There was 5 updates last night for me in Cydia. Activator, Action Menu and a few others. After picking them up. One of the 5 had a conflict with iReal. Every Text I got completely locked my phone.

Even rebooting didn't help, sometimes you could not clear the text message away before the phone locked back up. I finally got iReal uninstalled. But I wish I knew which update was causing the issue with iReal.

I just updated Action Menu, Activator and several other apps and iRealSMS is still working fine for me. I didn't have an iReal update available; I must have updated it last week. Try a hard reset. If that doesn't work, try running Crash Reporter.

I tried a hard reset. But every time the phone booted up, it locked itself. Europa, do you have iBlacklist? I think it may have something to do with that one.

No, I don't have iBlacklist installed right now. You could try uninstalling iBlacklist and reinstalling iReal and see if that fixes it.

My problem was iBlacklist if you are running it. I found you can run one or the other, but not both. Some kindof incompatibility issue.

I decided to use BiteSMS until iReal gets fixed.

I know this goes in jailbreak forum but I'm not near a computer and I'm using the ieverything app.

Iv had irealsms for a long time like almost a year and never had any problems then today randomly out of nowhere it disappeared. Like my message app still says irealsms but it is not irealsms when I open it it is the regular message app and my quick reply and quick send are gone too. I did a respring a reboot a hard reset and even reinstalled then rebooted and it still is not there. Quick send and quick reply are the things most used on my phone and I need them back. Has this happened to anyone els? How can I fix this?
Thanks

I am having the same problem. Rebooted/reinstalled/completely removed-rebooted-completely fresh install-rebooted and still not working. And yes I did update already to the latest version. Still, I cannot access the app at all. It won't even show up in settings. Only the stock windows messaging app is showing at all. The iRealSMS package does show as being installed in Cydia as well.

I just noticed this problem today and have been working at a fix with no luck. Any other ideas?

Mine did the same thing. I went to cydia did the upgrade and the irealsms icon appeared but did not replace my normal message app like it did the first time I installed it. So now I have two message app and new messages are not recognized by irealsms. Hope there is a fix for this.

Do you have PhotoAlbums + by chance? Not sure if it effects iReal or not, but the latest update,from Photoalbums+ is screwing with Messages app & BiteSMS. If you do, uninstall PhotoAlbum app and see if things work again.

The same with me....this is not an issue...if you want, you can use" poof" in SBSettings to hide the Message app.

PhotoAlbum+ not causing any issues with iRealSMS for me :)

Assuming you have a conflicting App/Tweak
If you have SBSettings installed try switch OFF every mobile substrate except iRealSMS. Check and see if it's functioning correctly...if working ok, slowly switch ON Mobile Substrates 5 at a time, rechecking to see if iRealSMS is still working ok every time. When it does fail you will know that one of the 5 Mobile Substrates is conflicting with iRealSMS. Narrow down the culprit and uninstall the app/tweak through Cydia.

This actually worked to fix my issue. For some reason my Springtomize app reversed the visibility settings for my iRealSMS and Messages apps.

Thanks!

What firmware are you on? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it? If so, I would just use BiteSMS. It's had more support over the past year or so.
