Thank you for not saying stucked. Try holding the volume-up button continuously until you get to the home screen, then open cydia and uninstall the last tweak you installed, which is likely the culprit.

that got me back to the mobile substrate fail which is what happened at first. At first it gave me a pop-up message to the effect that something ( safe mode or mobile substrate ) did not cause the problem but saved me. It then had 3 buttons at the bottom one of which was I believe restart.....thats when I got stuck in a loop. Do you think it's possible that mobile substrate may save me on a completely fresh respiring or reboot.? By the way the last tweak was something like " Folder enhancer or enhancer plus "

What he said.

(18 Sep '12, 19:43) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Enhancer Plus doesn't exist and FolderEnhancer does work on iOS 5.1.1. If you installed FolderEnhancer from a pirate repo, chances are it's an outdated version; consider buying it if you didn't so you get updates immediately.

It was BigBoss purchased so maybe a full respring will help.....maybe it got stuck as a fluke

(18 Sep '12, 19:51) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

It is as you said compatible with 5.1.1 but it may have been an incompatibility with infinifolder. They have an " experimental " on off button to make infinifolder compatable. Maybe that was it and I should try that with a respiring?

(18 Sep '12, 20:09) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

Yeah, try that - uninstall Infinifolders, enable FolderEnhancer's Infinifolders fix and install it again. (In fact, you don't really need Infinifolders; FolderEnhancer can do everything it does.)

(18 Sep '12, 20:15) kirb ♦ kirb's gravatar image

will uninstalling infinifolders dump out my folders?

(18 Sep '12, 20:20) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

It shouldn't, but you can copy /var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/IconSupportState.plist to your computer over SSH just to be safe. Upload that file back to the same spot if it does mess up your folders.

(18 Sep '12, 20:25) kirb ♦ kirb's gravatar image

Before I got your previous message I wash"t sure you were there and it seemed a good plan so I enabled compatibility with infinifolder and got it in a loop again. I need to remove infinifolders completely like you suggested then retry the respiring

(18 Sep '12, 20:40) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

I just had a bad thought.....I forgot to un-enable infinifolder compatibility before removing infinifolder and it took a long long time after the icon bar went all the way up before it gave the respring button

(18 Sep '12, 20:47) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

doing a respiring after removal of infinifolder ....hoping to be fortunate this time

(18 Sep '12, 20:52) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

Yes, I would recommend continued respiring. :D

(18 Sep '12, 20:54) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

i also have infinidock and infiniboard but that should be a non-issue I'm assuming but who knows it"s still in respiring .....

(18 Sep '12, 20:54) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

Google "respiring." Then facepalm. :D

(18 Sep '12, 20:56) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

I don't know what made me put went safe mode again with pop-up box

(18 Sep '12, 21:00) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

it fits.....I'm respiring over the safe mode.....I may need to remove FolderEnhancer even though it says it works with5.1.1 as much as I want it to work and don"t wish to remove it....I may need to

(18 Sep '12, 21:06) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

.....but yes....continued respiring is ideal in us humans LOL

(18 Sep '12, 21:09) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

I seem to be in a loop still so it may be that it wants to conflict with all infini_ or I need to remove FolderEnhancer altogether after re-install of infinifolder

(18 Sep '12, 21:12) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

This time I'm Not In Safe Mode ( encouraging or no ? ) however I am in a " Mobile substrate { for lack of a better term } failure. ....maybe reinstall mobile substrate and respring ?

(18 Sep '12, 21:22) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

You should try uninstalling all of your tweaks, which you can do by uninstalling MobileSubstrate. (Don't forget to write down a list of your tweaks.) Then reinstall FolderEnhancer. Continue reinstalling your other tweaks until you get safe mode - whichever one you installed before the respring into safe mode is the culprit.

(18 Sep '12, 21:27) kirb ♦ kirb's gravatar image

Thanks.....yes I need to bookmark that link you put earlier. That seems a perfect plan to isolate it plus resolve conflicts of similar tweaks too. I may need to try that tomorrow. If your here I hope to catch you then. Thanks have a great night ( both of you ).

(18 Sep '12, 21:33) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

No problem :)

(18 Sep '12, 21:37) kirb ♦ kirb's gravatar image

Still awake. It was FolderEnhancer. Removed it and it was a new problem after putting in caused a new problem which I'll post in a seperate spot because of what it did to Cydia itself.

(19 Sep '12, 00:04) FastEddieSRT FastEddieSRT's gravatar image

You've installed an incompatible tweak. Try the instructions at this FAQ entry to remove the incompatible tweak.
