12-11-2008, 05:41 AM #1Please help! Strange "auto-"wiggeling - dock icons
Please help with a very annoying Problem:
I have a 2g 8GB, jailbreaked with Quickpwn. And a 3g 16GB, jailbreaked via pwnageTool. Both on 2.2
Since 2.1 and still at 2.2, the problem with both iPhones is:
Very often if i want to open an app from the dock and touch it (so only mail,phone,safari and ipod) all the icons starts jigelling or wiggling like they do if a icon is touched for a few seconds, instead of opening the dock application !
This bug is realy annoying - it doesn´t happen every time. It seems that it happens when the iPhone – Processor is working hard, often after the phone has been running for a while.
Never shortly after a Reboot.
Often when other things seem to be running slowly such as switching to the SMS, Contacts or Notes apps.
I use winterboard,categories,mxtube,tunewiki,pockettouch ,biteSMS,mobileCast,CopierciN –
It seem´s that it has something to do with winterboard. If i remove winterboard it never happened – but that´s not a real solution
I postet this Problem bevor - and there were some posts with the same problem:
“This happens to me at least twice a day. I click on an application, like the iPod, for example. Instead of opening the application, the icons start wiggling, as though I had held the icon down for a few seconds and wanted to move stuff around.
It started only happening with 2.1. Maybe it's some jailbroken app, but I can't figure out what is causing it.
Anyone else having this happen? If so, what fixed it?”
Any ideas, solutions?

mine does the same thing too. im on 2.1. you might just try to reboot or turn off your your phone. i think its because like you say the processor is working too hard or your phone is using too much RAM. it really doesnt bother me that much.

It's a 2X thing, enjoy. One of Apple's "undocumented features".

My hope is, that someone out there got the same problem and found a solution.
It is realy disturbing. Yesterday i removed winterboard again - and the "auto-wiggeling" was gone. So i think it realy has something to do with winterboard ...?

Winterboard uses up a lot of your phones system resources. Because of the heavy processor/ram usage caused by Winterboard, it creates a sort of lag on your phone. So when you touch your screen, it knows you are doing it, but takes longer to register the input. Once it registers, it's like you've been touching your screen for a few seconds. Hence the wiggles.

I'm not sure actually. That is strange. When I had the problem, it wasn't just dock icons that it happened with.

you know what would be great? A dev coming up with a BOSSPREF that would turn of the "move the icons/wiggling" feature.
Kinda like a "lock desktop" feature.
Ooo, you know, that's a good idea I think i will post that in the "request" area.Herp a derp a derp a doooo!

I had the same problem too. so I deleted some of my appstore apps (I had 42) and turned off some of my themes in Winterboard, and now everything works great.
