How to Fix the Settings of Cydia Tweaks Disappeared After Jailbreaking iOS 9

Presumably many people have been successfully jailbroken their devices on iOS 9, and out of various errors, crashes and other problems in the iOS 9 jailbreak process. However, the trouble did not stop, some users reported that the option to customize jailbreak tweaks disappeared in the Settings app after successfully jailbreaking their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Pangu iOS 9 jailbreak.

In fact, this is a simple issue, you only need to reinstall PreferenceLoader tweak on your device to fix it. PreferenceLoader is a jailbreak utility that lets any tweaks to have their own section in the Settings app, and now the tweak is compatible with iOS 9.

Here is how to do:

  • Open Cydia on your jailbroken device.
  • Tap on Sources.
  • Look for PreferenceLoader.
  • If you don’t find one, search for it in Cydia and install it.
  • If you do find one (which is the norm), tap on it and tap Modify from top-right
  • Now, tap on Re-install.
  • After this, you reboot your device.

So if you’re not able to find settings for the jailbreak tweaks installed on your iOS device, then head to the Changes tab in Cydia, and install PreferenceLoader 2.2.3-1 or later update.

    think mine went after my phone ran out of juice. Tried this, tweaks still not visible (although reportedly installed in cydia)

    FIXED: Found the cydia substrate in installed, options included upgrade, remove, or downgrade. contemplated remove but ‘modifications’ on confirm suggested that all dependencies (activator, advancedsettings8,appsyncunified,display recorder,……….) would also be removed.

    Went for the upgrade instead, completed (no restart springboard, just return to cydia), did a reinstall of something that provided a ‘restart springboard’ option (I think), et voile….

    good to know resolution available without having to re-JB.

    tempted to check out this

    “Once you do that, add this repo and then install the two Mobile Substrate fix packages. This will help you avoid that problem you’re having.”

    can you tun off ya phone without having this/other problems?
