I have a problem with my iphone 4 running ios 5.0.1 (jailbroken).
whenever i plug my iphone into any usb on my or my friends laptop (tried macs and pcs) nothing happens... nothing at all. when i plug my phone into wall-charger it charges no problem.
i tried entering recoverymode and then connecting. my computer then recognized my phone. tried exiting recoverymode (after windows installed drivers) and tried reconnecting, still no sign of connection, no charging, no syncing.
this happended recently. have had no problem connecting earlier, but has been some time since my last sync.
can this have anything to do with cydia-tweaks blocking my phone from connecting to itunes?
is there a way for me to reboot my phone into safe-mode and would that make a difference?
any help will do! (its not my cable(s) or not my computer/usb/itunes install...)
in short: iphone wont connect to computer unless in Recovery Mode. Iphone wont charge in computer, only if connected to wall. Tried several other computers/laptops/macs. So it has to be my phone.... what do I do?

This isn't uncommon for jailbroken users, You will have to restore in order to be able to have it recognized. Did you notice this happening after installing a certain tweak or mod?Great minds discuss ideas.

PhotoAlbum+ for instance?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I have the same exact problem, one day it worked, then the next day it didn't. the last tweek i remember installing is Fusion, after it installed it told me to respring but when I diid that it was missing some plugins, so I reinstalled and then respringed again, then reboot and the missing plugins were there. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Another thing I did was I downloaded music from another itunes (not the computer my phone is synced with) and I used this playlist/autofill method to be able to transfer some songs to my phone. Maybe that's the culprit?
Also photoalbum+ used to work fine but now all of the sudden it causes me to not be able to view pics sent or received in bitesms. weird.
