    I haven't installed anything new but did recently update a few cydia apps. However I have lost the ability to connect my phone to the computer. It's not working for any computer so I'm thinking it must be the phone. Also I have tried multiple cords. Tweaks I have installed include sbs settings, springtomize, cydelete, winterboard and some other common apps. Any thoughts on what may be causing this issue? Charges with the wall charger just fine.

    Are all your apps legal ?
    A common cause of this is trying to get paid apps for free

    You should reboot the computer and phone

    Whenever I have this issue it is either the USB port (try a different one) or my Firewall resets after a while and blocks the connection to my Phone. Or you can always try a reboot, although I would think that is the first thing anyone tries.

    All my apps are legal - I have tried 3 computers now whcih makes me think it's the phone. The only thing i've downloaded since sunday (the last time it worked and I was editing my theme with ifunbox) was BigU movies. I have since removed it and it still isn't working.

    ----------

    also have tried reboots of the phone and computer several times.

    Also - I determined it's not a hardware issue by putting the phone into restore mode and then the computer recognized it. Unfortunately, this may make it difficult to get my pictures off my phone or charge my phone at work w/ just the cable.

    I'm certainly not for the idea of pirating of software but comments like this are such ********.

    Of course it can happen but I doubt it's common.

    One of the quickest ways to corrupt an iOS file system so it won't reboot is by placing apps with altered files on your device
    And installing the apps on your iDevice to trick iTunes into accepting those apps as legit is a common reason iTunes does not correctly read the device.

    The overwhelming majority of the time, simply removing the offending app "fixes" the iTunes issue instantly.

    I have officially tried everything. I uninstalled every jailbreak app and tweak I have. Also wifi sync will not work on my phone as well. I think it had something to do with downloading bigU movies app as that is the only thing that had changed jailbreak wise other than updating common cydia apps. Has anyone ever encountered such an issue? it's really frustrating not being able to sync to the computer.

    Mondo - I think the app that screwed mine up was bigU movies and uninstalling it didn't help. What apps did you install prior to the last time it worked?

    Perhaps you should re-read my verbage in that post.
    Don't believe I assumed any such thing.
    Appsync is one of the primary reasons for an iTunes failure to read an iPhone.
    Just eliminating it as a possible cause.
