Jailbreaking your device unlocks number of possibilities to customize your device, your way. Jailbreaking is one of the most awaited update iOS users always look for. After iOS 8.4.1 was updated to iOS 9, users were stuck without Jailbreak.
Users were getting impatient waiting for developers to release untethered Jailbreak for iOS 9. To everyone’s surprise, iOS 9 was finally Jailbroken by Pangu team. The tool is currently available for Windows users, and soon expected to be released for Mac users.
People simply rushed over internet to download and Jailbreak their devices, without giving a second thought of what to do after Jailbreaking. It was just the Jailbreak that was available, not the tweaks. Developers need time to update their tweaks to make them compatible with iOS 9.
When you install Cydia tweaks, most of them show up in the Settings app, under a separate list which consists of only tweaks. This helps you change the tweak according your preferences.
However, if you are not seeing any tweak in the Settings app, obviously something is wrong with Cydia. Most cases, there’s nothing to panic. It’s just either a matter of a broken tweak or a failed update. Here’s how to fix the problem.
One of the basic tweak, which is expected to run all other tweaks is PreferenceLoader. Without PreferenceLoader, you will not be able to customize any tweak. Basic job of PreferenceLoader app is to provide a space to your tweaks under Settings app for customizing their options.
The tweak was not compatible with iOS 9 until yesterday, thanks to the developer; PreferenceLoader is updated to work with iOS 9. All you need to do is to hit the Cydia app → Changes and update PreferenceLoader to 2.2.3-1 version. It is recommended to restart your device after updating PreferenceLoader.
To fix PreferenceLoader, here’s what you need to do:
- Open Cydia.
- Tap on Sources.
- Look for PreferenceLoader.
- If you don’t find one, search for it in Cydia and install it.
- If you do find one (which is the norm), tap on it and tap Modify from top-right
- Now, tap on Re-install.
- After this, you reboot your device.
All this usually fixes the problem and you should see the tweaks appear in the Settings tab.
However, in case this doesn’t fix your issue, things could be bad with the Cydia installation itself. A lot many times, this problem is accompanied by the iDevice freezing, by some tweaks not working properly, widgets disappearing. Well, that’s a whole lot of symptoms that says you should re-jailbreak your device to get them working properly.
Of course, before you rejailbreak you should first make sure it’s not one of the tweaks. Update all tweaks and then turn off tweaks through safe-mode just to test if it’s a tweak causing all the problem.
