            Did you do a full restore before the jailbreak? If not might be worth a try.

  8. blawoef

    02/04/2013 at 12:10 pm

    Cydia servers must be overloaded currently, seems only natural with millions of us trying to access at the same time.

    As to JBing OTA updated systems, evasi0n team explicitly recommended against it, so I am certainly going to go the backup->clean restore->jailbreak->restore backup route.

    I’ve got the same problem as some other users above. Jailbreak works fine up to the step when I have to unlock my screen and tap the jailbreak icon. But there is no icon at all. I’ve tried it several times, different download mirrors, always the same result – no icon to tap on. Did anybody find a solution to fix the problem?
