How to fix some mysterious problems.

I recently did a jailbreak on my ipad using RedSn0w. All went well until I tried to download Frash. My Cydia crashed and now when I try to access anything I get a malforned line 6 error. I had not downloaded ifile yet so I can not go in and delete line 6 which seems to be the most common solution to this problem. I can not download ifile from Apple because I can't run IOS 6 on my first generation Ipad.

I downloaded Cyder 2 and tried to move ifile to my Ipad. The autorun feature seems to be disabled because nothing happens. I have tried to restart and reset the Ipad and still same results.

I tried to erase and restore my Ipad to get it back to factory but it goes to a blank screen with a spinning circle and does nothing. I tried to restore from itunes (running the lastest version) but I get a firmware error.

I have done all of the most common things that I can think of. Cydia is useless at this point. I wouldn't care but I can not download anything at all i.e. books, files, music etc.

Any help would be appreciated

iFile is in cydia, not in appstore. Frash never worked well, use Puffin Browser (appstore) instead.

Restore from DFU: Plug device into computer via USB. Don't look at the device, concentrate on the counting. Hold home+power for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home for 12 more seconds. Screen should be black.
