    Default Safari won't start/frozen - Iphone 4, 4.2.1 JB
    I know there are other threads on this topic, but none of them seem to address my exact issue.

    I am running an iPhone 4 with 4.2.1 that I recently JB'd. Everything is working fine but Safari.

    - It won't start, appears to be frozen
    - All icons are greyed out except the bookmark menu and the new window button. But, I can't press those
    - can't input anything in search or address bar
    - "+" button appears to be missing
    - it will quit if left open for about 10 seconds

    - I have cleared history, cookies, cache
    - Done reset

    - As far as I know I don't have Safari Download Manager installed. I didn't install it, and I don't see the icon for it that you see in some youtube videos.

    Does anyone have ANY other suggestions to try?

    Right now I am just running Atomic which works fine. I just don't like having a function completely broken on my iPhone, and I do like Safari for some things.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi, latest Greenpois0n.

    I haven't installed many packages yet. SBS Settings, Lockinfo, bite SMS. Same things I had when I was running 4.01 Jailbroken for the last year or so.

    Adblocker is installed but I shut it off because I wasn't sure if it was reacting with Safari in any way.

    If there is anything else I should be mentioning let me know. I don't know what info is needed.

    It sounds like something you installed in cydia is the culprit. Was it working fine after you jailbroke but before you started installing stuff?

    Ya it was. Is there a way I can ouput a list of what I installed with Cydia or display it on the phone somehow? I think I listed everything above, but maybe I was trying an app out and some point and forgot about it...

    You can see what apps/tweaks you have installed under the manage tab in cydia.

    Thanks for the help. I guess I will start with uninstalling Cydia apps to see what happens. I just hope I don't have to restore and Jailbreak again. I just got everything up and running great after being on 4.0.1 since it came out. I don't want to start all over lol.

    I guess there is no way to just reinstall Safari on it's own?
