Today I was installing a few things through Cydia and all of a sudden my iPhone restarted. That in itself is not too weird but when my iPhone rebooted it booted into “Safe Mode.” I had never seen this before. I got a pop-up warning that said,
“Mobile Substrate Safe Mode. We apologize for the inconvenience, but SpringBoard has just crashed. A recent software installation, upgrade, or removal might have been the cause of this. Your device is now running in Safe Mode. All extensions that support this safety system are disabled. Reboot (or restart SpringBoard) to return to normal mode.”
When I hit Dismiss it went to my SpringBoard but everything was grey and it said Safe Mode where the time is usually displayed. Neither Doug nor I had ever seen or heard of this before. Let me know in the comments if you iPhone or iPod Touch has ever booted into Safe Mode.
