    Lightbulb How to disable Mobile Substrate Add-ons while on Safe Mode
    When you're on safe mode due to a buggy MobileSubstrate Add-on, SBSettings is disabled too, so there's no way to disable a particular add-on or all of them.

    So I found that you can disable whatever add-on you want using iFile or whatever File Browser.

    You need to go to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/ there you will find all the add-ons named xxxxx.dylib for the enabled ones and xxxxx.disabled for the disabled ones

    So you only need to rename the suspicious add-on to xxxxx.disabled in order to disable it

    And Viola! you just re-spring and the add-on won't mess again



    Hope this helps someone, cause I didn't find anything about this on the Web

    Thanks, but I dont understand why you would need to do this? Or Im missing something.

    If your phone goes into safemode, all you have to do is reboot it.

    The problem is if you reboot your iPhone, and the buggy Add-on still triggers the Safe Mode

    Makes sense, luckily Ive never ran into that issue, reboot with an immediate safe mode crash. Usually I can reboot and then disable whatever I need to in Sbsettings before another crash
