Jailbroke the other day.
Spent most of today getting a few apps, getting everything set up correctly...etc. Perfect.
At 1 am disaster strikes. I reboot, and my icon spacing looks all weird, i can't run the settings app ( just get a black screen with a few colored pixels in the corner..) can't connect to wifi, some apps won't run and won't connect.
Freaked out for a sec. Did a little research, and found a link that i can't post here. because i don't have enough posts. argghh. google "jailbreak qa random weirdness at boot, normal after respring" and you can see what i'm experiencing...
Looked just like this. Did what the person said, swiped my sbsettings across the top, tapped "respring" and everything returned to normal.
Last thing I really did was added the xsellize repository, but I never got it working properly. Am on 5.1.1. and read some problems about that not working, so i went into cydia/sources and deleted that repos.
So at this point, I have two questions.
Main question 1: How do I save the apps i downloaded? saw youtube vid that says to connect ipad, go to applications, then just drag onto desktop. will this give me the ipa files? I read they were in a /tmp directory somewhere. I downloaded ifiles but somehow cannot get to the root directory. ( am i supposed to be able to?)
question 2, is a factory restore and possible re-jailbreak the only way to correct this? or should I start scrapping programs? I did download winterboard and bytafont....where would one start in terms of troubleshooting this specific problem? Is there a known fix for this?
I really like the device so far, but really an apple noob, so please be patient....very grateful for your help
Sorry my first post is a problem. I really like the tablet. Super cool. And very hard to put down....
