Hi,

I recently downloaded "My Profiles" from Cydia and it screwed up my iPhone. The main problem is EVERY app I open including settings opens in this tiny window. I can't ssh because I don't know my IP address since I can't turn on wifi. I'm in serious need of help. Macrumor friends and my dear family. HELP ME PLEASE. Every app I open looks like this:

Is there a way I can force the phone into safe mode? I tried about 10 hard resets.

Any other tips? I really need to keep this jailbreak. It's life or death almost. Not really but I'd love to keep the jb.

I doubt it, think he got a 4S but let me call Miss Cleo to make sure:D
:D,The only reason I say it is a 4 is because I had the same tweak installed I had the same glitch but this never happend on my old 3gs.The way i fixed it was by restoring but apple was still signing the 4.3.3 firmware so I did not lose my untethered jailbreak.

EDIT:FYI I am on 5.0.1 right now.

I had the same issue with my iPhone 4. I was able to get it in safe mode, and then go through Cydia and selectively uninstall what I though was causing it (or the last think I installed).

Pretty sure there is a way to fix it without restoring, don't give up just yet.

This is a mobile substrate issue. Reinstall it

You do realize I cannot get into any apps currently. Explain how I can resinstall it without accessing cydia?

Wifi is NOT on. :( I dont know why i turned it off! Can I ssh without wifi?

If you have installed something and need to uninstall it without losing your jailbreak/can't get into your phone to do a traditional uninstall, you can always do the following:

Download/Install iFunbox http://ifunboxmac.com/

Plug in your phone via USB and open up the SSH Terminal Window

You need to know the package name that you installed "com.XXX.xXX" and run the following command:

apt-get --purge remove (source name)

then type in "reboot" in the command line to reboot the phone

-------
Now if you want to reinstall Cydia without re-Jailbreaking this can be done also, not sure of your knowledge level regarding Jailbreaking etc, I had some trouble on my end but had a package jack up my phone and was able to fix it by manually removing the package and reinstalling Cydia. I do have some issues with my iMessages and Facetime after the fact, but I never use those anyway, so I can live without it until the 5.1 jaibreak comes out.
