    So I purchased a secondhand ipad 2 from a pawn shop (which was a terrible idea) first it had a lock code which I just restored got rid of that. But now in order to finish it says I need to log in with the previous owners iCloud. Is there anyway around that. Or can you jailbreak it an unset up iPad?

    No. You'll need that previous owner to enter their password.

    Sounds like the pawn shop bought a stolen device from someone and sold it to you.

    Yep I agree I would bring it back to the pawn shop where you purchased it, if they give you a hard time I would then look into getting your local PD involved. The iPad is useless to you unless you can get the previous owners password to unlock it.
