    Hello all. I have an iPhone 4 running 4.1 jailbroken with pwnage tool. I am getting a lot of crashing on my phone and I have to reboot it to get it working again. Apps like iheartradio, netflix, even things like safari and mail have crashed. I don't understand..I've done searches but I can't seem to find anything. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Restore and set up as new using the custom firmware. Never restore from a back-up.

    If you did that, then try creating another custom firmware, with just Cydia in it. Custom firmwares can become screwy if you add too much to them in the Pwnage settings.

    Maybe you installed something buggy from cydia.
    Mine works fine on 4.1 with ipsw created with pwnage.

    I'm running 4.1 JB also, but I used greenpois0n. Apps crash about 2-3 times a day. There's no pattern to it ... any app could happen to crash.

    Have you tried using CrashLog to identify exactly what is crashing? It can be very useful to identify the specific hack or app that is causing the instability...
    Don't just assume that because you see, for example, Safari crash, that it is Safari to blame. It very often isn't...
    CrashLog is your friend.

    Yeah same for me. There's no pattern. It's annoying

    You need to rejailbreak and re-add apps until you find, which one is interfering with the others.

    You also might want to list what JB apps you have.
