    Okay this is supposedly against the rules of jailbreaking. I went and selected "reset all settings" and the problem with that is that my phone started going into safe mode and crashed all the time. I read on message boards that this is pretty common, and you aren't supposed to "rest all settings". In fact there is even a tweak in Cydia that removes those options from your settings menu.

    Anyways I freaked out and started deleting cydia tweaks one by one and sure enough once I got rid of iBlacklist it never crashed again. I then reinstalled iBlacklist and it started crashing all the time. I then noticed something interesting. I wondered if iBlacklist might be conflicting with an app so I went and noticed that when I reset my settings my PhoneGVExtension was no longer registered. I went and reregistered it and then reinstalled iBlacklist and iBlacklist now doesn't crash at all anymore.

    I spent the last several hours now reinstalling tweaks, and my phone hasn't had one crash.

    Also a week ago my iPad which is also jailbroken, the auto-lock screen was never coming up which was causing my battery to drain so I did a reset all settings which completely fixed that problem.

    So supposedly "rest all settings" will screw up your phone but it totally fixed my phone.

    It's nice to ensure that my phone is still jailbroken.

    you got lucky glad you did I would never advice someone to do this. the normal reaction is it throw a jb device into a loop. it''s a pain to fix. but your happy now good and all I think you took the difficult route but hey your happy!
