I jail broke my IPhone 4s with absinthe on the firmware 5.1.1. Everything worked well and cydia ran fine. That is until I turned my phone off. Now every single app on the phone opens and shrinks to the top left hand corner. Is there anything I can do besides restoring the phone? Thank you

yes there is, if you have sbsettings installed reboot the phone in save mode, after that respring.

if you don't have sbsettings installed, turn phone off

Turn back on while holding volume up button all the way until it is booted up.

You should now be in substrate save mode, open cydia, you can uninstall the app that caused it.

Also install sbsettings, is a must have app anyway, now open sbsettings and respring.

Wow thank you that worked perfectly. You saved me a big headache. I just have one question, will this happen every time I turn the phone off bc i used the unteathered jailbreak through absinthe. Once again thank you sooo much for your help.
