How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, erveryone! Today I tried to install springtomize 2. As I looked on the installscreen, I found an error, like: "couldnt overwrite"

Not pretty sure, if it was Well, I respringed my ipad than, like cydia said. But while it tried to respring, i failed and felt into a respring loop. then I pushed down the power button for a few seconds, in hope, that the ipad will start normally. But it didnt. My iPad stucks now at the boot-apple logo.

My questions: - Why did that happen? - How can I fix it? - Is there any method, to NOT restore, but fix it? I want my ipad as it was before the installation.

More information: iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbroken by absinthe

with lots of hope

I just want to mention that most sprintomize 2 features do not work on ipad2 and or lead to bad sideeffects with other tweaks. Even on my 4s i deactivated most features as they are not stable. Coverflow dock for example often leads to other icons randomly being twisted. Hiding the lock slider does not only hide the slider, it simply disables unlock as long as the camera alwys visible button is not there to take a detour over camera app to home screen. 2.99$ seemed a reasonable price for me, but it seems its just a bunch of bugs.

I have an iPad 2 on 5.0.1, springtomize works for me. Im going to assume you didn't buy this tweak. In which case restore and buy it to avoid issue.

Yes.. It's a $3 package available on the BigBoss repo. If you're getting it for free, that's piracy, and most likely the reason you're having issues. The only thing to do now is restore and rejailbreak. Please don't continue to pirate, it is illegal and gives jailbreaking a bad name.

Not that'd I'd advise, chances are you have more than one cracked thing, the best is just to wipe it all otherwise yourebound to encounter more problems.
