How to Fix Cydia and Safari Crash Issue After iOS 5.0.1 Tethered Jailbreak

Hello Jaxov, I have managed to jailbreak my iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1 using Sn0wbreeze, and then did a tethered boot using iBooty tool. After rebooting, I launched Cydia to download some apps. It booted ok but as soon as I tried to download some tweaks, Cydia crashed just right after I launched it. Also, Safari mobile is also not working, it seems like it cannot connect to Internet even the Wi-Fi is ON. Please help.

Asked by: Mar from Green Bay, Wisconsin

Hello Mar, have you encountered any error while jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1 using Sn0wbreeze? Or, have you activated your iPhone using iTunes after jailbreaking? Well, it seems like you will need to restore your iPhone to iOS 5.0.1 (do a clean restore) and then rejailbreak it again. I would recommend you to use Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 (available for both Mac OS X and Windows users) instead of Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 as we are hearing some reports from our readers that this version of Sn0wbreeze is quite buggy.

If you aren’t familiar on how to use the latest version of Redsn0w jailbreak tool, then you can refer to our step-by-step guide posted here on how to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4 and other iOS devices. Then after jailbreaking, in order to fully activate the jailbreak, just connect your iPhone to your computer to boot it into tethered jailbroken state using Redsn0w’s Just Boot option. Also, make sure to activate your iPhone using iTunes to ensure working of the features, which include the Safari, FaceTime, iMessage, and other features on the jailbroken iPhone firmware. That’s it!

      It seems that the Reset Settings caused these problems. Your best bet is to restore and jailbreak again. You can use evasi0n7 to jailbreak, here’s a tutorial for you. Hope it works!!

    it easy all you have to do is download snowbreeze run it so it jailbreaks again afterwards cydia will crash again so then you run ibooty(comes after you run snow breeze) then you should download iflile the rest of the step is found on youtube

Can you tell me how? itunes gives me error 3194. after fixing it, i get error 11. i then get error 3194. i have followed all the guides for fixing but i cant. can you tell me how to take off the jailbreak? i want safari working
