    Default iPhone 5C crashed and stuck on activation
    I have a new iPhone 5C Tmobile that is jailbroken. I went into Cydia to update ProtectMyPrivacy. After that the phone seemed like it froze so I restarted holding down the power and home button.
    It looks to me like a new phone setup but I have to enter in my passcode.
    I enter it and it has my wifi network there so I connect to it.
    Then it is just stuck on waiting for activation
    I tried to restart phone holding up volume and down volume and it is still showing like a new iphone.
    iTunes is not reading phone.
    I am past my 14 days so I guess I can take it to Apple.
    Any ideas on what I can try. I have never ever had this happen on any of the iPhones I've had.
    I do not have activation lock active.
    Thanks for any help. I'm stumped.
    I also tried activating with cellar data and it is still stuck on activation screen.
    Should I try to go into DFU mode and restore - what do I restore to. Need instructions.

    Just restore it. Yes, DFU restore.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

    OK so I go into DFU and when I do that it has to be a shift restore, right? So that means I need to download the firmware from Apple and use that? Then I restore my backup and rejailbreak? Thanks.

    I just did a regular restore and will re-jb thanks
