IOS 8.2 roll back to IOS 7.x?

I have never jailbroken any of my apple devices so I am a little confuse don the process or if it is even possible now. I am currently running IOS 8.2 and lets say it is jailbroken, is there a way that I can roll back my iCrash, I mean iPad to a older version IOS or am I stuck?

Every since the IOS 8.x updates I have had non stop issues with my iPad 4 crashing and it keeps getting worse and worse, with IOS 8.2 it got a little better but still very unstable. Apple really needs to rethink their strategy of killing older hardware with new updates, all it does for me is make me go to a different product if I can get this thing working again.

I don't think you can roll back IOS from 8 to 7. I am now on IOS 8.3 and it is working fine.

If you back up your stuff carefully, you might be able to do a hard reset back to factory specs and that might take you back.

Try the new IOS (out yesterday).

I wonder if your problem might be the hardware (memory going bad, for example), rather than the IOS.  Millions of people are using 8.X without the crashing behavior you're describing here.

You might also have some file corruption that is not part of the operating system, but still causing crashes.

Have you considered doing a full wipe of the iPad, reinstalling the operating system from a fresh download, reinstalling the apps (downloading them afresh), and seeing if that solves things?

I've done full wipes and it works for a few days then starts crashing. I thought about RAM too but as far as I know you can't buy the replacement sticks. Any idea if parts like RAM can be purchased?

No, but check and see if you're under warranty.  If it works for a while and then starts crashing it sounds more like hardware than like a problem with the OS, especially since it's not happening to everyone else.
