How to fix some mysterious problems.


I have an iPhone 5 on iOS 9.0.2 with Pangu jailbreak. After updating some already installed tweaks: Location Faker, Phantom for Snapchat, something with Sandboxing and a Tethering tweak of which I don't remember the name I did a respring and everything was fine.

Some days later after I rebooted my iPhone it entered an apparent BLOD. In fact after reading some stuff I found out it might not be a BLOD, this post on reddit made me think it could actually just be continuously respringing. I can confirm that the jailbreak at boot works correctly as when I connected it to a power source, at some point, it makes the classical "I am charging" sound as if it was to be ready to use. Unfortunately even after the "reassuring" sound I am left with a white apple on a black screen. Around 30-40'' later another sound is emitted as the respring is probably over again but again I just can't do anything.

What I tried so far is to put the iPhone in safe mode but it seems not to work as the behaviour is exactly the same as described above. Also after a crash of Mobile Substrate (as I assume happens) the iPhone should anyway respring into safe mode and boot normally.

My iPhone has now been rebooting (and respringing) for two days. In one occasion it also showed the normal "home screen" just to start rebooting 20'' later. However I was not able to reproduce this.

What I am now trying to do is to access the iPhone via USB/SSH as described here. I hope to be able to understand what is causing the reboot and (hopefully) fix it.

I would really appreciate any heads up!
