How to fix some mysterious problems.


Hey, I have 2 things, one, I've installed several apps / packages from cydia, I suspect one of them is causing my i4 to run quite slow, lots of lag, to make the icons jiggle, I have to hold for way too long, then I take my finger off and the icon still stays dark for another second before the icons jiggle, then to exit out I press the home button and it still takes another second of waiting before they stop wiggling. Anyone find what causes this?

Also, RIGHT after upgrading to 4.2.1 my 16gb i4, while plugged into my comp says my phone is a 22.8gb phone, Ive tested it, I can put 22 gb onto my phone no prob, so this issue alone would make for a WHOPPING thank you, even if I dont understand why it happened

Regarding the issue of slowness/lag, you'll simply need to either disable the mobilesubstrate based applications or uninstall them and see when the phone starts to respond like it should. There isn't any way for us to know what causes the slowdown if you just say "I've installed a lot of cydia apps".

You'll need to investigate it yourself and uninstall/disable them one by one

Well a complete remove and reinstall of all cydia packages made things alot better, no conclusion on specifically what caused the issue
