Tired of waiting for the untethered jailbreak? Probably you are! Recently a lot tutorials flow up about some operations without jailbreaking. Here is a method to create an easy way to respring at any time without jailbreaking. Take a look:

How to create a quick respring shortcut on your Home screen

Step 1: Create two folders, one containing apps or shortcuts that you don’t care to use.

Step 2: Place the folder containing apps that you don’t care about on page three of your Home screen. Place the folder containing apps that you care about on page two of your Home screen.

Step 3: Swipe over to page 3, and press the Home button, then immediately tap and hold on the folder you just placed there. The screen should quickly swipe over to the first page. Quickly swipe back to the second page containing the other folder you created.

Step 4: If you did this properly, then wiggle mode should automatically kick in without you doing so. Tap the folder on the second page to open it, and then press the Home button. Your folder from the third page should be placed into the folder on the second page.

Step 5: Open the folder on the second page, and tap and drag all of the apps out of the folder, being careful to leave the folder containing the apps you don’t care about in the folder.

Step 6: All that should remain in the folder is the folder containing apps you don’t care about. Now enter wiggle mode, and rename the main folder “Respring”.

Step 7: Any time you would like to respring, simply open up the respring folder, and tap the folder residing inside of it. This will automatically cause your iPhone to “crash” and respring back to the Lock screen.

Step 8: Feel free to place this shortcut in a place where you can easily access it.

This is, of course, another non-jailbreak tweak, and to be honest, it’s debatable as to whether this provides any value to a non-jailbroken user in the first place. Normally you would never think about respringing a device on a non-jailbroken iPhone, so the question is, is it even worth doing?

I’ll leave that debate up to you, but some may feel that it helps out if their iPhone is running a little slow. One thing is for sure — it can’t hurt.

If you want something that can provide some definite tangible value, then be sure to check out our Newsstand glitch trick, which will allow you to store and launch an infinite number of apps from the Newsstand folder without jailbreaking.

Does it works on your device?
