How to fix some mysterious problems.


Hey guys, I've got an issue that I've never seen before. Whenever I receive a message, SMS or iMessage, it sends my phone straight into safe mode. I have a 4S on iOS 7. It's usually when I am doing something else already, like on the net or in another app. Any ideas on what might be causing this?

List your installed tweaks. It's probably one or two are incompatible with iOS 7 or each other.

Are any of those tweaks 3rd party?

Well guys, I just found the answer to my own question. I had installed Tinybar, which is supposed to shrink the notification down. I uninstalled it and it's now working fine. Apparently, it really just crashes any app that you receive a notification about. Thanks for your help, but the problem is now gone. Watch out for Tinybar!

I would've been able to tell you that had you included it in the list of tweaks you posted. :P
