Starting from a few days ago, my iPad mini(1st gen) was restarting every 3-5 minutes. I tried to normally restore, then recovery mode restore, and today DFU restore mode. None of these methods worked. My warranty is already expired, so I cannot bring it into an Apple store. How do I fix this problem?

EDIT: I jailbroke my iPad today, hoping to find a solution to the problem in Cydia. When I was downloading a tweak, the "restart springboard" after downloading would restart my device. Could there be a problem with springboard?

EDIT 2: I realized that it would have a period of time that it wouldn't autorestart(usually 2-3 hours), then restart approx every 30secs-2mins.

  • First guess would be the battery is fried. Apple store would be your best bet. – Tetsujin Jun 23 '15 at 17:17
  • @Tetsujin I'd rather not go into an Apple store to get it fixed, because my warranty is already expired and I would rather spend it on a new iPad. – Cyclohexanol. Jun 23 '15 at 17:20

    Wherever you go to get it fixed, they'll charge you for it. I'd rather an Apple store than try save 10 bucks in some back street guesswork emporium. – Tetsujin Jun 23 '15 at 17:25
  • @Tetsujin I'm trying DIY fixes, and if those don't work, just planning to abandon it. – Cyclohexanol. Jun 23 '15 at 17:26
  • Then it's time to abandon it. – Tetsujin Jun 23 '15 at 17:27
