Thread: What do I do if Cydia freezes/loops on me?

  1. #1
    Default What do I do if Cydia freezes/loops on me?
    I tried to install a new package and when it got to the screen (black on with the details of the install) that instructs you to Reload Springboard, it seems to be stuck in a loop. I can't get back to the home screen or even turn the phone off. I'm on FW 3.0 on a 3GS. Any ideas or help is much appreciated.

    try a hard reboot by holding the power and home buttons and see if it will reboot that way.

    I just tried that too, nothing happened. I even tried to synch my phone with itunes again to see if it would get me out of the loop, but that didn't do anything either.

    Only 2 options then. You can just let the battery run dead and see if will reboot when you recharge it or DFU mode and restore.
