Here’s how to enter Substrate Safe Mode on iOS 10.2 to fix issues after iOS 10.x.x jailbreak on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Like Windows, iOS jailbreak users also have a safe mode that can be very useful when you are facing issues after a device is jailbroken. Owning and operating a liberated device is fantastic when everything is going as intended, or to plan. In case if anything go wrong, potentially because there is an issue with the jailbreak itself, or you unknowingly installed a twea or package that doesn’t offer total compatibility with your device and firmware version, then you can find yourself in a world of issues very quickly.
Now that Substrate Safe Mode is present to help you, it allows to restore some sanity and to instantly get a break from the recurring issues. Substrate Safe Mode works like a built-in safety net for when things start to awry, or when the device itself starts to show signs of performing in an unexpected manner.
By entering Substrate Safe Mode, device owners can debug tweaks and packages causing issues, and will be able to get rid of the troubling packages without having to go through the trobleshoot route to start from scratch. It’s essentially the best solution, we’ll walk you through the entire process right here to help you get started.
Note: We recommend you update Substrate Safe Mode to the latest version 0.9.6000 which adds support for yalu102 jailbreak.
About the newly released Substrate Safe Mode version 0.9.6000 on Cydia for jailbroken devices not only adds support for iOS 10.0.x-10.2 jailbreak, but also makes jailbreak devices safer to operate than before. Available immediately as an update on Cydia Installer.
According to the release notes and changelog, Substrate Safe Mode 0.9.6000 is “arguable safer?” on iOS 10,” more specifically on yalu102 jailbreak for iOS 10.2″. In case if you are using the older Yalu for iOS 10.0-10.1.1 jailbreaks, including the final “b3”, clicking Restart will cause the device to lock up so will need to reboot. This takes you to a known issue with this jailbreak.
First up. To update to this latest version of Substrate Safe Mode, launch the Cydia Installer, tab on the Changes tab on the bottom bar and wait for it to reload all the new packages available. Once loaded, simply update to get onto the new version. Later required to reboot your device after the installation.
Another point to make a note is that since yalu102 is a semi-untethered jailbreak, you will have to put your device back into jailbreak mode after reboot, instructions for that can be found here: Re-Jailbreak iOS 10.2 Yalu102 After Reboot, Here’s How.
Enter iOS 10.2 Substrate Safe Mode To Fix Issues After Yalu102 Jailbreak
Step 1: If you’re facing any type of issues with your jailbroken device, then you have probably rebooted it which means that it is a non-jailbroken state given the semi-untethered nature of yalu102. If not, you will need to reboot the iPhone or iPad and make sure your device is in non-jailbreak mode.
Step 2: With the device rebooted, and now in non-jailbreak state, launch the yalu102 jailbreak app from the Home screen.
Step 3: With the iOS 10.2 jailbreak app open, tap on the “go” button. Under normal circumstances, this should invoke the underlying yalu102 functionality to re-jailbreak the device. But to enter Substrate Safe Mode, you’re going to need to instantly press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons together right after tapping to go button.
Step 4: Must keep in mind those buttons pressed together until you first see the Apple boot logo, followed by the Lock screen.
Done! You have successfully put the device into Substrate Safe Mode. This is some sort opens up a whole new world of troubleshooting possibilities to fix any issues you maybe having with your jailbroken device, including the ability to uninstall or remove any tweaks completely that may be causing boot look issues and more.
