Problem with Random Reboots
hello, Im untethered on 5.0.1(IP4), and in the past few days have been having problems with random reboots, they happen at least twice a day, Does anyone know of any tweak or cydia app that causes such an issue?, can the problem be that I have too many tweaks? Help will be greatly appreciated.

Um, I can't help but notice you have CrashReporter and Syslogd on there...have you tried opening CR to see what it says about the crashes? It's not always obvious, but very often it will give you a list of suspected causes.
I can tell you that I had reboot issues when I was using CameraLocker, and that I've read about similar issues with androidlockxt but I see you've uninstalled it. Not sure other than that but it could be a conflict instead of a single app. One other idea is to go into the More>Mobile Substrate Addons section of SBSettings; once there you can turn off tweaks one by one to see how your performance is affected. Just remember: don't uninstall any of those while they're turned off in SBS.

It does seem kind of long to me, but I tend to keep my phone running pretty lean.
If I were you I'd probably look first at CameraLocker and AnyLockApp since they both alter the slider section of the lockscreen. Maybe there's a conflict there? Otherwise, I think the one-by-one option is unfortunately going to be the way to do it.
If you can pinpoint the reboots a bit, that would probably help...as in, do they happen when you get a text coming in, or maybe when you're using some specific app, etc. I used to have an issue that was somehow related to texts coming in just as I was doing something with my home button for instance.
One other thing: there is a known issue with the FolderEnhancer Fix toggle in Barrel conflicting with IntelliscreenX when turned ON. I know you don't have ISX but maybe it's conflicting with a different app...if you have that ON in Barrel, try turning it OFF for a bit.
Thanks Massie, the reboots seem to happen randomly, mostly when my phone is not being used, but now that you mention that about the slider conflict, the reboots tend to happen when I handle the phone with the screen on but locked, for example: locking the phone and setting it somewhere while touching the screen. ill try disabling those tweaks, thanks a lot. about folder enhancer I have that fix for barrel off.
anyways thanks a lot. ill keep trying and will let you know what happens.

I don't think the number of tweaks matter because I have a ton also and very seldom have problems... Except with spire which killed EVERYTHING... I was having issues yesterday and removed now playing tweak... No issues today... Also color keyboard gave me issues in the beginning...

Well after uninstalling camera locker I havent had any reboots so far, Im also noting improved battery life, nowplaying hasnt given me any problema, though it is still too soon to jump to conclusions I believe my problem is solved, thanks Massie and the rest for your support.

Just to clarify, I meant nowlistening... And I kept having apps crash... Tapatalk, twitter and CYDIA! (oh the horror, watching cydia crash Everytime you try to open it) anyways I had recently installed grooveshark. Grooveshark utilities, and nowlistening... (not looking for opinions) so I just ssh'ed all three out, rebooted and was fine again... I will put my money of gsutility... But it COULD have been nowlistening...
Also crash reporter kept reporting a 7.05dylib as causing the issue, so I had to manually clear a cydia package....
As I write this in realizing it was DEFINITELY gsutility and probably not nowlistening

Re: Problem with Random Reboots
I have the same problem, except my random reboots are very often. As in, I have rebooted numerous times attempting to keep my phone on just to see this page hoping for a solution. I ended up borrowing a friend's tablet to try to find a solution. My phone won't stay on long enough to do anything. It will stay on about 60 seconds before rebooting again.

Re: Problem with Random Reboots
@Lozi: I saw that you have the two big fixes installed. Those come bundled with InfiniDock and sometimes cause a problem.
These are probably not the culprit in your case, but if you really don't have InfiniDock installed, you can safely remove them.
