How to fix some mysterious problems.

I found out that the only way to solve my problem is to fix those broken system files. Is it possible to do that and if yes, how? Thanks in advance :)

The fourth question pertaining to the same problem?! 1st,2nd & 3rd.

I told you to contact @coolstar about his semi-restore (assuming you've already been smart and taken the advice I've given you twice, in your previous questions)

You only option is to restore using iTunes now.

I already have contacted him. I just want to know if there is anything else I can do because the SemiRestore tool is still in Beta phase, there could be problems. Plus, in an article I read that this tool doesn't fix broken system files. Furthermore, this tool is just a iLEX R.A.T Wrapper. It will only remove all the tweaks, and my problem, dear sir, was not caused by a tweak. And what are you? A questions police? -.-

Yes, then restore your device with iTunes as you've broken the system files. Yes I am the Question Police.

BUT that would mean losing the jailbreak and not being able to jailbreak until a new jailbreak for iOS 7 will be released and hell knows when this will happen. Really? How much do you win a hour? :p

Yes you will but no-one has told you play around with iFile. If system files could be fixed without restoring then no-one would ever need to restore. And I'm paid $59674589679487 p/h.

But no one has told me to not play around with iFile either. I thought there was no problem. Because I had already renamed some .png files in the past and nothing had happened. WHY this had to be a special case?? :/ That's too much. Can I be a questions police too? :) :p

If I don't tell you not to set fire to yourself, does it mean it's okay to do it? And I have no idea why this happened, I don't work for Apple. Coolstars site does actually now say "This process can not and does not repair broken system files!" so your only option is to restore to 6.1.4.

Haven't you ever heard of a case like this? I guess that's the only thing I can do :/ Thanks for just convincing me to restore to iOS 6.1.4 which was what I didn't want to do :p can you give a look at this other question of mines? And no, it is not a duplicate of this one. I know that it will be useless since I'm going to lose the jailbreak, but I would like to know an answer. Thanks in advance :)

No because no-one uses iFile to change the colour of a the slider knob lol. Everyone uses Winterboard for "themeing". I don't have a clue why you'd choose iFile. And with regard to that question, I don't have a clue about any of that stuff, why is 1 minute not short enough anyway?

(18 May '13, 12:16) frvkrvmlrkb frvkrvmlrkb's gravatar image

I didn't want to theme. I was just curious, and wanted to see if that would work. I didn't choose iFile. iFile chose me :p OK. Thanks anyway. Because there are a lot of times when I lock my iPhone and I immediately want to unlock because I had to do sth. But that would mean that if someone gets my iPhone after 30 seconds I have locked it, they could get in and find my personal stuff. But I don't want to set it to ask for passcode immediately because of what I said above.. and I just thought that 30 seconds would be the right amount of time. As a last chance I tried iLEX R.A.T and cleaned up everything on my iPhone. Not only tweaks but even the iOS apps and more and it is very messed up now. SO I guess I will have to restore to iOS 6.1.4 after all. iOS 6.1.4 HERE I COME Thank you about everything :)

Can't you just save your shsh blobs, restore and then downgrade..? Edit: sorry, didn't see the date of your comment...
