    Default NoMoreSpaceBarBadVirusOnIPhone!!!
    my 16 gig 2G iphone is almost useless ... my space bar in SMS and SAFARI will not work after catching a virus!!

    I would like to WARN people of this!!! it may happen to you!!!
    I am not sure what exactly was installed form Cydia or installer that caused this malfunction as my buddy was using my iphone when it happened.. could have been a sms app called PYSL or any number of fancy new keyboards from customize or some other random act of god.. what i do know is its not a hardware/screen issue as all other apps work fine with the keyboard as well as i am able to launch apps from the dock... so im sure my iphone screen is perfect and there is no glitch in the touch layer of the screen..

    IF YOU HAVE ANY CLUE HOW TO FIX OR WHAT CAUSED THIS PLEASE POST!

    I have updated up to 2.1 and back down to 1.0
    DFU restored to 2.1 ,1.1.4 2.0 ect.
    installed and un-installed all apps i have ever used from cydia and installer.
    basicly tryed all i know how to wipe any virus/glitch from the iphone and reload a clean firmware but nothing has worked.. I have also replace stock keyboard-common.artwork again nothing fixed my problem!

    Thanks for the help in advance and BEWARETHISDOESNOTHAPPENTOYOU!!!!NOSPACEBARSUCKS!!!




    SO IT TURNS OUT IT WAS A HARDWARE ISSUE APPLE REPLACED NO PROBLEMS!! THANKS FOR THE HELP MMI USERS!

    i bet psyl did it. It screw up my phone in the past. Did you try to factory restore it than use custom firmware?

    Ok... you might try building a custom firmware and uncheck the box for "disable partition wipe" which will do a a complete reformat of the drive rather than an install over what's there.

    Make sure you set up as "New Phone" after restoring to 2.1 I guarantee that you are restoring from back up which is just reloading your problem every time.

    Most likely you or your buddy installed a custom keyboard that was incomplete.

    I would not be so quick to call simple user error viruses. Viruses are a whole different story then what you experiencing.

    is your phone under warentee still? If so as a LAST resort you could "fry" it so it can even be turned on and bring it in to apple for a new one. To do that turn on the phone take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and wipe the bottom ports. Since appple will not be able to turn it on they will give you a new one. You need to also not take no for an answer in the stores

    ok, so your title is ridiculously funny because of the no space , so I was assuming that you was typing from the phone but, then your body text is perfectly spaced until your last statement, so now I think your just being funny with those two parts...

    You said you replaced the Keyboard-Common.artwork with a stock file. But, did you also replace the Keyboard-Latin.artwork? You have to replace both of those.

    Give me details. What firmware is the phone currently on? Is it jailbroken? Does the keyboard work in landscape mode? Post a screenshot of the keyboard.
    Open the ipod application and click where the keyboard would be, does that part of the screen work?
