    well since this morning i have found that my settings wont last a respring. almost all the setting sin the settings app will be applied but reset when i go into the app again or respring. i can edit the plist file in the preferences folder and can change the settings but its annoying and i cant help thinking that sooner or later this will cause me real trouble.

    --Edit
    also, if i try to activate safe mode in sbsettings it just reloads like normal. no safe mode.

    I know this may seem counterproductive, but try resetting all settings.

    Have you tried manually deleting the directory (/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences)?
