iPhone 4 Springboard Crashed After iOS 4.3.3 Jailbreak

Hi, the Springboard of my iPhone crashed after restoring it to iOS 4.3.3 and jailbreaking using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16. This is just my first time to jailbreak and I am not sure how to get things around. I rebooted my device then the app icons, folders and other settings got disorganized. Please help me to fix this. Thanks.

Hello Raven, have you downloaded any app or tweak prior to this error? If yes, then I would recommend you to uninstall it. Then reboot your device and see if the problem get fixed. Additionally, you can also download an app called Crash Reporter from Cydia Store under BigBoss repository in order to efficiently determine the root cause of the issue. Crash Reporter app will not only allow you to determine the root cause of the issue, but it will also enable you to contact the developer of the app – both App Store and Cydia apps – by sending them the crash report.

Usually, it is always recommended to update or restore the iOS device to the latest firmware available if some of the default apps installed on the device get crashed. This is primarily because of the fact that this is the easiest, safest, and most effective way to resolve this issue. However, in your case, since your iPhone is running on untethered iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak, restoring your iPhone to iOS 4.3.5 is not a good idea especially if you don’t have saved iOS 4.3.3 SHSH blobs. But just to make sure, you can check Cydia’s server if the app automatically saved the SHSH blobs of your device. You can do that by following this tutorial. If you have saved SHSH blobs, then consider yourself lucky as you will be able to restore your iPhone to stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file by pressing down the SHIFT key (ALT key for Mac), clicking on the Restore button, and pointing it to iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file which can be downloaded from here.

If Cydia has not saved SHSH blobs, you can use iFaith SHSH Blobs Dumper to backup the SHSH blobs of your device as well as create a signed IPSW file which can be restored on your device. You can follow our step-by-step guide to save the SHSH blobs of your device which can be found on this blog post, and the steps on how to create signed IPSW file is on this link.

Once you are on iOS 4.3.3, you can use this tutorial to jailbreak your iPhone using JailbreakMe 3.0.
