    It's because you have a jailbreaked device, and quite an old iOS version.

    If you update to the latest iOS, and get rid of the jailbreak, I'm sure the crashes will go away.

    That's not an answer...

    It may not have been the answer you liked, but that doesn't mean it's the answer.

    Your iPhone is running iOS 5.0.1. The curren version is 6.0.1.
    Your iPhone has Cydia on it. That means its jailbroken.

    I agree with Reason077 that unjailbreaking your device and upgrading it to the newest version of iOS will likely solve all your issues.

    I know that upgrading it will solve the issue but i'm trying to find out which program/theme/thing that is causing the crashes in the first place so that i won't use it again

    I'm not particularly great at reading/understanding crash reports, but here's the actual stack of interest:

    Thread 1 name:  Dispatch queue:
    Thread 1 Crashed:
    0   libsystem_kernel.dylib              0x339ed3b4 0x339ec000 + 5044
    1   libdispatch.dylib                   0x37e21f74 0x37e1e000 + 16244
    2   libdispatch.dylib                   0x37e21c92 0x37e1e000 + 15506
    I'd say having something starting with crash is bad and not theme specific.

    Anyways... I read an article on Android rooting a few months ago... I can't actually find it right now, but the takeaways from the article were:

    1 - If you'd like your device to work, don't root it.
    This can be expanding to iOS devices: If you'd like your iOS device to work, don't jailbreak it, and don't install beta software on it, either.

    2 - If you need to ask for help when it breaks, don't root it.

    And certainly don't ask developers. If Apple finds that a developer is aiding people in jailbreaking, they banish the developer from the app store. Further, some people jailbreak only to rip developers off. It's not everyone, but it's enough that we're generally hostile to them.

    Rooting is not for everyone (I found a handful of handy dev tools are only available on Android if you root). Jailbreaking is for essentially no one (about the only people should do it are the incredibly nerdy that can take care of their own jailbroken devices and enjoy doing it.)

    Now stop being silly, uninstall the jailbreaks and upgrade to iOS 6.0.1.

    What do you mean "when i drop NFC"?

    You have a lot of tweaks that might be messing with the same thing but you should go thru these and get rid of ones you especially dont need or use


    another option is to update to 5.1.1 (where most people are at the moment who care about jailbreaks) and rejailbreak.. but since its a 4S you would need redsn0w to RE-restore your phone and if you need an unlock you wouldnt be able to do it at all.

    I'm sorry but an iPhone without a jailbreak is useless to me.

    thank you sir.

    This forum for developers doesn't really deal with jailbroken devices. Perhaps your question is better suited for the Jailbreaks and iOS Hacks forum.
