So everytime I open up an application (any one), it opens and then minimizes to the top left corner of the screen. Anyone else have this same issue?

That's because Activator still not compatible with Ios5.CMIIW

lol yea I gave up. I tried rebooting several times and for the life of me couldn't get it to work. I've been fighting with it all day. Earlier I used aptbackup and that pretty much bricked it, took me a couple hours to get it restored again and ios 5 reinstalled. Maybe beta 8 will go better or when more support is there for activator and winterboard.

Thanks for all the help everyone

all you had to do was if you had activator set hold home button to safe mode or any other gesture. you would have to guess on touch screen since it only took a 1/4 of your screen but that's how i always have done mine. put into safe mode and restart springboard after that. everything would work normal as usual after that

i have absolutly no problems with activator.....it has been somewhat fixed

i just make sure to install uisettings for notification center first after cydia,it has a safemode button....then no worries.

this might be something we need to keep and eye on till all these new problems are patched/ figuered out for ios5,even after release i imagine.

If you didn't want to go through all of the trouble of dealing with the 1/4 screen and you don't have SBSettings/something similar, just Restore the phone and do it one more time, this time making sure to pick up something like SBSettings along the way. Problem solved

the only way to solve this problem is by going to safe mode, and then restart back to normal mode..

if you havent install sbsetting, you can find the deb, and install it using 3rd party program such as ifunbox..

or you can also restore and then re-jailbreak, but make sure you install sbsetting first than any other cydia tweak..
