    For the last week or so, I've been having a lot of "springboard crashes".
    The screen goes black, then comes back with the icons all moved around and a warning screen comes up saying something about springboard having crashed and now is running in safe mode. This has been happening several times a day.

    Now, for the last two days, most of my apps have been crashing. They close in the middle of using them. I had to log onto the forums on my laptop because I couldn't get thru typing this message on my iPad without the IPF app crashing.

    I've tried deleting the last couple of cydia apps I installed, but I have no idea if it is just one tweak thats doing it, or all of them or what.

    Do I need to reload everything on my iPad to do fix this? If so, can someone point me towards proper instructions. I'm wondering if I'll have to go thru and reinstall all my cydia tweaks again etc....

    Breathe. You can't really brick an iPad. But I can't help you since you are dealing with JB.

    Someone will pop in soon! Hang in there!

    It's ok, I'm not in full panic mode yet! Lol

    I know there will be a way to fix it. Our awesome ipf crew will shortly sweep in to save the day, I'm sure!

    You can always connect your iPad to iTunes and hit Restore. It will restore to the unjailbroken state, so all Cydia apps and settings will be deleted.

    Yeah full restore may mend the iPad but it will no longer be jail broken, I'm sure someone who knows about jb will help you.

    I might have stumbled on the solution to my app crashing problems on my own. I decided to start uninstalling my cydia apps and tweaks, to see if I might catch the trouble maker. I found that I had installed a tweak to add spell checking to text fields as you are typing, and I had forgotten about it since then. I realized that most if not all of my app crashes were happening as I was typing. I have deleted it, and now (fingers crossed), it seems to be fixed. I just finished a long blog posting, and have now typed this entire message in my iPad, and no crashes. If, after a day or so, the problem doesn't return, I will call this problem solved.

    Good to hear that you found the source of the problem.

    What was the app called & is it from a trusted source?

    Huh.

    Weird thing is, I have Inspell installed and it runs fine. In fact, it's one of my favorite Cydia things because it doesn't auto-correct ... it just underlines a misspelled word for you to select and change should you wish. It works even in Safari...

    I'm not doubting that Inspell was your problem, mind you, cause I know not all Cydia stuff plays well with other stuff.

    I'm just wondering what was/is different about your set-up...

    I think I had same issue with that same app and got rid of it immediately..lmao
    Deleting last installed Cydia tweaks usually resolves any new issues found.

    Sent from my Jailbroken IPad on 4.2.1 ;-)
