    You will no longer need to change system date with these update.
    Add this below repo to cydia sources and find iFile v.1.3.0 and install it. It worked for me.

      Yes but after ? once you put the date back, iFile has black screen again !
      any solution ?

        Hi Al,

        Try giving your iDevice a hard reboot and try again. It works, I’ve tested it myself.

          sOwL11 years, 3 months ago

          Maybe you mean hard reset? And should i hard reset it while having 18th march as date or after reverting it back to original? Because so far it only works when the date is < 22th march. Otherwise if the timebomb can't be fixed, then why shouldn't we download the latest official iFile, change the registration ID (google ifile-keygen) and use it just like this, with changing the date?
