    Default Don't install rotation inhibitor for SB settings
    I installed it, my phone went into safe mode and winterboard was disabled. My theme was gone and the phone was back to stock except for the 5 icon collum. Once i uninstalled it everything was normal, so i would advise people not to install rotation inhibitor for SB settings.

    unnecessary safe mode can be fixed by respringing

    it probably crashed because you were running low on system resources

    it went into safe mode right after i closed cydia. Then once i resprung it all the themes, tweaks that winterboard does were gone or disabled.

    did you try restarting the phone instead of just a respring?
    what other proccess' are you running? background apps?

    but yes, him does have a point, the phone usually crashes like that when you have waaayy too much going on

    i had same problem and i had 33mb free memory before i installed it.
    respring/restart doesnt help
    it disabled winterboard, same as southfour.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    Same here...38mb free before installing it. Bam! Safemode and theme-free. Great idea though. Maybe they will fix it.

    I installed it, it didn't crash me, but it doesn't work, in fact, it keeps it rotated so I can't change it to portrait mode. Great idea, but it just isn't working

    Same here, not a single problem with it at all. Everything's working as it should be.
    It must be conflicting with something you guys have installed.
    If people are still having this issues, try sorting it out by disableing all mobile substrate extensions in SBSettings 2.99, installing the toggle and then activating one extension after another, to see what causes these crashes.

    Press and hold the toggle and see the magic

    Rotation Inhibitor 0.4 has just been released in Cydia. Can anyone verify if it works on iPhone 3GS?

    I've heard that it dumps into safe mode if you shake the iPhone.

    WHEW!!! my phone is crashing left and right!!!
    It even crashed during a phone call! ive never had that happen before! I wasn't sure if it was this or the Weather Icon update the came through.

    Are some of these updates not even tested before they're released to the world to jack up millions of iPhones for people that depend on their phones????

    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    THANK GOD FOR SPRINGBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!
