If you get stuck in a boot loop and don't want to restore to stock 6.1.3/6.1.4, there is a new tool available to take your phone back to stock without losing your jailbreak. Very interesting. I haven't used it yet, so I can't vouch for it, but it's worth checking out if you get in a bind.

I was reading about this last night. Apparently, it removes everything except the jailbreak and the firmware. I'm curious to see how well it works for people.

Just an FYI: It will only work if you have OpenSSH and Apt 0.7 Strict installed on the iPhone prior to getting stuck in the boot loop.

It's so cool that tools like this are being developed. I hope I never need to use it, but what a "save the day" punch this could pack!

Well, I'm not going to use it now, but It'll be handy when I need it in the future. Thanks!
