    Hello,

    I tried to install the Cydia updates this morning. My phone rebooted automatically and now it's stuck on the apple logo flashing. I have already tried to hardboot and that didn't work. Please help!

    For whatever reason, try multiple hard resets. 3 worked for me.

    You still have this problem after the recent Cydia evasi0n update?

    Hmm. Maybe restore and re-jailbreak with the newest version of evasi0n from the website.

    I don't know what else your options are.

    Try safe mode.

    While plugged in to the charger,

    Hard reset - Press and hold home + power for 15 sec, then hold vol +

    OR

    SSH and type "killall -SEGV SpringBoard"

    That's what worked for me.

    Happened to me when I tried installing winterboard. Took 3 hard resets to get past the apple.

    Apple logo just fades out and the phone reboots

    Im having the same issue, I jailbroke my iphone 4. Only thing installed was the update for cydia, then winterboard. once I slide to power off my phone it never turns back on. I tried many resets. Turns out Im going to restore it right now to factory. :mad:

    just do the first option then. The second requires (i think) having installed a ssh utility in the first place after jailbreak and before your problem

    ssh to your iphone using putty (windows) or terminal (max/linux).

    login with "root" as username and "alpine" as password (unless you changed it).

    then use the command I gave earlier.

    I tried the first option, but my phone just sits at the apple logo flashing every 10 seconds. It looks like it's going to boot, but then the apple logo appears again.

    did you try plugging your phone into your computer and hard boot?

    yeah, I saw a few updates in cydia too (a few looked a bit "shifty") and I purposely didn't update in fear of this happening to mine
