Soft reset your phone (lock button plus your home button). Once the screen is black, simply power back up your device then hold the volume up button, do not let go until your lock screen appears. Afterwards, it may seem as if your device is not jailbroken but still have the cydia app. Simply do another soft reset and power back up your phone. Do not hold the volume button. Your phone should be back to normal.

Ever stuck in the booting screen after installing cydia tweaks or enabling jailbreak functions? Don't want to lose all the things in your devices? Don't want to wait for iTunes to restore? Try this method, it is 99.9% working! (100% working on iPad 3 iOS 8.1 and iPhone 5s iOS 7.x)

After your device stuck in the booting screen, you tried the power and home button but it keeps booting. You tried to go in and out of DFU mode but it keeps booting again. Here is a working and easy method to make your devices go to normal ( of course it will not make your device go into 'FULLY NORMAL'.


First, hold the power, volume up and home button at the same time until the sleep and the Apple logo appears. Then, let go of the sleep and home button but remain holding the volume up button. It will go to a black screen soon, at that time, let go of the volume up button and wait. The lock screen will appear soon.

One more thing you need to do is delete the cydia tweak or app that you have just install or use that makes you device go into the booting screen and respring. Some or all cydia tweaks may not function normally after this but it is better than erasing all your data and need to wait for a long time to restore in iTunes.

I hope this helps you.
