    i was unable to send/receive texts for a little, and my phone said I had almost full 3G. so I restarted my phone and that "sad iPhone" wallpaper came up along with a notification saying how I was in safe mode, etc. so I restarted a few more times and now it's back to normal.

    should I restore or does this just happen sometimes?

    It should be alright if it's back to normal now. Sometimes crashes just happen.

    Or it could be related to a recently installed jailbreak app.

    I get a crash once every other day or so, not a big deal. Just respring and it should be fine.

    If all else fails, just use safe mode to delete the last thing you installed. Hint: don't install 3 things at once or it becomes difficult to troubleshoot.

    If the problem continues or you experience other weirdness, you probably want to look at what you've got installed. Some apps have problems or cause conflicts. I have tried and ditched several JB apps.

    Mine crashes every time I reboot, without fail. Once I tell MobileSubstrate to respring, it works perfect until the next reboot. No idea what is doing it, but since it is only a very very minor inconvenience, I'll deal :)

    Keep in mind, all of what causes these crashes are things that interact/modify with Springboard. Often these are the items that modify the look and feel of the device such as themes or icon layouts.
