    Interesting dilemma with Cydia and locktopus

    So I installed Locktopus and tried it out on the first folder I found...Cydia

    Went to unlock it and it asked for password... I never set one that I could remember.

    I might have installed locktopus on my iPhone a while back but deleted it.

    I can't for the life of me remember the password I set there if indeed it carried it over. I tried everyone I have ever used no luck.

    The long and short is I can't use Cydia on the iPad anymore. I would like to restore it back and start from scratch. 4.34 is out and I have saved my blobs prior to this happening. Shows 4.33 in list.

    What should I do ...step by step as I haven't used tiny umbrella previously and is this the only way to reset it?

    Thanks as always for the help

    It's taking all my restraint not to LOL, but dude, that's pretty bad... Seriously? You set a password on Cydia then immediately forgot it... Doh!

    Anyhoo, I shouldn't mock. Sorry.

    I just helped a guy out, and your setup is exactly the same as his, so you should be able to follow exactly the same process. See how you get on with this - is it possible to restore firmware on a jailbroken ipad I without shsh blobs saved?b

    Note, you must use the latest TU released yesterday.

    Actually, before you do that, there must be a way to get locktopus disabled, right?

    Do you have SBSettings?

    If so, open it, go "More" and go "Mobile Substrate Addons" and scoll down and find locktopus and turn it off. Respring and see if that lets you into Cydia.

    Or, try "Power" then "Safe Mode" and you should be able to start Cydia from there and remove locktopus.

    Yes actually I didn't set a password that was the strange thing.... No option came up. I just hit the lock button waiting for password prompt....nothing

    I have bad luck... If I didn't I would have no luck at all

    Then clicked Cydia to open it and asked for password please. I realize of all things to lock.

    I never got sbsettings... I'll try your power idea

    OK. Sorry for the ribbing. I thought you meant you set it and forgot it...

    If you don't have SBSettings you won't get the safe mode option from power.

    Did you install OpenSSH by chance?

    Hold up. If you haven't set the password then it should be set to "password" which is the default. You set the locktopus password in the "Settings" app in the iPad! Try that...
