Thread: Iphone 4 freezes after installing Cydia app

  1. #1
    Default Iphone 4 freezes after installing Cydia app
    Does anyone have similar problem as me? After I install a Cydia App and restart, my Iphone freezes on the Apple Logo. Does anyone know what's causing this or how to solve it?

    Which firmware version is on your iphone, and how did you go about jailbreaking the device?

    Currently my iPhone is 4.2.1
    I used Redn0w to jailbreak it. After I did I boot my phone under the option "tethered boot" in Reds0w since Cydia crashes.

    Default In the same boat
    I am also looking for the same answer. I am using redsn0w_win_0.9.6b5 and the first time i use it i install Cydia. Then after it installs i reboot and use tethering to boot. Cydia opens fine after that, i can also install the updates. But when ever i install, lets say the Mywi or BossPref, it asks to reboot and then it freezes on the apple logo.

    bummer =/ well i've been looking for solutions online but yet to find one. I've already given up on installing stuff on cydia since i've already restore my iphone like 4-5 times

    i figured out a loop hole for us. when you install a app through cydia and it asks u to reboot, just hit the home button. when you get to the home screen pug it into ur laptop and shut off ur iphone. now boot back up using red_snow and it will work fine. just keep in mind its no permanent, so anytime u need to reboot ur phone u have to use red_snow or else it will freeze up. other than that we can download whet ever we want until they fix our problem. and never turn ur phone off or let it die without rebooting with red_snow in tethering mode or u will be restoring again.

    One last thing. Make sure u restore and sync your iphone with itunes first or it will restart in the process and freeze up. Then you would have to complete the whole process over. I made that mistake, but.... its well worth it.

    Well thank you for the help lastchance. I got mine to working now though I have some problem with winterboard

    Yea a lot of the themes for winterboard doesn't work due to their old versions and not for the iPhone 4.2

    I see. I gues I'll have to wait for updates and stuff in the meantime. Appreciate all your help though.

    So I thought this was the solution by pressing the home screen and manually shutting off the phone and rebooting with redsn0w as a tethered phone. I was able to install ********** with that procedure and it went well. Then I tried to install iRealSMS 3.0 and used the same method, only this time instead of the phone freezing at the apple icon, it freezes with the redsn0w pineapple icon...i've restored my phone at least 8 times now. Any new solutions??

    Default You need to knock it into dfu mode
    I found out how to get this working.

    When it locks up on the Apple logo, hold the power button and the home button together.

    When the iphone reboots let go of the power and hod the home button, crank up redsnow then just select the boot tethered option.

    Thats it, I think the locked apple is like the old recovery mode when we had to reboot.

    See post above yours about using a DFU mode restore.

    When it locks up on the Apple logo, hold the power button and the home button together.

    When the iPhone starts to reboot, let go of the power and hold the home button until you are in DFU, then restore in iTunes.
