So yeah, I have an iPad 6.0.1, I jailbreaked it using evasion. After that, I was pissed off because there were so many random applications my sister downloaded so I resetted the settings and content through the general settings. Now my problem is that after the reset, cydia won't boot up and when I tried to re-jailbreak, evasion says that I have to reset the jailbreak first through cydia, but the problem is that cydia won't open.

Help? D:

Take backup and Restore.

Re-jaibreak and then use the compatibility spreadsheet to check which tweaks are compatible
