    Ok so my phone keeps going into safe mode randomly, as in when I hang up from a call, or a bitesms text comes up and i close out of it. I can just hard restart my phone and it will be back to jail broken. It happens about every 2-3 days. I'm wondering what I have that could be causing this? This is what I have installed in cydia...

    Activator
    Airplane SBSettings
    Alarm HD
    Anthracite HD SBSettings
    App stat
    App sync for 4.0+
    apt 0.7 HTTPS method
    Barrel
    Better white icon set
    Big boss icon set
    Bigify
    Bitesms
    Black keyboard
    Black signal bars reverse
    Celest HD
    Cydelete
    Cydia installer
    Cydia translations
    Cyntact
    Deadmau5 slider theme ( I changed around some stuff in this with iFile so that the lock slider would say something different)
    Facebreak
    Fast copy
    Five-column springboard
    Gridlock
    Hackulous resources
    IFile
    Infinidock
    Infinifolders
    Installous 4
    ISHSHit
    MakeItMine
    Mobile substrate
    Multiconmover
    MxTube
    Mystrings
    Repo setup files
    SBSettings
    Sbssettings toggles
    Serious SBSettings HD
    Source GUI
    True HD
    TvDown screenshot
    Winterboard
    3D board


    Ok and under winter board the only things I have checked are...

    Better white icon labels
    Activate Mystrings
    Celeste HD
    Deadmau5 theme
    Alarm HD
    Black signal Bars reversed
    Black navigation bars

    So what can I delete, or what should I delete, are any of these things downloaded messing each other up? causing some kind of problem to cause my phone to go into safe mode often? Any help is greatly appreciated. I was late to work one day because my phone went into safe mode when I was sleeping and it deleted my alarm! Thank you.

    scary, but...happening here too. hard to pinpoint what it is...
    didn't happen to me in 4.2.1, but in 4.3.2... often.

    i thought maybe springtomize (which i use for so many things), but...
    you don't have that.

    i also use (in common with your list):
    activator
    bitesms
    sbsettings
    barrel
    3D board...

    am gonna try disabling, say...3dboard, then barrel, and will report back...

    anyone else?

    Cydia did some updates today.

    Have no idea what they were.

    Now, after unlocking my iPhone, it crashes.

    Plus, when I install/uninstall programs, I get a red text error.

    Tried removing programs from Cydia but nothing helped.

    Tomorrow I am going to make my first attempt at SSH'ing
    into my iPhone and reinstalling Cydia.

    Everyonce in a while when using BiteSMS quick reply, it will crash into the weird IT SAFE MODE.

    I only have these installed on 4.3.3

    BiteSMS
    LockInfo
    SBSettings
    CyDelete
    TetherMe

    I stopped using Graviboard because it made it crash into safe mode literally every time I used it, I'm on 4.3.3. I stopped using 3D board because to me it seems fairly flawed, such as when I'm laying in bed. I find it almost annoying. I am going to just delete it, even though I just paid for it. Maybe it is barrel? I really like barrel though :(...

    Yeah it does, upsetting considering it was $10, I hope it isn't bitesms, or barrel. Those two I enjoy a lot.

    Please let me know results with barrel!!!

    You guys do know that it is supposed to scroll EXIT SAFE MODE right? For some reason it doesnt scroll in 4.3.3, but don't think it actually says IT SAFE MODE.

    My experience is that it's caused by BiteSMS. A new beta in in process, hopefully an update will come soon.

    I have BiteSMS on 4.3.2 and experience zero issues with restarting in safe mode (aside from other crap I install/delete frequently)

    My money is on either Barrel or 3D Board

    am giving 3dboard a few days...will report back.
    if not that, will check barrel next.

    sure it's easy to exit safe mode, but (for me at least), i have to reset my icon positions TWICE in springtomize (so 2 more resprings) AFTER respringing from safe mode... :(

    I've had the same experience with BiteSMS as well. I'll use quick reply and then it looks like it's respringing and it says IT Safe Mode.

    I only have BiteSMS, MyWi, and SBS Settings

    I'm having the same issue. Additionally biteSMS keeps re-notifying me of old texts, I can't tell if this is a biteSMS issue or a SMS GV Extension issue.

    This has happened to me as well once or twice. An old text will pop up and I'll try to close it out and that will send the phone into IT Safe mode as well.

    I have 4.3.3 jb, and it does say it safe mode.

    And along with most of you it will also go into safe mode when I receive an old text and close out of it.


    Any eta on the bitesms update??

    I was forced out of a 4.2.1 jailbreak which I loved.

    Kept crashing. BiteSMS was the one program I did
    not even try uninstalling.

    Today I upgradeed to and jailbroke 4.3.3

    I will stay away from BiteSMS for now.

    The E and the X are cut off, killer. See? It's supposed to scroll like I said. It does not scroll on 4.3.3, so it stays at it Safe Mode. The E and X are cut off due to the lack of scrolling.

    Just download Crash Reporter from Cydia, it will tell you the most likely app thats making it crash.

    I know youre messing with me now. Youre messing with me right? Thats pretty good man, thats funny.


    Just in case:

    The word is EXIT. EXIT safe mode. The E and X in the word EXIT are cut off on 4.3.3 because it doesnt scroll left and right. That leaves IT SAFE MODE. Instead of EXIT SAFE MODE.

    To throw a bit more information out there, I'm still on 4.3.2 (didn't see the need to update to 4.3.3) and I'm having the problem on that.
