    Default Safe Mode?
    Today I updated an App Store app and in the middle of it my iPhone rebooted and it said something about being in Safe Mode...all my dock icons were to the right, like off the screen, and the background was grey instead of black....All i had to do was reboot it and it was fine but has this happened to anyone else and what does this mean?

    I have had this also, you need to go to Cydia and check for updates. This was mainly happening because of Intelliscreen and a clash with another program (Search the forum for safe mode and you will find the thread), they released an update a few days ago and the 'safe mode' messages have ceased for me.

    according to saurik, intelliscreen would crash and mobile safemode would then come up so that you could fix the issue. Think of it as a nice replacement for the swod.

    It's not intelliscreen specific, basically anything that would normally make your phone crash instead leads to this.
