    Why would you recommend this? He's stuck in SAFE MODE, not a bootloop. If you tell him to DFU restore, he'll end up on 7.1, which cannot be jailbroken.

    OP, if you have OpenSSH installed, run SemiRestore7.

    Actually, it is great advice for threadstarter who likely should stay clear of jailbreaking:

    1) He doesn't have the common sense not to "mess up" his jailbroken device (by removing required components).
    2) He doesn't have the experience to fix such a common issue (SafeMode).

    For validation of this response, I refer you to thread starter's title --> "I ruined my iPad"

    While that might be good advice, I strongly disagree with it. When I got my first iPod, I messed the crap out of it tinkering with stuff. It was fun. Of course, back then we had the limera1n exploit. I consider myself way more experienced nowadays due to that.

    And since his device is already messed up, that advice doesn't really work.

    OP is clearly expressing concern that he/she is stuck even mentioning that he/she cannot restore. Why is the advice not sound? Restoring removes the jailbreak anyway and it's an option OP was considering.

    I also agree with Paradox
    Just maybe the OP does not know all of his/her options, we all have been there at some point in this game, learning...
    And if given all the options, they could spend a little time reading learning along the way at which point they can make a educated "to a point decision" what course of action is best for them.
    Just maybe the OP is in panic mode as they think they have nothing more than a paperweight, which it is not and it may be recovered with the jailbreak intact.
    If not, then the other last option would be a DFU restore back to factory without jailbreak.

    Exactly this. We can't expect everyone to solve our issues every time. Learning stuff about jailbreaking and other methods to fix a jailbroken problem is important. Restoring is easy to say and do, but it's not the best solution. I would consider it a last resort.

    I am not fighting with anyone in this thread by asking the following, nor am I being hostile. But I am curious. How do you interpret the OP's opening statement as the OP wanting to keep his jailbreak?

    The OP says: "I made a horrible mistake by jail breaking my iPad two weeks ago…" (emphasis mine).

    That implies to me that the OP does NOT want to stay jailbroken. Or am I reading this wrong?

    Or the thread title
    I Ruined my iPad

    Which they don't understand that it can be fixed ;)

    Presenting all options of resolution are why these forums useful
    In the two weeks the OP has been jailbroke, they may have a few tweaks they enjoy and if given the option to retain them, they just maybe willing keep the jail broken state
    I read the OP post as desperation driven

    Yes, it probably can. But based on the title and the word "mistake" I interpret that as the OP not wanting it fixed, but to move on unjailbroken.

    I'm not arguing or trying to say that anyone is wrong by giving the help they have. I'm just giving my interpretation of this.

    It'd be a lot easier I think if the OP came back and made his intentions clear so we all wouldn't have to guess as to what he wants.

    Good chance the OP will never be back, I wager the DFU restore worked ;)

    Good idea if the OP stays stock from now on.
    JB is not for everyone.

    I tried it, but iTunes shows error again.

    ----------


    Thanx buddy, I don't care if I end up on 7.1, and cannot jailbreak. I just want my iPad back to normal again, now a lot of apps crashed easily. It is very frustrating.

    I read about semi restore but i don't have OpenSSH installed, thanks anyway.

    ----------

    Yes, it is fun, and i didn't know restoring the iPad is impossible, I thought I could miss with my iPad and restoring it anytime I want, but Man I was wrong.

    To the people talking about restoring it and keeping it on 7.0.6 or below as far as I know thats impossible, Apple is no long authorizing installation of that software. I got stuck in a reboot loop and got an error overtime I tried to restore to any version before 7.1

    OP, try to re-download 7.1 and see if it works.

    Yes I am learning new things, I don't know why every time I asked my question in forums people come and say "you are an amateur, and you shouldn't did that or ....." I know i am an amateur and That's why I'm asking for help. Are those people never made mistakes in their life?

    ----------

    I said i made a horrible mistake cause my iPad doesn't work properly after jailbreaking. But if i could restore my devise maybe I try jailbreaking again but this time with a lot more research about it.

    ----------

    I am back buddy, And thank you, I just wish my iPad back to normal, and come out of safe mode, and then if I can jailbreak it again maybe I will, and if can't it's okay too.

    If there is a way to restore my iPad with iTunes (which i tried it before a lot, and i couldn't restore my devise, since iTunes show an error every time) , or even without iTunes, please help me.

    But the important thing is I want to get out of safe mode, thank you all for helping.

    ----------

    Hi cyber, if it worked I will be back for thanking all people who helped me here ;)
    But it didn't cause I tried and i get iTunes errors again :(
    Thank you anyway.

    ----------

    Thanks, do you mean download an iOS 7.1 and try to restore my iPad with iTunes holding the shift button and hit the restore, but I download iOS 7.1 two times and it's a very heavy file (more than 1 Gb) , I really don't think that Errors is related to my iOS.
    Thanks anyway.

    ----------

    Maybe you are right and JB is not for everyone, but as i said this was my first time so ....
    Thanks anyway.

    Unless you have a hardware issue with PC/iPhone or the firmware hasn't download a DFU mode restore should always work.

    Can you confirm you have put it into DFU mode?

    However if you want to keep your jailbreak you could try RAT

    Add the following repo in cydia http://cydia.myspace.com/ilexinfo/

    To do this open cydia
    Select Manage at the bottom of the screen
    Click Edit top right
    Click Add top left
    Add http://cydia.myspace.com/ilexinfo/
    The install ilex R.A.T

    Once this is installed you can use it to remove all your jailbreak tweaks but it will leave your phone jail-broken and on the same firmware

    Don't know if he'll be able to do that since in the OP he said he deleted cydia.

    OP
    Have you tried to RE-Jailbreak with evasi0n7, although normally not advised.
    Just maybe it will recognize it being attached and kick it out of the mode its in now and get you cydia back, then you could move forward either direction.

    Try using another computer to restore it.
    If it doesn't then bring it to Apple for replacement.

    I tried this one, i start the evasi0n7 in my PC and start jailbreking, but in the certain part the evasi0n7 asked me to open the app (before the cydia icon appear) but when I try to open it, it suddenly crashed and jump out.
    I mean i can't finish the jailbreaking procedure.

    Its a software for PC. It allows you to access your device's file system via USB if you have afc2add installed from cydia on iOS 7
