How to fix some mysterious problems.

This post is in effort to help you avoid (some) frustrations. I had some issues after using last GP b2, namely it took around 3-5 min to boot iP4, it booted in 'safe mode', the bluetooth (headset) crashed the phone. After redoing the whole thing (restore fresh with 4.2.1), I run GP b4 (WIN 7, 64) and installed Cydia, it all went very smooth, no problems.... So next step, tweaks and apps. One by one, reboot and so on, and I found cause of slow boot, 'springcleanup' as nice as it is, it took 4 min to boot iP4, uninstalled and no problem, back to 40 sec reboot. The farther you go into the forest.....test drove 'Mcleaner' and guess what? It loocked the wholle phone and crashed it and that was the reason for my BT (headset) not working. Got rid of it and no problem. My point is: go step by step, some app are not compatible with 4.2.1 and that could be really 'painful', as for the GP.....THANK YOU GUYS...

Yes, that is what I've used. 'Mcleaner" crashes the phone and "springCleaner" makes 4min boot unpleasant realty.
