    Default Mail App keeps crashing.....
    My native email app for the most part won't load at all. If I get lucky and it actually does load, I'll choose an email and that will freeze the app and I have to close out of it. Anyone else experiencing this? I have an iPhone 4 with 5.1.1 and an absinthe 2.0.4 jailbreak.

    I did a full restore and re-jailbroke and that fixed it for about a week and now it keeps crashing again. Idk if it's a tweak conflict or what but it's really annoying and I don't want to constantly restore and re-break my phone. Anyone else seeing this with their phone?

    I have not have this issue, although I used redsn0w 0.9.12b1 to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1, not absinthe..

    try to do a fresh restore again, and this time use redsn0w to jailbreak instead of absinthe and see if the issue goes away

    do a test by running no tweaks, just apply the jaibreak and use it for about a week and see what happens

    I am also having the exact same issue. I have the same phone iOS version and jailbreak software. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would recommend both u guys to restore to a stock custom 5.1.1, with no jailbreak for a week or so

    If the problem stops then jailbreak using redsn0w, NOT absinthe and use the mail app again for about a week

    This will give you some insight on where the problem may occur

    I had the same issue with my iPhone 4 & found it to be my siriport. The port had been blocked & that caused certain native apps to react that way. Uninstalled all my siriport files & the issue went away.

    There is a tweak that did exactly that to me. It was a mail attachment opener thing.

    EVO's right I have i4 on 5.1.1 and I had put about 15 different tweaks and Siri port on it and mail start doing the same thing so I did fresh install but had some issues w/ iTunes error -1 and getting RedSnow to get 511 back, so I did my custom f/w in snow breeze then did iTunes with no problems, put all my apps and tweaks back and everything is good again.i thought it might be redsnow's new version.

    I found solution to fix mail.app crashing.

    Use filebrowser ("ifile" for example) and go to /var/mobile/library/caches/com.apple.mobilemail/ and delete or rename the file "Cache.db". Then restart your device. That's all. It should now working! Good luck!

    If any other app crashing, find it in the caches folder and do the same.
