Hello,

My 2.5 yrs jailbroken 8.3 iphone 5s gets switched off at 8%. Can anyone please help me diagnose this issue ?

Also, when kept for charging, the apple logo is displayed in just 1-2 secs and 7% charging is displayed.

Please help !!

This has happened occasionally to me on all of my iPhones. It's nothing to worry about if it's just once in a while. It could be that the battery percentage wasn't calibrated. Rebooting typically resets that. Post back if it is happening every time you get to 8%.

I have tried pressing home button and power button at a time until the apple logo is been displayed, several times. But the issue still persists.

I don't think you can do anything to fix this aside from restoring or getting a new battery. You could try resetting all settings.

Wifi works fine. I cannot call Carrier because I do not have APN setting tab visible. Also, why is my number not displayed ?

Call your carrier and let them know you don't have cellular data or an APN setting tab. If they can't help you, you might have to restore.

My bad luck.... I did not backup my iphone previously. It worked great on my 5s running iOS 8.4.

So, I have no other option than to Update.
Have you tried Cydia Impactor? That might work without having to update your iOS version and lose your jailbreak. It's worth a shot.

It's on the Cydia/Telesphoreo repo (http://apt.saurik.com/)

Phew !!!!!
Checking out Cydia Impactor just slipped from my mind. But many thanks for reminding me.
I have already initiated update so am helpless now.
