The jailbreak version for iOS 9 came out recently and there are some glitches with it. This post will cover three of the most common issues so far and how to tackle them.
A lot of people jailbreak their iPhones these days to experience the variety of tweaks and android apps on their iphone. iOS is known to be rigid when it comes to customizing your phone.
Jailbreak allows you to customize your iPhone to a greater extent, and you can install a number of cool applications on your phone, that are normally not available on iOS. There are many applications such as Byta Font, Ad Blocker, Hidden Settings and iCaught U, which you cannot install on an Apple device, these are not jailbroken.
There are many pros to jailbreaking your iOS devices but the most common disadvantage is that sometimes you can come across glitches that are annoying. These problems may have scared you to revert to factory settings on your device but that is not the only option. Following are the three most common iOS 9 jailbreak issues and the ways to tackle them:
This happens when you have installed a tweak for a particular app. For example if you have installed YouTube ++ tweak for the YouTube app and the tweak is for an older version of the app then there will be a problem. The app will keep crashing over and over again. However, there is no need to panic; there is a simple step that will put your YouTube app back to normal. Just go back to Cydia and remove the tweak that you installed for YouTube. This will deprive you of the features of the tweak until a version is released that is compatible with the current version of the app.
A Boot Loop is the situation when your iPhone keeps rebooting repeatedly for no reason. This can occur as a result of installing a particular jailbreak tweak. This issue will be triggered as soon as you install the troublesome tweak. There is a simple way of tackling it. When the phone is restarting and the Apple Logo appears, tap the Volume Up key and hold it until your phone boots up normally and then release the key.
This fix will cause all your tweaks to stop working for a while. The temporary disruption is what allows your phone to boot up normally. This gives you ample time to go to Cydia and remove the tweak that was causing the problem.
When you update your iOS OTA, it does not settle well with your jailbreak tools. If you want jailbreak on your iPhone then it is better to update your iOS version manually using iTunes. The only way to counteract this problem is to restore your iPhone and update the iOS version through iTunes. The problem with action is that iOS 9.1 does not have jailbreak yet and you cannot downgrade or upgrade to iOS 9.0.2 through iTunes anymore.
The only way to tackle this issue is to install a jailbreak tweak named Cydia Impactor. This will not stop from iTunes forcing your device to update to iOS 9.1. The makers of this tweak are working on improving its function on iOS 9.0.
So far, the most glitches that have been faced on jailbreak have not been the kind that absolutely require a factory reset. You can work around these issues with these simple solutions and avoid a factory reset.
