So I just jailbroke my 6.1.2 ipad mini. When I go to use cydia it says preparing filesystem then restarts. Does this over and over again. Can't access cydia!!!

I tried multiple hard restarts but nothing...

I don't want to restore because then I will be forced to update to 6.1.3

Anything I can do????

If you have terminal, which is one of the first things any jailbreaker should DL. Type in login (enter) then root (enter) the password( if you didnt change it then its alpine) then type apt-get update (enter)
