How to fix some mysterious problems.

S Cydia notified me that about 13 upgrades were available and so I upgraded all of them. After about three minutes it finishes and at the end instead of saying "Restart Springboard" it said "Reboot Device", and so i tapped on it, And after it rebooted and I unlocked my device, it was in safe mode. Since this has happened before, I just hit restart. After respringing, it was STILL in safe mode. And then I tried rebooting it again But to no avail. I have iPod 4G 5.0.1

Often when installing other tweaks and/or upgrades and uninstalls a conflict with MobileSubstrate and or Corona is created. I have found that reinstalling MobileSubstrate and Corona followed by a reboot as the last things you do during a tweak install or uninstall will generally fix the safe mode or tethered problem, hope this helps!
