  • 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.

  • Josue31

    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.

    i have the cydia app but it just keeps crashing and i cant access it im running ios 10.0.2 and ive tried the yalu reset but i cant do it cos it says that its already jailbroken. what can i do for the cydia app to work? im trying to jailbreak an iphone 6s

    • Hello, Jess. Which “yalu reset” did you try?

      • Jess Louisee

        yalu102 beta 7 is that what you mean?

        • Jess Louisee

          I tried a few suggestions Ive read about with trying to reset the app again and pressing go but that didn’t work because it said that it was already jailbroken,, and eveeytime I go to launch Cydia in won’t open and just constantly crashes.

          • Try Blueyalu and reinstall Cydia using it. That will most likely fix your issue. Hope this helps.

        • I got you.
