    I must have installed something that made Siri not work. when I start Siri it makes beeping noises like it usually does but then the springboard crashes and goes into safe mode.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    What have you installed from Cydia recently? I recommend you install Crash Reporter from Cydia, it's a free .deb and it will create a crash file which sometimes can be helpful in trying to work out the reasons behind the actual crash i.e a list of suspects.

    Launch Siri again and wait for it to crash then re-launch Crash Reporter.

    Did you install any Siri tweaks? If you can, access mobile substrate options and shut off tweaks one at a time till you find the offender. If you don't know how/or have access to that, try accessing Siri in safe mode and see If she at least works there. Do you have a 4s or are you using Siri via spire on a 4 or 3GS?

    I just tried safe mode and still crashes...tried shutting off tweaks one by one and turning back on one by one still crashes...I have 4s

    I may have to restore to 5.1 and rejailbreak, there is an untethered jailbreak for 5.1 correct?

    The app will populate you a report, it will also list possible suspects.

    Are you on 5.1? If your shsh blobs are saved on 5.0.1 then use redsn0w and restore as new and re-jb it, you don't need to upgrade to 5.1 if shsh is saved.

    The OP does indeed have a 4S. (See post #6).

    Just so everyone is clear, here's a direct quote from the pros at iPhone Dev Team:

    No I got it directly from Cydia.

    Also on my crash report it has primary suspect: lib apt-pkg.dylib.4.6.0
    It says find package in cydia: APT 0.7 Stirct (lib) but when I try to remove it, it tells me if I do remove I may not be able to use Cydia and IOS? So I didn't remove it.

    another problem! Now when I click ANYTHING it comes up:

    Invalid operation
    activator has called- [LAActivator registerListener:forName:]
    improperly fromm outside SpringBoard.
    Contact Activator's developer.

    I am about ready to just update to 5.1! grrrrr

    Have you tried to uninstall(temporarily) Activator..?
    Remember there is no jailbreak for A5 devices on 5.1
    It's worth keeping at it until you crack the problem.

    How about removing all Cydia tweaks, doing a hard reboot, then launch Siri.
