My iPhone 8 is jailbroken on 12.1.1 b3. Everything was working fine and yesterday it randomly rebooted. When it got back up, it wasnt jailbroken. So ofc, I ran unc0ver to jailbreak it again, to get my tweaks and theme back up, but sadly it didnt worked. It says jailbreaking successful and its rebooting (spinning wheel) but nothing happens, it still unjailbroken. What should I do at this point?

Keep trying. Sometimes it takes a few tries and you do need to be patient for the spinning wheel. Try installing b43. Also, it may have rebooted because you only have 7 days and then you have to re-sign it. You should install ReProvision so that you can set it to re-sign it automatically

Yeah, most semi-untethered jailbreaks I've used can take a few tries to successfully re-jailbreak

Did the thing with cydia impactor with the latest unc0ver version, and I tried running the app 2-3 times, still nothing

Your jailbreak may be damaged. Not sure what to do after a damaged jailbreak besides redoing the OS on the phone. There may be other ways though.

I went in to the settings on the uncover app and unchecked load tweaks and the app worked.. hopefully this will help.

There might be instances that you need safe mode to fix certain problems, if substrate is not installed you could end up in a boot loop, also in the screenshot you mentioned it says that removing substrate removes all tweaks, that is not true, some tweak do not use substrate and are persistent, if one of those acts up and you cannot go in to safe mode you also might end up in a bootloop.

You do realise safe mode reinstalls itself when reload Cydia is ticked

When I uncheck load tweaks, it lets me jailbreak, and I can open cydia. So I tried uninstalling some tweaks, and then I checked load tweaks. Still nothing. Spinning wheel, then apple logo and stock iOS

Try again with Reinstall Cydia and Reset Cydia Cache enabled?

Not sure if you have this resolved, however was lucky to receive a response from GeoSn0w on Twitter with the same issue, his response was:

"Disable Reload System Daemons" in the unc0ver settings and re-jailbreak.

Hope this helps
