    Alright so i was just using cydia and was about to install something when all of a sudden my whole ipod crashes and reboots automatically(thanks to cydia

I already have an app that locks the ipod when it is clicked on my springboard, which is fine with me, but is there a way to fix the problem? I already tried rebooting the ipod, but no luck. Would the restore be the only thing that fixes it, and if it doesnt, should i get it replaced?

    try using it in safe mode n see if it works (cydia apps maybe affecting it), if not then restore.

    Delete the cydia apps first before you restore. It might work.

    Alright thanks. I tried safe mode but that didnt work but i found the problem. It was a toggle in supreme preferences called "dont lock ever" so i guess it disabled the sleep/wake button. Thanks anyways.
