When Is Jailbreak for iOS 8.3 or iOS 9 Coming Out?

When is jailbreak for iOS 8.3 coming out? You know that Apple released the new firmware and it has some issues with Bluetooth GPS and Touch ID on iOS 8.3. The company has also launched first beta of iOS 8.4 which you can download via direct links. All these versions cannot be jailbroken right now but there is a big event coming out this summer. It is called JailbreakCon 2015 and it will gather together famous hackers and jailbreakers.

This Worldwide Jailbreak Con starts on June 20. The event lasts for two days and it allows attendees from all over the world to attend presentations and workshops and learn much more about the jailbreaking. It takes place in San Francisco.

This JailbreakCon date doesn’t mean that hackers will spend two summer days on creating a new jailbreak for the future iOS 9 or searching for the ways to jailbreak older iOS 8.2, 8.3, 8.4 if they are not jailbreakable by the end of June. No! What this means is they all will help others to learn about their hobby and maybe find new exploits in the future which is also great for the jailbreaking community.

The June 20-21 event will be organized in a historic building which you can read about on the official JailbreakCon site. Not all the news are announced and a lot of interesting plans are yet to be confirmed.

Users will definitely learn about Cydia, discuss different levels of development and get introduced to the world of iOS. Who knows, this summer might help some new genius to break the limits set by Apple and create a new jailbreaking tool for the current or new versions of iPhone mobile firmware.


How to Install Cydia after Deleting It on iOS 8 iPhone or iPad

Cydia got deleted how do I get it back? Is this what you are looking for? Follow our instruction on how to install Cydia after deleting it on iOS 8 firmware. Everything is not too complicated so you will be able to successfully get back this unofficial store with tons of tweaks and jailbreak applications. Remember that you have to be jailbroken to install and use it.

Sometimes you can delete the store by mistake. We don’t know what happened in your situation, but if you managed to remove Cydia from your iPhone or iPad it is time to get it back.

Cydia Deleted How to Reinstall It

There are several methods you can try.

1. Rejailbreak

The easiest step is to rejailbreak if your firmware is below iOS 8.2. Apple has presented iOS 8.3 update recently but it cannot be jailbroken at the moment. The previous version is also non-jailbreakable. If you happened to already restore to 8.2 or 8.3 you are out of luck using this method. Since rejailbreaking means restoring you will lose your iOS 8.1.3 and it is no longer possible to downgrade 8.2 to 8.1.3 or 8.3 to 8.1.3. In other words, don’t use this method until hackers find new exploits.

2. SSH

If you installed OpenSSH in the past you can use it to reinstall Cydia store. You need to download APT 0.6 or APT 0.7 package from Cydia before you begin. Maybe your friends can help you. Launch OpenSSH and use this command:

apt-get install cydia

Press on Enter and type this:

su mobile -c uicach

Press on Enter.

Wait till your iDevice reboots. Cydia should be back.

3. Safari

If you have iFile installed on the iDevice you can launch Safari and find the most recent Cydia version for your gadget. Launch iFile and install Cydia with its help. There should be a reboot and you’ll be able to use the jailbreak store afterwards.

We hope that this Cydia deleted how to get it back instruction was useful and handy to you. Enjoy!


iOS 8.3 Bluetooth GPS Receiver Issues Reported by Users

The recently reported iOS 8.3 Bluetooth issues are not the first problems with this new firmware version. Apple released its update for iPhone and iPad mobile operating system last week. You can easily download iOS 8.3 for free using direct links however you are not protected from various bugs.

Firstly, users noted that they couldn’t use Touch ID in the App Store. This problem can be mostly solved with restore and Settings option update. Secondly, iOS 8.3 Bluetooth GPS receiver problem surfaced. Thirdly, a lot of iDevice owners complain about poor battery life. As you can see there are numerous problems in different areas and, as always, the new mobile firmware from the ‘fruit’ company isn’t perfect.

There is a report shared by software company ForeFlight where it mentions the issue with Bluetooth GPS receivers after iOS 8.3 installation. This is not a secret problem and it does exist for users who have these receivers. The issue mostly relates to the early GPS accessories that cannot work correctly with different mobile applications such as ForeFlight Mobile.

However, the new issue doesn’t affect all receivers. There are no problems with Stratus or Bad Elf Pro+ accessories. There are no comments from Apple at this point.

If you happen to experience Bluetooth GPS receiver issues after updating to 8.3 version you are highly advised to disconnect the accessories that stopped working. Instead, you can use the built-in GPS for now on your iPad. Keep waiting till the Cupertino-based company releases the update with the fixes to its current problems.

The ‘fruit’ giant is already working on iOS 8.4 beta as it seeded the first one to developers earlier this week. Maybe this next upgrade is designed to solve some iOS 8.3 problems and bugs. Have you had any issues followed by the new update?
