phone unusable

Best Answer fatality342 , 07 September 2018 - 06:57 PM

I managed to fix it by using SSH into my phone and deleting Appsync and Appcake v.5.5.9.1 and then reinstalling Appsync and downgrading Appcake to v5.5.8.1. Thank you very much for the help though Go to the full post »

iPhone 6S Plus on iOS 10.3.1 with doubleH3lix jailbreak.

 

An hour ago I decided to open the AppCake app because I haven't in a while and once I did, a popup saying an update to version 5.5.9.1 is available. I tapped on OK, the update downloaded and installed and then it said that it will close the AppCake app and restart Springboard shortly. Once that was done, I unlocked my phone and now I can't see any of my apps, not even the stock ones. Everything is empty, the dock is empty too. I can access the NC and the Control Center but it's no use. All I can see is my status bar. The Spotlight search works, some info comes up such as contacts but nothing happens when I tap on any of them. This has never happened before and I have no idea what to do, I can't even post a screenshot because literally no application works and it's the only phone i have right now. Everything worked fine before. My situation is similar to https://forum.iphone...y-what-do-i-do/
but in my case I can't even see any apps at all and can't access anything. https://imgur.com/a/lQb34Cl This is my phone right now. Anything that can be done?

Can you please kindly guide me on how to do that? I managed to get into jailbroken mode by sideloading doubleH3lix from a PC, but that is the only app I see on the homescreen, I can't use Cydia or Safari to downgrade to an older version, any other method to do that?

/System/Library/LaunchDaemons

I had this happen to me on 10.2 a couple weeks ago. You usually need to delete AFC2 and AppCake to fix it, but your location services and some other settings will be reset.

I happened to be in unjailbroken state and still had yalu on the phone, but it was expired and hidden. Managed to fix it by jailbreaking with doubleH3lix lol
