Has anyone been having problems with viewing the settings menu on the iPhone after the jailbreak?

After every reboot if I try to go into settings it just hangs and force quits. But after awhile it just starts working again.

I haven't had that issue if it helps and I did the jailbreak last night and again today as I didn't want the 3k assistant.

I tried to run the jailbreak (unsuccessfully) several times last night (hung at 20% then I reinstalled iTunes 12.0.1 and tried again and it hung at 60% during 'injecting') and I now have the same issue with settings freezing upon open after restarting. So I would agree that it's something relating to the jailbreak but I'm not really sure beyond that.

If you did an OTA (over the air) update that will cause crashing. if thats the case, restore via downloading 8.3 with itunes. also try turning off wifi, and turning on airplane mode, then running taiG as admin, it worked for me.

I was already trying all of those things (wifi was off, airplane mode was on, passcode off, and find my iPhone disabled)... and yes this was a phone that was NOT OTA updated... I had it jailbroken on 8.1.2 and then DFU restored to 8.3 for my watch. :-/

I was hoping to get by jailbreaking without a full restore as that is the one thing left I hadn't done but it looks like thats the next thing to try.

I had issues running Taige. I had to run it 4 times. Every time it had and error it progressed a little further.

Same here. It still doesn't work. I at least got to 50% last night somehow and 40% today. Tried with two different computers. Maybe I'll just wait for the updated version of the JB.

You were right... I tried one more time (4th time in total, second time since installing iTunes 12.0.1) and it worked!

EDIT: This JB still has some issues... I'm no longer able to get into my (standard iOS) settings.app. It hangs on a white screen with a menu divider at the top and a white screen and then crashes back to the folder on springboard that its in.

I just had an essential upgrade pushed via Cydia (to upgrade cydia to 1.1.8)

I also just received an essential upgrade for TaiG jailbreak in Cydia that fixes the Cydia Substrate. Settings menus now work on my device. I have limited tweaks installed, but they seem to be working now since the TaiG upgrade this morning.

Anyone know of an alternative to MuteIcon? I emailed the developer and he is no longer updating it. It installs correctly on 8.3 and the settings menu works, but when in silent mode, there is no silent icon on the Status Bar. He said it is probably due to libStatusBar not being updated. Would really love to get a mute icon on my screen...what phone doesn't have one?!

Getting stuck at 60% following all the tips. I'm up to around 30 tries. For those of you who finally get it on multiple tries, are you just restarting to phone or the OS?

How exactly did your restart the jailbreak process in your own words? I think I'm in your footsteps right now.

For my 6+, 5S and iPad, I had to go through the first time and let it fail for each device. The second time, it completed the JB for each device.

How did you let it fail? It never actually fails for me so I end up restarting it when the spinning arrows disappear and it takes many reboots before the jailbreak actually indicates that it fails. If I let it go...it'll just stall and never fail. I let it sit for 8 hours this morning while I was out.

I've jailbroken my ipad2 and iphone 5 multiple times now. I have always followed this protocol and it has always worked like a charm, on the FIRST try:

(For Windows 7)
0.1 ***IMPORTANT first step, uninstall everything related to itunes by following this guide. Don't worry, your itunes settings will be saved.
1. update itunes to the latest version (for the 8.3 taig jailbreak, make sure you downgrade to itunes 12.0.1 Windows 32-bit here and 64-bit here)
2. Do a manual backup of your iphone to your computer in itunes. If you don't you will lose all your data and apps on your phone and will have to reinstall them all manually. Make sure you have transferred all your apps to itunes (I think this last part is important, but not sure).
3. Do a full/complete restore...restore to factory defaults and set up the phone as a new phone. This will update your phone to the latest iOS, so make sure the jailbreak you are going to use to designed for that version of iOS
4. Turn off Passcode and Find My iPhone on your phone
5. Run the jailbreak program (TaiG 2.1.2 for iOS 8.3)
6. Once jailbroken, open the new Cydia app on your phone
7. Let Cydia update itself and perhaps install a tweak or two to make sure it works
8. Once Cydia is updated, then "restore backup" in itunes to bring your phone back to the state it was before you restored to factory defaults.

I am so glad I have followed this advice I read on multiple blogs. There is a chance that the JB will work without doing the factory restore, but this works so well, I don't ever want to do it otherwise. I am not a power jailbreaker...I only do it perhaps 2-3 times a year. What will take the longest to download are the new version of iTunes and the iOS update, so it depends upon your internet speed available.

Make sure you turn off anti virus. I had the same error doing my wife's iPhone. Turned it off and it finally worked.

Have you seen this link?
https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/3aw4zb/discussion_centralized_information_post_for_the/

"Error -1101 (Stuck at 20%) Uninstall everything related to Apple on your computer (Apple Application Support, Apple Mobile Device Support, Apple Software Update, Bonjour, iTunes), reboot, and then install iTunes 12.0.1 from here. Select 32-bit/64-bit accordingly. If you need any help, follow this guide! Alternatively, try syncing your device to iTunes or switching USB ports."

I forgot to mention in my previous post about the proper removal of everything Apple/itunes before re-installing itunes. A major pain in the rear, but itunes does install correctly this way. Proper uninstall of itunes:

Did all this and it took a few tries and now its injecting at 60%... seems like its stuck though, how long does it normally take?

EDIT: Ok I give up after restarting so many times, will wait for an update or something.

It stuck on 20% and then rebooted. After doing this 3-4 times, Taig would display a message that the JB failed. I closed Taig and reopened and then it succeeded on each of my devices.

Did you ever get it to work? When I did it, it appeared "stuck" and 20% and then 60%. It stayed on each said percent perhaps 2-3 minutes each, but it eventually completed. Have you tried with a different cable? All of my cables can be touchy (the lightening connector doesn't seem as robust as the older 30-pin).

So when you start the jailbreak process, your phone has been updated/restored to ios 8.3 and was "set up as new phone"? Meaning, when you start the phone after the restore (not a restore from backup), it takes you through a whole process up setting up a new phone (language, system setup, icloud setup, etc, etc). If not, then you didn't set it up as a new phone.
