    What do you mean by "Safe Mode"?

    Are you talking about the MobileSubstrate Safe Mode? Just reboot your phone.

    Yup I reckon they are. Only ever had that happen to me when I was jailbroken, is the main reason I went back to official firmware.

    So something is causing it to go into safe mode, maybe software recently installed? Do you think you both may have done something at the same time, like synced them?

    yeah it is weird that both phones are doing it... Their has to be something you installed... it could be something as small as a toggle in sbsettings or a theme..

    I also had this problem.. my phone would boot into safe mode but a simple respring would fix the problem... Try sliding to unlock. then click the time at the top of the home screen. Then click respring.. See if that works..

    If that doesnt work. I'm afraid you will have to do a restore.. Make sure both of your restore keys are backed up in cydia because you can not do a restore to 3.1.2 anymore..the only way you can do this is if you backup the keys in cydia...

    I havent dL'd anything from Cydia in a while and my phone was stuck unlocking to read a SMS message so i held down Home and Power and it took me to the safe mode with the blk and white picture of a sad iphone. and now i cant get it out of the safe mode. Any ideas? Is there a way to turn back time on a iphone?

    And it says " MobileSubstrate /did not/ cause this problem


    Also i cant get into my SB settings because when i touch the top of the bar the error message comes up.

    So then you should probably uninstall some stuff in cydia, like SBsettings.

    MobileSubstrate did not cause the problem, no, one of the apps that relies on MobileSubstrate did. Do the following:

    1) Go to Cydia>Manage>Packages>Mobile Substrate>Modify>Remove.

    2) Note all of the packages which will be removed so that you can reinstall them at a later date.

    3) Click confirm to uninstall.

    This will uninstall Mobile Substrate and all packages that depend on it.

    When done, restart your phone (hold power for 5 seconds, slide to power off, wait 10 seconds, restart). This should have fixed your problem.

    You can then re-install any of the packages you noted in step 2 that you still want, one at a time. You should probably restart between each package you install. If at any point you get the Safe Mode message, the last package you installed is probably the culprit.

    OMG thank you!

    I was having this same problem today and have been uninstalling all of my mobilesubstrate apps. I was about to do a complete re-image of my phone until I did one more quick search and read what the poster above had put and it worked. That stupid app ANYRING was the root of my problem as well. It had expired the trial and was causing my phone to do this. Very poor development if you ask me as this is not the first version either and this is something that is VERY noticeable if it is happening to more than one person. Sorry for the long post I just needed to rant about this horrible app that caused this as well as thank the posters and this site for the help ;)

    Just to let everyone know I also had the exact same problem, AnyRing expired, safe mode kicked in, removed it, all is well. Awful programming.

    I almost wonder if they did that on purpose. Like to make sure you but it or something. Although I don't really see how that could help them.
