I'm experiencing a strange problem with my jailbreak. I am on 5.1.1 and I have jailbroken with the newest version of redsn0w. Every few days my whole system seems to slow down until I either install a new tweak or I remove one and reinstall it. I use zephyr to close apps and once I close one if I try to tap my apps along the dock to open it the phone goes into "jiggle mode" Again, that happens until I install a new tweak or reinstall. I have done a fresh restore and JB but then it comes back. I suspect that my prior jailbreak and info have remained on the phone since I restored it from backup and that's the reason for the persistent. However, I'm looking for a more convenient solution. Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.

However, what you need to do in other to eliminate whether the issue is caused by the tweaks you installed or whether it is something else, is to restore to a custom firmware and DO NOT restore the backup.
Then test the icons on your dock again and see if the jiggle mode disappears. If it does disappear, it is recommended that you just install Zephr and test the other issues out. Dont install any other tweaks.
This will help you pinpoint more closely where the issue may lie, and will give you a better point of elimination!

Lol is there an echo in here. It's fine. I've got some time to kill in the morning. Thanks anyway, though.

Restore and start fresh, not from a backup. As evo stated in the previous post(null)

Yeah. I know that not restoring from backup is ideal. That was implied in my first post. I am aware that restoring at as new phone is best. However, it is rarely convenient. I was looking for a different option, one that might have been convenient. But thanks, none the less.

there is no "convenient" solution here.
you said so yourself: "I restored it from backup and that's the reason for the persistent.
The issue is coming from the backup you are restoring to.
There's no possible way to determine the issue from a backup unless you are a highly trained programmer that knows how to look at code.
There is only a "quick" solution, which is to restore without the backup.
If you really rely on that backup, then unfortunately I dont know what to tell you.
Even if its "not" the backup, you need to run some tests if you want to determine where the issue lies.
If you mean "convenient" as in "easy", there is no "easy" to determine the issue, if you can find it at all.
Some issues are not meant to be known, it just happens, and no one will know.
We can only move on from it.

iWipe. Cleared my cache. Seems to be working like a champ now.
And I meant "isn't ideal" when restoring from a backup.

At least I'm glad it's working now.
Let's hope there's no residual issues
