Lately Apple began to make things harder for the jailbreaking community. Any vulnerability discovered by hackers was soon removed by Apple in another update. This is why many jailbreak methods are still semi-tethered. This can be an inconvenience for most users, since it means that every time that they turn off their device they will need to manually re-enable the mod. Luckily, this is not a difficult thing, although it can become annoying really fast.
You do not want to turn on your handset and notice that all jailbreak apps and tweaks no longer work. For those who do not know already, here is how you can re-enable a semi-tethered jailbreak.
Re-enabling jailbreak after reboot
The method that we will show you today works for both Pangu and Phoenix for iOS 9.2–9.3.3 and 9.3.5. The entire process is very easy since the jailbreak is still there, you just need to re-enable it. If you do not do this you will notice all the apps and the tweaks from jailbreak, including Cydia, but you will not be able to use them.
- First of all, open your jailbreak, in this case Pangu or Phoenix. Simply open the app from the home screen and then tap the Start button.
- Lock your device and wait. In a few seconds a new notification should inform you that jailbreak has succeeded.
- Your phone will respring.
- You should have jailbreak once again.
After this process is complete you can go and open Cydia or any other apps in order to make sure that everything is functioning perfectly. If you sideloaded Pangu or Phoenix with Cydia Impactor instead of downloading them over the air, you will have to re-enable the jailbreak tool every 7 days since it expires.
