Rather than remove jailbreak try deleting Cydia substrate this will remove all tweaks. See if that helps.

Only way to remove jailbreak is to connect to iTunes and hit restore (tab next to update) create a back up first.

Why not just update to 8.4 whilst it's still signed. I have an iPad 2 on 8.4 and it runs fine.

Go to and download the 8.4 Ipsw for your device. Then connect device to iTunes press shift + restore and select the 8.4 Ipsw you just downloaded. Make sure to create a backup first .

Ps. Pls use the "add a comment" tab unless answering the original question.

@DrakoDuck Apple isnt signing ios 8.4 anymore, it only lasted till August 24th. If you plan on restoring now, you will have to restore to iOS 8.4.1, so don't bother downloading an ipsw
