    I just jailbroke my iphone running 5.0.1 successfully. After installin various things via Cydia I installed winterboard. After i rebooted after installing winterboard now whenever i load any apps or phone functions (mail, safari, messages, settings, etc) it only displays in the top left quarter of the screen. It shrinks down to quarter size and i cannot correctly tap any of the buttons / settings inside the app.

    Any idea whay i can do to fix this? Or how to just start over with a fresh Jailbreak? It basically makes my phone unuseable.

    Just had to force it into safe mode and respring back to normal. After I installed mobile substrate again it still goes to the quarter screen after a tethered boot. Just gotta use activator to force a safe mode respring.

    If I were to do a clean install an re jailbreak it, how would I do the clean install?

    This happened to me as well. The culprit was Auto Location. Once I removed that and rebooted, all was well.
