    Well, I'm kind of stuck, and wanted to see if anyone would be willing to point me in the right direction. I'm on an iPad Pro 12.9 inch, iOS 9.3.3 and the certificate expired. I use Luca's JB me page (https://jbme.qwertyoruiop.com) to TRY and re-initialize the JB, but, I can't get it to work. I close the page, turn off the iPad, and it's just a constant dark screen. Long story short, I just installed a tweak (TouchBar) and I'm assuming that messed up everything. I have no idea really how to uninstall it since I can't get the JB to initialize so I can get into Cydia. Everything was working fine until I installed this tweak. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Change the date on your iPad in settings to any month before April and then go to the pangu app and jailbreak. It should work then you change the date back.

    That didn't work either. I read I can use iFunBox to uninstall the tweak so I might try that. I can't get into substrate mode either. Almost looks as if I'm screwed. Tried the power plus volume up option and that also didn't work.

    Never mind. Figured it out. Just had to install iFunBox and remove the tweak. Even though the screen was black and nothing would happen, it was still in safe mode. So if anyone comes across this thread, it seems as if there is a bug for TouchBar for iOS 9.3.3 for the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. Don't install unless it's fixed! Just sayin'! Thanks though EM2013. Appreciate the reply.

    I bought that tweak over the weekend on the fact that none of the tweaks I had installed were on it's list for incompatibility.

    Instant bootloop. Fortunately, I'm on 9.0.2 so I was able to reboot into Safe Mode and uninstall it.

    EDIT: TouchBar broke my JB on 9.3.3. I ended up in a bootscreen forever every time I tried to re-jb.. could not open Cydia until I tried opening from search instead of tapping its icon. Then I could boot into safe mode (incognito no notice screen) Once I got into Lydia I uninstalled all four of the packages that came as part of the TouchBar tweak. Still was unable to exit safe mode as there was no popup after boot. After a few attempts at jailbeakme.com I am jailbroken again. This is a short version of what was actually me crapping my pants for almost an hour. I was close to restoring as new.. glad I checked here first to see I'm not the only one who got through a bad experience with that particular tweak.. That I don't even need!

    Bug is on iPhone 6 running 9.3.3 as well. Whats up with MR spellcheck changing Cydia to Lydia in the jailbreak forums anyway? What is the world coming to??.
