    Are you on the new jailbreak?

    If so, you have to remember that it's Semi-Untethered. Every time you reboot you have to rejailbreak with the Pangu app.

    Try opening the Pangu App and see if you see the screen that says Jailbreak Succeeded or the one that has the Start Button.

    Interesting, I just went to make a screen shot for you, and found myself in the unjailbroken state. I tried the pangu app three times in a row and it did not work, so I used the Chinese one, and that worked. I kept it around as a failsafe. Good thing I did.

    eyoungren is right. Everytime your phone reboots, you have to rerun the jb. At least you can do it directly on the device and not have to connect it to a computer to do it.

    enqelke, I'm guessing you didn't read my original message, or my reply to him fully :) I am fully aware it is a semi-jb. The problem is the pangu app just crashes back to home. I was able to resolve by deleting pangu app and repushing it with impactor.

    I think I need to try all this, too. I tried to get Winterboard and after a respring I don't see it anywhere and neither Cydia or one other jailbreak app stays open. I am on an SE, and on 9.3.2. I guess I better go to .3. Anyway, I have the chinese PP and pushing the circle again doesn't resolve this. Is there a known issue with Winterboard?

    When you install Winterboard, the phone reboots, which means you have to rejailbreak.
    Why don't you try Anemone, which doesn't need rebooting after install, only respring.
