    About 2 years ago apple removed the vlc video player from the App Store- it was not available in cydia for about a month. I got my copy from a link on a forum, it auto installed if app sync was installed. The app was open source and freeware it's developers wanted it shared and put out there-no piracy here.

    So you want to reference VLC player, which is a multimedia player primarily used to play the wide spectrum of media formats found in pirated videos online (of which you could directly load these file types into the apps file saving function to play on iDevices...which is why it was removed from the app store in the first place FYI).

    Strike one...try again.

    It was removed due to a licensing conflict nothing to do with piracy. And there you go again just assuming that everybody is pirating. I play and edit a variety of different files types on my idevices. Video files I own or are sent to me as a forum owner and administrator.

    A year ago I was toying with alternative ways to install free apps on my ipad. I used free apps in ifunbox to install them using appsync again. When I say free I don't mean cracked I'm talking about freely available third party apps, one of them was a video camera.

    You're speaking to someone who fully understands why it was removed...the free ware nature of the original VLC app which SHOULD allow for people to load whatever files they want into the app itself (including customizations)...something that one of the original developers was not happy with. There was a conflict on how it was loaded to Apple, or how it could be changed if people got ahold of the app and wanted to change it (essentially creating the situation where tons of VLC knock offs with various levels and variants of customizations would pop up forever on the app store)...it was removed...and locked down to what we have now. I never said it was removed because of piracy...you simply didn't clearly read or perhaps comprehend my first post).

    You're sitting here arguing oranges when we're discussing bananas.

    Sounds very much to me that you are suggesting that this app is used for playing pirated videos downloaded from the Internet. Only my perception of your post but others can decide for themselves.

    It IS used primarily for playing pirated material...regardless of what a niche group of users might use it for. My comment about why it was removed simply referenced the ability to load files into the app itself (to which I clarified in my second comment which includes customized build pieces for it which would effectively change the app itself...the essence of freeware as it seems, and something that at least one of the original developers did not agree with).

    And again...you've yet to answer my question about apps outside of the realm of Cydia and the app store that aren't associated with piracy.

    I've already gave you two examples and again you are are assuming that folk who use the vlc app are using it primarily to watching pirated videos on it.

    What gives you the right to make such a statement?

    Common sense. I mean I'm sure there are people out there that use uTorrent in a totally legitimate and legal way...most people use it to get pirated movies/music/software. It's the same difference.

    You gave VLC as an example...where was your second?

    And honestly, you're not going to win this argument...because you're trying to put lipstick on a pig. People using even a microscopic amount of logic will see you splitting hairs to try and get a point across.

    What you are saying is based on your opinion of vlc player nothing more, show me facts if you can- you can't. Yet you come on here and berate me for mentioning an app that I and many many other folk use for legitimate purposes. You've asked me to provide examples and I did. Now you show me the facts and evidence that this app is used primarily to view pirated videos downloaded from the Internet.

    You poor thing...are you really that blind to the reality of these things? To an extent where you would believe the app is primarily used for another purpose outside of what I've reflected? Let me know when you return to the real world so we can continue this discussion. It won't be anymore fruitful given your stance, but at least you won't seem so impossibly naive.

    lol...the next thing you know, you'll be trying to argue that most people buy weed for medicinal purposes.

    Well given you're opinion that it's used to view pirated movies primarily, its a wonder its back on the App Store given apples stance on piracy.

    Plenty of apps on the app store have a clear purpose outside of the innocent core description...VNC viewer for instance.

    But wait...I forgot...we're living in an innocent, Dudley Do Right fantasy world.

    I've grown tired of trying to talk sense into you. If you want to continue your idiocy...have at it on your own.

    Yes there's plenty of video apps that play video files and allow file sharing through iTunes but it doesn't mean people only download them to play pirated movies.
    Of course there's always a chance they could be used for this purpose. Me,I tend to think that most people would download these apps and use it for its original purpose- the majority would use it for legitimate videos, not pirated ones. You think otherwise.
    This forum is all about opinions maybe you should have more tolerance of other peoples views before starting the personal insults.

    Don't call yourself lame, dude. Don't be so hard on yourself; everyone makes mistakes now and again. The problem is that you jailbroke the iPad and then you tried to fiddle with it. The problem has arisen by the fact that you are unfamiliar with what a jailbreak is and have tried to muck about with the iPad instead of following the guides and reading up online. Unfortunately you have no-one or nothing to blame except yourself in this instance. All the jailbreaking guides out there warn you that you can damage your device if you don't know what you are doing. It's a steep learning curve and I think you have been guilty of a little impatience.

    Have you been following the advice of people in this thread? Have you disabled cloud backups in iTunes and put your device in DFU mode via the link in rdiddy_25's signature - http://forums.imore.com/guides-how-a...e.html#91;/url

    DFU has a greater chance of assisting you restoring the device now as I think you have potentially deleted some aspects of the operating system. Go into DFU (link above) and connect the iPad to iTunes.

    If you do manage to get your device back to factory, I would strongly suggest you don't try jailbreaking again.
