settings of Activator and resetting all your actions to default "just in case". I've seen this sort of thing happen before.

    Stuck in recovery mode

    If redsn0w or TinyUmbrella don't work when you try to exit from recovery mode, then this usually indicates that a portion of the file system has become corrupt and there isn't much that you can do about it I'm afraid. If you have iLEX RAT and SSH active on the device you can try using that, but...

    Ipad broken

    I'm not sure how to answer, other than with the obvious suggestion: "fix it" ;)

    My jailbroken ipad doesn't make purchases!

    A jailbroken device should not behave any differently to a stock device in terms of using the store and purchasing / downloading apps. You have most likely installed a Cydia tweak which is 1) not designed for the iPad, and 2) alters the default behaviour of the app store. There are, for...

    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    This indicates that a portion of the OS has become corrupted, and normally that means you are forced to restore. Safe mode won't allow you to bypass the recovery loop, and if TU and redsn0w can't exit then it means the corruption cannot be fixed by these tools. Sorry, but it sound like a restore...

    Erasing content and settings

    No, you should never use that option on a jailbroken device. You have 2 options. If you want to keep the ability to be able to jailbreak on the iPad2, you probably should look into iLex RAT. It has an option (Number 12) which will do something similar to Erase All Content and Setting, but it...

    Which version of iOS are you running?

    Help! I cannot answer this poll... I am running a version of every OS from 3.1.3 to 7b2, but 4.x, 5.x and 6.x specifically on my iPads! ;)

    TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If you have already taken it in for service and they have told you there is a hardware fault, then I'm afraid that is what you have. A hardware fault. An iPad does not need to be dropped or mistreated in order for hardware to break or a fault to develop. It is not unheard of for older devices...

    Location of cydia tweaks in ifile?

    Is does depend on the tweak, and iFile has an excellent hierarchical search built in ;) Try: /var/mobile/Library /Library /Library/Application Support for starters.
