I just jailbroke my iPhone 3G today using redsn0w to iOS 4.2.1
Now I am having a problem with any url in an email crashing springboard (whatever that is)
I even tried a test email to myself using a simple url, such as Google and it still crashes
How can I fix this?

I agree, not being jailbroken is frustrating.
In order to get Cydia to work I had to redo the jailbreak again. Then the icon came back and Cydia worked.
The only problem is the url in emails. I have to be careful to try and not accidentally click on a link or it crashes springboard.
Hopefully someone will respond with a fix

Since there appears to be no fix for this issue, can anyone tell me how I can go back to Ios 4.1?
I am tired of all the crashes and other issues with 4.2.1
I did save my SHSH using tiny umbrella like someone told me a few versions ago.

The only way to solve this problem is to remove SBSettings. I had this same issue. I couldn't click any link for it to switch an app (i.e. click a URL in my email for it to open Safari) without it crashing and rebooting in Safe Mode. I also had the problem with tapping reply on a text message alert, if I was in another app, then when it would try to switch the apps, it would crash and reboot in safe mode again.
I am running a 3G on 4.2.1. I have read many forums and this has been others solutions, so I uninstalled it. I do like SBSettings and miss it, but until they update it, I can't have the aggravation of always having my phone crash. Btw, my phone hasn't crashed...not one time, since I uninstalled SBSettings.
Just thought I would help out.

Will I loose any features if I remove SB Settings?
At this point as long it it stops the crashing, I will remove it anyway
Removed SBSettings and it did not fix issue

01-26-2011, 11:51 AM #8Fixed for me.
I had the same problem - I have a 2g non-mc ipod touch, upgraded from jailbroken 4.1.0 to 4.2.1, immediately jailbroke using redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 and restored my Cydia apps via AptBackup (with SBSettings included). Any time an app tried to access Safari or e-mail, or if I clicked on a link in an e-mail, the springboard would crash and boot in safe mode.
Here's what worked for me.
I uninstalled SBSettings using Cydia and re-springed, still had the same problem. I then re-jailbroke using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 (intended to attempt a tethered boot; did not realize it would not give me the option since my model does not require a tether). The first attempt at a re-jailbreak was unsuccessful - the ipod would not boot - but the second attempt worked fine. All my Cydia stuff is still there (minus SBSettings) and my icons and Winterboard settings are as I had them before the uninstall. So far I have not had another crash (granted, it's been about an hour. )
In retrospect I probably should have tried a plain 'ol re-boot after the SBSettings uninstall, before the re-jailbreak - that might have solved the problem. I might try SBSettings again in a few weeks when I feel up to dealing with another potential re-jailbreak, but for now I'm just glad my iPod works
Short version (Verified for iPod 2G NON-MC ONLY):
-Reboot and test to see if links still crash SB
-if it still crashes, re-jailbreak using redsn0w 0.9.6rc8
-if the jailbreak fails, try again until it does
-you should be golden!

I doubt it's SBSettings problem. The problem is due to multitasking failure on iPhone 2g/3g. When a URL is clicked, the app is switched to Safari and that's when the multitasking failed. And this problem also occur for example when you click on "Send SMS" to a contact on phonebook, which switches to the SMS app. The solution is www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=323402

Hmm. Thanks for the link. Does SBSettings require multitasking? Because all I know is, once I got rid of SBSettings and re-jailbroke, the links weren't crashing anymore.

pmaxv, I followed the instructions on your link and now have fast-app-switching capabilities. When I used redsn0w, I had the "enable multitasking" box checked - maybe that is causing problems with SBSettings. I will probably try SBSettings again when I feel like fiddling with another jailbreak
AustinHarleyD, what is the advantage to using Greenpois0n RC5? My device is a non-MC model, so it doesn't require a tethered boot with redsn0w.

The advantage is it is untethered, meaning that you can turn the ipod on and off and not have to worry about rebooting tethered. Also, it is not a beta, as the Redsn0w I used before Greenpois0n is. Another thing is, its hard to explain, but everything runs smoother on Greenpois0n than Redsn0w. I have had no problems with Greenpois0n whatsoever, but Redsn0w caused problems due to its tethered jailbreak. Some Cydia packages required a reboot, but you can not do that tethered.

Hi, I am not an expert, and I am not even an average user of iphone, but I have the same issue that tonyr4 had. The only solution I did found was installing zToggle (from Cidya) This app, disable the multitasking capabilities from your iphone. I have done this to obtain a better performance in my iphone 3G, but surprisingly this app solve the url problems inside my email. Maybe it was just a lucky hit or maybe this could help to anybody who doesnīt want to re-jailbreak or doesnīt know (like me) how to jailbreak itīs iphone.
Thatīs all by now. Hope this could help somebody.
