    Default Has Cydia completely crashed on anybody else?

    I'm running the Evasi0n jailbreak on my 4S (6.1) and it went into safety mode. Eventually it shut down. When I restarted, it was on the Apple logo for several minutes. Now when I try to open Cydia it force closes. Any ideas?

    Not what you want to hear I would bet, but your best bet may just be restore and start again. (I doubt it'd do much but I'd even download the evasi0n app again)

    Try opening the task switcher kill Cydia and any other JB apps. Reboot the phone and then try to launch Cydia. If it opens my suggestion would be to un-install all the JB apps wait for another day when Cydia is not being hit so hard and is more stable then re-install all your apps. If after the reboot Cydia still doesn't open like chadec said restore while Apple hasn't put out an update and re-JB then wait for a day to install the JB apps.

    Bah! I figured that's what I'd have to do. It was really odd. Everything ran fine yesterday and last night, and then this morning it randomly did this. I hope it holds this time.

    iTunes backup. Now it seems that springboard is crashing so it won't leave safe mode?

    Mostly common ones. I did install an htc clock tweak this morning, right before I had the problems. I got Cydia to open (in safe mode) and removed it. Then I killed Cydia, restarted and my phone is stuck on the apple logo...again.

    Force restart it. The hanging up on the apple logo is a known Evasi0n issue that should get addressed soon

    Was the clock tweak from big boss or modmyi? Or a different repo?

    I just removed Activator and everything went back to normal. Restarted my phone, the logo came up and after a couple of minutes it's back up and running fine (seemingly). I wouldn't have thought it would be activator, since I installed that yesterday shortly after I installed jailbreak.

    I'd be hard pressed to believe it's activator. I have that running on my iPad and phone with zero issues.

    Hmmm...not really sure what it could've been. I guess I'll wait and see if it happens again, although I'd rather it not.

    No problem, wish there were a definitive result but at least your phone is usable

    I'm actually not that surprised I remember back when the JB was just released for iOS 5 there were people who had the same sort of issue with Activator. I would say depending on how important Activator is to you backup the iPhone reload the OS and redo the JB. If Activator is not that important then don't worry about it.

    It's not terribly important. Everything seems fine now...I panicked for a bit though.

    That's why my primary phone is still (and likely will be for a bit) on 5.1.1 ... I need my phone to be reliable most of the time. So I have extras to experiment with
