    Dear All,

    Please help.

    I previously updated my iphone to IOS 7.1.1 then jailbroken using Pangu 1.1.0. I have now updated my iPhone to 7.1.2 and tried to re-jailbreak (again with same package Pangu 1.1.0) but Pangu now says that my device is already jailbroken. When i did the update to 7.1.2 the cydia icon disappeared but some of the other tweaks still remained. I have now deleted all the tweaks and I have reset both my computer and iphone but when i run Pangu it still says that it is still jailbroken (i cant move on from there - jailbreak button greyed out).

    I have also restored my last back up and Pangu still says its jailbroken

    Has this happened to anyone else?
    Anyone know how to fix this?
    Is there another jailbreak for IOS 7.1.2?

    iPhone: 4s
    IOS: 7.1.2 (updated through iTunes)

    Thanks in advance, all help very welcome !!!

    You need to RESTORE using iTunes. Then jailbreak. Then restore your backup. Do not update or restore from back. Just RESTORE then jailbreak then restore your backup.

    You should be good to go after that.

    OK, I have carried out your instructions and all has gone well and appears to have worked...thank you

    However i keep getting a warning every now and again..usually when I restart, warning me that 'storage is almost full. You can manage your storage in settings'. I have checked and I have 11.5 GB out of 16 GB left. So that's clearly not right and I don't have lots of data on there either.

    Any ideas how to get rid of that annoying warning?

    Thanks again

    That doesn't sound right. I read such a message, too, but only during the jailbreak process. It's probably part of the exploits that are used.

    Maybe you should ask on reddit in the subreddit jailbreak.

    Yes thats right it did also say something similar during the jailbreak process. When i jailbroken 7.1.1 i never had any of these problems.

    What is reddit ?

    That's one of the 2 community links Cydia shows on its start page.

    That's great! Glad I could help.

    Yes now that you mention it, I also had that "storage almost full" alert pop up on my device. In fact, I think it popped up on my 5s and mini retina after jailbreaking 7.1.2. I just tapped OK and I don't think it ever returned. I think it might be common. But once you tap ok once or twice it shouldn't come back. I don't think it's anything to worry about. If it keeps reappearing or if you suffer stability or performance issues then that's a totally different story. Be cautious of that but otherwise I think you're good to go!

    Ok have now found the answer. Here's an update
    At the time of jail-breaking I hadn't used Cydia as I was getting this problem and wanted to sort it out first.
    I realised that I hadn't run Cydia yet and have now done so and the problem seems to have been cured !!!
    So looks like it was the fact that I hadn't run Cydia that was causing the problem.
    Thanks again

    Yeah I think the 'low storage' message happened to me after it rebooted after the initial jailbreak had completed. I ran cydia after and everything was fine and haven't had an issue since.

    Good to know.
    I thought the first thing most do after the JB is open cydia.
    Not everyone does it I guess:D

    Normally I would agree with you, but in this case I wanted to make sure all was up and running first as I was having a problem that i hadn't encountered before. All good now though !!

    Try doing an iTunes DFU restore of 7.1.x (which ever you want).. hopefully this will truly give you all the GBs, fresh, to use on your device.

    I couldn't jailbreak using the windows Pangu for 7.1.2 but the OSX Pangu worked perfectly.
