How to Fix “Entry Point Not Found” Error for iOS on Windows

Back when I was using p0sixspwn, a jailbreak tool for iOS 6.1.x, there was an error that occurred on my Windows computer.

It says something like this:

“The procedure entry point sqlite3_clear_bindings could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\CFNetwork.dlll”

This could happen to anyone and on different software as well. Not just a jailbreak utility like p0sixspwn. The gist of it is that if any software you tried to open fail to look up a particular file within the Apple folder, the entry point not found will appear. Also, the popup should tell you exactly what it was looking for.

In my case, p0sixspwn could not identify the SQLite3.dll file from iTunes. The following fix below should generally help you resolve the problem.

How to fix “Entry Point Not Found” error on Windows

  1. You download the jailbreak utility at http://p0sixspwn.com/
  2. Unzip the package and go to the following directory on your computer: C:Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
  3. Then copy the SQLite3.dll file to the folder containing p0sixspwn or you can directly download the file here.
  4. Restart your computer and after that everything should run smoothly again.

You can also apply the same method and follow the same Windows path to find missing files like libxml2.dll, libxml3.dll, WTF.dll, and WebKit.dll. When the required file is downloaded, copy and paste it over to the new folder.

Don’t forget

When you run any jailbreak tools like Pangu and TaiG on Windows, they will always pull Apple-related background values. When unable to find the right file, it will show you the entry point error.

That being said, the best way to fix such problem is by finding the correct .dlll file and move it to the belonging folder.
