How To Fix iPhone Rebooting Randomly Overnight Problem After Jailbreak

We wholeheartedly have to thank China-based Pangu Team for the latest jailbreak that we are all enjoying on Apple’s 64-bit devices running iOS 9.2-9.3.3. It does a fantastic job of liberating a wide array of Apple hardware, but it also seems to bring with it a number of issues that can be quite frustrating and concerning for those who they affect.

One of the latest to occur, which has been reported via comments from our own readers here at RP, seems to randomly cause a jailbroken iOS 9.3.3 device to reboot randomly overnight.


This may not seem like a large issue, but when you consider the semi-untethered nature of the jailbreak, then you start to get an understanding as to why that can be annoying.

If you happen to be afflicted by this particularly bug, and find yourself having to re-jailbreak often to put the device back into a jailbroken mode each morning when you wake up, then you’ll be pleased to know that there is a fix. The following fix has worked for us in resolving the problem, if it works for you too, let us know via the comments section below.

Step 1: On your jailbroken device, find the Cydia app and launch it. Of course, as this is a semi-untethered jailbreak, make sure that you are actually in a jailbroken mode before running Cydia.

Step 2: When Cydia launches and has refreshed, head on over to the Sources tab.

Step 3: Add the following repository source:

Step 4: Once the repo has been added, allow Cydia to refresh and reload.

Step 5: Locate the newly added repository and tap on it to view the list of packages it contains. Scroll until you find one titled “iOS 9 Reboot Fix“. Alternatively, you can also use Cydia’s built-in Search functionality and search for the name of the package.


Step 6: Install the package like you would with any other tweak and respring the device if requested.

There is off course no guarantee that this installed tweak will fix 100% of the reported cases 100% of the time, but as mentioned earlier, in our own testing it seems to have resolved the issue satisfactorily. It may only be a small installation, but if it negates the need to have to put the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch back into a jailbroken state every morning, then we will take it.
