    I have iPod touch 4G running iOS 6.1.5 and since yesterday I have one problem. When I reboot my iPod it stucks in a reboot loop. I can fix reboot loop with holding volume-up button, iPod boots successfully but all apps on springboard are out of folders. Cydia works, but SbSettings and Activator does not work. It looks like half-jailbroken iDevice. Can you give me an advice what to do?

    Thank you.

    When powering up with holding the volume up button your device goes into a no-substrate mode. Besides others, in this mode most tweaks will not work and icon layout is reset.
    Use this mode to go to Cydia and delete the most recently installed/updated tweak(s) to get rid of the culprit sending your device in boot loop.
    Afterwards turn-off your device and turn-on again. If the troubling tweak has been deleted your device will power up to normal mode with your tweaks appearing again as well as the icon layout.

    Thank you for your answer but I don´t know which tweak can cause this. I have not installed any tweak recently.

    You have to go through your tweaks and troubleshoot which one is the cause.

    The tweak I have called wallcycler or something like that causes my phone to be stuck at a reboot loop if my phone ever turns off. Just enter safety mode by holding the volume up button and go uninstall whatever tweak is causing your phone to act up.
