    I have an ipad Air 2, ios 9.0.2 JB and I would like to know which Cydia tweak can cause the iPad
    to reboot when I try to increase or decrease the volume. I can press the volume buttons just after
    the iPad reboots but after awhile if I do it then the ipad reboots. I can't remember or even find which
    app or tweak that I installed that could be the culprit. Anyone have any ideas? Would be very grateful.

    Please list your tweaks. Without knowing, I'd suggest Activator if you have that.

    Funny, just after I posted my query, I saw at the bottom another post from July 13, 2015
    "iphone restart after pressing volume button".

    There someone asked if StatusHUD2 was installed and it turns out that I had that tweak also
    installed. I removed it and sim sala bim the volume buttons work fine again.

    I search through this forums with almost everything I could think of but that post didn't show up
    until after I posted mine. I was almost sure I wasn't the first to have this problem but anyway it
    is fixed and I'm happy now.

    Yeah, StatusHUD is still waiting for an iOS 9 update, let alone 9.3.3.

    Generally the best way to troubleshoot something like this is to think about what tweak might be related.

    For instance, your problem was with the volume up and down button. I wouldn't be looking through my list of tweaks thinking that Callbar or Eclipse 3 or Couria or so on would be causing this. I'd be looking for something related to volume or sound because that's what is being affected. StatusHUD or some other volume/sound related tweak would have been the one I checked.

    When you really have nothing to go on this kind of thinking can really help.

    Cydia also has a recents tab and will show in chronological order which tweaks you have installed/updated. It's always best if you start having an issue shortly after installing a tweak to focus on the recent tweaks. In your case this might not have helped as I guess StatusHUD wasn't a recent install.

    By the way. Was it really a reboot or just a respring? I know when StatusHUD was causing issues for me it was causing resprings not reboots.

    Too bad that's not as helpful on the first day of the jailbreak when you install dozens of tweaks and don't encounter the problem until a few hours later :mad:

    I would also suggest using icleaner to disable all your tweaks, and re-enable tweaks in batches of 10-20 at a time until the problem occurs. And then single out that batch of tweaks until the offending tweak(s) is/are found. (Best way to fix reproducible problems if you don't know where to start even after looking at the tweaks you recently installed/updated)

    That's true! :D

    However, just for myself I decided that when a new jailbreak drops (and I'm stock) that I install no more than 4 or 5 tweaks at a time, not counting the bigger more complex tweaks which I install one at a time.

    Takes longer, but I've really screwed myself in the past by just mass installing tweaks from my list.

    That's the best thing to do.
    Slow down, install, test the hack and make sure it works and doesn't cause any conflicts.
    Then install again slowly by verifying as you go.

    Well I really don't know the difference between reboot and respring. I get a white screen with the Apple
    logo. Never really cared about the difference.
    And yes I did think about some tweak that would affect the volume and I went through the tweaks I have
    installed, and they are that many, but I just didn't reflect on what StatusHUD2 did. Just thought it was
    a cool tweak.

    I had the same respring on adjusting volume issue with StatusVol 2, although only in some (I suspect full screen) apps. Turns out if you turn off 'invert colors', 'dynamic colors', 'disable background' and 'hide time', it works beautifully, hasn't crashed once. The only thing is that you'll always have white dots on a black background, instead of transparency.
