How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi all, I just noticed two problems - they are not something major, but I would be happier without having them.

1) I can't swipe through Springboard pages with two or three fingers. One finger works just fine, but when I use two or three, Springboard starts lagging and stucking. I noticed this when I installed app called MountainLionCenter (my iPad was crashing when I installed this and the app didn't work), but I uninstalled this app and even wiped data with iCleaner and the problem still persists.

2) When I switch apps with gesture (four fingers swipe) and still swipe to the left, the last app doesn't "bounce/shake", but I get to a black screen, which eventually closes. When I scroll to the right, the last app bounces/shakes, just how it should.

I tried to uninstall recently installed apps and cleaned data with iCleaner, but nothing helped. Does anyone know, what to do with it ? Do I have to restore my iPad and then re-JB to get rid of this ?

Thanks a lot,


Yes, I have those problems too. If you turn off your device and turn it on while holding the volume up button, it will boot the device without Mobile Substrate (disabling all your tweaks at once). Doing that, the problem went away and I can swipe smoothly with multiple fingers again.

Thanks for answering. I tried what you suggested, but it didn't help. :/ Both problems still present.
