    HI, I'm jailbroken with iOS 5/redsnow/ activator 1.6.0 etc

    I use the slide in gesture 'from screen bottom' to open the multitasking bar when in applications and on first page of springboard but sometimes the 'from screen bottom' stops working completely after a while. All the other gestures I have still work fine.

    Has anyone come across this?

    Thanks!

    Funny that you mentioned this - because I couldn't get it to work properly...

    I was able to get it to 'work' but sliding my thumb up from the bottom a dozen times, and eventually, it worked - but not the way I wanted...

    I got Zephyr from Cydia - Which APP does the trick, flawlessly... works great. I turned off the Left/Right slide to switch Apps from anywhere on the screen. It works GREAT as well - but sometimes, I'd swipe in an App left or right, (to actually apply input to the App) and it would switch to the next running app, ...

    Either way - It's a great App. It does what your asking. :)

    I'm experiencing the same thing. A respring would fix it but kind of annoying.

    I've also experienced this as well. 5.0.1 jb with pwnage. Resprings work but not permanently. Tried reinstalling MS for the second time, waiting to see how long it will hold up...

    the new one removed a lot of gestures from the status bar which i liked a lot.

    I have a same problem as well.. Respring or reboot will solve this, tried to find another way but got nothing. :( Else cannot exit when in apps.

    Same problem here...

    I'm using the "double tap on status bar" instead, and it's working fine. But the "slide from bottom" would be more natural and intuitive :/

    BTW, Zephyr does what Activator already does... I don't even know why it exists...

    Try adding Ryan Petrich's (Activator dev) repo and downloading the 1.6.1 beta. I'm still testing it but, so far, the slide in gesture bug appears to be addressed.

    Oh awesome. This seems to be working very good. Thanks again for the tip. Much smoother, and responsive.

    Mine wasn't working either even with the latest beta, then I read the release notes and it says there's a conflict with lockinfo -- if you disable notification center in lockinfo then slide in gestures won't work. So I reenabled it and now it works! Give it a try.

    Every other time I activate the music app via activator (at least once in three times, it's rather predictable) it resprings itself into Safe Mode. I'll try adding the beta and seeing if that works.

    It's been buggy for me lately too, there have been about a dozen updates in the past couple weeks it seems, nothing in the changelog though so I don't know what's going on..
