    I've downloaded igotya yesterday, and I made a huge mistake. I didn't have any lock passcode for my phone before installing the software. I created one, but haven't updated it in igotya app, and I'm currently locked in safe mode. I was able to disable/delete igotya through SBSettings, but all my contacts/pictures/text messages and most of my apps are hidden.

    Is there any method to restore them except for restoring my phone through iTunes which would mean loosing my JB?

    I do have shsh for 6.1.2; however, I get error 11 when trying to restore it with tinyumbrella (I don't think these shsh are from cydia. I guess tinyumbrella saved them for me back then, so they should be legit).

    Anyway I think I'm screwed. Any suggestions?

    What device?

    Also, have you tried booting in safe mode and then disable the tweak or uninstall it?

    Do not try to restore a iphone 5 to 6.1.2 even if you have good SHSHs as many of those save by cydia are not good. Good SHSHs or not it will not work. At this point your only restore option that will work is going to 6.1.3 since that is the only version apple is signing and yes doing this will end your jailbreak for maybe a long long time.

    Therefore try everything else BUT restoring to avoid further fur-balling your phone

    2 hours on Google and I gave up. There is not a good way to restore everything. The best way is SSH, but that didn't work for half of the stuff. I restored to 6.1.4, I guess I will live without SBSettings.
