iOS 10.3.3 firmware just got a new jailbreak tool, which comes with its own set of problems. The most prominent issue with this tool is the white screen of death in Cydia that doesn’t seem to go away.

Why does Cydia get stuck on a white screen?
Cydia gets stuck on a white screen due to a few missing files or patches in the jailbreak tool.
Even though files of the Cydia installer are present on your iOS device, Cydia doesn’t have proper privileges. Therefore, all you get is a white screen once you open it.
This happens specifically on devices that are running the version 3 of the iOS 10.3.x jailbreak. This version is missing a few patches and hence doesn’t launch Cydia properly on several devices.
The latest version of this tool by developer xPeeks fixes this issue.
Here are a couple of fixes that you can try to fix this issue once and for all.
How to fix the white screen of death in Cydia
Method 1 – Re-install Bootstrap
Step 1 Download the g0blin jailbreak IPA file (latest version) from here.
Step 2 Install it and run the jailbreak app.
Step 3 Tap the “i” icon present in the top right corner of your screen.
Step 4 Enable the force re-install bootstrap option and press Save.
Step 5 Come back and tap the Jailbreak button.
Step 6 You can now run Cydia and run tweaks like you normally do.
If this method doesn’t work for you, you can try the following method. I don’t really recommend doing it because it requires the users to enable SSH access.
Method 2 – SSH Method
Step 1 SSH into your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. if you don’t know how to do that, follow this tutorial.
Step 2 Enter the following commands in the terminal –
alpine (this is the default password unless you changed it)
apt-get remove cydia
Step 3 Wait until it removes Cydia from your device.
Step 4 Follow all the steps of Method 1 for a fresh install of Cydia.
Method 3 – Use Meridian Jailbreak (Recommended)
Step 1 Download and install the latest version of Meridian jailbreak.
Step 2 Run it and select the Force Reinstall Cydia option from the Custom Options menu.
Step 3 Run g0blin jailbreak again. Cydia will now start working like it is supposed to.

I just tried xPeeks version:
1. G0blin jailbreak with Cydia Impactor stalls out on Jake & xPeeks @
When using xPEEKS it’s the same just change the name instead of Jake. However also, with xPEEKS, I get “Device Not Supported” and I’m running 10.3.3 (14G60)
Delete all existing IPA files from your iPhone and then retry.
