3G with IOS4.2.1 & Redsnow JB crashing
Please advise. Running 3G with IOS 4.2.1 & Redsnow JB, everything was working perfectly. I installed the new Cydia update, now whenever I click on a link in my emails so that I can view it in Safari my phone resprings to safe mode and then does another automatic respring and returns to the home springboard. Btw, Cydia's running perfectly though. Please help cause I'm really not in the mood to redo my entire phone AGAIN.

Thank you for replying, you were right. I identified the problem by illimination and it turned out to be my "multitasking function". I Googled a fix and got it. Ran the fix and I'm good to go. Thanks again.
Here's what I found:

As some of you may know, Apple borked multitasking for older devices just to be mean to us. Well we finally figured out how to make it work.
DO NOT use redsn0w to enable multitasking.. Do it manually, it has some issues and will screw with your device otherwise.
iPhone 3G = N82AP
iPod touch 2G = N72AP
What You'll Need
A jailbroken iDevice on 4.2.1(Orlly?)
Plist editor(iFile or whatever you have)
Let's Get To It!
Alright, open up WinSCP or iFile, and Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app and open up either N82AP or N72AP.plist.
Make sure Multitasking is enabled, if you don't see
Then add it.
Find the section that says
And change the 1 to a 2. Respring and there you go."

Hey RedDevil, thanks for the info! I knew it was multi-tasking (because it always crashed whenever I double-clicked and selected to open another app) but I couldn't find a way to fix.
I had installed zToggle (via Cydia) to disable multi-tasking, but I took the risk, disabled zToggle and followed those steps and now it works.
I still think my iPhone is slower with multi-tasking on, but I'll try it out for a couple days to see what I prefer. I was just getting used to having it turned off, lol.

Anyone else experiencing lines in buttons with multi-tasking turned on?

Looking at the Send Button. there's a white line. It goes away when I turn multi-tasking off. I can't seem to get rid of it any other way.
