How to Fix Create Container error in Cydia Impactor

Several users are reporting a weird Cydia Impactor error while using iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak. Here’s a quick fix for this error for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

What does Create Container error mean?

The “Failed to create container” message only appears when you use Tihmstar’s EtasonJB on iOS 8.4.1 firmware.

I haven’t been able to ascertain the root cause of this error yet. The reason behind this is that not many users have experienced this error and those who did, were only running iOS 8.4.1.

Here’s how the Create Container error looks like.

It probably points to some missing caches or folders in the iOS operating system. Since the required files are absent, the jailbreak isn’t sideloaded properly.

Although the Create Container error looks complicated at the outset, fixing it is very simple. Here’s how you can do that.

How to fix Create Container error on iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Step 1 Open the Settings app.

Step 2 Go to General > Reset.

Step 3 Tap Erase All Content and Settings to start the erase process. It will prompt you to enter your passcode and Apple ID password. Do that and wait for the erase process to finish.

That’s how simple it really is! Once the erase is complete, you will be able to use EtasonJB jailbreak once again. If you still run into this error again, try using another Apple ID.
