    After jailbreaking my 3GS with os4
    and after installing a few apps with cydia
    my phone is stuck in safe mode. When I try to exit safe mode it just hangs.
    I tried to unistall these apps but that dint help .
    A restore did nothing also.
    If I try to start in DUI mode apple wants to upgrade to 4.1.
    Any suggestions if what to try next?

    One of the apps that you installed via Cydia is causing it. Uninstall one by one to find the culprit.

    same thing happened to me. I just removed the last thing that I downloaded and it was fine after that.

    I updated MobileSaturate, biteSMS, Cyntact, and UKtoolKit and now I can't get my phone out of safe mode.

    Could be some of your themes and Winterboard causing the issues. Uninstall Winterboard and see.

    Get rid of Cyntact.

    It was causing me to crash too. Saurik put out some update that is making it crash over and over again.

    Good thing it was the first one I uninstalled.

    Haha I wish there was a way to go back to the previous version! It was working fine before this update went and ruined it. And with how busy Saurik is, I don't know when he's going to be able to fix his mistake. Oh well.

    Hmm, Saurik *MIGHT* have updated it, although I'm not sure. I was looking at his twitter and a lot of people are having the same problem.

    One person said they just went back in and re-installed Cyntact and it worked, so I just tried it myself. Sure enough, its working now! :p

    uninstall cydia apps in safe mode?

    My iphone4 is stuck in safe mode. I just jailbroke it and installed Sbsettings,Insomnia,BIteSMS,eWiFi-The simple stuff I've always had in my previous phones. The Winterboard somehow got installed with one of the apps.I've NEVER had Cyntact. Anyways how can I uninstall any of them if the phone is in safe mode? All my apps in Cydia are not showing due to the safe mode. Any help would be appreciated.

    You went into DUI mode?! You really shouldn't drink and drive... Did you get pulled over? Did you lose your license?

    Open Cydia > Manage > Packages > select the stuff you want to uninstall > Modify > Remove.
