i wanna restore/upgrade my ipad2 to a jailbreak capable OS, i m currently on ios 5.1.1, have shsh of ios 6.1,6.1.1 etc, I dont mind staying on the same OS either, just want to completely format my ipad. Any options ??

If it is the only shsh you have saved , then there is no other options for you at this point. Re-restoring to current 5.1.1 is not possible without shsh, and restring to jailbreakable 6.x.x is not possible either EVEN with saved shsh. So, all you can really do is to restore to 6.1.3 which at this time would mean no jailbreak. PS on a side note, why would you need to restore so badly? What is going on?

I suggest you go to cydia- manage- packages. Locate and remove mobilesubstrate, or if you have sbsettings installed simply boot to a safe mode. This will disable all jailbreak effect and if those services will start to work again, then you need to reinstall mobile substrate and delete tweaks one by one to isolate the offender. If above services will not start to work then... it is not jailbreak related ( although you might deleted something with ifile) and to fully troubleshoot the issue you do need to restore.
