How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a really weird bug on my iPhone 5 running jailbroken iOS 7. My phone just refuses to open up any files in any app. No matter if it's a PDF that I'm trying to open in Mail, or a .jpg I'm trying to view in Dropbox, all I ever see is a loading animation, which never opens up the file. The only exception appears to be that I can open any file that was actually created on the phone, like a picture in the photos app. Starting the phone with mobile substrate disabled completely fixes the problem, so I'm thinking it has to be a tweak I have installed (right?). Are any of these tweaks known to cause this kind of problem, or is this not the issue at all?

Straight off the bat I see nothing that would cause this issue (I could be wrong) so.........What repos do you have added?

I think the only one I've added is FilippoBiga, for LastPic

I'd remove tweaks one at a time in reverse order you installed and test after each uninstall till you find the culprit

Thanks for that advice. I removed them in groups of 3-4 because I was impatient, and I've narrowed it down to being either statusvol or officer. Both are in alpha, so I'll probably just avoid both. Now time to re-install all the other tweaks...
