When I arrive at my house, I manually start Wi-Fi Sync (Settings > General > iTunes Wi-Fi Sync > Sync Now) to back up my data. But sometimes my iPad crashes into Safe Mode during this process.

I looked through the error log (Settings > General > About > Diagnostics & Usage > Data > LatestCrash.plist) and it was constantly referring to libsystem_kernel.dylib, which is making me think that this might be caused by my tethered jailbreak.

Does anyone else have this problem, and does anyone know how to fix it?

  • Safe Mode? There is no such thing. Could you explain further? – Jason Salaz Oct 29 '11 at 1:12
  • @VxJasonxV I'm referring to MobileSubstrate's safe mode feature on jailbroken devices. – kirb Oct 29 '11 at 1:33
  • Oh, I didn't catch the 'tethered jailbreak' line. My apologies. – Jason Salaz Oct 29 '11 at 1:55
  • It's something you've installed through Cydia or MobileSubstrate itself. Note MobileSubstrate has nothing to do with the jailbreak and is only installed to add functionality to 3rd party apps outside of Apple's ecosystem. – user10355 Oct 29 '11 at 10:05
  • @cksum I know that MS is separate from the jailbreak, but I was saying libsystem_kernel.dylib might be what's crashing SpringBoard. – kirb Oct 29 '11 at 15:32
