MobileSubstrate Updated, Prevents Bootloops [Cydia]

Cydia creator Jay Freeman (@saurik) has released a significant update to MobileSubstrate, a framework that is vital to the functionality of other jailbreak tweaks from Cydia such as WinterBoard, SBSettings, and Activator. The update, which brings MobileSubstrate to versionĀ 0.9.3997, includes the ability to disable Substrate altogether by holding down the “volume up” button as the device boots.

This feature allows you to bypass horribly broken extensions (ones that prevent the device from starting up at all) that you may have installed so you can open Cydia and uninstall them.

To support devices that do not have a Volume Up button (the first-generation iPod touch), you can alternatively hold down the “Clicker” (not Volume Up) button on your headset or earphones.

Thanks, Matt!
