Kernel panics when starting Google apps and dropbox

Hello everyone, I've recently came across some device "crashes". My iPad reboots as soon as I tap on the app icon. This ALWAYS happens when I tap on any Google app (chrome, youtube, maps, drive) oooor on dropbox.

Here is the latest panic.plist (2015-03-19-231102.panic.plist)

I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure this is no hardware failure. I've recently tried to "fake" the os version (changed version in a plist found in a system folder), but I eventually changed it back. Some other changes i made were 3 "essential" cydia updates, and installing (and removing them afterwards): localliapstore, iapfree, iapcrazy and iapcracker.

Hi. Sorry to hear of your troubles.

If I may ask - have you installed xCon? I, too, installed that tweak (from Github) and, while it worked to allow me to watch my TiVo, it thoroughly messed up some of my apps (e.g. Evernote keep crashing, just how you describe your Google stuff).

What other steps have you taken? Have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the apps that crash?

If you haven't installed xCon, may we have a list of the tweaks you have installed? Maybe one of them is interfering and someone will know which it might be (it might even be me who knows! :) ).


P.S. And, since you're talking about a jailbroken device, I've taken the liberty of moving your post over to the Hacking section. Thanks for your understanding.
