How to fix some mysterious problems.

On my iPod touch 5th gen running iOS 8.1, my iPod seems to respring randomly when I run "Heavy" apps that use a lot of ram. Even though I have nothing installed from Cydia, it still happens. It seems like just being jailbroken seems to significantly slow my device. Anyone else with this issue?

I have the same issue and after reading this I now understand why my device only resprings in certain apps .. even after the so called "update" for pangu 0.3 it didnt fix anything still same issue .. hope a real fix comes soon... for now I have found using icleaner and cleaner useful and then rebooting after both are done ..

It's total b.s. I still got a bad safari, still randomly respringing,and my volume cuts out. Updates are not helping.

This Reddit post may be able to shed some light:

High CPU usage on some devices

As the Cydia homepage says: "We are looking into an issue where on some boots there is a lot of background CPU usage (we do not yet know what is causing this)." This seems to be happening on older devices (32-bit devices) such as the iPhone 5. The symptoms may be a hot device, battery drain, or seeing launchd or other daemons using a lot of CPU. There is no real workaround for this yet; disabling random daemons can easily cause more problems than it solves. You can try rebooting again; the problem doesn't seem to happen on every boot.

Maybe its apples dirty revenge for jailbreaking and their way to get a newer device ;D. Just kidding.
