    The developer has been updating that tweak for the last couple days and if u have stacks installed it crashes immediately, I tried finding the file location and I had no luck either.

    I found the location on another forum

    The SBRotator file is located in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/

    Delete the two SBRotator files (dylib mainly). Respring, and SBRotator is gone. To complete remove it, go to Cydia and remove it.

    This fixed my problem

    The intent was to remove them via Cydia. Whatever works.

    Yeah, unless the constant restringing didn't allow him to. In case the OP doesn't know, you go to Cydia>Manage>Packages to delete whatever package you want. You can also search and it'll show you by a check that you have something.

    I couldn't get into my phone, it was respringing at the lock screen. The respring was constant to where i couldn't even put my passcode in, i couldn't even get 1 number of my passcode in.

    Its always a good thing to leave SSH on.

    For future reference, if you can SSH into your phone you can uninstall a package from a terminal. For SBRotator, the command would be:

    Code:
    dpkg -r net.limneos.sbrotator

    Exactly...If you are in the constant respring loop, there is a very likely chance that you have internet connectivity and can ssh into the phone. I had two when I was having issues with the updated SBSettings and Activator a while back.

    Yes, but it would be better to use dpkg to remove it properly.

    iphone keeps respringing

    Hey, I got the same issue, my iPod Touch (not iphone) keeps restarting >.<
    I tried to hard-restart about 50 times XD but nothing happened..
    It starts to boot, switches over to my boot logo, keeps on there with a little
    circling thing (a loading thing) and then flashes and repeats the whole thing...:(

    With deleting the dylib things, I can delete those things for activator too?
    There was one dylib and one plist.. (I deleted those files but still no startup)

    Please help me, I'm getting mad xD :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Did you resolve the issue

    I faced it many times and had to restore my iphone dozen times.

    I finally figured the ones to delete

    in the same path mentioned by TSX

    /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/


    delete the dylib and the other one for these 2 annoying cydia apps

    Bug Fix: Duplicate Icons
    Bug Fix: Stuck Pages

    If your iphone is not recognized by itunes or any iphone browser, restore it, jailbreak it

    and once you install cydia apps and these 2 are installed, don't respring or reboot, just exit cydia

    connect your iphone to any iphone browser and do as mentioned.

    good luck.

    Sorry for posting this reply after 3 months of last person's thread

    but figured somebody might need this help

    By the way, i also deleted the ones for springtomize2 and callbar!!

    I was able to get it to boot in safe mode then go to cydia and uninstall my most recent installation. Thank heaven. Now my first order of business to get PKG Backup and SSH.

    Thanks very much for the tip

    Hi... Ive also got the same problem. My jailbroken 4S on 5.0.1. keeps re-springing and it doesnt even give me enough time to enter my passcode. I can get the phone into recovery mode, but thats its.. then iTunes asks me to restore & update which I dont want do as I'll lose pictures etc etc.

    Is there a way I can get the 4S to reboot in Safe-mode so that I can remove the app thats caused the respringing? Ive tried Recboot, but to no avail and Funbox doesnt show a connected device. :(

    Any help would be appreciated...

    nice thread

    i also ran into that dreadful reboot issue ...

    i bought photoalbums+ and it worked for some time then one time after i shut off and turned on phone it went right into that constant reboot cycle. I was unable to SSH into device ... not enough time to get in there and delete files ... would just reboot again. I wish there was a way to force the phone into safe mode once the phone starts to reboot into a cycle.

    I was able to place phone in DFU mode which recovered my phone after a restore but i lost all info on phone ... which i was upset about.

    I had the same problem and I have a passcode on my phone. Here's what I did-Hold down the power button and the home key at the same time and that should solve the issue. The phone reboots and that cleared up the problem for me. Good Luck!

    How?

    How did you get it to go into safe mode without SSH? I'm having the same problem with a 32gb 4th gen ipod touch. is sbrotator connected to this? I just installed it...

    ----------

    Did you find a way to do it?
