Connect your iPad to the computer via a USB cable. You will notice the device is detected by software. Uncheck the box towards the left of the window. This box asks if you would like a Chinese piracy app store installed. We strongly recommend for security and legal purposes that you do not check this box.

For me, after i press the pang icon, it progresses, reboots, then i enter my passcode, and then it reboots again. But there is no cydia and not jailbroken. help? is it the passcode problem? do I have to have the passcode turned off?
