    What is the best way to determine what made my springboard crash?

    I'm on iOS 5.1.1

    It doesn't do it often, but when it does it's always at a bad time, I'd just like to know what's causing it...

    Thanks.

    Do you remember what the last package you installed was when you started noticing the random crashes?

    That's the thing, I don't. I've been kind of experimenting...

    That's why I need a way to determine what crashed it, I think I've tried crash reporter before and I wasn't sure how to use it...

    If you install crash reporter make sure you also install syslogd from jay freeman (don't install the syslog toggle for bossprefs).

    With both installed, after a crash go to crash reporter and find the recent crash. The time and date are in parenthesis. Find the most recent one, open it and if youre lucky it'll list the app it suspects caused the crash. Usually for me it's just a low memory crash. But when it's not low memory, it's because two apps I have installed don't play well together. Although I never have that problem anymore because I only have a handful of tweaks installed that all have very different features.

    That's the elementary way of figuring out what caused the crash. If you learn how to read a symbolicated crash report, you will have a much easier time discerning the cause of the crash.

    Did something just start crashing sb for you? I am having trouble with something, I just updated Unfold and one other tweak or something and I do t remember what it was. I'm going to uninstall unfold and see if that was it. I wish I remembered what the other update was.

    I had to uninstall unfold the other day, because it kept crashing SB whenever a notification came through on the lockscreen, not sure if that's fixed now though...

    I can't find a fix, it's crashing more often now, help? I've installed both crash reporter and syslogd, but when I check crash reporter it's just a bunch of code I don't understand, and the view syslog option is empty... Here is the crash report:

    Help please, I'd like to avoid a clean restore...

    It hasn't been long enough to be certain, but I haven't had a crash since removing Unfold. Its too bad because I love Unfold. I might have to try Unlockize I guess.

    All pointless info when you don't explain how to use it?
    According to crash reporter springboard is crashing, does that mean I remove springboard?

    If you can't reply with plain English sense dont reply at all

    Can't you just go to Settings>General>About>Diagnostics & Usage>Diagnostic & Usage Data and find the appropriate crash log?

    Is there something that CrashReporter does that the built in iOS tool does not?

    I'm just curious as CrashReporter looks exactly the same as the built in tool.

    It's crashing at Thread 22. Specifically com.apple.root.low-priority.

    The first thing listed after that is libsystem_kernel.dylib. Can't really find much on that. But you are saying it crashes whenever a notification comes through on the lockscreen. What happens if you try uninstalling BiteSMS?

    I actually think the OP fixed/gave up months ago since he never came back.

    It's not his crashlog.

    Pay more attention!
