  2. Hi, there.
    I was unlucky to delete in Sydia menu a file called something “***71**” as I thought it referred to completed jailbreak procedure and not needed any longer.
    Have iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1.2 jailbroken with Pangu 1.2.1.
    OpenSSH has been installed but it does not work, no SFTP, no commnad line available. iFile app is useless as Mobile Safari does not start either.
    By repeated running Pangu I could see my device has Jailbroken status.
    What is a right step to make device working properly and with Sydia?
