ok so i have just PAID for sbrotator and as soon as i rotate my phone the icons rotate,but then it just resprings into safe mode (literally instantly) i have turned off infiniboard in settings cause i thought it might be that... could it be categoriesSB?
please help me if you can or post if you are having a similiar problem!

i think there are still some "bugs" with sbrotator since it just can out. I am sure there will be an update soon (just like with infiniboard). I would dump categoriesSB if I were you. It sounds like your springboard is being overloaded.

The only thing that caused it to crash for me was having only 1 page of icons, I had to move 1 icon to the second page and that solved it.
I am using CategoriesSB, so thats not causing a crash, but it doesnt work well in landscape mode.So long, and thanks for all the fish

None of my pictures rotate, but it's never crashed on me.

Yeh o understand there will b bugs but it doesn't work at all
I would dump categoriessb but I love it too much, I use my own 1 page theme so I need it really...
Looks like I'll have to wait for an update...

Hey I found that when SBRotator is enabled and you change a themem in Winterboard it crashes to safe mode loops, so go into settings and disable SBRotator then change the theme and re-enable SBRotator and you shouldn't get safe mode crashes. At least thats what I have found to be a problem on my device. Hope this helps some people. Oh and ever since Winterboard updated I've been having problems with safe mode crashes there must be some kind of conflict with the new Winterboard settings and I'm figuring SBRotator, but I need to test more to be sure.

I found that when you have a 5 icon dock and a 4x4 layout, it will cause your phone to crash to safe mode. Simply remove 1 icon from the dock and everything works great.

I haven't had a problem with fiveicondock.

I use the stock icon layout, I never installed iconoclasm or anything.

thats weird. I just tried and it works. HMMMM.... I guess I just needed to reboot. That would probably fix a lot of issues people are having

Maybe you dont have enough free memory. That's most likely what is causing the crash. Look at SBsettings, what is your average free memory?
This tweak takes a lot!
When i have mail and safira along with ipod backgrounded, it puts me to safe mode everytime i try to rotate. It needs a lot of free mem

I finally figured it out. iBlank was causing the issue.

How is sbrotator advertised as "compatible" with iconoclasm. I have been trying to make a landscape layout (7 icons across 3 rows, plus a seven icon dock) but every time i go to landscape i get a single column of 4 icons, all the rest of the app icons are gone. even the stock layouts that come with iconoclasm dont work right. I am not saying that i still dont friggin love this tweak, just disapointed to see that iconoclasm is basicly useless. with all the bugs reported for this, we wont see an update for a month

SBRotator just told me that my copy was illegal...
DAMN WHY THE **** DO THEY IMBED SUCH A CRAPPY DRM!!!
This really makes my angry, even if I don't need this tweek!

Here is the most optitimized way
1. Have atleast 2 pages of icons
2. Don't use Category
3. Don't use iBlank
4. Don't use Infinidock
5. Use shrink at 100% and SBR at 70%/80%
6. Try the Epic Pro theme, it goes really well
7. 5 Icon dock works smooth
By the way, use the one from BeYouriPhone, that doesn't prompt any illegal message.

Cheers to all,
Paid for this app when it came out, never had it to work: always crashed in safemode.
I simply deleted all of my iblank icons and it worked firstshot.
I am running a 3GS alongside OS 3.1. Installed SB substrates are :
1- infinidock (not all icons show up. Had 10, now down to 4)
2- Infiniboard (no problem so far, works the same)
3- SBSettings (no problem so far, works the same)
4- Glaskart theme (no problem so far, works the same)
5- Chrome interface ( no problem)
6- Shrink (no problem)
7- battery %, lockinfo full but not themed
8- running average of 140Mb of free memory
9- battery does not seem to drain faster
10- Backgrounding still works
11- will confirm incall capability, answering call behaviour an so forth later on.
Cheers all, hope this help

Regardless, I'm patient and sure this bug will be addressed. SBRotator is a neat concept!
