Don't know what that problem means, but 8.0.x is buggy as hell, I suggest restoring to 8.1.2 and jailbreaking with TaiG. http://taig.com/en

I didn't do it on my own iPad but my friend's iPad 2 it runs smoothly with no problems. I'm still on iOS 7 on both of my devices but you have nothing to lose - if something fails you can always restore and rejailbreak. Just make sure to have a backup of all your important data.
