Hi, I'm newbie here but I'd appreciate if someone could help me on this.

I've been dealing with constant resprings on my device since I bought it 2 months ago and, at first, I thought it was something related to jailbreak such as tweaks conflicting, jailbreak issues, etc., until I bumped into this thread on Apple's support website:

Whether it's a coincidence or not, I'm not sure... but I do have an iPhone 6 plus with 128Gb which seems the one where most issues are happening.

All of the resprings happen when I want to switch apps and use the native iOS task switcher to do so. As soon as I click on another app the phone resprings. It resprings really fast and it comes back on normal. CrashReport either says that no culprit was found or it gives me the warning that memory is low and that suspended apps will end with springboard being the largest process. Sometimes the resprings also happens when I background an app that is foregrounded. On average I'd say I get more than 10 resprings a days.

Anyways, I've been debugging and trying to find the issue for two months, so I've been using iCleaner to disable mobile substrates and uninstalling tweak by tweak in order to find a potential culprit but no success. The only pattern I found so far is that if I delete most of my tweaks from Cydia then my phone stabilizes and stops respringing. I don't think thou that there is a specific tweak that is causing the issue - I believe it's a matter of how many tweaks I have installed that make my springboard memory or CPU consumption increase. I believe this because I've tried so many different combinations of tweaks installed/uninstalled and there's no pattern at all... so I gave up trying to find a culprit that way.

Allow me to go to some of the facts:

  • Phone has been jailbroken on 8.1.2 with Taig

  • I don't have many apps installed (as some are saying that is the cause of the issue) - probably got less than 100 apps installed

  • I have CrashReport installed with all the debugging turned on and I constant receive warning messages such as "AppIndexer has crashed", "Low memory, suspended apps will end. Largest process is springboard"

  • with the latter on being the most critical in my opinion since I have noticed that the more springboard tweaks I install the more resprings I seem to get

  • A lot of people say this issue has to do with RAM memory management on the iOS version. When I use System Status app to check on my RAM, it says I have: 20.1% wired, 36.3% active, 15.7% inactive, 23.8% Other, and 3.5% free

  • Some people also say it's a hardware issue the Toshiba memory used by Apple by it doesn't seem to be a hardware issue to me... It pretty much seems to be only software since I actually got it to stop when I removed most of my apps

  • I haven't seen any blue, purple or red weird screens as some users have complained they're getting because a potential hardware issue

  • Installing tweaks such as LockHtml 4 and iWidget definitely increase the number of resprings I get as they directly affect springboard process(es)

Thanks in advance! Best,

Editing out piracy doesnt change anything you still get the same answer ....we don't support or assist pirates here.

You'll find a full restore solves your issues.

When users try to share their knowledge polite ...dont try to be smart..... Because your conclusion IS wrong.

Which part of: you're full of piracy, don't you understand? That's your problem, my friend. You have found out firsthand how pirating apps and tweaks destabilize your device. You can always restore to 8.2. Maybe if you paid for your apps, you wouldn't have had these problems.
