    sorry for the noob question...just curious what is the difference. How do you respring?

    Update: figured it out...reboot is just a reset, but respring rebuilds your cache file so you can see your apps that are manually added via ssh...installed "Respring" from cydia.

    Respringing is is basically restarting your SB (springboard) which re-launches your apps and some other processes..

    If you've jailbroken one of your devices and wish to respring, install SBSettings from Cydia..

    There will not be an icon for it..to launch SBSettings, simply swipe your finger along the top of your screen from left to right..it will pop up a tiny window, on which you will Find the option 'respring'.

    Hope this helps :)

    You'll typically have to respiring when updating core files through cydia/ssh as well

    Press the power button and the home button at the same time for 7 seconds - this will force it to shut down. Then you should be able to boot normally (press and hold the power button for a few seconds)

    Isn't respringing when the Amish take a year off to get high and have random sex?
