    I heard there were problems with safari jailbroken on iOS 5, but a 'just boot tethered' option fixed it. Not sure what's happening in your case. What was the last tweak you installed?
    I just jailbreak, boot tethered and there is the problem. Before I install something else.

    Usually, just letting Cydia sit there for a few minutes, and then closing and restarting Cydia helps.

    The issue with installing a few tweaks is that many/most tweaks aren't fully compatible with 5.0 yet.
    And the default Winterboard and SBSettings definitely aren't compatible. Probably you shouldn't install ANY tweaks until Cydia is behaving stably and you have added the "BigBoss Beta" repository and the new Winterboard/SBSetting/etc from there.
    SBSettings is working with iOS 5 I have it installed. WB still isn't. I posted, a few post ago, a link to tweaks compatible with iOS 5

    Wow, that sucks... Not sure what the problem is. My only guess is that safari is unstable jailbroken;So I've heard
    Also did you restore from a jailbroken backup? That might be the culprit.

    I've had problems with a jailbroken backup without any of the above 'backup apps mentioned. It's just buggy to the point I need to restore and setup as new. Especially when you make a jump to a new OS. In my case I made the jump from 3.1.3 to 4.1. So I wouldn't say 'false breh

    Can we build a custom iPSW that "updates" only and does not jailbreak? This is in order to preserve baseband while maintaining all data.This way I can make an iOS5 backup and then restore to a fresh iOS5 install afterward.Is this possible?tim

    You should never use a Cydia package back-up app when making a major firmware upgrade (4.X.X to 5.X.X) because there is no way to know if the old packages are compatible with the new firmware. This can cause safe mode in most instances and the SWOD in other cases. You never know which app causes the mobile substrate error either so it's a huge waste of time. Re-download all your apps one by one and then make a new back-up.

    No unlock available for that baseband (that I'm aware of).
    You can Jailbreak but it will be "tethered" for now, which sucks,
    so you may want to wait for an untethered JB (due out soon).

    You might be able to use the iPad's baseband to do a carrier unlock,
    but that's tricky and has a possibility of messing up your phone (particularly, you may lose the GPS).

    Either way, best to wait.

    Maybe some one here can help me. I'm on iOS 5 with a Verizon iPhone 4 and I've tried 4 different times to jailbreak it with redsn0w 0.9.9b4. Everything works fine. I can get Cydia running and everything, but as soon as I download and package that requires mobilesubstrate, my phone goes into safe mode and I can't get it out. I've gone through and tried deleting the last package that I downloaded before my springboard crashed and I've even tried deleting mobilesubstrate, but nothing seems to work. I always end up having to just restore the phone and jailbreak it again. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I've never had it happen before.

    The countdown timers are a little off. It makes you hold the second step a little to long. Practice putting it into DFU mode and it will automatically advance to the next screen without pushing Next.
