  • I lost all apple iPhone icons (settings, phone, email, etc.) after trying to update appsync unified repo in cydia. After Yalu jailbreak. Can anyone help me on what to do to get them back?

    • Luca

      AppSync is not compatible with yalu. It is bound to cause errors. Unfortunately, there’s no way to get them back as far as I know.

    Can anybody tell me how i need o put the commands? (Order on thermina)

    • Luca

      You need to enter them using your keyboard in Terminal.

  • Ethan Auringer

    There is no place to put a password for me so I can’t enter alpine and every time I try to open the connection I get “Putty Fatal error, connection refused”.

    • Hello, Ethan. Is you device in jailbroken state? If it is, please check if you are able to telnet to port 22 with this command – telnet [device IP address] 22.
