Jailbreakers, in this tutorial guide we are going to learn you how simply you can fix endless reboot loop problem that happen when you try to install certain tweaks could result in undesirable behaviour like what we are talking about crashes or even endless reboot cycles.
If you’re an iOS user since sometime, by now you’d know that most problems (even on non-jailbroken phones) can be solved by a hard reset. Press and hold the Home and Sleep/Wake (or Power) button simultaneously for a few seconds till you see the Apple logo again. This should get you out of any app that’s in an unresponsive state. There are times when my iPhone becomes completely unresponsive to not only touch inputs, but the Sleep/Wake button as well, in such cases the hard reboot comes in handy.
Endless Reboot Loop
If your jailbroken iOS device is stuck in an endless reboot loop, it is most likely caused by a broken or incompatible jailbreak tweak that you’ve recently installed. In such situations the hard reboot solution also doesn’t work since the tweak tries to run again when iOS boots up. To solve this, when your iOS device is booting up, simultaneously keep the Volume Up button pressed and you should be able to see your Lock screen again. Now you can open Cydia, and uninstall the tweak that you think is creating problems.
If the Volume up button is not working on your iOS device then use the Clicker (not Volume up) button on your headsets or earphones.
Check Compatibility Before Installing Cydia Tweaks
Many developers are still updating their tweaks to work on iOS 6, so before installing anything from Cydia, ensure that iOS 6.1/6.0 is supported. So it is recommended that you check the compatibility of the jailbreak apps and tweaks before installing. We’re maintaining a list of iOS 6.1 compatible jailbreak tweaks here.
