    OK heres the details:

    - Running iOS 6.1 on iPhone 4S
    - Originally updated to 6.1 using OTA (i know this is not good)
    - Jailbroke phone using original Evasi0n App (version 1) from their Website on Launch Day.
    - Updated the Jailbreak as and when they were released in Cydia (Weather App Fix / Disable OTA Notification)
    - Jailbreak Tweaks Running: Auxo, DismissMyKeyboard, Fake Operator, Giffy, Maps Opener, Swipe Selection.

    Now with the Two problems I am getting:

    Missing Cydia Repos:
    After updating a Jailbreak Package in Cydia the ModMyi.com Disappeared, I had to add it myself by going to "More Package Sources" in Cydia and adding it again.

    Apps Force Closing:
    This is a strange problem, my phone would be working fine for a while but then all of a sudden the app I try and run just force closes on me, its not any particular apps it seems to be a different one each time. It can be a system app or one I have downloaded from the app store. The only way to fix it is restarting my device.

    These problems seemed to happen straight after the Jailbreak, even before installing any tweaks.

    So my questions are:

    1) Has anyone else experienced any of these problems?

    2) I am guessing the best way to proceed is a Restore using iTunes?

    1) No

    2) I would first try uninstalling Cydia packages in reverse chronological order of installation, testing after each to see which package is causing the problem.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I have un-installed all the tweaks I have installed and rebooted the phone.

    Will leave it a few days to see if I still experience a problem, if not I will start installing the tweaks one by one.

    That will work, too. Make sure you give it time between each one. Things don't always show up right away.

    OK I am guessing the problem is with the Jailbreak.

    I just powered down the device and switched it back on, it got as far as the Apple Logo then got stuck in a boot loop.

    I had to hold the Power and Home button to restart the phone before it would boot up correctly again.

    I have had problems with apps force closing. In particular I've noticed that it is the applications that access the maps/location features. Here is a list of apps that I am currently experiencing issues with force closing:

    Find My iPhone
    Gas Buddy
    TheWeather Channel (When map is selected)
    NOAA Hi-Def Radar
    Facebook (When attempting location services)
    Reminders (When attempting to switch between accounts)

    I know Livelyicons was causing force quit. If you have that installed uninstall until updated!

    Most likely this is due to the Auxo memory leak, which the developers are working on to fix in a near release. Uninstall the tweak for now, and see if that helps.

    My problem is not only are the apps sometimes force closing, but when I receive a text or a phone call it automatically goes into safe mode and I don't know why it does that. Anyone help?
