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

iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 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.

I have an iPod touch 4g jailbroken on 4.3.3. My mom has an iPad 2 4.3.3 non jailbroken. She gets emails instantly, without having to refresh. On my iPod, I have to wait for the mail app to refresh, or I have to refresh manually to get an email. Is there any way to get instant emails on my iPod? P.S. I have looked through settings and I have it set to push every 15 minutes.

If you're using gmail, this is what I did to get real push email since I came from a blackberry and really missed it.

Go to settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars, add an account, click exchange, type your email where it says email, leave the domain part empty, the username is the email again, and the password is the password, and for description put something like gmail. After that it'll ask for the server, put Then sync what you want, and switch push on.

I think you're getting push and fetch mixed up, after tapping on the 'fetch new data' tab make sure 'push' is enabled

Whose your email client?, I have 3 email accounts, yahoo, gmail & .mac, and have no issues with push from any of them. Maybe delete the account and try setting it up again.

I have gmail. What I am saying is that I have to wait on the 15 min schedule, it automatically checks every 15 minutes. Is there a way to read the email the second it arrives in my inbox!
