    It probably wasn't a virus. Rock messed up a lot of phones the other day, and there are fixes posted for it that don't require restore. Guess it's too late now though.

    There is a way, but it doesn't work for all 3G[S]'s. Here are the basics Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) But like I said, doesn't work for all. Give it a shot; if it works awesome, if not no harm.

    iBoot version has nothing to do with being able to downgrade.

    I seem to have had the same problem phone gave me the same warning of no memory. But I managed to fix it self and I deleted a couple of apps and everything was back to normal. I put I on charge last night and woke up to my phoned turned off??? I turned it on and now, all my apps are gone, cydia won't open rock open when it feels like it, i open up my emails and it crashes, tryed count less reboot witch give me diffenerent results, tryed respringing and tryed messing about with SBsettings. How can I get my mobile back to normal? On top of that my piece off **** laptop has packed In and won't turn on. Good day for me.

    Its came out this once before it'll hopefully come out of it again. Then I'll delete rock.

    How can I get to safe mode Ive tryed throught SBsettings and it does work. Any ideas?

    Solved the problem.

    GUIs is for peeps that have lost the cracked apps like me after the whe rock issue. Open up *********.

    Set intall method - clean
    iTunes sync - on
    debug log - on

    and hey presto my apps all came back.
    Hope it work for everyone else.
