How to fix the Green Screen Problem on iOS 5

If you’ve recently updated and jailbroken your iPhone on iOS 5.0 then you’ve probably noticed that after it being completely drained (2% battery) and shutting down, and you plug it in to power….. the phone opens up to a green screen… Don’t worry (like I did:) ) this is not a big problem. It can easily be fixed.
Just keep your phone plugged in to power and it should boot up to a normal Apple logo. If that doesn’t work hold the Power and Home button until the phone restarts. Well that’s it for today:)
