    I'm getting locked out of my device all over for no reason! The themes folder even! When looked at with iFile it was all set to Read only! I didn't do this!

    Note, this also destroyed my Cydia!!

    What the heck is going on!?

    In SSH, change the password and reset permissions.

    Since all the permissions are difficult to have known, maybe DFU restore, then, SSH and change the password from the default password: Alpine.

    I also have considered uninstalling Terminal app.

    I am changing permissions in iFile, strictly on an as needed basis.
