    ive been stuck on this message for a while,

    i downloaded the mac version and everything was going ok, the program detected my iphone 4s 16gb 5.0.1 and then i clicked "jailbreak"
    i waited for like 2 hours and the bar didnt move a mm since...

    so i unplugged it and re did everything except for now the program said that i already tried to jailbreak and it failed, so it rebooted my device and everything worked the same again, except this time i waited for 1 hour and tried to jailbreak again

    so now everytime i plug my iphone in it gives me the jailbreak message and it "fixex it" then it tells me to unplug and then plug it in and when i do it gives me the same jailbreak message...its an endless cycle (help)...


    ps. i backed up everything on my icloud in itunes, so i was wondering if i do a total wipe on the iphone will this work? or would i wipe out for no reason?

    also will the backup save all my texts and stuff?

    i took the chance and deleted everything on my phone, i pretty much set it up as a new iphone, then i tried to jailbreak and Voila!!! it jailbroke flawlessly in less than 2 minutes literally...

    ----------

    i do have a question though, now that i literally reset everything on my device if i do a restore from icloud to get my stuff back will it delete cydia?

    No it will leave cydia on there after putting back your back-up :)

    Have fun with jail-broken device!

    as the poster above me said, nope, cydia will stay. Just restating it so you will get this as a notification
