How to fix some mysterious problems.


I upgraded to 4.2.1 from 4.1 and ran the windows rc5b2 jailbreak.

after i make any phone call (entered via keypad manually, selected from contacts, or selected from favorites), the call connects, but when i end the call (far or near end), the status changes from "call ending" to "call ended" and then the phone seems to hang.

SSH is still responsive, top shows springboard using lots of cpu (between 62 and 121.3%). after a few seconds, the phone resprings into Safe Mode and I get a message about MobileSubstrate protecting me from the problem. I press restart which resprings into regular mode and all is okay until i place another call.

upon further investigation, top shows that springboard uses lots of cpu as soon as i place the call and stays crazy during the whole call length, which'll certainly affect battery life.

i've already powered off and powered on. behavior does not occur during inbound calls. any ideas?

multicleaner is known to not work right with 4.2.1. It caused me weeks of frustration on my iPad. Somewhere on here, someone, @Endareth maybe, was compiling a list. Troubleshooting is simple but tedious. Uninstall all extensions and re-install one by one until you see the problem behavior. Oh wait, no, it was lockdown I had the problem with. Same concept though.
