How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello, folks
I've recently updated my jailbroken 7.0 to a jailed 8.4
I'm attempting to jailbreak my iPad as soon as possible
I have an iPad Mini 1st Generation (wifi model a1432) running on iOS 8.4
As far as I'm concerned, the safest way is to use TaiG 2.3
I have a few questions before I start
1. Is a fresh restore of iOS 8.4 required to start, if so why and how? (I do have at least 5GB of free storage)
2. If I do get stuck on a certain phase, what should I do?
3. What are the chances of encountering boot loops?
4. If I do get boot loop, how do I fix it?
5. How long will the procees take?
6. Are there any common problems specifically on the 1st Generation iPad Mini?
7. Are there any essential things to do to ensure the process is working?

Lol enough questions .

Taig is the only way ...not just the safest way.

No you don't need to do a full restore but DO create a backup in iTunes ......just in case.

Forget about getting stuck ...just get on with it and report back IF you have an issue ....we are not going to give you a full tutorial on errors ...unless you get any.

No boot loops.

It'll take 5-15 mins generally.

There are no known issues with iPad mini 1st Gen, all device jailbreak the same.......that's not to say you WONT get any errors.

Only thing you can do to help the jailbreak is put device in airplane mode ..disable passcode. Don't run any other programs on your PC whilst jailbreaking Disable any antivirus or firewalls you have installed.

If you get any issues then just post any errors here in this thread ...don't start another.
