    Have you tried going back to Cydia and reinstalling iFile? Once you uninstalled it/rebooted the iPad, maybe try again with the Cydia install? Did you use Cydia to UNinstall iFile? Sometimes, if you take it off yourself, without going through Cydia, you cause more problems for yourself. Hopefully, using Cydia to put it back on may re-load it right.

    Honestly, that's all I can think of. And, I think it is iFile that's messing you up. So, unfortunately, unless you can get iFile to "behave," I'm afraid you are facing a restore.

    Sorry, but I'm all out of options.

    Hey Marilyn,

    I figured it out. It wasn't iFile or USB toggle switch, it was Bigify+. I had had a safe mode problem with the Bigify+ package once before too.

    For reference I went into SBSettings and went to Mobile Substrate Add-Ons and disabled everything then resprung. This took my iPad out of safe mode. Then I just had to isolate which package was causing the problem. So I figured out it was Bigify+ and removed it in Cydia. Now everything is back to normal.

    It might just be the package itself or might be because I use Shrink too and they conflict with each other, but either way there is an issue there that I have experienced twice now. I wasn't using it for anything permanent anyway, so it's ok I had to remove it.

    But no, I removed iFile in Cydia when I tried that. I didn't do it myself. I've reinstalled it since then, and like I said everything is back to working order.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    Whew! Glad you got it fixed.

    And yeah, I wouldn't run two tweaks together that do essentially the same thing (Shrink and Bigafy). Good pick on Shrink - that's one of my faves.

    And, thanks for highlighting the technique of disabling the Mobile Substrate items to figure out what was wrong. Not only is that a reminder to me for any other trouble-shooting problem (to ensure I recommend that), but it also may help someone else coming along with a Safe Mode problem. So, appreciate it.

    Again, yay!

    Hey man that's very good news that you solved it! Good info!

    And that's even more exciting to see a USB Hub expansion for memory especially the games you talked about!

    Yeah it's handier than having to uninstall and reinstall all of your packages, when you can just disable them with like effect.

    Yeah the advantages I see in it are mainly two fold:

    1) You can connect multiple devices for transfer between them and your iPad.

    2) With an AC adapter you can mount drives that would normally be unmountable because of power limitations.
