    Howdy. So this is what I need help with: my school just last week changed the wifi password because a bunch of students who weren't supposed to have it knew the password (ooooooopppss lol). So now they must have updated their security and and now when they entered the password, my iPad wouldn't connect. Luckily it still stored the password on my device which I retrieved. I ran some tests and concluded that I could connect any device I wanted to that wasn't jailbroken, but any jailbroken device couldn't connect. When the password is entered, the circle just spins eternally. I forget the network and re-enter the password but same story. So instead of taking the easy route and unjailbraking my device, I will beat the system and connect. But after many hours of trying, I'm still unsuccessful so I'm turing to you guys for help.

    Heres the equipment used:
    iPad Air 2 iOS 9.0.2 taig jailbrake
    Wifi filter is Barracuda not sure system or version

    My guess is that it scans for a certain file on my device or directory and once it locates a jailbroken file, it blocks access. So my idea would be to find a way to block the scan of my device. Any thoughts?

    Not sure hacking your schools wifi system is an activity that this forum would support, as it would be borderline illegal...

    I'm not hacking, what I'm trying to do is prevent their server from scanning my device so I CAN connect, but just with a jailbroken iPad.

    You are attempting to bypass the security systems put in place to keep their network secure.

    You can call it whatever you want, that doesn't change what it is.

    I never heard of such thing.
    A router detects that your device is JB and doesn't let you connect?
    That doesn't make any sense.
    I'd double check or ask your network admin for further info on why you cannot connect.
    Unless they enabled mac address filtering. So only certain allowed devices can connect so even if you enter the right password it still wont give you access. Or they blocked the ip address of certain devices. Yours that got the password illegally most likely got blacklisted on that network.
    That's the most logical explanation but only a guess until you figure out what the problem is by someone higher up.

    How would a jailbroken iPad make a network any less secure than a computer or android device being connected to it? They probably are blocking mobile devices altogether from their network or blacklisted the op's device for being on it when it shouldn't have been as said.

    Out of curiosity op what devices do connect and were they connected before the password change?

    Ok so before the pasword change, I had a jail broken iPhone, iPod, and iPad all connected to the wifi on top of a non jailbroken iPhone. Now with the password changed, none of the jailbroken devices will connect but my unjailbroken iPhone connects fine. I've even connected my friends unjailbroken iPhones.

    But of course you didn't ask why or how any of this is happening and just assuming and speculating.
    Most likely because you're not supposed to have any access to this network or not even in a position to ask the reason you dont have access to this wifi network. Correct?

    No it is a little but more, I will explain. My school gives juniors and seniors the permission to bring in a device (laptop/iPad/surface) to use for research and notes. The administration enters the password for only juniors and seniors. I am a junior so I brought in my iPad and they connected it last September. Then some younger students got the password and connect their phones and ipod and DSs ect. The school decided to change the password to clear up bandwith and get the the other students off. They must have updated their software and the new version won't let me reconnect. My administrator was baffled and couldn't figure it out but my conclusion is its because I have a jailbroken device.

    I think you should reconnect the wifi device and refresh software.

    Why don't you try this:

    Run Cydia Impactor, you will be set to fresh unjailbroken 9.0.2. See if it lets you connect at that point to the network. If it does, jailbreak at that time, and see if it still lets you connect. If it doesn't, then you have decisions to make.

    I don't think anybody asked you this, but does the network have a pop up each time you connect, with a box to check or button to check stating that you "agree" to a bunch of nonsense? (like at McDonalds, and Starbuck.)

    Does it make you connect through a proxy server or VPN?

    Cydia impactor is risky to run on iOS 9.x. I don't think it's worth the risk when the device is working just fine in other aspects

    It's just specifically the school network that the device is unable to connect to

    That might be a good point. I still think the whole thing sounds odd.

    to the OP, have you tried spoofing your Mac Address on the device to see if your device is blacklisted?
