saurik and others are aware of this... its a bottleneck issue or something in the new cydia... it should be fixed, just no one knows when...

Ok so I don't need to add anything else like untethered redsnow to fix the problem I just need to wait for the jailbreakme update to fix this?

when/if you can get on cydia... look for CORONA, which will untether your device if it is currently tethered... No jailbreakme will be issued for the latest untether... that is what corona will do...

Not quite sure what you mean by tethered but I used the jailbreakme on my iPhone 4. I am still able to use cydia and apps like skyfire but none of the theme apps. Will the corona untethered fix my problem.

Corona is for iOS 5.0.1. You must be on 4.3-4.3.3 if you used jailbreakme. If you're just having theme issues, it's probably unrelated to the current cydia troubles.

Also activator says phone is running in safemode anyway that might be the problem

Can anyone tell me how to get out of safemode so that activator works

(28 Dec '11, 12:30) Kybrin Kybrin's gravatar image

Fixed the problem! Uninstalled apps and reinstalled activator and winterboard. Thanks for the help.
