Thread: Constant Springboard Crashing Problem

  1. #1
    Unhappy Constant Springboard Crashing Problem
    I opened up Cydia earlier today and upgraded a few files:

    apt7-lib
    com.ashman.lockinfotwitter.list
    veency.list
    jp.ashikase.mousesupport.list
    openssh.extrainst_
    openssh.prerm

    And now it goes into a constant crash cycle, each time I reboot the device it says that the springboard has crashed and so I respring it and it just repeats. I've tried unistalling veency and it's assosiated files but that made no difference. As far as I can tell it could be related to the update to apt7-lib however I tried downloading apt7-lib_0.7.25.3-7_iphoneos-arm.deb (which is the prior version) and put it in the /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall folder and re-booted but still nothing changed.

    Anyone got any ideas of how to fix this cause I don't want to have to restore my device and run into the same problem later on.

    DONT restore, all u have to do is hold the power button and home button until the screen goes black and then turns back on, it's called a (reboot) for future reference

    Or delete everything u have installed in the last couple of days, don't forget to remember what I r deleting though

    I've already re-booted many times and I can't delete the apt7-lib because it will unstall Cydia itself.

    The same happend to me 2 days ago.
    Is your Lockinfo up-to-date?
    I was reluctant to update LI but had to after some recent updates.
    I used Rock Extentions to find out what was causing the constant crashing into safe mode.
    I disabled all add-ons and enabled them one by one until it crashed again.

    No I'm a bit reluctant to update it but I'll try it now and see if that helps.

    Hello. Not sure exactly what caused this problem but when I go to put in my password for the AppStore updates after I input the first letter the pop up keyboard vanishes and I can't get it back so ofcourse I cancel and repeat to to avail. Any ideas what I can do? Thx
