So I've been jailbroken for about two weeks now and everything went smooth the first week. Since then when I browse and look at apps they randomly force close from time to time. Always sends me back to the home screen. Tapatalk , Facebook, messaging, bridge, bytafont2 etc... Are all doing this. What I want to know is what is the best way to go about fixing this problem without having to do an entire re-jailbreak? Can I make a back up with iTunes then uninstall all my apps and tweaks and Cydia ,then reinstall everything and restore my backup? Or do I need to start from scratch with evasi0n . I would really like to know the culprit of the problem but I am new to jailbreak not really sure how to do so , so any help would be great thanks.

Try reinstalling Cydia substrate and substrate safe mode together; hopefully that should work. It worked for me the last time this happened to me.

Tried it but I'm still getting random crashes on springboard. I think I am going to uninstall MS then reinstall each tweak one by one. Hope this fixes it and I don't have to re-jailbreak.

What phone and os are you on, that would help to narrow it down...Assuming you dont have cracked apps, they tend to do these things randomly, it can be bytafont, It gave me these problems along with other people I stumbled upon in other forums.

iPhone 5 and I'm on iOS 7.0.4 . What I did was re-jailbreak. Yes it was a bit annoying but since I only have a few tweaks installed And I'm running fine. No bytafont. But I did find flip control center is way better than cccontrols. Wish I knew what the culprit was...

I don't know if I understood, so it was bytafont? because bytafont and bigify+ both caused me these almost identical problems. Its not fair I want fonts and smaller icons TODAY. Guess we gota see what updates do.

I honestly dont know what it was. I have not reinstalled all the tweaks that I had. I know I did not install bytafont this time and No crashes since.

definitely not bytafont 2 which i thought was causing the issue a week ago.
i restored my iPhone 5 and jailbroke again without bytafont 2.
facebook just started crashing again after working fine since.
things go back to normal and i can also open the photos app after a reboot but i know it's going to come back. no clue what is causing this.

*update*
i uninstalled ncobey yesterdeay and the random crashes seemed to have gone away.
anyone else running this tweak with success?
