    After installing some tweaks and apps I started to have problems. After an installation my iphone started to move alone and deleting files and copying texts from my iphone messages. I uninstalled it again but im afraid that someone is still able to login into my iphone. What can i do to prevent this?

    Does someone have an idea what happened?

    The only way your phone can be compromised if it is still in your possession is if you installed OpenSSH and failed to change the main and mobile passwords.

    Edit: This app you installed - based on your post looks like you pirated a paid app from a dubious source. Who knows what was inside it. Pay for your apps !

    Hi thank You for answering. I did not installed openssh. I don't even know what is it for.

    But why did my iPhone suddenly started to uninstall apps by itself and going into my messages and copying it. I saw while this was happening. and it really looked like someone using it remotely.

    See my edited response above. Seems you pirated an app from suspicious source. Perhaps a lesson learned ?

    Definetly pay for apps now that a restore will mean the end of your jailbreak!

    There's a tool in the works that would let you do this. It's not out yet.

    What if I want my jailbreak as new.. Like reinstalling the jailbreak for the purpose of erasing stuff that maybe was installed in the background without me knowing.

    can I do this?

    Then do a DFU restore and go back to stock iOS.

    That's the price you are going to pay now for doing what you did. You will not know if there is something left on your phone and the only way to guarantee it is removed, is to do a restore and lose your JB.

    It does but that is the only way to insure that you have nothing left that can harm you such as spyware left from installing what you did.

    If you don't restore, I would not use anything from iTunes to email accounts or anything else that uses passwords.

    You are a perfect example of someone who should never, absolutely never, jailbreak. Get back to stock iOS and stay there.

    It doesn't and it doesn't claim to.

    You really should restore your phone as new.

    The risk of having spyware on your phone right now isn't worth keeping a jailbreak.

    No - restore your phone and end this thread.

    I'll never understand people who can afford an iphone, yet vehemently refuse to pay for tweaks and apps. In case it wasn't apparent, apps and tweaks are relatively cheap.

    @ the thread starter - you reap what you sow.

    Or the fact there are millions of threads, sites, and tweets which make it clear installing pirated tweaks and apps can ruin your device and force a restore. Yet regardless, people still install them. Mind blowing. I know not all pirated software will cause stability issues, but with this topic so frequently discussed its mind blowing people still think it won't happen to them.

    Live and learn I guess. I'd much rather pay $1-$2 for the majority of paid tweaks/apps to ensure my jailbreak.

    Yep, it was a 99 cent app he pirated which caused this.
