    why my iphone battery is dying fast after jailbreak(within five hours it will be 25%)???????

    • ali says:

      using 3g insted of wifi in iphone will make ur iphone battery dies faster

    • Mofreh says:

      Check if you have Bluetooth on you can located in general .
      After all 5 hours with 3G and Mobile Date on that is not bad
      But check your Bluethood if it is on please turne it of
      I don’t think jailbreak has any thing with your battery life
      Have a life and enjoy the 5 hours whic is too much to be on the phone any way

    • Edward says:

      Just of 3g, wifi, bluetooth. date and low its brightness

    • layth says:

      you had to wait because there is no jailbreak ipad 2 there is just the A4 devices

    • Tohin says:

      if this is the nabil I know greetings. If not then whatever anyways. The problem is with the jailbreak as jailbreaks on iDevices tend to kill hardware performance (including battery life.) You could try and change your settings to make battery life last, switch off 3G or 4G or edge and use wifi instead, lower your brightness and keep locked when not in use. Other than that it can only be your jailbreak that is the root of the problem.

  2. Jermaine says:

    Hi i done all the necessary steps backing up and the jail breaking step, and the cydia icon appeared, i opened it then the screen went off and when I unlocked my ipad 2 (wifi), only the newsstand appears and nothing else. I have no access to settings or anything. Is there a way to resolve this? I tried to restore and the same problem still exists.

  5. David Rodriguez says:

    I have a iphone 4s iOS5.1.1 and I recently jailbroke the phone.
    Some how some way every time I take a picture or video, it says its saving what ever I was doing video or pic.
    But when I go to view it in photo stream or camera roll, theyre not there.
    Only thing that is in the photo stream is what was taken before the phone was jailbroken.
    Nothing is in camera roll either. One of the main features of the ipone I like is their camera, and whats the point of having the phone with no camera.
    I really do not want to go out and buy another phone. or switch to a android phone.

    • XombeR says:

      If the problem really wont be fixed by any methods, you should restore your phone by using iTunes. This most offen fixes any issues.

  8. Om'Anand says:

    I used absinthe fine, it went through all the way to the end and told me my phone was jailbroken. However when I try to sync cracked apps i’ve downloaded my phone tells me that they cannot be installed. i’ve tried restoring and “re-jailbreaking” my Iphone 4s about 7 times now. no change in the situation. it runs on ios 5.1.1. how can i use the cracked apps i’ve downloadeD?

    • Yakup says:

      After You have jailbroken your device go to cydia> manage> sources and then add this repo:
      Then go to that source and download installous, that will automaticly download app sync 5.x too and that will allow you to install cracked apps

  11. Jordan says:

    Near the end of the installation of absinthe untethered 2.0.4 it suddenly says it failed and stops the installation by itself. When I connect to iTunes I notice two things, my pictures are gone and there is a extra 4.3 gb of “other” data that came from nowhere. Then I do a restore from my backup, sweet my pictures and everything are back, but the 4.3 gb of other data is still on my iPhone. I made the backup before I tried to install absinthe, that means the 4.3 gb were not on my backup. I want to get rid of the other data.

    • Yakup says:

  13. Nancy says:

    I am trading my jailbroken 4s to my daughter for her 4 on Sprint.
    Both are backed up in Itunes to our computers.

    Do I need to remove Cydia and jailbreak on mine, does this cause it to brick?
    Or can I leave alone, let her upload and restore settings from her Itunes and it carries over?

    I know I will have to jailbreak the 4, but this question is for swapping phone numbers on a jailbroken 4s, what to do.


  14. Atul says:

    Thank you for the great software. I have a problem with my iphone because when I try to use your software to terminate the DFU mode, the phone shuts off and disconnects from iTunes so I cannot upload a custom IPSW. I keep getting Error 1015 in Itunes, but my phone won’t connect unless it’s in DFU……once I stop the DFU it disconnects. Thank you.

      I assume you iPhone is jail broken , it is go to cydia and add this repo
      A) http://
      Then to to the repo you added or search for instullous 5 or 5.1 depends on your iOS
      The instullous icon will appear of your iPhone with download arrows
      Click on it refresh

  24. merci says:

    i have trouble in these two jailbreaks :

    1-Teathered Jailbreak
    2-Unteathered Jailbreak

    can you explain me about teathered jailbreak and unteathered jailbreak ? which one of them is best jailbreak

    i am using ipad 3 (GSM) A4

    • Thomas says:

      Merci, my granddaughter (she’s 4 years old) likes to turn off my cellphone because she knows it saves the battery. I have a “tethered” jailbreak. I cannot turn my phone back on until I plug it into my computer and reboot it through Redsn0w (my jailbreak program). If I had an “untethered” jailbreak, I could just turn my phone back on. The same scenario would be true if I let my battery run down to the point that the phone shut off. If you’re traveling and don’t have your computer with you when that happens (and it has a couple of times) you’re screwed and without a phone until you get back home to your computer. So….”untethered” is the best way to go.

    • jackie says:

      Unteathered jailbreak is the best.

      Unteathered jailbreak is up do not need a computer to start up your iDevice

      Teathered jailbreak you need a computer to start up your iDevice. this one also limits your uses with the jailbreak an iDevice.

      when i jailbreak i only use UNTEATHERED for the simple reason there are not any problems with your iDevice only capable to do way more with then manufaturerly.

      hope this helps:)

      Everything went fine with jailbreak. Cydia icon disappeared when had to “respring”. Performed a Restore on itunes and updated software to 6.1. Re-jailbroke the phone, everything fine for couple days until it had to Respring from Winterboard. Cydia gone agian. Noticed that Skype app wouldn’t work (never used it) after jailbreak, said that it wouldn’t operate with altered system software. After Cydia app missing, Skype doesn’t give the message any more.. Not sure if phone is still partially jailbroke or what. Also need help.

    • FYI says:

      Hmm, would you mind restoring again? And make sure you jailbreak first before restoring from back up data. And btw, if you encounter errors while installing cydia packages, it is not because of the jailbreak, maybe your wifi connection is weak, or the repo hosting the package you’re trying to install is having maintenance or is just having a lot of traffic because there are a lot of people using cydia simultaneously. Just letting you know. :)

  39. corz says:

    anyone know how to remove siri (assistant extensions etc)from ipad2 with ifunbox?i cant open cydia to remove it can anyone help with this problem all of wich started when I installed native siri pack from repo ..anyhelp would be greatly appreciated .. to the EVASI0N SQUAD thankyou n a 6.1.3 release would be awesome ..

    • FYI says:

      That’s tough. Honestly I would recommend you to just restore your device, and if ever restore like a new device, don’t restore from back where you already have that problem, it might happen again. That’s just me, if anyone has a better idea, be my guest. :)

  40. Peter says:

    Hello. I was just wondering if you could help me in any way with downgrading my iPod Touch4G from iOS 6.1.3 to 6.1.2. I have the .ipsw file, but not any blobs from the 6.1.2 version. The iPod has been jailbroken before when it was running 4.1 I think. Anyway, when I try to restore I just get 3194 Error code. I’ve tried editing the hosts, but then I just got error code 11. It would be great if I got some help, and yes, I know there is a tethered one for 6.1.3, but I don’t like tethered ones. Please help me in any way! Thank you so much in advance.
