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.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Hi fellows,

I have jailberaked my ipad 2 3G, but I had 4.3, it did not work (obviously), so I installed 4.3.3

Now when I go to the icon of cydia appears, then disappears ...

I have seen a post like this one in many forums on internet, and no one has yet found the answer ! Maybe the light will come out of this site? :)

My guess is that whatever server it downloads Cydia from is swamped. Keep trying.

There are 100,000 people out there doing the same thing you are, so something's gotta give. It may take a day or two,
