    Default Resetting an iPad with jailbreak

    A while back I jailbreaked my iPad and stopped using it a month later. Now I want to reset it and give it to someone. However I forgot my password and a reset would not work because apple notices the jailbreak and cancels the reset.

    Default Re: Resetting an iPad with jailbreak

    You can't reset it on the device itself when it's jailbroken.

    You'll have to hook it up to iTunes on a computer and do a restore of it. Note that that will eliminate the jailbreak though. A restore will install iOS 8

    The PITA way around that is to delete all your stuff manually and sign out of your Apple ID when you're done so your friend can sign into his/hers.

    And if you don't know the password to it, you're out of luck. Sorry.
