Thread: SpringBoard crashed

  1. #1
    Default SpringBoard crashed
    I am in safe mode and it says to reboot or restart springboard to go back to normal but it's not working. What should I do?

    activator won't crash your springboard. you may have downloaded/installed and tried to run a theme that doesn't work. just uninstall any package you have recently installed via cydia then respring. do it one at a time and you will eventually find the one causing the problem

    Yeah, I do. This happened to me after I tried to add these themes I downloaded online. I uninstalled winterboard and then reinstalled and everything is fine. Like the guy above said if you know the exact theme that caused this problem just get rid of that.

    After I installed a theme my springboard kept crashing putting me into safe mode. I removed that theme and I still kept crashing. I removed winterboard and still kept crashing. I started going through cydia and as soon as I removed Activator my phone was stable, no more safe mode. I reinstalled Activator and I'm still ok, but now I can not activate facetime.

    So as of now, my phone is running ok but I cant activate facetime regardless of what I try. This only happened after installing a new theme.

    I will say I did the JB the night it came out and I had to install iphonedelivery to get my mms and facetime but didnt have any issues after that.

    I have tried to restore back to factory but for whatever reason every time I try i get a message saying that the update server cannot be contacted. Any help would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

    I would just restore. Are you on iOS 4? Use Rock and read some reviews before you install apps that may not be ready for the new OS.
