EDIT: I posted this on Reddit as well and got the suggestion to delete /var/mobile/Library/Caches/*.csstore, and that worked, so I no longer require assistance. Thanks!

A little more than a week ago, I was editing a theme on my 4S and had to respring after saving the theme to the phone. Instead of respringing, however, the phone decided to instead shut off and then go into a never-ending boot loop. A few days before, I had my phone factory unlocked by, but I had still been using the phone and respringing/rebooting after that before it broke. As I was busy over the past week, I never got a chance to really check anything out, but I decided to plug my phone in and run iPhone Configuration Utility's console log today and nearly drowned in errors and warnings. Note that even though the phone never passes the boot screen, it does behave normally in iTunes and iExplorer as if nothing is wrong, and I've uninstalled the theme I had put on it as well as Winterboard itself just to be certain. Any idea what's going on? I'll attach the console log and list all of my current tweaks and such to help figure it out. The phone is running 6.0.1.

+1 for detailed question. I love you.

Hold Volume-Up when booting up the phone, and it should boot up in safe mode. Once you're there, you can uninstall the tweaks from Cydia.

I've already tried that and force-restarting with the home and power button; the loop just starts up again anyway.

Since iTunes and iFunbox see it you can try running SemiRestore from

I'll try that, but looking at some of the log comments gives me the impression that it might be a system issue, and SemiRestore only fixes user-level issues. Trying it once I figure out the SSH version.
