    I rebooted my iPad, and when I tried to open Cydia, my screen shrunk to like 20% of it's normal screen size! What the heck??

    It only happens with Cydia, and no other apps!!

    1. Boot into Safe Mode
    2. Launch Cydia
    3. Uninstall the tweak that's causing the problem.

    And 1 is done by holding the volume up button as you restart the device

    Hmm, interesting.

    I managed to turn it on while holding the volume up button til the lockscreen appeared, but it doesn't say safe mode on the top, and my status bar is back (it was previously hidden with "No Status" tweak).

    Now I can open up Cydia. The last tweak I was trying to download was "Glasklart HD" theme, but it came up with a hash sum mismatch error. So I rebooted and got the problem.

    I checked in Cydia to see if it had downloaded, but it's not in my installed list. It was in the middle of downloading when I got that hash sum error, but doesn't appear to have made it through.

    Weird.



    EDIT:

    Still have the same problem upon rebooting without holding the up volume. How do I delete the app that's causing the problem if it never even downloaded into my installed list??

    :confused::confused::confused:

    Yup in safe mode, all tweaks are disabled (such as the status in your case). So go into cydia while in safe mode and delete the app causing issues

    Are you sure its Glasklart?

    No. The problem is that I've downloaded so many tweaks without rebooting (only respringing), that I have no idea which one it could be. I guess I'll have to delete the ones that seem most likely (not springtomize, iconoclasm, etc.), and keep rebooting til I get it right.

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    Try deleting the last thing you installed successfully

    I got it back to normal. I got impatient and deleted 4 tweaks, all having to do with "invisible" folders or invisible icon themes.

    No great loss.

    Thanks again!
