How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi JQA, My i5 running ios 6 has certainly seen better times, but this issue is new and odd. Whenever I launch and then minimise a 3rd party app it crashes/suspends (?), instead if staying in the background. This sometimes happens with native apps as well. Ram is always sufficient. As if iOS is trying to clean it itself. Anyone seen something like this? No new tweaks have been installed. iCleaner ran recently, PhotoOrganiser updated and broke the photo library, and Cydia updated. The issue does not appear in safe mode.

Wow, turns out Cydia crashes some 10 seconds in. Interesting

Your best bet at this point without losing your version and your jailbreak, is to head to Cydia (in safe mode if you cannot otherwise) and delete Cydia Substrate. This will erase anything jailbreak related from your phone except of course Cydia itself and the packages needed for the jailbreak to work. Then you can isolate the problem by reinstalling your tweaks one by one, and checking if the issue persists after installing each one.
