    it seems that it takes forever for my phone to come back on after a reboot or respring. a full reboot takes about 4 minutes or so?

    What do you mean by full reboot? If you mean holding down the power button and home button until the device reboots, it's normal.

    Holding down the power button and home button to restart takes quite a long time.

    OK, maybe not 4 minutes, but it takes a while.

    why do you think it is taking so long? i do have a lot of cydia apps. it stays at just the apple for about 1 1/2 min then the apple with the spiral thinker for another 1 1/2 minutes or so. it seems forever, or like its frozen.

    and yes im talking about a hold home and power button

    Depends on what iPhone. My 2G seems like 4-5 min vs ~1 min on IP4.

    If you are seeing the spiral as part of the boot up process that would indicate to me that something is crashing causing mobile substrate to re-spring (so in effect you are booting then respringing again).

    I've seen this happen once or twice (I have 60 mobile substrate extensions and on the whole am fairly stable). You certainly should not be getting it every boot. The only way to find out is to disable some substrate extensions using SBSettings. I would suggest disabling them all then turn on one by one until you come across the problem again. It will take a whilst but it really is the only way to track down troublesome combinations...

    Hope that helps

    sbsettings > more > (scroll down) Mobile Substrate Addons > and turn your addons off one by one, or trun them all off and re-enable them one by one...
    Since you are having problems with booting, you are going to have to reboot to test each permutation out... That is going to take a long time!!!

    Also, a word of warning. If you decide you are going to remove an app through cydia you should make sure you have re-enabled it BEFORE you try and remove it. Otherwise it wont get rid of it properly and you will get yourself in a state. Just use the above approach to identify what apps might be causing your issue. Then re-enable everything. THEN remove the troublesome program from Cydia.

    Hope that helps.

    so im not sure what i did, but it now takes about a minute or so to come back after a full reboot, with the holding power and home button. woohoo!!! i was tired of the feeling that my phone was stuck or needing to restore. only because it happened to me a couple weeks ago.
