In today's video, I am going to show you how to fix various Chimera Jailbreak that can occur frequently (like Sileo not appearing, Sileo not opening, some of the Sileo errors, tweaks not showing up in Settings even after installing Cephei and PreferenceLoader, etc.). Many of the errors you may be experiencing with Chimera are persistent from a version to another because Chimera is not only a simple IPA you can replace. The IPA is only a vector to deploy the binaries and the configuration files to the File System. These files are what powers the #jailbreak in the background and re-installing Chimera does not replace these files. You'll need to do an actual file system restore to be able to clear out corrupted #Chimera dependencies or files.
Restoring the filesystem is a new concept in the jailbreak community introduced with #iOS 11 and it works thanks to the APFS file systems Apple switched to. These support a concept called snapshotting which allows the system to revert to a point in time, thus removing all the files and anything related to Chimera and its deep dependencies from the system allowing you to do a fresh re-jailbreak which would install all the components again. This has often fixed my issues with Sileo acting weird or refusing to start at all. It also fixed my tweaks not showing up in the Settings even after installing PreferenceLoader and Cephei. Bugs can appear, and because many of these configuration files are never updated by Chimera, they can persist until the file is removed and replaced with a proper version of it. That's exactly what "Restore ROOT FS" allows one to do.
Restoring the filesystem will not remove any personal data (photos, apps, contacts, etc.), but accidents can happen, so I'd recommend making a backup of the device before following the video. I am not liable for any data loss or damage that can occur by following the tutorial. You do it at your own risk.
