    How often does this happen to you guys? Seems like its an ios 7 issue. All of my ios 7 devices do it from time to time. Basically, when the phone is booting, the screen will turn weird colors, and then reboot again, and when you go into diagnostics in settings it says "boot failure"

    That's cause by the pangue jailbreak. The executable for the jailbreak that patches into the kernel crashes and caused the device to reboot.

    From what another poster said it must be your jail break.

    I reboot my iOS devices seldom but have never had any problems with the reboot.

    Do you have any launch daemon tweaks installed, such as f.lux, remote messages or AutoBrightness? The ssh launch daemon has NOT caused any problems, thankfully.

    I don't get any weird colors but my 5s sometimes gets stuck rebooting and respringing when any of the above 3 tweaks are enabled in launchctl. When it happens, it'll reboot/respring 3, 4, 5 times in a row before it succeeds. It's happened like this since the 7.0 EvasiOn days and continued through 7.1.2 Pangu. It's really annoying especially since I just figured out what causes it about two weeks ago and I sometimes have to resping my device 100 times a day while developing.

    I now try to remember to run launchctl unload on those tweaks and disable them any time I need to reboot or respring. I have not had a single issue when they are disabled.

    Yes, it happens often to me when I reboot

    I'm pretty sure it's the PanGu jailbreak since it did not happen with the evasi0n jailbreak but seeing that it only has boot failured only a maximum of 3 times before properly booting up, I didn't worry about it too much

    If it were to stay in a constant boot loop, then i would be worried

    Oh, that's some interesting information. Where did you get this from?

    I read the crash log when it happened to my phone once.

    It happened to me last week and I saw this in my log to. I assumed it was my Mophie case at first.

    Interesting. As much as i appreciate a 7.1 jailbreak, and i appreciate them not wasting other better exploits, in wish they would have written it better. Oh well :p

    Im surprised another hacker group like the evaders did not repackage it and clean it up a little and remove the chinese stuff from it.

    For those that have decided to restore and rejailbreak using pangu 1.2, does this version of pangu fix the boot failure problems?

    It uses an expired certificate vulnerability of questionable legality (in the US) and which the others consider unreleasable.

    I see.
    That makes sense then why others wont want to touch it and get involved in possible lawsuits with Apple.

    Never encountered this, I'd rejailbreak and set up as new, not restoring a back up.

    Restoring from a backup or restoring as new has no effect on an iOS device crashing on boot if jailbroken with pangu.

    I am OCD and like to take extra precautions to avoid any issues.

    Have you been diagnosed as OCD by a licensed psychiatrist?
