As I tried to install a tweak in cydia ( iLock) I respring as asked after installing and then my iPhone turned on as it was restored. It told me to set it up as it was the first time. I boot it with redsn0w and it did work I had my iPhone back on but in safe mode. Went to cydia to remove the damn tweak but I couldn't find it so I'm still in safe mode. I installed crash reporter plus the sylog I believe but it didn't detect any tweak causing the crash. Please help!!!

There might be a problem, so the tweak which is creating an issue won't be seen in Cydia.

To find it, either use iFile or iExplorer/iFunBox/etc on a computer.

Navigate to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/ then delete the tweakname.dylib and tweakname.plist and then finally try to exit safe-mode.

Are you just wondering how to get out of Safe Mode? If so, just click "IT SAFE MODE" and click "Respring" If you are in a "loop" where you can't get out of safe mode, try pressing the home and lock button until the Apple symbol appears. This will be a "hard reset" as you see the apple symbol click the volume down button and continue holding it until your phone comes back on. Then try to find your tweak. (Respringing will get you our of this mode). Also, try pressing the toggle button "Simple/Expert" in the top right corner to see if its hidden.

It does not work! I've tried but no result. It seems as cydia is freshly installed. I can't see the other tweaks either in exper or simple (talking about the toggle). I tried to restart; shut it down and turn it back on but still in this damn exit safe mode! Is there a way to find my tweak via iFile?

Are you looking at Manage -> Packages in Cydia?

Seriously you are a genius Sir! It did work! I'm speechless! I did on my iPhone though and I si delete that damn tweak and saw myself out of the safe mode! Many thanks for the bottom of my heart! Cydia still seems to be freshly installed! I can't see all the tweaks I have installed! However I still have all the sources I have added on the past! Anyway many thanks to you brother!

is yours caused by iLock? im guessing its not. How about opening cydia, tapping manage, tapping sources and list your sources
