Do you know what it means to have a semi-untethered jailbreak on your iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3?

Simply put, 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.


How to apply changes after installing a package

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

  1. Open the PP Jailbreak app from your Springboard
  2. Tap on Allow notifications when prompted and tap on the circle button in the center
  3. Lock your device and wait for a notification from the app (Ignore the “Storage Almost Full” message)
  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.

Now that you know the difference between Reboot and Respring and when to re-jailbreak let’s talk about the possibility of failing to re-jailbreak.

How to know if iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak is working properly

  1. Go to Cydia and reload your sources
  2. Visit the Changes tab or use the Search option
  3. Look for Initialized and Install it

Initialized is a jailbreak tweak that helps users know if their jailbroken iOS device is really “jailbroken.”

For some people, they may think everything has been done correctly, but that’s not the case. As a result, a lot of users found themselves unable to use any installed tweaks or themes and Cydia doesn’t work at all.

When you see this popup after every reboot (as shown above) that means everything has been setup correctly.


Upon installation, there will be options for you to adjust in the Settings page. It’s now available from the BigBoss repo for free. Grab it while you can.
