    Okay so im using my schools iPad. I jail-broke it and found out that they are suspendeding people who jailbreak them. so i deleted cydia and thought all the apps with it would go like ifile and installus but they didn't. So ive been reading alot and i cant figure out how to install cydia back on without restoreing so i thought maybe if i back it up with all the school apps and such then re-install or re jailbreak it , then restore it with the back up data and have cydia plus installus and all the other apps and then be able to delete installus and ifile through cydia. but i have no idea if this will work and im scared ill mess something up. can someone tell me if this will work or if there is another way to fix this ..? please and thank you ):

    Take it like a man and report what you did to the school.

    Restore the device, say the iPad asked for it and you went through with it.

    No offense, but you don't seem like you know enough about these things to be jailbreaking. But jailbreaking is legal.

    Just restore it with iTunes or re-jailbreak it then delete all of your apps/mods.

    ----------

    There is a tweak that lets you delete Cydia apps like normal apps, and it doesn't allow you to delete Cydia unless you go and disable the protection.

    There is a way to delete it on the app itself i don't remember exactly. and i do know alot. and like i what would be a better excuse then it asked for it because if it asked for it more students would say the same thing. i would need a serious error that would happen. you could help me out that way haha.

    ----------

    Okay i have alot of time to fix it. Thanks. take your time to tell me :D

    Good luck. And don't let them find out that you did something completely legal and get suspended for it.

    I think you need to stop playing with your iPad and pay attention in class. Maybe there you will learn that the first letter in a sentence is always capitalized. ;)

    1st off you DON'T ACCIDENTALLY delete Cydia 2nd you went a head and did what you knew was wrong with the schools property. 3rd you were using the schools property to download illegal apps (yup that's suspension no doubt about it) I agree just man up and go in the office before you get called in. you were over your head on this before you even started. Good luck!

    I think it's funny that people are pointing out that it's legal to jailbreak. That's completely irrelevant. It's not his iPad...it's the school's. They have a policy that you can't jailbreak their devices (rightly so, IMO). The school can do whatever is in their power to do to students who break the rules, including suspension.

    It's legal to call someone foul names...but try telling that to your teacher when you're suspended or in multiple detentions that it was legal for them to say these things.

    Legal rights do not equal 'zero consequences.' You have a right to tell your boss off and to run around screaming in your office. Your boss also has the right to fire you for it. You just can't be arrested for it. Same thing here.

    So the school is just loaning everyone iPads that they can't use in class? Also, I reread and saw "Installous", so I no longer have sympathy for you, thief.

    ----------

    The rule doesn't make sense. It's as if jailbreaking could actually harm the iPad, which it can't. I'm assuming the school thought jailbreaking was illegal and got all strict about it.

    My old school had a Mac OS X server behind the computers (very smart). They had AFP available to the WAN. I would connect to the school server from home, enter my username/password, and copy any files I forgot to take home. People considered that "hacking". I didn't get caught, but someone else who also did it got caught.

    Why don't you just poof all of the JB apps like iFile, Cydia, installous, etc.?

    That way, they would never that the appstore apps are pirated..

    Unfortunately I can't remain calm when I see what has happened to the children these days. Thank heavens my kids grew up before all this stuff became so popular. You should read a book when you are "bored." You know, books, those things that have lots of pages made of paper you need to turn every few seconds instead of pirating software. :D

    The rule makes perfect sense. These are not the students' iPads....the school is responsible not only for repairing them should the be an issue (and providing support), but jailbreaking technically voids the warranty. You think it's unreasonable for a public entity to have rules so that their own property doesn't have the warranty voided? Not to mention jailbreaking the iPad does two things: when the student turns it in at the end of the year, it adds time for the IT personnel to restore the iPad to new and unjailbreak...which they may not know how to do properly, which adds work to them and costs the district money. Second, if they DON'T restore before giving them back out, there's the potential for someone to install some sort of hack that will then funnel private data from the next user back to the first user. I'm sure the school doesn't want to take any chances with something like that, regardless of how remote the possibility may be.

    I can pretty much guarantee that 90% of businesses have the same rules for their computing equipment.

    Finally, it doesn't matter what the reason is...the fact is, it's against school rules. Your belief that the rule doesn't make sense is irrelevant. On your own devices, you can do what you want, but this isn't his iPad.

    You had to pay $600 for an iPad you don't get to keep and don't get to use in class? What's the point? You should just get your own iPad and hack it all you want. If all you're doing is using at home for games, there's no way they could tell (or punish you for buying an iPad that's not from them).

    Wow...Um. So how do they force you to 'rent' theirs for the same price as a new one? Why couldn't you just buy your own and bring it instead? There's got to be some legal issue there.

    This isn't a private school where they test you to see if your qualified to get in is it.
