the ipad mini uses the same firmware as the ipad 2 and on the first mini cydia was registering it as an ipad 2 on the old 6.x jailbreak. the ipad2 wifi is currently not able to be jailbroken with evasion even though the site says it is. there is some issue causing it not to be able to. and if you used OTA update you screwed yourself right there. open iTunes and plug the device in. hold power button for 10 seconds. after the 10 seconds continue holding the power button and hold the home button with it for another 15 seconds. after the 15 seconds release the power button but continue holding the home button for another 10-15 seconds. you can let go of the home button when iTunes recognizes the device in recovery mode. (the device will actually be in DFU but for some reason iTunes recognizes it as recovery mode. the screen will be black on the device so don't freak out. If iTunes doesn't recognizes the device, hold the home button and power button at the same time until the apple logo pops back up and then try again.
