Reboot Loop after iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak

Pangu has given us a huge surprise by releasing a iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak . This move from the team was unexpected, as the common opinion of everybody was that there would be no iOS 9.x.x jailbreak until iOS 10 release month. Nevertheless, jailbreak lovers are very happy with the release and are jailbreaking their iOS devices to install their favourite jailbreak tweaks, as Cydia has also been updated to support iOS 9.3.3. However, most of the tweak developers still didn’t get enough time to provide iOS 9.3.3 support in their tweaks. Such tweaks, if installed on iOS 9.x.x , could misbehave and cause the device to Freeze or go into Reboot loops.

Solve Endless Reboot Loop With Volume Up Trick :

Many users find that their device is behaving weird and is rebooting continuously after jailbreaking. Such issues are mostly caused by incompatible or broken jailbreak tweaks. A hard reboot does not solve such problems. In order to fix the reboot loop issue, press and hold the Volume Up button while your iOS device is booting up until you see the Lock screen again. You can now launch Cydia and delete the tweak that is causing the device to misbehave. In case the Volume Up button isn’t working, you can use the Clicker button (not Volume up) of the earphone or headset.
