Thread: Skype Thread

    Default Skype Thread
    Ok so I've downloaded this from the app store.
    it's hell buggy, has crashed every time i've tried to open it,
    stays open for 30 seconds then crashes, can't enter my username or password

    i've reinstalled it several times, restarted my phone and no luck, super annoying

    any suggestions?/

    I was on wifi.

    What part of the world are you in?

    I was trying to keep the program open so if someone else called but it won't stay open pass 2-3 minutes

    I'll leave mine open as well

    Its a 3g. No torrents going right now. I am going to try switching some stuff off. Just finished resetting my phone. The program crashes after 2 minutes

    EDIT: turned off wifi and it still crashes on 3g. I did make a couple of calls on the 3g network and it sounds good!

    EDIT 2: In safe mode the app doesn't crash at all. Been up and running for 10 minutes. I think skype is just a memory hog.

    Its an OK program. Really loses its functionality that a) doesn't stay running all the time without backgrounder and b) can't make calls over 3G but it gets the job done.

    If you are having problems, try to remove mobile substrate.

    Im having the same problem as the person who made this thread. It will show the skype logo, then go back to my springboard.

    If it is crashing on you then upgrade mobilesub in cydia. To get it to work over 3g, there is a program in cydia that tricks apps into thinking they are on wifi

    Are you using voipOver3G? I tried to add Skype to the info.plist but it still doesn't work over 3G. Can you post your info.plist for voipOver3G?

    I am using voipover3g.

    Edit this : /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/VoIPover3G.plist

    Add "com.skype.skype"

    Since the mobilesub upgrade this morning the voipover3g isn't working. Should soon once jay fixes it

    timeline:

    Day 1: Skype released: Crashed upon opening and pressing any field.
    Day 1.5: Jay releases new mobile substrate which locked up voipoverip3g but I could at least log in
    Day 2: Jay releases new version of mobile substrate but now it is back to what happened initially and it Crashes upon opening and pressing any field.
    Day 3: This morning an upgraded voippverip3g package is ready and so I :

    1. uninstalled skype
    2. downloaded new VoiPoverip3g
    3. reinstalled newest mobile substrate
    4. Turned off Clippy in SBS .

    Let's see if it works.....

    nope. still crashes upon opening and clicking on a field.

    Any help out there would be greatly appreciated.
