Hello,

I have installed an app "Call Blocklist" from cydia. When it asked to restart springboard, the apple logo came and instantly went off to bring the Apple Sign up window. After signup (or skip signup), a screen came that says "Start Using Iphone".
All these Signup window, and start using iphone window should have come upon new install of the iOS. And when I click the button "Start Using iphone", it goes to homescreen but springboard instantly gets restarted and shows apple logo repeating same process.

I wanted to restore using ipsw file (I have version 6.1), but itunes doesnt let restore the file with the copy of firmware file i got.
Anyhelp will highly be appreciated

Thanks

Hold volume up while booting. It should allow you onto the home screen by disabling all your tweaks. Once there, uninstall the offending tweak and reboot the device

Beat me to it :)

It's likely to be a conflict between two tweaks rather than the new tweak itself. If you know what the other conflicting tweak is then contact the devs of both tweaks and hopefully they'll do an update.
