    Ive been scouring the internet for days, but to no avail. I've tried everything to restore my iphone. I bought a new phone off ebay and mistakenly erased all content and settings when it was jailbroken, yes I now realize that was a mistake. It did not brick it or anything actually, and it still starts up but now cydia won't open. It will flash and exit. I tried to rejailbreak it, but it says its semi tethered now. I've tried tinyumbrella and redsnow, but nothing has worked. Any help would be amazing! I have shsh for 6.0.1 and 5.1.1, but I assumed it wouldn't restore because of the unsigned ipsws, any way around this? Thanks again.

    It's not going to restore to any iOS other than 6.0.3 because that is the last one out. You will have to load a custom firmware and have had your SHSH blobs saved to go to anything else at this point.

    So what about can I rejailbreak it, or fix cydia? Because the phone still works, cydia just won't boot. So im not sure if its still completely jailbroken

    I don't believe redsnow works to get the 4s back to ios5.x from 6.x.

    What does evasi0n do when you try to jailbreak with it now?

    Evasi0n says that it is already jailbroken, so I can't rejailbreak it.

    Actually it says error: your device appears to be using a semi-tether jailbreak. Please use the Evasion untether package from cydia instead. But, my cydia is not working

    It's my understanding that if you erased all content and settings all you can do is restore.

    That's one reason there's a tweak to keep that from being available.

    Try these:


    How do I install Cydia after uninstalling it?

    Perhaps you ignored a warning, or perhaps a friend decided to annoy you by uninstalling Cydia on your device? You have some options for installing it again:

    Use redsn0w: You may be able to reinstall Cydia using redsn0w. Download and open the latest version of redsn0w, click "Jailbreak", make sure that "Install Cydia" is the only checkbox checked, and let that process complete.

    Use iFile: If that doesn't work (such as if redsn0w gives you error messages), another easy option is to use iFile, if you already have it installed on your device. In Mobile Safari, go to this URL: http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.1.8_iphoneos-arm.deb - and use iFile's option to install it.

    Use the command line: You may be able to SSH into your device and reinstall Cydia. You need to already have OpenSSH installed on your device, along with APT 0.6 or 0.7 (which are dependencies of various packages including CyDelete). After SSHing into your device: type apt-get install cydia and then type su mobile -c uicache (or reboot your device) and you should have Cydia again.


    I'm not sure if you have SSH available or not.
