How to fix some mysterious problems.

Here we go again. After having updated a lot of system packages in Cydia, I thought I might run smoother. Nope. Springboard crashes into safe mode at random intervals, so I cannot detect the reason. It got worse as I put in a new sim and changed location (incorrect passwords prompts for google services are frequent), however there are no baseband panics and I used that sim before and the prompts show normally. No new tweaks have been installed, last update was 3 weeks ago (Cydia, APT, flipswitch). Crash reporter doesn't even list those safe mode crashes. The interesting thing is when I am in safe mode and am scrolling through something, it might hang for 4-6 seconds. Surely no external dylibs are loaded in safe mode? Maybe someone had similar issues? i5, iOS 6.1

Can you list sources and tweaks you install?

I am going through all the ms tweaks now. Sources are default plus Karen's repo and the Japanese one for the baseband unlock. The tweaks are: Auxo, Activator, anyattach, batdetective, bitesms, bridge, bulletin, cameratweak, crashreporter, dream board, flagpaint, flex, infinifolders, lochhtml, mail enhancer, photo organizer, safari upload/download, sbsettings, tab+, store alert, wboard, zephyr Another weird issue I am experiencing is the springboard layout being reset to alphabetical. Seems to go back to normal in safe mode

I think I might have pinpointed the issue. After going through latest updates I reverted Activator to 1.9.8 from 1.9.9 beta. Seems like it didn't play nice with whatever I Had, though I disabled Activator's dylib to little effect.
