    I recently updated my iPhone 4 to 5.0.1 and then used redsnow to untethered jailbreak.

    Since then it freezes and crashes regularly. Atleast 2-3 times a day it has to be restarted/resprung. Did I do something wrong?
    I installed a few new packages that I didnt have on my 4.3.2 jailbreak. Did I install something new that is causing this?
    Im having regular problems with biteSMS and SBSettings.

    Any suggestions? :confused: I'd rather not restore and re-jailbreak because it takes a long time to reinstall all the packages and get the settings the way I like. I used appsync and aptbackup but they didnt work last time.

    Thanks

    I'd try to limit what you packages you have installed. I have maybe 10 packages that I need and my iOS 5.0.1 phone is as stable and fast as stock.

    I would advice the same thing. Just uninstall the tweaks you don't actually need as most of them are really unstable on 5.X. I used to have around 20 tweaks, now I'm reduced to 5 and I never have a springboard crash or reboot anymore. Luckily you can jailbreak untethered now, because the reboots on 5.0 were hell.

    And to think some people wonder why iOS is a closed operating system. :rolleyes:

    Yah, I restored three times before deciding to forget jailbreak for the time. I have actually paid for multiple apps and can't use them because of freeze ups and white apple of death......

    P.S. It would be super if a list of stable apps were made somewhere, but I guess how they interact together may be a factor which would be different for just about everyone

    70 packages?! No wonder it's slow or crashing... Damn...

    Start one by one, there's no other way...

    I have 30+ tweaks and my iP4 5.0.1 is stable and fast as stock. It's a matter of being selective, and adding stuff individually instead of mass murder. Then you know right away when a tweak is not good for your system without having to delete them all.;)

    There is also this google compatibilty reference, which I have found highly useful.

    I had 172 packages on my iPhone 4 (JB on 4.3.3) and it ran perfectly fine. When I updated to 5.01 and JB, I never could get pkg backup to restore properly.

    I would recommend sticking to this guide ^^^

    70+ packages is ALOT to begin with, I would go through those and get rid of ones you're not using. Also it is vital to make sure that the tweaks you are using are compatible with ios5. I've already learned the hard way that using older tweaks that aren't compatible yet can cause you alot of heartache, and leave you no choice but to restore :mad:
