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.

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
