    Backed up phone.
    Set up phone as new with clean 8.1.
    Problems jailbreaking.
    Numerous complications.
    Finally jailbroke.
    Restore from backup.
    Wait forever.
    Set up Apple Pay (again).
    Enter all kinds of crap again (touch ID, passwords, etc).
    Phone app crashes and does not accept any input.
    Troubleshoot not effective.
    Restart phone.
    Oh, no. Stuck in boot mode (Apple logo on black screen).
    Hard reset.
    Same thing.
    Hard reset.
    Same thing. (repeat)
    Restore as new.
    Jailbreak now gone.
    Restore from backup.
    Set up Apple Pay and same crap again as above.
    Phone works with no jailbreak.
    2 Hours gone for the same phone I had in the beginning.
    Don't want to go through all that again.
    The End.

    I'm so dumb I will probably try again some other time.

    Also, if you do try it again, do an encrypted iTunes backup so that your restore will be much easier.

    Same thing happened to me. Everything was fine then I rebooted, white screen with apple wouldn't go away no matter what! That was a dfu restore, jailbreak and set up as new. Did exactly the same thing the next day and has been flawless for the past week...

    I'm thinking I'm gonna do it again since the Mac version dropped and I've been testing the waters with numerous tweaks. I found my setup:)

    When the jailbreak was released it was clearly stated that it was meant for developers. It wasn't stable. We all knew this. Had you would have waited, then you're boot loop problem would have been nonexistent.

    In other words......Cry me a river.

    Read before posting. This happened to him/her yesterday or today. They created another thread also asking for help.

    I jailbroke after Cydia was packaged in with pangu. Think it was 1.2.0 windows release. So I waited also!

    The boot loop happened to more than just the 2 of us if you frequent these or other forums you would know.

    And you seem like the type of the person that "knows" from your comment in which this case you clearly do not.

    If you didn't update to 8.1 via OTA then you could have JB'ed without having to do any of the above. Just do a backup and then turn off touchid, passcode and find my iphone. Then just jailbreak it. That's what I did. I had to run the jailbreak app twice because it didn't do it the first time but other than that had no problem what so ever.

    no problems here what so ever, stable as a rock, no battery drain and no wifi issues.

    Did you restore OTA or via itunes?
    Also using a backup brings in all the old plist files which might even date back to or 7.x JB causing problems, especially ig heavy theming was applied.

    Best is to start as new and from scratch, might take a bit longer but will get you a stable JB.

    It wouldn't jb until I restored the phone as new from iTunes. Then I jailbroke, but encountered the issue with crashing phone app. I don't want to do many tweaks, may not be worth it. I'm sure I'll do it at some point again.

    You should take you're own advice. If you both had boot loops it was you're fault for not using the updated fixed pangu that was release well before yesterday. The boot loop issue was well documented an explained a week after the first pangu release.

    And since you think you know what type of person I am, I am one who uses sound logic and doesn't make excuses for my own mistakes when I should have known better. Unlike you're attempt, to sound like you know what you're talking about, in which this case you clearly do not.

    I've said my peace. No need to reply to this. Rest assured, I won't be responding to ether one of you.

    The bootloop issue that was fixed in the past seems like a different one than the ones people were experiencing with the latest releases, and likely why the OP had trouble too.

    You have to turn all security features off, restore, setup as new, *then turn passcode on*, then run cydia for the first time. It'll setup the files and then you reboot and everything should be fine.

    Like I said. You can't read! You didn't have anything to add to this thread to begin with and you still haven't. Yes you use "sound logic" but quirks happen with software and are many variances, devices, computers so on. For you just to come up and state the BASICS is truly just a nuisance to read. Your sound logic is sickening.

    Thank you for giving your word and not responding anymore lol.

    That doesn't sound good (OP) at all.

    It would be interested to be able to know what caused the problems you had with it.

    It's safe to say at this point if the jailbreak doesn't work it's user error, i.e. not turning passcode off, not turning find my iPhone off etc.

    I was thinking the same thing. I've done 8 phones this past week, and not a single error. Go figure.

    Restoring from backup could be your problem. The backup could contain plist files from a previous jailbreak than may not play nicely with the new ios/jailbreak. I always start afresh with a new jailbreak and never had a problem.
