Hello all. I am new to this forum bc this is the first issue I have ever had jailbreaking. I have a iPhone 6 on vzw. I was using the phone today and the CallBar tweak was acting up. I tried reinstalling it and now my phone gets to the Apple logo, goes dark for a sec, back to the logo, etc. I can enter Safe Mode by holding Vol up. I removed CallBar completely, but it has not fixed the problem. I tried turning off Touch ID & Passcode without luck. Obviously, I do not want to restore and lose my jailbreak.

Is there something that can help that I just do not know about? I only know the two methods I tried. I saw one article about holding a camera flash to the proximity sensor, but did not attempt it.

Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Reinstall Callbar (if you'd like to keep Callbar and only uninstalled to try and fix this then leave it and respring). See if that fixes it.

If not, uninstall Callbar again. Sometimes stuff does not get correctly uninstalled.

Failing that you can try iCleaner Pro. Boot into Safe Mode. Open Cydia and add the following source:

http://exile90software.com/cydia/beta

Install iCleaner Pro. Using iCleaner's left most tab you can find the area to disable Cydia tweaks. Disable a range of tweaks (do NOT disable the Mobile Safe Mode Substrate tweak!) and reboot to see if your problem goes away.

Keep on this until it does. Then you can slowly renable tweaks a few at a time using iCleaner Pro until you find the problem tweak.

This has saved my bacon more than once.

If none of that works then you can try Semi Restore. That's a Cydia tweak that will remove ALL your installed tweaks leaving your phone as if you had just jailbroken with nothing installed.

Hope that helps!

Not looking good. I turned off all the tweaks and still got the boot loop. I am going to give the Semi Restore a try once I find it. Is it also in a different repo? When I search for it, nothing comes up.

enter substrate disabled mode and uninstall cydia substrate, it'll uninstall all your tweaks too

see if you can boot up normally like that. if not, then you can give semi-restore a try

Sorry, I've never used Semi-Restore.

Try here, I guess it's not a tweak.

Thank you so much for your help. I went over your post again and I reinstalled CallBar and know I am good to go again. I was just about to give Semi Restore a shot...very glad I didn't. Thanks again, glad to be part of the forum. You guys rock!
