    Hey there everyone, I have a huge problem!

    I was playing around in iFile for a while, you know, customizing some themes, changing the status bar, small stuff. When I was done and wanted to respring the iPhone just went into boot mode.

    Now all there is is the apple logo and a loading bar! The bar doesn't fill up, it's just empty and when I try to connect it to iTunes it doesn't recognize the device!

    Please someone help me! :( Do I really need to buy a new phone now or did anyone out there have the same problem and knows what to do?

    Put it in DFU mode and restore. Note this will restore it to the latest version of iOS for your device, likely 6.1.3. iOS 6.1.3 is currently not jailbreakable.

    Most of us know exactly what to do !
    Do not go mucking up your system files then expect the firmware to work correctly.

    Of course you do not need to buy a new phone, but you will have to restore to current firmware thus losing your jailbreak.

    I sincerely hope you learned a lesson here.

    Losing a jb over a theme. :rolleyes: Clearly it was not 'small stuff'. Lesson learned, hopefully.

    Never mess with system files unless you know exactly what you're doing, especially when there's no jailbreak available for the most recent firmware.

    All I did was changing the status bar in the theme. I wanted the status bar to look the same on every app. Meaning I added the same status bar three times, but changed the name beforehand. I've done this several times before and it always worked perfectly. I don't know how that could have happened and if I knew that it could actually turn out like this, I of course wouldn't have done it in the first place. I didn't think it would have such an effect. Or do you guys think that there's another reason to why it crashed so badly?

    Seems pretty obvious you deleted a required system file(s).
    Unless you saved/backed up the originals (which you should always do by the way) you will have to restore.
