    I have the 1 year receipt, so I know that's not the problem. But one night my phone rebooted and it went back to the stock iOS, and I had the reboot fix installed (from reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/4wk3qq/release_ios_9_reboot_fix/). I tried to re JB but it didn't work, and I also tried to turn off the passcode, turn on airplane mode, and turn off the notifications, and none of these worked, though the bytafont font is still in use on my phone. When I tried re JB with the passcode off and holding the volume button down, it went back to stock, but had the icon masks and bytafont working. Usually when i try to re JB it is on my custom bootlogo for a couple minutes, and flashes once, and then goes back to the stock boot logo. Big thanks to anyone that could help me!

    Restore and jailbreak again, that's you best option.

    I would, but I don't want to lose the packages I installed (there are a lot) and I was stupid and forgot to install PKGBackup. I also never made a cydia account, so is there anyone for me to see which tweaks and themes I have downloaded, or is that not possible.

    These type of threads are becoming a daily thing lately.
    This JB is by far the most unstable and one with many similar issues reported but a lot of people where the JB stops working and lots of more issues that either need an itunes restore or a cydia impactor reset and redo in order to work again.
    Just pointing out the obvious to some that were raving over this semi tethered JB calling it the most reliable and solid JB and urging others to leave their true untethered JB's for this.

    I have my 6S and 6S+ on this jailbreak on 9.3.3. I've had no problems with it so far. Funny thing is, just after I read this, I watched my 5S on 9.0.2 jailbreak, respring all on it's own while sitting on the table.

    I still have the 5S, 6 and iPad Mini 2 on 9.0.2 and will leave them on that firmware until a JB comes out for 10, if and when it does.

    The random night reboots are not a JB issue but an apple ios issue that has been happening to also stock ios devices up to before 9.3.3 was released.
    Here's a fix for it via cydia ;)

    Glad you're not having any issues with this JB but many people post about problems daily here and tons of threads on reddit also. This JB is flimsy and unstable and many experience it just stop working and not JB again after a reboot and many many more problems.

    I don't think it's new. I think the iOS 7/8/9 jailbreaks from the Chinese groups all relied on a race condition. But because it was an untethered jailbreak, the device would just crash and reboot, and attempt to jailbreak again (all this done automatically, as opposed to manually now)

    Although, I'm not sure if there's any race condition in the 9.3.3 jailbreak

    But I fortunately haven't had any problems with the 9.3.3 jailbreak besides the certificate not staying trusted/verified. Seems to be a problem with the English pangu app and its 1 year certificate embedding feature

    I just installed the Chinese version using ifunbox, which is already pre-signed with the 1 year certificate. Then installed the English version, embed the 1 year certificate, and haven't had any problems with the English pangu app since

    I guess installing the Chinese version with the pre-signed 1 year certificate fixes the problem with the pangu app embedding the certificate
