    Pangu8 1.0 for OSX
    iPad Mini 2 Wifi 32gb
    iOS 8.1

    This is the second time now, this has happened...

    If my iPad Mini 2 reboots, it fails to get past the white Apple, and just sits there.

    Booting into "safe mode" (power + volume up) doesn't work either. The Apple pops up, then the device just powers back off immediately.

    When I get home, I'll restore again, but pretty soon I won't be able to restore to 8.1 and Jailbreak, so I'd like to figure this out.

    HALP!

    Method I used to jailbreak both times:

    - Restore 8.1 as new (second time via DFU)
    - Jailbreak with Pangu8 v 1.0 for OSX
    - Restore backup via iTunes

    I have to turn find my phone off, password off, and keep the iPad in airplane mode indefinitely?

    If you're restoring from iTunes backup do that before opening cydia for first time

    Will give it a shot.

    Also thinking of just setting the iPad up as new, since maybe the backup is messed up or something. Thoughts?

    The backup will work fine if you do the restore before opening cydia the first time

    I agree with you for an ipad i would just setup as new and not worry about it

    Crap, just saw 8.1.1 dropped, hopefully they don't close 8.1 before I get home!

    As of this moment, 4:18PM EST, it is still being signed. Get your ass home and restore now. 8.0.2 was signed up until around 6:00PM when 8.1 was released the earlier that day.

    Just got home, restore worked... set up as new iPad, going through Pangu again...

    Dunno why my iPad has given me issues, but my 5S is fine.

    *crossing fingers*
