How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm showing "it Safe Mode" where the time usually is and when I choose it it gives me the message that Springboard has just crashed and that MobileSubstrate /did not/ cause this problem. It tells me to reboot or restart springboard. When I perform a hard reboot it just reboots in safe mode again. When I actually choose the "Restart" option from the SpringBoard error message it just sits there, locked up, and doesn't do anything. Any insight?

I have also, from safe mode, just tried turning the device off then back on and the apple appears, however never boots; just sits there showing the apple on a black screen.

You've installed some cydia tweak it doesn't like, probably something not updated for 4.3.1 yet. What's the last thing you installed?

mywi, quick sms, wi-fi sync, [redacted], sbsettings (don't think it installed), sbscalendar (don't think it installed), 3g Unrestrictor, ireal sms 3.0, maybe a few other things. I completely forgot that some things weren't going to be updated, I guess I can go back and find out what wasn't and delete that package.

Also, I just got a GPG error.

Yeah I'd just start over and install them one at a time, rebooting after each, that's the best way to find out what it was.

Hey, I have a lot of those apps too! Not everyone using all those are pirates. I've proudly purchased all of them, and have even donated to some developers such as @ rpetrich (creator of Activator and other programs) because of their excellent work, even when they don't ask for money.

It's those developers that make all the stuff possible when we jailbreak.

Supporting them with a few bucks is the least we can do.

I had the same problem, and it happened after i installed ireal sms 3.0 . (besides, it is the only app we have in common). so here u go, be aware of ireal sms 3.0 , it seems like sometimes it can be tricky
