How Does Semi-Untethered Jailbreak Work?
If you are not aware of the concept, let us tell you that Phoenix is semi-untethered jailbreak and in this case after restarting the device patched kernel will reset. So one cannot use any jailbreak tweaks until re-jailbreak is not done. If you run that apps Cydia will crash when launched. To re-jailbreak, simply open the Phoenix app and perform the jailbreak again. Your device will then go back to the normal jailbroken state.
When Does the Phoenix App Expire & How Do I Renew It?
If you are installing the Phoenix app with a free Apple ID, it will expire after 7 days. So you have to re-install it via Cydia Impactor to extend it for another 7 days. The steps are the same as outlined above. Also note that you need the Phoenix app only when you want to jailbreak your device, so even if it expires, the jailbreak is not lost. But you will need to renew the certificate if you want to re-jailbreak your iOS device.
If you install the Phoenix app with a developer Apple ID, then the app will remain installed for up to one year before it expires.
