2. After the device reboots, you should be on the Home screen. Now uninstall the tweak that’s causing thee boot loop issue, perhaps it is the latest tweak that you installed on Cydia.

3. The steps put the device in jailbreak mode but no Substrate tweaks are active. Cydia can be accessed, launch it and uninstall the tweak causing the issue.

4. After uninstallation, exit No Substrate Mode and place the device into jailbreak mode once more. For doing so, reboot it, and then you’ll go to no jailbreak mode. Cydia will still crash at this moment.

5. Place the phone in jailbreak mode now, by following the yalu102 jailbreak guide.

After that’s all done, you will hopefully have a jailbroken device with no Cydia crashing or boot loop problems.
