I'm new to all of this and would appreciate some help.
I bought a used iPad 3 32gb Wi-Fi (A1416) running 6.0.1 (10A523) yesterday and have partially jail broken it.
I got to Cyida and keep getting a network error of "Unable to Load" then below it says "(The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be 'cydia.saurik.com' which could put your confidential information at risk.)"
I then began searching around google looking for a solution. I corrected my date and time to current and turned automatic off. I didn't find anything else to fix it so I asked a friend and he told me to update up to iOS 6.1.2 (file name:"iPad3,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore.ipsw"). So I did, I also tried the other two types of files with no luck.
I tried that then I got a "The iPad “______” could not be updated. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build." Error, went into my /etc/hosts file and edited it following the guides and with no avail.
That is what my hosts file looks like but I've also tried:
also with no avail.
# 188.8.131.52 gs.apple.com
# 184.108.40.206 gs.apple.com
I've also tried TinyUmbrella but I can't uncheck or check what the directions on this guide tells me to do:
I'm quite lost and discouraged.
