How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello all!

So, here's the situation. Last night I went to install battery doctor from the App Store on my iPhone 6. It froze on install and after a while I decided to restart the phone. I'm new to iPhone, btw, but I'm not new to how things work considering I've had a iPod touch and jailbroke it and am familiar with Cydia. This may not be because of Cydia though so that's irrelevant. Anyway, I held the home button and power button down until it rebooted into the apple logo. It stayed for a while and then turned off so I held the power button down to turn it back on. It took a while to turn back on but afterwards everything functioned normally. With one exception... Each respring now takes forever in comparison to the 10 seconds it took prior to this situation. Could there be a file or something that's causing the respring hang that I could find and delete? Maybe from the botched install of battery doctor? I have used iCleaner pro to clean things out but that's a no go... Any insight on this would be most appreciated!!

Try rebooting into safe mode by holding volume button up. Then open Cydia and go thru your recent installs and delete one by one till you find the culprit.

My mistake, I forgot to mention that I went into Cydia and deleted all my recent installs from yesterday after this started happening. Could it be an older Cydia tweak and/or theme that has suddenly caused this issue? Or would this issue arrise pretty much immediately after installing a tweak? I'm sorry if that's a silly question, I'm still learning.
