    Everything was working fine on my iPhone 5 (7.0.4) until this morning when I opened Cydia, updated Cydia Substrate and one other Cydia app that had an update, then I installed Adblock. After doing that all 3rd party apps (Accuweather, Spotify, Twitter, etc) and some Apple apps (Calculator, Safari, Mail) crash immediately upon opening them. Some Apple apps do work (Phone, Messages, Camera, Music.) Apps installed via Cydia some to open.

    I have since removed Adblock, restarted springboard, and restarted the phone, but the problem still exists. Any suggestions?

    Uninstall Cydia Substrate, it'll also remove whichever tweak is causing the issue. Then install only Cydia Substrate. Whatever tweak it took down with it was your cause. Worked just that easily on both my devices. For me it was the animation speed up tweak!

    I spoke too soon. That resolved all of my problems except for the Mail app, which still crashes. Any reason why mail would crash?

    Try this

    navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches

    delete this 2 files

    com.apple.LaunchServices-054.csstore

    com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

    reboot and you should be all good.

    I tried this! It did not work! You have to uninstall AppCake and the AppSync like in the other thread.

    This is not working for me.

    This also did not work.

    Tried resetting all settings, didn't fix.

    Tried to erase all content and settings but all I got was the spinning wheel thing (respring icon?) and a soft reset brought the phone back to home screen.

    I can't do a full restore from iTunes - I don't have the .ipsw for 7.0.4, only 7.0. I'm on satellite internet and throttled so I can't just download it.

    I was in the same boat. Pictures app, dropbox and Facebook all crashed immediately. I tried the methods mentioned above but to no avail, finally I had to restore and will try again :(.

    iPhone 5 iOS 7.0.4

    Weirdly enough I have had this happen to me as well. Completely random, like it just BAM decided to stop working like it should. For me though it was only Safari that would quit as soon as you opened it. So I uninstalled Appcake, Vshare, then Appsync. Then i went in and deleted the two files suggest in the /var/mobile/Library/Caches folder and rebooted. This fixed my problem completely. Although now I have an Evasion7 icon on my springboard lol.

    Easy way to not get this type of issues:
    Stop pirating apps :eek:

    I have zero problem with doing so living in the day and age we are living in. Our government (usa) is one of, if not THE most corrupt goverrnment in the world. Our presidents shame themselves, our citizens murder each other in schools, churches, at concerts, and on the street. Am I contributing to this by downloading an app that is considered "pirated"? Am I causing chaos and burning my bra? No. What I'm doing, in the privacy of my own home no less, is not even a tiny grain of sand compared to what we have surrounding us. So I think I'll keep on doing my thing. :D

    Ehh so what; no matter what you think is right or wrong. Pirating apps tends to cause trouble to your fw and issues w your other apps. Things were smoother in the ios3-4 days for piracy. You don't want those issues then don't pirate. There is nothing else. Now go nag someone else about your bras and your "freedom" and put your tin foil hat back down and actually read before replying.
