    It seems that ever since I've installed IntelliScreenX, my phone is constantly going into Safe Mode. It recovers fine and fast, but it is annoying.

    I bought IntelliScreenX from Cydia (it's not a cracked version or anything) and it does seem to make the phone somewhat more unstable.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Yes, I had that happen earlier... I found that IntelliscreenX wasn't quite what I was looking for, anyway, so I'm trying LockInfo again.

    I have a similar problem except mine doesn't go into safe mode, instead it just freezes....or lags by 10-15 seconds. You swipe to unlock and 10 seconds later in unlocks. Then you press an icon and nothing happens for a further 10 seconds. Only way to recover is a reset...but right now that seems to be looping 3 or 4 times before the phone will start.

    I'm thinking of a complete restore and then starting again to try to identify the fault.

    I saw a post that stated that activator was causing them issues so they removed it. I did this and I think I saw an improvement but it also removed ncdate which I need to get a clock on my lock screen, so had to install it again

    Restoring didn't do anything for me. Every so often when I wake my phone with the ISX shade pulled down over the lock screen, it just completely freezes the phone. After a minute or two, it finally resprings. I restored yesterday and only downloaded a handful of things from Cydia, and Activator was not among them. And it's right back to doing the same thing.

    Not sure if this happens with others (I'm using the trial version), when I select the Facebook header; poof, reboot to safe mode. Every time. I posted a tweet to intelliborn...
    Not sure I am going to cough up $10 for IntelliscreenX just yet. And LockInfo isn't any better. It was causing my screen to lockup forcing a reboot.

    I think that was me that mentioned that. I was having the exact issue with Activator and NCDate so I removed them. My solution to getting date and time back on the lockscreen was to use SimpleDate and Lockscreen Clock Hide which you can set to display the clock in the status bar just like it is in springboard.

    I have had IntelliScreenX cause my phone to enter safemode at least 4 times. Not sure what the cause is, maybe an update soon?

    Beyond that, and not to overthrow your thread, but I have a few questions about IntelliScreenX.

    Is there a way for it to override default notifications and turn off normal notifications on the lock screen? (I only want them to appear in the notification center swipe down, not on the lockscreen itself without turning them all off individually).

    Also, is there a way to have it be compatible with BlurredNotificationCenter? As it stands now, if I have blurred installed it works fine when the phone is unlocked, but having NC showing on the lockscreen looks terrible and also causes a glitch with the swipe to unlock.

    Think I'm having the same issue. I have a lot of tweaks installed but the "safe mode" issue went away when I uninstalled Intelliscreen. Came back once I reinstalled it

    ISX will throw my iPhone 5 on iOS 6 into safe mode occasionally. Not too often. I can deal with it.

    I've had IntelliScreenX also throw my JB iPhone 5 into Safe Mode a few times when going into part of its settings. However, once all my settings were in place, I didn't have much errors. I'm sure the developers are working hard on fixing the bugs as the JB is so new.

    I'm happy w/ mine so far and I'm looking forward to the update!

    Intelliscreenx Bug

    Intelliscreenx is one of my favorite tweaks however, it sent my iphone 5 into a continuous safe mode that I couldn't get out of. When I went into cydia to uninstall it, all of my installed packages weren't checked as installed. I'm pretty sure it was caused by intelliscreenx because right before this I pulled it down on the home screen and it was blank! I also had bitesms, which never gave me any trouble, and unfold installed. The more I read I see intelliscreenx seems not to be compatible with quite a few tweaks! I ended up getting apple to swap out my phone as I ended up having to restore and upgrade to 6.1.3 to stop the boot loop that occurred after being stuck in safe mode! Luckily the replacement came with 6.1.2! I want my intelliscreenx back, but am afraid to install it! #
