How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, I have and rerestored and rejailbreaked my iphone 4 (4.2.1) 6 or 7 times since the last two days. The problem is that Greenpoison can't handle a reboot. It can handle a respring thought. The iPhone is stuck on the apple logo and I have to plug and unplug it several times to unfroze it. Most of the time, I have to do a complete restoration. What's wrong with greenpoison?

?Mac OS X 10.6.6, Phone 4 (4.2.1), iTunes 10.1.2 (17)?

If you've been doing it multiple times, something is not adding up. Are you using a hackintosh? People have mixed results on them and the devs say don't use them. Try using the new PwnageTool ( )if you are using a Mac and see how it goes. It fixes some of the bugs people were having when using greenpois0n alone to jailbreak. Check out iclarified for a tutorial: to make sure you are doing it properly.

Did you use Monte before? Anyway, try a fresh clean installation of 4.2.1, then jb with gp and install Cydia. Let us know if you still have problems then.

I did that 7 times. I checked the crash reporter and the boot logo app appeared to be the main culprit but after many tries, I found the issue. My problem occurred after the installation of several applications on Cydia yesterday. I've figured it out: There is a conflict with Overboard. I've just got rid of it. Now the reboot doesn't take 15 mins anymore. May be the next revolutionary Cydia's application could be a "super crash reporter" which will be able to determine which "mobile substrate applications" are in conflict each other. Thanks.

PS: (Boot Logo also doesn't work with any enhanced iPhone logos applications like retinaapp)
