    You're still going to need iTunes.

    Did you do an Erase All Settings and Content from the iPad itself? If so, that's a big no-no when jailbroken.

    Get iTunes installed (on a computer that can use a version your iPad is compatible with). Open iTunes and connect your iPad. Shut off your iPad. Put your iPad in DFU mode. Upgrade and restore when iTunes detects your iPad in recovery mode.

    PS. You've lost your jailbreak.

    I did it to lose the jailbreak, Everytime I try and install iTunes (My OS is Win 10 Pro 64-Bit) It says Windows installer package or something

    I can't really help with that. I have a Windows 10 laptop at home that I jailbroke two iPhones on and Windows had no issues installing.

    You're going to have to figure that out or borrow someone's computer because you need iTunes to upgrade and restore.

    Otherwise you have a paperweight.

    I think its because I deleted "Apple Update Software" but iTunes installer still thinks that its there. But I dont know how to delete the remaining folders for AUS so /:

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Find a computer with the latest iTunes version and restore the iPad.

    It's a nightmare because you go around in circles. I think what you have to do is ignore the second time it prompts you and just leave it to fully install. I went through the same thing recently.

    Hi All
    I'm very new here but am so way beyond grateful to have found your Forums!
    I'm from Canada & have owned iPhones before they were even available in Canada
    So, I'm pretty comfortable with the Jailbreaking process but the reason I'm commenting is because, I've been searching for a fix to my recent problem.
    This happened about 3 weeks ago, most sadly! I have an iPhone 5, running ios 8.4, jailbroken, & a 4th Gen ipad, running ios 7, jailbroken.
    I downloaded a few Apps from the App Store, to try out as they had recently became free.
    All of a sudden, I had the "dreaded Spinning Apple Of Death"!
    I tried everything known out there, to fix the issue. It wasn't even charging, nor would my ipad. I finally got my iPhone to start charging, being plugged into my laptop, so I let it charge for a few hours.
    When I rechecked my iPhone, it was basically "bricked", as well as my laptop was stuck in "Safe Mode"! I tried my Net book, plugging my iPhone in, to no avail. As well, I can't get the iPhone to be recognized by iTunes on my laptop & I'm getting the exact same issue discussed here on my Netbook, with being unable to complete an iTunes update, with exact same error message & situation, mentioned above & as was mentioned, it's a 'Vicious Cycle'!
    I can't get into my iPhone using OpenSSH, Nor can I get it recognized in another program I've used for years called "CopyTrans".
    I apologize if I might not have posted in the proper area but I'm basically getting pretty down as to me, this looks like a pretty nasty virus & it's basically pretty well defeating me @ any turn. I'm just wondering if anyone has had anything like this or if they might've even found a solution?
    Again, thank you ever so sincerely,

    your computer won't infect your iOS devices.
    I would recommend a clean install of all your devices starting with your windows computer then for iOS you dfu+restore as new your devices. gl
