What is Cydia Respring Fix?
Cydia crashes instantly when you hit the Restart Springboard button and hangs at a black screen when installing a new tweak. To fix this error, you need to hard reboot your device and then re-jailbreak your iPhone 7.
Cydia’s Respring functionality is currently broken and you need to do it manually. This is where Cydia Respring Fix comes into action.
Developer fr0st released his own temporary fix for Respring. This fix was supposed to be an unofficial alternative until Yalu jailbreak was updated for iOS 10.1.1.
However, Yalu jailbreak seems to be left in the lurch and will never likely come out of beta stage. So, using Cydia Respring Fix is imperative.
Follow the tutorial below to download and install this tool.
