iPhone 4 Crashed After Jailbreaking & Downloading Apps From Cydia

Hi guys, my iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 crashed after jailbreaking and installing some apps from Cydia. Unfortunately, most of my downloaded iTunes and Cydia apps were also deleted. After rebooting my iPhone, I have noticed that the device is bit laggy and unresponsive. Shall restoring will fix this bug? However, I don’t have SHSH blobs and I want my device jailbroken. Please help me guys! Thanks.

Hello Cheska, first of all, do not sync your iPhone to iTunes or you will lose all your data stored on your Mac or PC. May I know what jailbreak tool do you used? Also, what is the last app that you have downloaded before the crash? Just try to un-install them and reboot your device. Then check your device if it gets fixed. You can also download and install a jailbreak app called Crash Reporter to help you determine the cause of app crashes. If these tips don’t work, hopefully you will be able to fix this through restoring.

Anyway, if you are having a software-related bug then restoring your iPhone to the latest firmware or back to iOS 4.3.3 (via SHSH blobs) will definitely fix the issue. Since iOS 4.3.5 is not supported by the untethered jailbreak, we don’t recommend to restore iOS 4.3.5 on your iPhone unless you have saved the SHSH blobs. You can use TinyUmbrella to check if Cydia have saved the SHSH blobs of your device by clicking on the SAVE SHSH button located at the top right panel of the tool. If Cydia have saved the blobs of your device then consider yourself lucky and follow this tutorial on how to restore your iPhone back to stock iOS 4.3.3 firmware. If you do not see any SHSH blobs in TinyUmbrella, then your last resort is by creating a signed iOS 4.3.3 using iFaith SHSH Blobs Dumper. The step by step guide on how to create signed firmware using iFaith can be found here. But I would still recommend backup your SHSH blobs using iFaith so that you could downgrade your iPhone back to iOS 4.3.3 if everything goes out of hand.

Once you have successfully restored your iPhone to stock iOS 4.3.3, you can now restore your backup data that was stored on iTunes.
