ive had this happen a couple if times and eventually it's restarted.
It's quite scary!
It completely crashes and sticks at the pineapple until eventually it resets.

I've had that now a couple of times
pwn'ed phone, installed apps through cydia and app-store and everything worked fine
then after a while - usually when installing an app through cydia - it "crashes" where it says return to cydia and after a hard reset its stuck booting at the Pineapple screen.
I've waited for at least 15 min but it wont come up.
Only solution was to restore the firmware through iTunes and restore mode again
any ideas ?

exactly the same here.
next time, try hard resetting and wait (plug the phone to you computer). if nothing happens hardreset again. wait. try hard reset again and wait.
if any of those times itunes sees the phone dont hard reset again. fyi: the pineapple is still there, even if itunes sees the phone. but in my case when itunes sees the phone it's on it's way back...
(sorry i'm in a hurry, i hope you understand my instructions)
waiting period: up to 15 min each time.
for me, that usually brings it back.

And this is why custom boot logos are a a bad idea =)
Can't return it to Apple noww, Can ya?

Except he meant that when they power it up to check it out, it is now quite obvious that is has been hacked and in breach of the TOA.
Meaning they will not help you at all, but laugh instead.

sorry, i was a bit stoned when i wrote the post.
the thing is; if it is stuck on the pineapple...
step 1: put phone in dock
step 2: hold power+home until it restart
step 3: wait (up to 10 min)
repeat the steps until the phone shows up in itunes...it may still have the pineapple even itunes found it. if this is the case, wait for a few minutes then the lock screen should come up. if it doesn't start again at step1.
there's not much else to do, except you feel like restoring the phone and do all over again to then be stuck at the logo again.
i hope this helps...
btw: i had success with that on 2.0 and 2.0.1 on a 1st gen 8 gb iphone....(pwnd)

it happened to me too. i pwned the iphone 3g with 2.0.1 and after that i install couple apps from appstore and restarted the iphone and it froze on me i taught i needed to wait a minute or two but it keeped on the pineapple logo and nothing changed. i dont know what was the problem or the cause anyone ?? firmware bug or what hope fully dev team will fix it !!

are all of you unlocked or just jailbroken?

I think i figured out what the problem is. I sume that we all had to much on the iPhone, less than 1 GB because I tried Cydia with an empty iPhone and it worked without any problems. I also increased the partition to 1GB. Until now everything runs without prblems. How many memory have you left before Cydia crashed on your iPhone and how big is your storage? The same questions to these people whicht have no problems.

You said something about memory and everything? What did you do with the partion and did it fix the problems? HELP WOULD BE AMAZING it seems you finally figured this out .

I have installed everything before I synced the iPhone (empty phone memory) without any problems. During creating the custom firmware (expert mode) you can adjust the size of the partition using for apps. How much memory you have left before the iPhone starts to stuck in the boot screen, 1-2 GB? I'm not sure what exactly the problem is, less memory or the partition. Will try it out one day, or is here somebody who had the same problems (stucking in bootscreen) with a bigger partition? If that is really the problem, perhaps the creator of Cydia can fix that?
