    Every time I go to delete an app, the springboard crashes into safe mode, however. The app does delete after I respring out of safe mode. Does anyone have something similar happen? Is it a known issue with any tweaks? I was about to start the debugging process, by eliminating tweaks one by one, but I thought I'd see if someone knew.

    Thanks!

    IF you are using CyDelete. get rid of it, it is the cause.

    The two that catch my eye would be FullForce and Applocker..... the rest dont require anything with installing/uninstalling, so i cant see how that would affect anything. Thats not a very long list so its hard to tell haha.... might have to do the good old debugging lol

    Mine too, I've noticed it just happened when trying to delete Chrome from my phone while plugged into my computer.

    I'm using a GSM iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1. All my Cydia tweaks and packages are updated too.

    In comparison with iFiend I have

    ActiveDock
    iFile
    Zephyr

    I've had this SAME problem since Day 1 and I do not have "ActiveDock."

    The only app I have in common is iFile.

    I'm beginning to think it might be a bug in the Evasi0n JB - which I have had doubts about since it was released.

    Absinthe JB was so much smoother and better - but that's for another topic.

    EDIT: I have also recently done a full restore, set up as new, re-JB and I still have this persistent issue, which as the OP mentioned.....happens when you delete a package and a restart/reload of springboard is required. In some cases I've had it go to a 'safe mode' loop 7-8 times before it stops.

    Neither do i use nor do i know every tweak mentioned above, but as soon as i have an issue like that i'm using sbsettings to disable the Mobilesubstrate Addons one by one and so i'm able to easily find the culprit......

    This man speaks the truth, at least as far as my problem is concerned.

    Very odd thing to happen since the tweak seemingly shouldn't have anything to do with it. If it were Springtomize 2, for example, I'd be less surprised :p

    Good luck to others trying to fix their issue.
