    I've been trying to unjailbreak my ipad because it's running on ios 7.0x and now it's not compatible with many apps. I'd like to update to ios 8.4 for now. But I'm very concerned about my ipad safety

    Hook to your computer/mac and do a system restore.

    Simply back up to iTunes.
    Restore you iPad from the backup which will remove the jailbreak
    Now update

    No no, restoring from a backup will not remove the jailbreaked. Instead he need to manually do a backup via iTunes, once backup is finish, put the iPhone in recovery mode, then use iTunes to download the latest iOS and install.
    The recovery mode is important as it will prevent iTunes to do some sort of checking prior in factory restore.
    If the device is not in recovery mode, and you click on upgrade or restore, iTunes will still download the latest iOS and proceed to the installation, but during the installation, you will face load of errors throw at you by iTunes which will render factory restore impossible.
    So manually backup in iTunes, then put device in recovery mode, then let iTunes upgrade or restore.
