Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

Everytime I tap on Cydia, it quickly shows Cydia's background, & then closes. I have tried going into safe mode with rebooting while holding the volume up button, but it doesn't go into safe mode. I have a 4s 6.1

I guess you don't have too much data on your device now...

I would restore as new device, jailbreak, see how it goes.

If cool, I'd reinstall my stuff.

If not, I'd report back.

That's what I'd do.

your call.

Good luck!

have you tried a hard reboot try holding the home and power button until the phone shuts off and then let it turn back on if you still can't get cydia to load you may have to re-run the jailbreak process.

What tweaks do you have installed ?

May I suggest you compare them with THIS LIST, so you might be able to find the guilty one...

Also, if you have SBSettings installed, it's much faster to do this than to reboot with the volume up:

  1. Slide your finger on the status bar, either from left to right or vice-versa;
  2. Click on "Power";
  3. Choose "SafeMode" (interestingly enough...)

Much faster and you also jsut go in safe mode this way.

Hope this helps,

eYe

You can attempt to re-install the jailbreak (via evasi0n) if it's acting strangely.
