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.

So I recently upgraded to evasi0n 1.1 yesterday and today I upgraded some tweaks, though I didn't download any new ones.

I don't know what caused the problem, but here it is.

When I open cydia, the screen immediately shrinks to the top left corner. At first glance, it just looks like the iphone version of cydia. But when I try to download, upgrade, remove, or reinstall tweaks, the screen goes completely grey making me unable to complete the process. I can't make any changes whatsoever on Cydia.

Is there any way around this? I understand I can just restore than jailbreak again, but I don't want to do this every time it happens. Please help! I already tried rebooting a respringing

Here's a photo of what I mean
