    Angry iPhone 5 quarter of the screen diplayed in top left corner
    This is what happens to me after I reboot my iPhone 5.


    I need to respring to get it working again, but the only way for me to be able to respring at this point is to reinstall something from Cydia...

    Anybody else experienced something like this before? (I mean I've seen it before, but not on the iPhone 5).

    Thanks

    I had that happen after installing the "More Icons" tweak.
    For me, it was likely conflicting with the Five column springboard, Five row dock, and/or Five row switcher.
    I did a hard reset (hold power and home button till the device shuts off), then boot to safe mode (hold the volume up button while powering on the device, and continue holding till it boots).
    Once booted to safe mode, launch Cydia and go to
    Manage > Packages and remove More Icons or whatever tweaks you installed prior to your screen issue.
    Cydia will restart springboard afterward. Now, reboot the device.
    Go back to Cydia and grab SBSsettings for quick access to a respring function.
    Hope this helps...

    Yes I do have all those tweaks you mentioned. Thank you for you valued advice.

    I was also suggested to install UIDevice Crasher from Ryan Petrich repo which I did and this is what I get tho:

    I'd prefer to keep all these tweaks :P hence I'm contacting all the devs behind all my tweaks.

    Luckily I don't need to restart my phone very often.

    No telling... With the i5 just now hitting the jailbreak scene, there's plenty of stuff needing updating, to play nice.
    I don't have biteSMS. I got the whacked-out screen directly after installing More Icons, and rebooting.
    Uninstalled it, rebooted, and my phone was happy again.

    The latest update for More Icons *should* resolve this reboot issue. However, it seems my license server is having issues right now, so you might not be able to get it to work yet.

    It was an exciting 99 cents... let me tell ya! (Already owned Shrink)
    I'll give it a little while, and try it out later.
    Five column SB, Five icon dock\switcher have been suiting me.

    Thanks for taking your time checking this. Are you 100% sure that More Icons caused this?

    I already owned shrink too, but I kinda liked this one. but then again Shrink only shrinks icons.

    Likewise. I only mentioned Shrink because owning it offered the discounted price of $.99 for More Icons.
