Thread: Safe Mode

  1. #1
    Default Safe Mode
    My phone keeps booting up in safe mode and I can't install or uninstall anything. I get the following error:

    /var/cache/apt/archives/com.sinfuliphone.appsync4_1.0.1_iphoneos-arm.deb trying to overwrite/usr/libexec/installed, which is also in package us.hackulo.appsync40.

    My son was playing with my iphone and don't know if he did something. I had appsynce 4 installed from hackulo, and now it looks like appsync was also installed from sinfulphone? when i go to sinfulphone repo, it doesn't look like that appsync was fully installed and got stuck in the middle somehow and now all has gone to hell in a handbasket.

    how can I get it to reboot normal and get rid of appsync 4 from sinful?

    Thanks in advance.

    im not 100% sure, but this happend to me this afternoon (the safemode part, not the error, just a sad iphone lockscreen). i did a hard/soft reset by holding the home button and sleep buttonn symiltaniously for 30 seconds and all seems to be fine for now.

    NOTE: you will not loose any multimedia, contacts, APIs ect..

    We are not allowed to mentioned any piracy here.
    Anyway, I will tell you the solution if you have done it. If you have installed Rocks too, you can actually undo the mistake from Rocks, as Cydia will not appear in Safe Mode.

    I tried this and now all I get is a bright white screen and can't do much.

    Sorry, did not mean to mention you know what....but where can I find Rocks? I do have Cydia (in safe mode?) but can't find Rocks.

    I guess you did not install Rockapps from Cydia. Next time , you should install Rocks , if you install something that messes up and go into Safe Mode, Cydia will not appear, you can go to Rocks to uninstall the problematic app that causes your Springboard to crash.

    Now you will need to do a restore again, jailbreak and unlock again.
