How to fix some mysterious problems.

I jailbroke my iPhone 4 with Redsn0w on iOS 5 a couple days ago. I added the AndroidLock XT along with some other stuff. I guess they all work okay. but the problem is that when I turn the normal passcode lock off, it will crash and boot into safemode when I try to unlock it. I tried uninstalling AndroidLock XT but it still won't unlock without crashing. It unlocks fine in safemode so does that mean there is a Cydia app/tweak that is causing the problem? If I uninstall everything in Cydia and reinstall one at a time should I find the problem?

AndroidLock is nothing but a hassle. Restore, rejailbreak, and avoid AndroidLock.

Thanks for the reply but so far I know it wasn't androidlock. could be animate or vwallpaper 2. in the process of narrowing it down

it is androidlock, the end. this tweak activates and deactivates on the lockscreen and is know to cause a crash to safemode on unlock, avoid it like the plague.
