    So, I (stupidly) installed the 'Fold to Unlock' Cydia tweak on my iPad, without reading the section where it stated that it would not work on an iPad. Now, I'm locked out of my homescreen, and I just wanted to know if there is any way I can get back in so I can kill the tweak (without, hopefully, having to restore).

    Do you have "View on lockscreen" set on any of your apps? Preferably email or iMessage? If you do, you might be able to get back into your screen if you receive a new message.

    I had that when Springtomize 2 got rid of my slide to unlock knob and I couldn't get back into my iPad. Luckily my friend sent me an iMessage right then and saved the day.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Unfortunately, it didn't work tho :(

    I think I'll just restore, as I've been wanting to use the 2.0.1 absinthe to fix the hanging issue. Thanks again, though

    No need to restore. If you have an up to date version of MobileSubstrate, you can fix it. Turn off you iPad, then turn it back on while holding the upper volume button.
