How to fix some mysterious problems.

so I have an iPhone 5S, I recently jailbroke my iDevice with evasi0n jailbreak tool. everything works fine until I installed a tweak to use it for whatsapp from ModMyi. so the usual, nothing else but to press the "restart spring board" button right after the installation. after that i got into safe mode thinking that it was normal. next thing you do, the usual steps to exit safe mode which can be fairly found in first ten Google search. also this websites is most useful but didn't think it was a complicated issue. so I click on modify in Cydia on the packages that have recently been installed for me to remove it. and we restart spring board again, and there, no more safe mode. however, im stuck on safemode whenever i install any tweak from BigBoss to Zod. Note: the tweak doesnt work after installing and entering safe mode.

EDIT: so anyone?


The tweak won't work in safemode that's the point of safemode.

Click recent remove last few tweaks and reboot.

If that doesnt work list all repos and tweaks Installed

You need to make sure your cydia tweaks are compatible with your iOS version, since iOS changes not all are compatible with every single iOS version.

You might try to reinstall the cydia installer and the cydia substrate [best guess] if that didn't work, remove cudia substrate [which removes all of your tweaks] then start adding your tweaks again. Note : try to remove untrusted repos [which cydia warns you about when you first add it] Properly it's the reason of that problem you're in . I hope i helped.
