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.

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
