Push the restart button on the safe mode screen

I am not seeing any safe mode screen. Like I said, the screen looks normal. As soon as I enter a app, it puts that whole screen into a minature size screen on the top left corner. I can't even tap on anything because it's too small.

easy solution.

1. use sbsettings to restart into SAFE mode (sbsettings->power->safe mode)
2. unlock phone, start up an app or two
3. exit safe mode (respring)

that's it. no need to delete any apps or anything.

this happens to me every time i reboot my iphone, i just follow these steps and it's solved. i have never not had this occur on my phone, even after a fresh install. not sure what's causing it, but this is the solution.

This issue is caused by having an app called "Activator" installed.
Use SBSettings to enter safe mode and hit restart when you see the "this error was not caused by Mobile Substrate" message. You will have to do this every time you restart the phone.
