    More info needed.
    Did it just start to do this?
    Did you just install something that may be affecting it?
    Did you just jailbreak?
    Did you sync your phone after you jailbroke it to a backup in iTunes.
    What OS?

    Need to know everything that you did when the problem started.

    OK, that's 2 questions, how about the others?
    Did you sync from a back up?
    Did you install Icy also?

    For me - Cydia will crash only when it's just about to download something. It started after I was having troubles purchasing from the Cydia Store with a Paypal account. As soon as I entered my Paypal account login and PW and hit 'login', it crashed.

    Have you tried removing what ever it was that you installed?
    My advise would be to restore and re-jailbreak it.

    Umm you remove it only through Cydia right? And sucks that I have to rejailbreak it -_-.

    @ ivanPK
    ^ I wonder if it has anything to do with when PayPal crashed on Jays site. Weird. Not sure the only way you can truly be sure if it's a software or hardware problem is to restore. You already have the iTunes update obviously so the restore process and jailbreak wouldn't take that long. ((I know, that setting your phone up again is a pain in the butt)) But better that the problem is cured.

    The major key to jailbreaking, especially with a major firmware update.

    This method has worked for some, and I would say it's worth a try.
    But you stated that your problem was from trying to install an app and then your phone crashed. This tells me that there is a different problem. Not the same type of problem you were having but go for it, see if it helps.

    No its the same problem but the first time it crashed and rebooted the phone was while installing a app, but the cydia still crashes.

    doesnt work :/
