    There's a bug. Apparently the repo or the dev accidentally uploaded the wrong version. Stay away until the proper update is available in Cydia. Version 1.7 could possibly cause crashes. It does for me and a lot if other people. If I open the settings page, it crashes the settings app. If I open the notification center, it crashes to safe mode.

    Just giving everyone the heads up.

    I'm jealous! Looking at the dev's twitter account, looks like the current version will be uploaded to Cydia soon.

    That's good then. Last thing I want is an unstable tweak that would crash in the most inconvenient time. Thanks for the headsup!;)

    Lol no problem. I wish mine didnt crash. Up until now, my JB has been rock solid. Whenever my phone crashes (it's very, very rare), its usually because of a situation like this. So I can't complain.

    I feel guilty though because someone else started a thread announcing that the new version included an LTE/3G/Edge toggle but quickly turned to the crashing issues. Needless to say, I hate multiple threads all discussing the same topic. Hopefully the mods will merge the two just to keep things cohesive. If not no biggie. This thread will be a dead topic very soon once the updated version comes out in Cydia.

    ----------

    Good point. I'm using a 4S on 6.1.2.

    I had to test it, seems to be fine on my iPhone 5. Might be safe from the current crashes.

    Any chance it's conflicting with other Cydia packages? That would explain the sporadic results.

    It's been updated!

    ----------

    No. The dev tweeted that ModMyI uploaded the wrong version. Honest mistake!

    It worked on my iPad Mini but froze the notification window on my iPhone 5, same Cydia apps loaded on both at the same version except the iPhone 5 has Zephyr installed also.

    Still crashes but go into the NCSettings in the settings app and reset all settings and it works.

    Updated to 1.7 and kept crashing. Removed it upon reading a tweet from Jamie(the dev) saying that the wrong version had been uploaded to the repo and that the new one will be up soon. Now updated to 1.7-1 and all is well!! It's now safe do update!! :)
