How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm using an iPhone 5 with 9.0.2. Upscale works perfectly with anything that's not iPhone 6+ resolution. If I select 6+, a part of the screen flashes rapidly between what should be there and some mashed up pixels when anything moves on the screen. It always flashes in a different location for different movements. Is there anything to do about this?

Nope. Both Upscale and LittleBrother have issues with the 6+ resolution on 3,5" and 4" iPhones. Until the devs fix this, there's nothing you can do.

Beware, you can get stuck in the 6+ resolution, you will enter Safe Mode which can only be fixed with uninstalling Upscale, but that doesn't reset the resolution (since Upsale uses cycript). You'll need to use a terminal to reset it.

Thanks for the info, I'll stick with 6 resolution then. I can't get stuck in that one, right?

Nope. I've never seen anyone posting about problems with the 6 resolution, and I haven't experienced any either.
