      ya do a full restore and rejailbreak it. if it does that again... that means your installing something thats conflicting with your iphone jailbroken.
      i restarted once more then went into cydia and they had an update and i did that now it works great. Got my backgrounder and sbsettings back . thanks for the reply.

      Ok, first of all Beta software wont ruin your phone. If that was true NO ONE would ever test them. Everything needs to be tested to go from Beta to Final, but obviously you're not familure with the developing community where many times the thing you call a "Beta" turns out to get you to the same place as a final release. The only people "laughing" are the scores of people that have already jailbroke thier phones after they've read your ignorant post. If you're scared to test a Beta then you shouldn't be on a developing oriented forum. Try nick.com. Probably more up your alley.

      As far as "created by some guy" comment, you're talking about a genius in this community who has done nothing but contribute. When you release a jailbreak method come back and open your mouth. In this community we support ALL developers. Dev Team, individuals, but ALL are supported. If you start picking sides and bashing others all you're doing is showing how ignorant you are.

      If all you are doing is a sync, you will still have all of your JB apps, but iTunes won't back them up. If you are doing a RESTORE, then write them down because a restore will kill your JB and you will have to start over.

      I had no trouble with intelliscreen, other than I DID get the spinning wheel of death with the update to Rock App, BUT I was able to reboot out of that. Are you stuck with the wheel?

      so does going from RC1 to RC2 make anything faster? Do I need to do this? Already done with RC1 and things working great.

      If you want to use Winterboard in the near future you'll need the kernal patches included in RC2. It doesn't rejailbreak your phone if you've already done the RC1 method.
