    I have an Iphone 4 jailbroken and though it has crashed several times it was ok after a respring.

    Researched little bit and found out the 5 dock app was causing lots of people to crash their iphone 4 so i went ahead and deleted it along with AT&T Carrier logo and a sound theme that I had.

    But today all of sudden I wake up in the morning and the phone crashes. No matter after how many restarts it keeps going into safe mode.

    Couple jailbreak packages i have are Installous, Rock, SBSstetting, and Activator. I don't have any of the apps that are not compatible in the spreadsheet list so don't know what really causing this problem.

    Anyone else have a similar issue?

    I have the same problem, but have deleted all of the Cydia apps I added after j/b (including the 5 icon dock) and the iPhone still crashes/running in Safe Mode for several days.

    No Rock on this phone at all... only Cydia.

    I'm consider restoring.

    Thanks,

    No problems here with Five Icon Dock added via Cydia.

    Other JB apps installed are: Activator, biteSMS, Notifier, PDF Patch, Remove Background SBToggle, and SBSettings. My one Safe Mode crash happened with an early, non-iOS4 compatible version of iRealSMS. Since then, everything has been great with the iPhone 4 JB.

    It shouldn't b rock causing the problems but if you go to rock/manage extensions you can turn off your apps that might be causing spring board failure

    Cydia and Rock don't like each other very well. Delete Rock and leave it off. When installed they sort- a have an internal battle as to who is going to manage. Also I would uninstall installous and stay away from it. It has been known to create issues also... BUT... it's your call...

    Never an issue here. Kinda need rock for the licensing on some apps also. Its not hard to do updates in cydia and only do updates in rock to the apps that need it, ie:My3g

    theringer, your right... I found that Rock and Cydia clash over SBSettings and a few other apps. If you download an app through Rock... update through rock. Same with Cydia... If done by the other... Issues... That's what I've found... For me decided to "TOTALLY" clean Rock off iphone and use Cydia... There were some things I liked Rock over Cydia for but I figured Cydia was intigrated in with JB and Rock was an "option". Since I've had NO Major issues... I guess its a choice of preference.
