What's your question exactly?

he wants to know how to stop it freezing

As ccg stated, yes I want to stop the freezing part, other than that everything was flawless. I don't know what made it to freeze!

what do you mean by freeze? Did you need to reboot? Did it respring? If so, in safe mode? It might be a package you installed from Cydia that isn't compatible with 4.2.1 yet.

maybe you're correct. whenever I received the text message during something else, it freezes or I could say superrrrrrr slow! it took forever to response, but everything is just too slow, even holding the sleep button to turn it off takes forever.

So it didn't respring at all? How low did the memory do, if you had it enabled in SBsettings?

I'm not sure I haven't the any cydia app at all after 'the complete upgrade' after initial jailbreak install.

There's two likely possibilities. First, you've got a package installed (something like BiteSMS, or whatever), that hooks into the SMS subsystem, and is failing for some reason, or second, your jailbreak wasn't 100% successful. If the first, you can find out by uninstalling anything that might be the culprit and see how you go. If nothing works, then a restore/rejailbreak might be needed.

no BiteSMS. possible on unsuccessful jailbreak, however, it worked fine on first couple days.
