How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello, I am having trouble opening Settings on a iphone 6plus v8.1.1, after jailbreaking with Taig. When I touch the icon to open it, the screen opens to a white blank page for a split second, then closes back to the home screen. I have tried removing questionable version compatible apps added via Cydia, but nothing changed. I also tried starting in safe mode and I did get Settings to open that way. While in Settings then, I noticed that all items that I had loaded via Cydia were absent. Even winterboard which I believe comes standard with jailbreaking was absent. However, I'm not sure if this is a result of just being in safe mode or not?

Since Settings opens while in safe mode. Does that indicate that the jailbreak itself was successful? And the problem lies in what i've added after that? I ask as a means to decide if: 1) I just delete more or 2) restore and re-JBreak. (which I really loathe to do) lol

Thanks for your help. Its very much appreciated! :)

When your are in safe mode, all tweaks are disabled so if you are able to open settings in safemode then some tweak must be causing this problem. Please list all tweaks and sources/repos so we can try and help you figure out which tweak is causing an issue. Thanks.

One quick question before I provide my list. In order to best comply with site policies AND still get help for my issue ;). Are merely listing repo's that give the warning before adding, a violation? even though nothing piratical has been downloaded from them? Just checking.... thanks

If you've installed repo that host piracy remove them and their tweaks or restore.. You have no idea what harm they can do ......sorry my bad do is knackered xD

Using those repos makes it very hard to diagnose problems. Generally if you do t use them ...stuff works.

Like@tilerone says above, you're better off restoring. Even when you accept those shady repos, and you don't necessarily download any of their tweaks, some of them want to install items right off the bat and give you an update badge. I would bet that most people would automatically update and this is where your install could be borked ( even without downloading anything ). Much better to stick with the standard repos, and always pay for your apps and tweaks to support the developers. Otherwise they would have no reason to keep bringing us new stuff......
