Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Looks like it's supported. The only iPad not supported is the second revision of the WiFi-only iPad 2, which has a model number of MC954 or MC989.

It works perfectly now!! Love it!! The probleme was the iOS of the iPad it's was 5.1 it should be 5.1.1. Thx Britta. Should I do something after the jailbreak?? Like save SHSH or something?

Whenever you open Cydia, it automatically saves any available SHSH blobs for your device.

Use an app like GeekBench, Linpack or Battery Life Pro. I've personally only used Linpack -- it was quick, easy and free.
