PanGu is the untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 which was released very unexpectedly, and it’s certainly made a lot of people very happy. The release of the untethered jailbreak was completely out-of-the-blue: even the team responsible for it said that they hurried to release this jailbreak to the anxious public. Because of this rush, you may be facing some problems. If indeed you are experiencing the bootloop problem, then we have a solution for you, however unconventional it may be. Below are the instructions on how to fix the bootloop error after jailbreaking on iOS 7.1.1 with PanGu.
The Bootloop Error: How to Fix
Unfortunately may users have complained about the bootloop error when jailbreaking with PanGu. If you happen to be one of these complainers then we have a solution for you, although it may sound a bit weird!
A Reddit user has provided this solution to fix the problem, and although sounding silly, it appears that this does actually work. A light sensor is causing the bootloop!
“I have an iPhone 4 and i did jailbreak with Pangu. I have bootloop everytimes i try to restart my phone.
“I KNOW THIS SOUND CRAZY, but it seems like a bug caused by light sensor. If your phone is in the dark you will get stuck in the bootloop. If you point a flashlight above the light sensor, boot goes well. This also works if you get stuck on “Pangu welcome screen”.
It appears that you will have the bootloop problem if your iPhone is in the dark, however when you point a torch or flashlight at it, the problem is fixed!
And as weird as this sounds, some users have reported that not only is the bootloop issue fixed, it also fixes your iOS device if it becomes stuck at the ‘PanGu welcome screen’!
So if you’re a user trying to deal with the bootloop error, simply point your flash light at the light sensor and your problem will be a problem no more!
The developer teams responsible for the Pangu jailbreak have advised that they’re working as diligently as they can to improve this jailbreaking tool, plus fix the issues being experienced after jailbreaking.
