How to fix some mysterious problems.

I've jailbroken my phone with Envasi0n and haven't had any problems until yesterday when I automatically installed the available "changes" in Cydia and since then have been stuck in safe mode. I've tried several times to restart springboard, but right after, it will just reboot and go back into safe mode.

I have installed:

BigBoss Icon Set Cydia Installer Cydia Translations envasi0n Folder Passcode FOlderEnhancer Mobile Substrate MyWi 6 SMS Timestamps SMS Ninja SUbstrate Safe Mode TetherMe Winterboard

I haven't had any issues with any of these prior to installing the updates, and am not sure what even was updated. Has any one had this problem or any idea how I can fix it?

You've got an incompatible tweak w/iOS 6.x

Compare your tweaks with Those and delete any not or partial compatible;

If no luck, fire up SBSettings by swiping your finger on your status bar - download it from Cydia if not installed -, click on More then scroll down and click on Mobile Substrate Addons and disable the ONE BY ONE until the bad guy is on your spotlight;

Once found, re-enable it in SBSettings and go uninstall it in Cydia.

Hope this helps,

Thanks eYe for the help,

I did just what you said and finally found the problem, it was associated with SMS Ninja, so I uninstalled it and all it well again.

Thanks again!
