    Hello I have an Iphone 6 plus for 2 years now and its starting to act up.

    So dont really want to but I just backed up my phone to itunes and about to restore it to factory.
    I'm on IOS 8.1.2 and I guess I'll have to update to 10.1.1 with that being said is there a JB for th IOS I haven't been on this site in like over a year so I have no clue what has been going on.,..


    Any help would be great thank you

    Not a JB for any iOS 10 versions yet. From reading here I understand Pangu are having problems keeping Cydia stable and not crashing all the time.

    You mean "about to Erase All Contents and Settings?"

    If THAT is what you mean…DON'T!

    Doing that on a jailbroken iDevice simply messes up the filesystem and causes a bootloop. You need to either do a DFU restore or simply plug your phone in to a computer running iTunes and do an upgrade/restore.

    If you restore with iTunes and go up to 10.1.1 you will not be able to JB it currently.

    Thank you and sorry that is what I meant is to just upgrade to 10.1.1 and why I'm really wanting to do this now is my phone is starting to have app crashes which I never had any issues in the passed, I'm gonna hold off a tad bit longer and deal with the crashes here and there, because I dont really want to loose my JB..

    Oh and the other issues that pisses me off is NO more storage I barely have any apps on my phone and only a few pics like maybe 100 and I'm down to like 400mg ay way I can clear up some room I can promise you my next Iphone comes Feb will be the 256gig..lol

    Try icleaner to see if it wipes away any junk data that accumulates.
    Also you can try removing some cydia hacks to see if those cause the crash issues.
    Also look into settings/general/storage/manage storage and see if there's any apps taking large amounts of data.
    If you do decide to go up to ios 10 make sure you hit restore on itunes and not update.

    Also when you instal iCleaner make sure you have 'unused cydia resources' ticked so that it clears out any crap that is not needed anymore.

    Works good.
    My previous iPhone had 4GB's worth of junk taking space and filling up my 16GB iPhone.
