Jailbroken devices often get stuck at Apple logo with boot loop issue or Cydia crashing after the installation of incompatible tweaks on an iOS device jailbroken with Yalu 102. If you have recently jailbroken iOS 10.2 using yalu102 and facing cydia crashing and boot loop, see the steps below to fix the issue.
Jailbreaking iOS device opens up a whole new world of iOS customization and personalization, which is otherwise not possible on a normal iOS device because of Apple imposed restrictions on what you is allowed and what not. Jailrbeaking iOS is like rooting on Android. But on iOS jailbreak is considered grave offense by Apple, while Android prides itself on being open-source platform to allow users and developers tweak their Android device according to personal taste. Some iOS tweaks are released half-cooked or incompatible on some iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch models, which when installed causes jailbroken device to enter in a boot loop which keeps on repeating endlessly, or it causes Cydia to crash unexpectedly.
Steps To Fix Boot Loop, Cydia Crashes After iOS 10.2 Jailbreak
Here’s a step-by-step guide to resolve any boot loop, cydia crash issues after jailbreaking iOS 10.2 device using yalu102 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Step 1 – Hard reboot is the first recommended course of action that should be followed immediately after any issue on an iOS device. Hard reboot works to fix boot loop issue on most occasions to restore the device back to normal state. Although, hard reboot will disable jailbreak on a semi-tethered jailbreak, but we will come back to this in a bit later in this guide. For now, check out our guide on how to hard reboot iPhone 7 & 7 Plus. Users of non-iPhone 7 / 7 Plus devices, press and hold the Power + Home/Touch ID buttons together until you see Apple logo on screen and release the button.
Step 2 – If the reboot fixes the issue and your device starts into Home screen, go ahead and delete the faulty tweak which caused the problem before entering your device back into the jailbreak mode. Usually this tweaks is the last one you installed before your device entered boot loop. In order to uninstall tweak which caused the issue, you need to enter your device into No Substrate Mode, which will disable all substrate based tweaks without ending jailbreak state. This enables users to uninstall tweaks behind boot loop, Cydia crash issues via troubleshoot. Here’s how to enter your device into No Substrate mode:
- Open yalu102 app on your jailbroken device.
- Tap go followed by immediately pressing and holding volume up button on your device.
- Don’t release the Volume Up button until your device resprings back into the lock screen.
Step 3 – In the No Substrate Mode, all substrate-based tweaks will be disabled. But you will retain access to the Cydia for uninstalling jailbreak tweaks and apps. Go to Cydia and uninstall the faulty tweak or tweaks causing boot loop or crash problem. Those who don’t know about No Substrate Mode, its basically a section where you can uninstall jailbreak tweaks from Cydia while retaining jailbreak status but without any jailbreak tweaks active and themes working. Open Cydia and delete the tweaks which caused boot loop issue.
Step 4 – Once the tweaks is installed, it’s time to leave the No Substrate mode and enter your device back into the normal jailbreak mode. For that, simply reboot your device.
Step 5 – After the reboot, if you try to open Cydia to enable themes and tweaks, it will crash again, as the yalu102 iOS 10.2 jailbreak is semi-tethered and needs re-jailbreak after every reboot. Here’s a guide on how to re-jailbreak your iOS 10.2 device on yalu102 jailbreak.
Step 6 – All done.
