    Are all your cydia apps updated? Perhaps try removing apps in reverse order to narrow it down.

    Uuuuuuuum....that's a good question. :confused:

    Try installing CrashReporter and see if it gives you any valuable data. It's supposed to log crashes.

    Honestly it's been awhile so I'm trying to guess from memory. Probably not a ton of help...lol.

    This link might help or at least lead you I the right direction.

    If you use Activator, the first thing I would do is make sure nothing strange got assigned to the home button somehow.

    Okay, i screwed up totally...
    i was removing pkg by pkg from cydia and now i have removed cydia from my JB Ipad. and still the problem is there.

    What are my chances to restore 5.0.1 and rejailbreak ? i think Cydia has my saved SHSH.
    I am sure my PC has SHSH for 4.3.3

    Please help..thankx

    You won't be able to restore, even with the SHSH blobs (A5 devices aren't vulnerable to that exploit).

    Try rejailbreaking and see if that gets you cydia back.

    The only thing that can jailbreak an A5 device on 5.0.1... Absinthe

    Did you enable SSH? And do you have ifile installed?

    If you did, you could always grab the .deb package of cydia, then if you had ifile installed use the installer feature of that?

    Where do i get cydia.deb for ipad2. it looks like i have downloaded .deb ( 706 KB only ? ) and when i try to install using iFile, its giving me an error.

    I have also tried re-jailbraking using Absinthe, but it also gives error " Already Jken Detected Stash"

    can i remove this stash ? and try again ?

    please hep/:confused:
