    I'm sure I'll get a lot of flak for this. I was (and still) on 9.3.3. Effectively jailbroke my 6s +.

    Before I continue I am a newbie. I had and iPhone 4 in the past (jailbroken), but always found my way back to android until now with the 6s plus.

    Now I'm sure I screwed something up here, and probably screwed my self until a new jailbreak releases.

    However, the other day I tried installing Activator, and went into a boot loop. I let my phone sit for over an hour to no avail. At which point, I restarted my phone, ran PP, and went into a bootloop again.

    I plugged around on the interwebs, and tried some things, which still havent worked. One place stated to restore through iTunes, however it wanted me to update to 9.3.4, and I couldnt bypass that. Another site stated to restore through the phone (which removed the PP app), inwhich I had to redownload. After downloading it again, it just crashes.

    Im now at the point where running PP on my pc, asks for my apple id (which I was sketchy about), but still entered it anyways, yet it gives me an error. Previous to this I was able to reinstall the PP app and gain (somewhat) jailbreak. By somewhat, I mean I was able to open Cydia, however, when I did, I got error messages and for the life of me I cannot remember what they said. However I do know, that when cydia opened, I was unable to search for anything, let alone browse what was installed to then uninstall Activator.

    I am assuming I am SOOL, but any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You said you "restored through the phone"?
    If you did an erase all content and settings then your JB is done and all you can do is restore to the latest stock 9.3.5 and wait for the next JB.

    Yes I did. So does that mean I'm SOL?. Like I stated I'm still on 9.3.3, and can get PP installed (yet now it's creating a frustration).

    So I'm f*****, until a new jb comes out. Great.

    Pretty much.
    Take it as a lesson learned and never ever do an erase all on a JB device.
    That's rule number 1 in jailbreaking.

    For future jailbreak reference, Saurik introduced Non Mobile Substrate Mode (Safe Mode) with Cydia Substrate 0.9.3997 in April 2012. That was with iOS 5.

    I bring this up because since that time you have always been able to hold volume up to disable all tweaks when booting. For this current jailbreak, doing that immediately after rejailbreaking would have put you in Safe Mode and you would have been able to open Cydia and uninstall Activator.

    But as AJ has stated, if you Erased All Contents and Settings you have hosed your jailbreak. Which is why you got all those errors the one time you were able to get Cydia to open. So, nothing to do but restore at this point and wait for the next jailbreak.

    That really sucks man. A run of the mill bootloop that could have been rectified by going to Safe Mode and uninstalling and instead you're out your jailbreak.

    PS. In regards to the Apple ID, the general suggestion for this jailbreak was to create a burner Apple ID and not supply your real Apple ID.

    Balls. I guess that's what I get for resorting to google, rather than coming to the forums first. Learning curve as stated above I guess. Quite unfortunate haha!

    Its always best to ask first and act after once you know what you're doing.
    Instead of trying a bunch of things first and then finding out you hosed your JB.

    An other advice for new jailbreakers, the first tweak you should install IMO is mikoto from Karen's repo. This tweak will block iOS update so you can't update by mistake, and it will also block the possibility to erase all data telling you its for the safety of your jailbreak so you know you shouldn't do this from the start.

    There is also ResetAllKiller for those that want a more lightweight tweak. It just grays out (disables) the reset all and erase all buttons

    Yea I lost my jailbreak on 9.0.2 and was hosed until this one. I'm not sure what I did wrong but I know that I didn't restore my phone as new and jailbreaking from that new state. Because of that (I believe) caused my phone to not accept the JB properly and Apple had, at that time, just stopped signing that version of iOS. I was screwed.
