    Default iphone 3GS Camera not working, now all apps not working!
    Hi there, new to forum

    My (Jailbreakme.com) Jail broken iPhone 3GS iOS 4.4.3 is slowly loosing the plot... (I previously had greenpoison jailbreak and have all SHSH blobs on tiny umbrella etc)...

    1) Camera
    The Camera hasn't worked for a few weeks now (phone was already jailbroken). It opens to the shutter screen but then stays like that (with the camera/video slider pulsating).
    I have tried the following:
    • Rebooting the Phone
    • running the Camera in "Safe Mode" - it still does the same
    • trying other camera apps
    • resetting all settings in General/Settings etc
    • STRIPPED THE PHONE, REMOVED THE CAMERA & rebuilt (using the same camera)
    • Using SBSettings to reset all permissions to 755
    • Tapping the screen whilst Camera app is on
    • Deleting all photo folders on the phone
    • Messing around with ifile deleting various camera folders suggested on other forums (searched on google)
    • Restoring the phone in itunes... then spending the next 493 hours sorting it all out again, cydia, folders etc.
    • I have seen some people on other forums have suggested setting up as a new phone in itunes, which I haven't done as for most people who tried this it did nothing...

    So what can i do. The camera app works and if I hold down power/home it makes the camera sound but no picture or screencap. Do I need a new camera module and if so, as I'm waiting for the iphone5 is it worth paying for it?

    2) Apps not running
    When in Jailbreak mode the phone works but nothing else - if I go into safe mode everything works. What can that be? This has only happened recently and I have deleted any Cydia changes I made after it started happening... Help?!

    I have logged into all itunes accounts and downloaded a "free app" as this is supposed to help - but hasn't.
    I have backed up and synced to itunes but this hasn't helped either
    Shall I just give in and use my 3GS as a decoy in my car dock for criminals to steal or is this all recoverable. I love my phone and will feel like half of me has died (until i get the new iphone5!)

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Before I gave up and used the 3GS, I would try ...

    Restore, set up as new phone ---- then test (don't jb just yet) !!!
    If it works (and it should unless there's a hardware problem) .... then some app/tweak is causing the problem.

    Ok thanks, I kinda guessed that was the last resort... I'll give it a go.
