Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.

I jail broke my ipod, installed cydia with loader, and when i try to open it it keeps sending me back to the "slide to unlock" screen. Please help!! When i was installing cydia, it said something like "your ipod does not have enough space please delete videos or apps" although i restored it and have 14.3 gb left. HELP PLEASE!

Greenpois0ns' loader is a pain in the neck, so if it's an ipt2g MC model then just jailbreak with Sn0wbreeze 2.2.1 instead, it involves restoring again to a custom 4.2.1 firmware, but you wont suffer the loader/cydia probs of GP. If it's a non MC model then jailbreak using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc18

If it's an ipt3g/4g then restore to 4.3.3 and then jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc18
