How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, I have the tethered jailbreak of ios 6. I am having problems with almost everything I've tried to download from cydia. My question is this: when I get a package from cydia and it says to respring, do I have to "just boot" ? Isn't respringing basically restarting? Thanks!

You only need to just boot when your device is restarted. Respring means to restart SpringBoard, the program that controls your home screen and other things. Think of it like logging off and back on to a computer - you aren't restarting the whole device.

If you want to get rid of tethered (Just Boot) every time you reboot your device , follow this steps. It will solve your No Service problem after Jailbreak.

Open Cydia.

1) Click the "Changes" tab in the footer.

2) Press the "Refresh" button in the top left corner.

3) After "Reloading Data", perform a search for "p0sixspwn" (the O is a zero).

4) Tap Install.

5 After installing p0sixspwn your device is untethered

6) Install ultrasnow 1.2.8( u can use iphone yeta, or iphone folders any other methodes)

7) Restart your device enjoy

if the above method didn't work For Solving No Service follow the steps given below:

Rather than using PuTTY for terminal on windows pc, a better solution would be to use mobile terminal on your apple iphone.

Go to Cydia

Go to Cydia tab in footer

Scroll down and click "Open SSH"

Scroll down and click on "Change Default Password"

In Option C, you'll find mobile terminal. Click on it.

Install mobile terminal

Exit Cydia and open mobile terminal

You don't have to type the ip address. Type

iphone:~ mobile$ su root

The default password is alpine (it won't be visible when you type. Hit return after you've finished

Use the following if you are trying to solve NO SERVICE error in untethered mode

root# chmod 755 /var/mobile/ /var/mobile/Library/ /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/

Exit mobile terminal and go to setting > general > reset > reset network settings

Let the phone reboot itself.

Follow this after the above steps
