Anyone else experience a Springboard Crash?

I was just checking my 3G iPhone and I noticed a prompt that said that my Springboard Crashed and that it was now operating in "Safe Mode" and that I had a recent software upgrade that caused the crash and I must restart my iPhone and press OK or restart. When it started up again, there were twelve apps added to my homescreen that were normally on other pages...

My springboard crashes occasionally, usually when its being resprung. It hasn't caused me any problems, although sometimes the icons get rearranged.

I had this happen a couple times one day. A restore from backup fixed the issue.

Yeah, I've had this before. I think we've all had it at least once

This is my first crash with the Springboard for my 3G iPhone and my v1 iPhone, so that's why I was concerned. It sounds like it's a normal thing for most of you; but I was just wondering if the new Safari 4 Public Beta had anything to do with this crash?

What the new version of Safari got to do with the iPhone?

Well, apparently it's got something to do with the 3G iPhone...

After a little bit of googling I found this article:

on my iPhone 2G 2.2.1 JB... springboard would crash when i had the notifier widget installed. however a simple uninstallation fixed this.

also i had a theme installed for dialer. can't think of what it was - but it included a 'smart' dialer' feature, which made the mobilephone crash - crippling the very core of the iPhone.

for me all i had to do is uninstall both times any apps that could logically cause problems.

i.e - smart dialer = phone
notifier widget = latest springboard enhancement


just keep track of what you install so when you encounter a problem you don't have to go crazy!

i noticed this behavior for a few days last week and it appears to have been caused by the five-icon dock

That's exactly what mine did today 3X already. On top of that it rearranges all of my icons and moves the bottom row of each of the nine screens; who knows which page they'll show up on???

9 pages! damn! i have four pages and thought that was kind of a lot...anyways, my Springboard has crashed only twice in the past six or so months, but luckily the icons have never rearranged. it seems like it's normal though if the Springboard crashed that icons can get moved.

Yeah, I know that's a ton of apps, but I just decided to delete some of the ones that I don't seem to use that much or possible duplicate or similar card games, but keep the better of the two. So, now I've got several pages without a bottom row of icons.....

Exclamation Springboard Crashing

I have an iPod Touch 2nd Gen on iOS 4 and this is happening to me too. I noticed that it started happening when I installed 'LiveClock' from Cydia. This also happens when I install 'WeatherIcon' from Cydia. and the only way to get rid of 'Safe Mode' is to uninstall them. I trying re-booting and re-springing and nothing different happened. But I want 'WeatherIcon' and 'LiveClock'. Help?

Crashes can't harm your phone at all. But I would recommend finding the culprit of the constant crashes and remove it. They are annoying and it's just going to keep happening.

Hey people I have an iPod Touch (4th Gen) with iOS 5 jailbroken with redsn0w. I do not have Wi-Fi, and therefore use CyderII to download applications and then copy them over to Cydia. Recently I downloaded a few themes, and installed them, and after re-springing through winterboard, I got the message saying that my Springboard had crashed. No amounts of reboots or resprings are helping. I'm trying to delete the packages I recently added to Cydia, but the Packages tab shows a blank list. Under sources, I only have ONE source, instead of seven. Can somebody help me? I don't feel like restoring and re-jailbreak9ing.
