How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have ios 5.1.1 and I recently installed backgrounder, when I went ahead to remove it cydia would just crash before even loading. so I removed backgrounder using ifunbox but its not completely removed.

I tried using safemode, but touch screen doesn't seem to work in safe mode, I went ahead auto installed 0.9.4000 mobile substrate but still no difference.

So how do I get rid of backgrounder? it seems to be running(status bar icon appears when launching any app).

Install it again, go into Settings and enter the Backgrounder section and disable it. Then remove it in Cydia and respring.

I couldn't find the backgrounder.plist file. I used the search feature in ifile and found it then removed it. Restarted. now cydia works fine again.
