Several users had this confusion when they heard that the new Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3 is semi-untethered. It basically means that you will need to run the jailbreak app every time you perform a reboot on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
For many experienced jailbreakers, this is a straightforward and easy to understand the statement. However, for beginners, they don’t really know when to re-jailbreak their device or identify the different between Respring and Reboot.
In this article, I’ll explain it to you and show you when is the appropriate time to re-jailbreak the iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak.
First off, let’s talk about when you install/remove a tweak or theme from Cydia. At the end of each process, there is a Respring button. Tap on it and your iPhone will be restart with the latest changes made by the tweak or theme. You can look at the Respring function as a quick restart. Therefore, it does not require you to re-jailbreak the semi-untethered jailbreak.
Reboot, on the other hand, is another story. When your iPhone or iPad is rebooted, you must run the jailbreak app for all the packages you’ve installed to work properly. You may see Cydia still on the home screen and tweak’s icon or options remain where they were before. But if you don’t re-jailbreak the device, then none of them will work.
How to Reboot in iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3 Jailbreak
Now that you know the difference between Reboot and Respring and when to do a re-jailbreak lets me show you how it’s done.
Step 1: Open the PP Jailbreak app from your Springboard
Step 2: Tap on Allow notifications when prompted and tap on the circle button in the center
Step 3: Lock your device and wait for a notification from the app (Ignore the “Storage Almost Full” message)
Step 4: Swipe right on the notification and your device will Respring
After that, Cydia and all the tweaks you be working as normal again. Although this is not better than an untethered jailbreak, we have to admit that it’s so much faster and easier than a tethered jailbreak.
