spring board keep's crashing.
i've noticed a lot lately the i keep getting these error messages that springboard has crashed and it has gone into safe mode. i alway's hit restart and it goes back to being in "jailbreak mode". how ever this has been happening 3 or 4 times a week. has this been happening to anyone else lately? and if so is there a solution to remedy it without me having to keep restarting it over and over.

Do you by chance have iCaughtU Pro installed? I was having tons of springboard crashes when I received a SMS when my phone was locked. I don't remember why, (think I read it somewhere) but I uninstalled iCaughtU Pro (was really hard to get rid of) and then respring and no more springboard crashes ...

If that's all you have--no other tweaks at all, no Winterboard, no themes, no anything--then there isn't much that could go wrong. Make sure you have Folder Enhancer Fix turned Off in your Barrel settings, and also check that you aren't trying to use Springtomize to tweak something that one of the other apps is already tweaking. Trying to have two apps change the same things can lead to trouble.

I was experiencing numerous springboard crashes while I was jailbroken on 5.0.1. This and wanting the ability to delete photos from photo stream are the reason I upgraded to 5.1.1 and jailbroke again. So far (knock on wood) I haven't had any springboard crashes where in the past I would have a couple by now. I also have all the same JB tweaks and apps installed.
You may want to upgrade before its too late. Plus the battery life improvement is also worth the upgrade.

I had the same problem with colorkeyboard in 5.0.1, and was forced into upgrading to 5.1 before there was a downgrade path or jailbreak available. Since again being able to jailbreak, I've decided to live with the OEM keyboard.
Colorkeyboard, IMO, isn't worth the hassle.

My iPhone 4 crashes to Safe Mode on nealy every incomming SMS.
I've been jail breaking and tweaking iPhones from the days of the iPhone 3G
Updated my iPhone 4 on every iOS soon as the jailbreak comes out.
So sat on 5.1.0 without a problem until the 5.1.1 absynth 2.0 came out then updated
Jailbroke and installed my old tweaks back. (see below)
Now, on almost every incomming SMS the phone crashes to safemode.
Here's the low down..
Incidentally, I Jailbroke a friends 4s on 5.1.1 installed 99% of the same tweaks and his is
Crashing to safemode also.
EDIT: uninstalled Unfolder and it just crashed again when exactly when I got an incomming SMS
So that's one tweak off the list.

I'm reading a few reports of iCaughtU Pro causing this 'crash on incomming SMS' thing.
Some saying its causing the Native SMS client problems and some saying its crashing Bite SMS.
In all cases the removal of iCaughtU Pro stops the crashing, and I must say after uninstalling it myself an hour ago AND 3 SMS received with no crash,
In beginning to believe I've found the conflict.
Now it's worth also saying that I updated iCaughtU Pro to the latest ver, and didn't have any problems when I was on iOS 5.1.0
These springbord crash to safemode problems only started after I updated the iOS to 5.1.1 and Jailbroke 4 mins later.
I'll report back if I find anything new.
Hopfully my info may help others, not just members of this forum but people who find their way here
Via a google search of the problem as I did. Fingers crossed
