    Last night I was in Cydia and I had some updates to install. When I went to hit 'Upgrade' I looked at the list of updates that would be installed. I noticed that something new was being installed: "[PIRACY] for OS 3.1". I am on firmware 3.0, but I used the app FirmwareChanger from Cydia to change my firmware to 3.1.2 . Ever since last night my device has been rebooting repeatedly. I am able to access my filesystem but I do not know where '[PIRACY] for OS 3.1' would be located. If someone knows, please help me out.

    Thank you

    the constant rebooting is called the SWOD or swirling wheel of death. download i funbox here: http://www.i-funbox.com/ and then use the search option in it to find [PIRACY]... this should fix the problem

    I'll give it a shot... I tried using iFunBox and searched but the search never finished.

    it takes too long for the search to finish... it reboots before I can find the location

    Hold the power and home button for 10 seconds. Release the power button. Make sure your USB is connected. Restore.

    I had this problem so just let the battery die down and then eventually it should enter safe mode. From there you can use iFile to work out the problem and delete.

    Will it really enter safe mode? If it could enter safe mode that would be great
