    You can only upgrade/downgrade to a version of iOS that Apple is currently signing.

    For your iPad that is 9.3.5, which does not have a jailbreak.

    You cannot choose to go to 9.0.2 because it is no longer signed.

    You waited too long.

    There are no instructions for what you want to do because it's not possible.

    Thanks for your prompt reply, really appreciate it.

    If I understand correctly I can only upgrade to 9.3.5 without jailbreak only.

    Sure…

    1. Turn OFF Find My iPhone (if you are using it).
    2. Connect iPad to computer running iTunes and backup. Or you can backup to iCloud if you use that.
    3. With iPad still connected to computer and iTunes still running, turn iPad off. Leave it connected.
    4. Put iPad in DFU Mode.
    5. When iTunes tells you that it detects a device in 'recovery mode', upgrade and restore (as new). Allow iTunes to do it's thing.
    6. When upgrade/restore as new has finished, restore from your iTunes or iCloud backup.
    7. Allow all your data (including apps) and content to finalize.
    8. Turn Find My iPhone back on (if you were using it).

    You're done. iPad will be on 9.3.5 and all your data will be there.

    Correct.

    What you are going to do (per my instructions) is completely remove the jailbreak you have and all it's parts by wiping the device and then installing the latest firmware for your iPad. Once that's done, you restore from the backup you made and everything is back to normal except you no longer have a jailbreak or any jailbreak installed tweaks/apps.

    I'd stay on 7.x if I were you. I'm on 7.1.2 myself.

    was there a need to put ios9 on?

    Yes, some of the important Apps are suitable with ios 8.0 or later. So, there isn't much option left.
    What do you suggest?

    Then it can't be helped.

    Is the iPad tremendously slow now?
