Well basically I opened Cydia, and there were two updates ready.
One was the update for gPower and the other one for the SQLite thingy. I updated both of them, and it installed them successfully.
It said "Restart Springboard" and I did. After that it was just stuck with "the wheel of death" spinning.
So I force-restared the phone and now its just stuck on the apple logo. It wont go any further. Can't even SSH.
Anyone know what I could do other than restoring in DFU mode?

Happened to me too. Of course I was on vacation with no computer around and had to depend on a GPS app to get home. That was fun. Anyway, the only way I was able to fix it was to restore
