View Full Version : Every App goes into Tiny Window

Feb 19, 2012, 03:06 AM

I've upgraded my iPhone 4 from 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 today, and it was perfectly alright but after installing some apps and restarted my iphone, now when I run an app it goes into a tiny window, i mean it does not run on full screen,I'm attaching some pictures.





Does any body have any idea ? how to solve it?

Thank you!

You're probably going to be told to do a fresh install. "Restore as new."

it looks like your iPhone is jailbroken

Your only solution is most likely to restore it by hitting restore in itunes and i hope you backed up before you updated.

It also looks like they've got 3G(S) graphics, running on a retina device.

For the future - that most likely is because of a jailbreak tweak that is incompatible with something else you have installed. If you have SBSettings installed you can reboot the phone in safe mode and then uninstall from Cydia. Easier than restoring the phone.

I've actually seen exactly the above, on a non-jailbroken 4S. When it happened I was like, WTF? 'Cuz it happened using Apple's apps, so it's not some random thing. It's not because the phone is jailbroken (at least not necessarily). Whatever the reason in your case, it is a bug that happens on the current iOS 5.

Rebooting the phone solved the issue for me, and I've only had it happen once so far.
