Hi, guys, After jailbreaking my ipad4 having iOS 7.0.3. i choose to reset its setting. But now cydia is not visible neither apps installed by it. I have tried jailbreaking again then only i was able to see icons. I just restored settings not Erased any data. I know erasing all content and restore settings should not be done.

Try to rejailbreak again with evasi0n 7 tool but just first two stages and after first reboot, after that cydia and evasi0n 7 should be on youre screen, then stop the jb proces and delete evasi0n icon from youre springboard.

Thanks thats what i did. Yes evasion icon don't work after reboot. So i had to delete it. may be because its already jailbroken. Is this a bug or any way to avoid this problem. Because every time in future if i reset settings i will have to run evasion tool again.

I think it could be a bug and olso could be anything, specially on the bigining, until the developers find all issues take some time ;-) Honest i'm soooooo happy to have back again jb on my iphone 5 after while even if is buggy one, because now i have something more to do with my iphone ;-) then only use it just like a "phone" :-):-)

Back up and restore firmware in itunes and rejailbreak. Never do erase all on a JBed device.

Please note that i didn't erased. I reset only settings. After re jailbreaking without any new firmware upgrade apps and cydia were visible.
