Ok.. I think ive put myself from check to checkmate this time
Cut a long story short, im on iOS 10.2 jailnroken and i installed a repo and then installed a cydia app.
Afterwards I lost cydia, settings and safari filza.. desperately trying to install cydia again I didn't have afc installed in cydia to allow ifunbox to work properly.
Anyway I installed yalu again but guess what? I cannot verify account in settings because the setting icon is gone. Tried a search. I just thought if i could reinstall cydia I might be able to undo everything. Is There a way to verify the user outside of settings? Gut feeling is no and especially in a non jailbroken state? I am screwed aren't I? Ipad is fine other than that

Seems like the good old "wrecked jailbreak issue",did you by mistake turn on automatic updates? If so,try a complete factory reset,and upgrade. Of course that will kill the jailbreak,and everything related to that,but what's worst? A worthless iPad that can only be used as mousepad for some ooold laptop,or a device that works as it's supposed to do,but cannot be jailbroken?

[doublepost=1500282354][/doublepost]No, no auto update.. still on 10.2. Your post seems very realistic but i just don't want to leave 10.2. I have shsh blobs for 10.2 but haves a windows machine pc and are in a non jailbroken state..

Non jailbroken? Dude,you need a jailbreak to install anything at all that's not from App Store,so installing cydia require a jailbreak,just as it did first time you installed it. If you don't want a factory reset,your device will most likely freak out totally soon.
