Thread: Stuck in Cydia

    Unhappy Stuck in Cydia
    Just jailbroke today. iPhone 3GS, v3.1.2.

    All worked well, until the last package I tried to install in Cydia (IntelliScreen I think).

    Download broke once during, then when I did again, Cydia said it will resume. Install finished OK. Then I pressed the "Reload SpringBoard" button.

    Got the turning wheel in the middle of the screen and it won't stop. Been doing it now for 20 minutes!

    Pressing the home button or the power button on the top (well, it's not really a power button - how do you call it?) does nothing!

    plz don't tell me I just bricked it...
    is there a way to hard-reset the phone? do I just wait till battery is drained?

    Help plz!

    I had something similar happen to me after installing SBSettings from Cydia. Press Reload Springboard and got spinning wheel of death. If you've already installed OpenSSH, then SSH to your phone and issue "reboot" command. If you didn't install SSH, I don't know what your options are. After the reboot, everything was fine.

    Thanks, wow!
    More luck then brain... I had installed OpenSSH and then chose to remove it (cause I didn't want to deal now with changing the root PW, and worried it's a security risk).

    However (here comes the luck part...), I had still an SSH session open to it! Back in the game!
    (will re-install OpneSSH first thing now, of course...).

    Question is - what would i have done if I didn't have the SSH?
