    My wife has a iPhone 4 that is jail broke running 5.0.1. Over the past week or so, she has been having issues with the phone turning itself off (regardless of how much battery power it has left). The only way to get it to turn back on is plug the phone into either the wall or computer. She hasn't downloaded any new apps for a while.

    Any logical suggestions?:confused:

    App store apps or Cydia apps? Try going through her Cydia packages and uninstalling the most recent changes. Try a hard reset as well.

    Neither. She hasn't downloaded any of the changes in probably 4 weeks. I tried a hard reset a few days ago. Despite all those, it's still happening.

    Crap, after doing that, nothing else comes to mind other than restoring :rolleyes:

    Am I able to restore it directly from iTunes and use the latest back up? If so, will it keep all her recent text messages, phone calls, etc?

    It will only restore whatever is in her last backup. If you backup before you do a restore, it will restore all the current texts and phone calls.

    Yes but it will also restore all of her Cydia junk and that will go into the "other" category. My suggestion is delete as much Cydia content as you can, delete the backup and redo the back up, then restore from the backup so there will be as little junk leftover as possible.
