Now that the Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 9 upto iOS 9.3.3 has been released, many users have already installed the latest iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and enjoying their favourite Cydia tweaks and experimenting with various things in Cydia. However, due to the long gap between the iOS 9 jailbreak and iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, developers did not get much time to update their tweaks so that they work flawlessly with iOS 9.3.3. This has resulted in a lot of users facing undesirable behaviour from the device like Reboot cycles and App crashes.

If you are facing such problems with your iOS device, then you can fix it with the following solutions.
Hard Reboot :
In case you are using iOS since a long time, you will be knowing that most of the common problems in stock as well as jailbroken iOS devices can be fixed with a hard reset. Just press and hold the Power | Lock button and Home buttons together for a few seconds until the phone shuts down and starts again with the Apple logo showing on the screen. This will solve app crashing problems or unresponsive touch input issues.
Solve Endless Reboot Loop with Volume Up trick
In case you iOS device has gone into an endless reboot loop and is rebooting again and again in a few minutes, then it can be a result of an incompatible or broken jailbreak tweak. A hard reboot does not fix this issue, as the tweak tries to start again and again, causing the device to reboot. You can fix this easily. When your device is booting up, press and hold the Volume Up button and you will see the Lock screen again. Open Cydia now and delete the erratic tweak. In case the Volume Up button isn’t working, then try using the Clicker (not Volume up) button on the earphone or headset.
In case you are curious to know how the Volume Up button solves the problem, you must first understand that most of the system tweaks are dependent upon the Mobile Substrate framework. When things go wrong with the system internals and you press the Volume Up button, the Mobile Substrate framework gets completely disabled and acts like a safe mode, giving you the chance to delete the tweak.
Install Only Compatible Tweaks
iOS 9.3.3 still does not support a lot of tweaks and the tweak developers are working on bring the iOS 9.x.x update to their tweaks. So in case you have jailbroken your iOS device with the Pangu jailbreak tool, make sure that you check the compatibility of tweaks [ext link] before installing them.
