If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

I have an iphone 4 (globally unlocked) and JB. I'm running 5.0 (9A334) and haven't had any issues thus far. I saw 9 updates in cydia yesterday and updated them. But when I restarted my springboard, it would only boot in semi-teather. I tried using redsn0w to just boot, it goes through the entire process, I get the pineapple logo on my phone, then it goes to the loading wheel. The loading wheel just spins and doesn't go further than that. I let it sit for a couple hours and didn't advance. I also tried re-JBing without installing cydia and have the same issue. I can boot up it up holding the volume button to bypass the mobilesubstrate but I don't know how to identify whats causing the problem. Im using crashreport but it just shows normal non-jb apps. helppppppp. thanks.
