iPhone Jailbroken not Jailbroken?

Post Posted: Fri Mar 17, 2017 4:36 am

Morning,

Hopefully this is a quick and easy one to answer. I have an iPhone 4S. It has the Cydia App installed, which should mean its Jailbroken however all the tools are showing it as not Jailbroken and I don't appear to be getting emails, which is a tell tale sign.

I'm a little confused. Could it have been jailbroken but left the Cydia App? Is that possible?

I'm probably missing something obvious! Neutral


Thanks,
4R

The latest jailbreak for 9.3 (I think) was a soft jailbreak in that if the phone was switched off then you had to re-run the pangu jailbreak app.

The procedure was

run the pangu jailbreak app
hit start within the app
lock the screen
wait for re-spring
open cydia and all should be OK

have a look and see if you have the pangu jailbreak app - this might be the issue.

It also relied on developer signage to run -- and those are shortlived (7 days?). If that signature expires, the app won't run.

No the original signature still works absolutely fine - jailbroke my test phone months ago and just tried it and it still works.

You'll need to install afc2 on the phone via cydia first.

Thank for the response. This might help explain why its not being seen as jailbroken.

I have not started messing with the apps and settings as its evidential still.

Thanks,
