Thread: Respring on Home button press

  1. #1
    Default Respring on Home button press
    I am having two serious issues on my iPhone 3gs. My phone resprings (spinny circle in center of screen that goes to lock screen) every time I hit the home button. Everything was working fine until about five minutes ago when I installed Cydelete from Cydia. I have already tried uninstalling it and it had no effect.
    Also, my phone re-springs itself every 20 seconds or so. And sometimes it just locks up and responds to nothing but a forced reboot (home + power hold). I have had my phone jailbroken for a while, but had to take it to an Apple store yesterday because my screen cracked so I restored it to 4.0 (no other choice, 3.1.3 restore didn't work for some reason). Now, as I am writing this, I just had to force reboot my phone, and it tried to respring at the Apple Logo bootup. Should I just restore and start over?
    Thanks

    Restoring now
    ---

    Restore finished. But, I just started reinstalling my cydia stuff and then the problem came back. At first I thought it was one of the Sinful cracked apps I downloaded, but that wasn't it. I only got to install some apps before it started.
    Here is a list of all my apps:
    Activator
    AT&T carrier logo
    Backgrounder
    BTStack Keyboard
    Categories
    Data Toggle
    DeJaVu Sans font
    Digital 7 font
    Doodle jump remix
    Font swap
    Fontswap starter
    Futurama bold font
    Gv mobile plus
    I hate comic sans font
    Iblue theme
    Ibluenova
    Infiniboard
    Multi icon mover
    NCIs ringtone
    OCR a font
    Openssh (with passwords changed)
    Quickreply for SMS
    Sbschedule
    Sbsettings
    Screensplitr
    Sinful iphone repo prep
    Winterboard

    I really need to get this fixed.
    What should I do to fix this?
    Thanks

    Already tried that. No joy. Also uninstalled SBSettings. Nothing. I am going to systematically erase everything that I installed and figure out which one it is.
    Any other tips?

    --
    Not:
    Activator
    SBSettings
    ATT Logo
    Backgrounder
    BTStack Keyboard
    Doodle Jump Remix

    Well, sort of found it. Right after I uninstalled Doodle Jump Remix, it worked normally, and then it went back to misfunctioning.
    So the list goes on:

    FontSwap (and all associated fonts)
    GVMobile +
    Winterboard (and all associated themes) Hmm...this requires multiple presses of the "Reboot Device" button
    Sinful Prep
    Infiniboard (On the little page dots, it moved to the first one then respringed)
    MultiIconMover (On the little page dots, it moved two pages back then respringed, so it is working but not fast enough)
    QuickReply for SMS

    Aahahahah! :-)
    It was QuickReply for SMS! My home button is working again! Hooray!

    Now I am going to re-install QRSMS and see if it happens again!
    Yep! It happened again! Quick Reply was the culprit!

    in case someone is interested, quickreply for sms was causing it. update to the new version in cydia and it should work fine as per normal now.

    it scared the hell out of me too :/
