How to upgrade iPad iOS 6 to ios 8 if it's jailbroken and iTunes is updated to last versio so it allows to upgrade only to iOS 8.3? And I need to jailbreak it later as well.

The question has been closed for being "Piracy (against the rules)" by Tilerone, 15 May '15, 02:13

AppCake is piracy and not allowed to be talked about here.

^ yep try supporting devs and paying for things. Devices work better when no piracy is installed, delete all the repos you added, delete cydia substrate. Try reading rules when you click ask a question. Cydia did warn you when adding these repos.

So jailbreak and install cydia itself is illegal too? That's what they say if I ask on Yahoo, so I thought cydia doesn't consider itself a pirate at least. Because there is a question on which iOS jailbreak is proven to work reliable and it was just skipped. It's my son's ipad and I didn't update it a while, he is 4 so I'm asking instead, I hope it's not illegal and I don't have to get power of attorney for that...

Jailbreaking is not about free stuff.

I paid for STUFF and didn't work after I tried the same thing on free and it has worked for 6 months untill they released upgrade again. should I throw then iPad and buy 2.500$ communication device from Alberta health care? I really hoped that 700$ iPad and 300$ app can replace it and also have other things to do for a sick kid

Nope it's not just you .. I seem to think he feels jailbreak is all about stealing and getting paid stuff for free. He won't accept his issues arise from the fact he instslled piracy and its screwed up his device ...he'd be better off using dfu mode and restoring to 8.3 I feel as he doesn't want tore move all the piracy so it'll work correctly
