    Take a backup in iTunes, put your iPad in DFU mode and restore. Restore your backup and jailbreak. You just have built up other storage that only a full restore will fix.

    Sorry...don't really know how much more specific than that I can be. Is there a particular part of that you don't understand?

    No. Any form of iTunes restore or update will remove the jail break.

    Put your iPad in DFU mode (Google it). Plug it into iTunes. Hit restore. It will restore the iPad to 8.1.2.

    When that's finished set the iPad up as new.

    Jailbreak.

    After that's done. Restore from a backup. This will put all your apps and pics etx back on.

    Then put all the cydia tweaks you want back on.

    My suggestion would be to try the DFU mode. It can't hurt and if the issue still persists after then call apple (before you jailbreak).

    What does it say is taking up the space in settings-general-usage?

    No it won't be 16gb ever. iOS takes up some space. My iPhone 5 total storage is 12.7gb. 'Other' is iOS and all the apps etc that come as stock.
