    Default Planet-iPhone Mods WARNING!!!
    I've been reading a lot of posts and ppl are losing there icons and images when installing mods from this source. I would recommend staying away from them until the problem is resolved.

    If you install an alternate image for your battery it will work but if you try to install a different image over it or uninstall it you'll lose your current image and won't be able to get and image/icon back.

    The error that appears when trying to reinstall or install over is
    "subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1"

    This happened to me when the 3g pwnage came out and i tried to uninstall the IE7. The uninstall went fine but i had no edge icon and when i tried to reinstall i got the error. I didn't learn my lesson and installed a battery image and when i didn't like it i tried to install over it and got the same error.

    Don't let this happen to you unless you don't care... Im pretty sure if you do a restore you'll be back to normal... Im just waiting for a solid version of winpwn to come out and hopefully with installer. Although i do think cydia rocks. Cuz i believe it's not cydia but the source and packaging code there using that's causing the issues

    It's something in Plaent iPhone Mod's script. If you take the same packages and install them manually you can avoid all the trouble

    Customize will take care of this problem, it allows you to revert to your back up..hopefully soon we will have Customize.

    I havent either on my 2G or 3G. So it must just be isolated incidents.

    From reading other threads it seems to be a problem on 3G phones only

    This is happening to my iPod also.

    I just recently upgraded to 2.0 and then ran WinPwn.

    Everything worked just fine. Then I went to install the Chromium keyboard.

    The keyboard installed but it looked funky.

    I uninstalled it and now no keyboard at all. Not even a scrambled image. Nothing.

    Script error when trying to reinstall also.

    This sucks. I can't even get the stock one back on.

    Can somebody please post the stock keyboard files for 2.0?

    This thing is getting hard to use without a keyboard...

    This happened to me on my 2G phone and one of their battery mods. I just installed new battery images manually and it all works now.

    According to the authors website, Cydia will only offer things that are compatible with your firmware version.

    I wish I could install it or get it back the old way manually.

    I can't even find the files. It looks like the keyboard files were restructured in 2.0.

    There are no more keyboard artwork files.

    I know there's at least one keyboard out there cause I'm using it. I think it's called Chromium Keyboard... very nice :-)

    Yea, that's the one that broke. Don't uninstall it! You might end up in the same boat with others like me.

    There's one problem with that, where do you get the images? I can't find any 2.0 keyboard images. Wanna upload yours and help us out?

    Well I broke my battery icon and I replaced it with more modified files, not originals because I was too stupid to take a backup too

    However, seen as my keyboard is stock, if you tell me which file you need I will send it to you.

    /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/Keyboard-Common.artwork ?

    Sure. Maybe the Keyboard-Latin.artwork also?

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    Edit: Nevermind. Cydia just released a critical update to the APT. After I installed the critical update, I retried reinstalling Chromium keyboard and rebooted.

    Now I have a good full Chromium keyboard. Although, I am sure others would appreciate it if you stuck a copy of the stock files in this sites download section.

    I may try going back to a stock keyboard in a little bit, but for now I just like having a keyboard again period!

    hi.i had modified my taskbar battery icon to "digital" one provided by bigboss/modifone on cydia.The file was there under "manage" in cydia for uninstalation but disappeared later from manage folder as well as the "instal/changes"folder and couldnot back up to the original.As i understand, the file contents should be in system/library/core services/springboard app(may be iam wrong!) and iam unaware of file contents for deleting manually via ssh.pls help.
