Fixing the Cydia endless respring problem
« on: August 25, 2013, 10:52:05 PM »
Updated: Cydia 1.1.9 fixes this problem. Please install Whited00r 7 (http://www.whited00r.com/installation) that includes the last Cydia version.


This is an extremely basic tutorial to fix the problem that occurs when you click "restart spring board" in older versions of Cydia. Many people have experienced this issue so you may reference them to this guide if you see anyone in need of assistance regarding this.



1. Step One
If you click restart spring board and your device enters into a state in which the respring logo appears but does not stop, simply hold the home and sleep button to restart the device.



2. Avoiding this issue in the future

This part is relatively simple as well. All you must do is press the home button when the restart springboard screen appears, and respring via an external method like SB settings or the respring option provided in some version of the whited00r settings app.

I think the buttons are done server side as it runs a JavaScript script to do the respring

This is an extremely basic tutorial to fix the problem that occurs when you click "restart spring board" in older versions of Cydia. Many people have experienced this issue...

Thanks but that is already in the Whited00r 6 - FAQ & Troubleshooting - READ BEFORE POSTING! under the chapter Whited00r 6 Known Bugs and it's also a sticky in the Troubleshooting forum: [Solved] Cydia Respring or "Restart SpringBoard" causes Infinite Loop?

So it's not only "Many people have experienced this issue" it's a bug in the current Cydia version in all iOS under 4 which includes Whited00r. :/

We wrote to Saurik the dev of Cydia to no avail so far.
