How To Fix Passcode Issue In iOS 8.x Jailbreak [Video]

Although Pangu team and Saurik worked hard to bring iOS 8 untethered jailbreak, there is still ongoing issues that still need some fix. One of the biggest issues encountered when running Cydia on a jailbroken iOS 8 device at the moment involves using the passcode and Touch ID.

In case you don't know this error, many people are reporting that establishing a passcode sends them into a bootloop. I verified that I encountered the same issue.

Let me just preface this by saying that the problems encountered here are no fault of the Pangu team or of Saurik. This jailbreak is a work in progress, and we’ve been advised that the jailbreak is only for developers at the moment. That said, many of you are adventurous and want to take the plunge as soon as possible; as do I.

Check out iDB video and we will guide through the fix:

Note: Before following our guide, you should know that we've tried this way and it worked with us, you are doing this at your own risk. I personally recommend waiting for Saurik to release an updated Cydia build, but it’s up to you whether or not you wish to do this.

STEP 1: re-jailbreak your iPhone and make a quick clean with pangu tool. Avoid enabling any passcode or Touch ID.

STEP 2: Open Pangu tool and install OpenSSH..
STEP 3: Download This Zip file, which contains the files needed to install Cydia and a patch for the passcode bootloop issue.

STEP 4: Connect to your iPhone via CyberDuck (Windows users can use WinSCP).

STEP 5: Drag the two Cydia files to your iPhone’s /private/var/root/ directory

STEP 6: Execute the following command by going to Go → Send Command:
dpkg --install cydia-lproj_1.1.12_iphoneos-arm.deb cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb
STEP 7: Now reboot your device.

STEP 8: Navigate to /usr/libexec/cydia/ and overwrite the file with the patched file included in the zip file file that you downloaded in step 3.

STEP 9: Reboot your device once more time..

STEP 10: Open Cydia and perform any updates that are available (you may be asked to reboot upon installation)

STEP 11: Open Cydia and install Activator (to test). This will install all of the needed Substrate files as well

STEP 12: Now go to Settings and add a passcode for your device.

STEP 13: Reboot your device..

If you device rebooted without a reboot loop, congratulations! You just installed Cydia and used a passcode.
