Jailbroken iPhone 4 on iOS 5 Keeps Entering Safe Mode & Stuck in Recovery Mode Loop

Hello Jaxov people, I have just jailbroken my iPhone on iOS 5 using the new Redsn0w 0.9.9b8. However, after installing some jailbreak apps and tweaks, my iPhone keeps entering the Safe Mode when I try to launch certain apps. So I uninstalled some suspicious apps from Cydia but after uninstalling those apps, my iPhone got stuck in recovery mode. Any suggestions on what to do?

Asked by: Marco from Inglewood, California

Hello Marco, as much as possible I would recommend you to STAY AWAY from the new iOS 5.0.1 software update. Because once you update your jailbroken iPhone 4 to iOS 5.0.1, you will automatically lose the ability to get untethered jailbreak when it will be released in near future.

Anyway, in your case, you can boot your iPhone out of recovery mode using Redsn0w 0.9.9b8’s Recovery fix option. To do that, all you have to do is connect your jailbroken iPhone 4 on your Mac or PC and then launch Redsn0w 0.9.9b8, select Extras, and then click on Recovery fix tab. If nothing happens after using Redsn0w’s Recovery fix option, then you can use the standalone version of TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery).

Once you got your iPhone out of Recovery mode, just simply launch Cydia and then go to changes to update your installed jailbreak apps and tweaks. Please be noted that this process might take a while especially if you have numerous packages installed on your device. Also, you can download Crash Reporter to determine the problem of your device. Good luck!
