Thread: iPhone loses music and contacts
09-05-2011, 08:49 AM #1iPhone loses music and contacts
My GSM iPhone 4, jailbroken on 4.33, periodically shows no content in the iPod app and the contacts. Sometimes a reboot fixes the issue, sometimes not. I have too many tweaks, etc. to list here. I've tried removing various Cydia add ons, but no luck. Oddly, when the phone has been powered down overnight, it usually doesn't have the problem when turned back on. Any ideas?

My advise? You won't like it
Restore it and pay a lot more attention to what you install. There are so many tweaks, apps, and junk available it's easy to add conflicting and unfriendly stuff. This occurs frequently to those who install unauthorized or unpaid cracked apps.

As I said, you wouldn't like my advise
After years of troubled iPhones, now I'm very careful when installing apps and tweaks. I investigate the app, the date of the last update, the author, and the source repo before doing anything.
Maybe someone has experienced your symptom and can recommend a solution.

Look through every app you have installed in cydia, and uninstall whatever you dont need. Be careful not to delete packages that say they are essential packages. (you can uninstall some very important stuff if you have cydia on developer mode).
If this doesnt help, try uninstalling apps/tweaks that you DO use.If i helped, don't be afraid to hit the thanks button. It won't bite!!!!
How may I hack you?

Good to hear. About a year ago I realized about 3 of my installed apps were messing around with the battery percentage. It was a wonder it worked at all !! From then on, it was apparent to me I needed to pay more attention.
