How to fix some mysterious problems.

My little brother has an iPad 4 running iOS 8.3. His messages app continues to crash and he's not sure why. As far as I know he did not receive the "effective. Power" text and it is unlikely though it is possible. I've tried all the suggested fixes; Siri, photos, even restore. I factory reset it and restored from iCloud backup as he did not want to loose his data. Any ideas? iBackupbot? Is restore the only way? Does he have to wait for a jailbreak or software patch? Thanks!

If its on 8.3 it is not a jailbreak issue

You know what? Unless it would kill you to help, Which it WOULDNT, you should just help someone out. It's no big deal to just type out a simple answer. And my question wasn't "against the rules" so you really should help someone in need. And if all you're gonna do is be mean like that then please, just don't answer my questions. I'd rather someone else
