"So you buy the 6 months and say you forget about it and bam you just paid another 20 bucks. That's why I bought the unlimited version"
Dude! Soo funney you say that, cuz I am one of those people that hate automatic renewals for that same reason, cuz I will probably forget! So yesterday when I read that, about it renewing automatically, I was like ugh! I KNOW i will forget, so I instantly got on my Microsoft outlook calendar to remind me in 6 months, to either cancel a bit before, or if I am still satisfied with it, just leave it alone and let in renew! heheheh
But, yeah, thinking about it, shoot, I should have just done the same as you, and not worry about it! Oh! Well, maybe they will add somemore cool things to it, that would be neat!Stay Sexy, Sweet, and Wonderful!

I finally received a reply from RipDev about how to fully uninstall Caterpillar. Here's what they had to say:
Full uninstall process:
1. Remove all checks in Caterpillar
2. Reboot the phone
3. Uninstall from Installer app
4. If RipDev Settings still present delete CaterpillarPrefs.bundle folder in /var/root/Library/RiPDev/PreferenceBundles/
from browser or use command line% rm -rf /var/root/Library/RiPDev/PreferenceBundles/CaterpillarPrefs.bundle
I finally had figure out how to remove it all without their assistance, and my phone is now really back to normal. I will probably never install anything from these folks again. I don't like hacks that modify the phone on such a low level, as there are too many possibilities for conflicts.
Just my 2 cents.

Yep! I went ahead and purchased the unlimited, and they are refunding my money for the 6 month package I purchased yesterday! They also told me how to fix the flashing screen when i would first turn my phone on, and worked like a charm!
Boy they are super prompt in handling questions and concerns, I swear, I emailed them, and like 5 minutes later, no kidding, they emailed back with a solution! Now that's what I like!
So iblade, that cute little icon, what is it for? That is the one that is on our phones right? Sorry, I'm a little confused, where can we use that at? Anyways, thanks!Stay Sexy, Sweet, and Wonderful!

do you have either dock.app or summerboard.app installed? i finally got in touch with ripdev and they told me that those two apps cause problems for the phone and that's why we've encountered the touch problem upon entering an app. i told him that i beg to differ. i've never ever had any problems with either app until i installed caterpillar, so i feel that the problem reside more on caterpillar's end rather than dock and/or summerboard. i was able to get a refund. it's too bad as i did like the app...
also, the icon iblade made is for your springboard, if you wanted to change the original caterpillar icon to that one, you can

Hey guys I am using caterpillar and have also summerboard installed and use my theme and have no problems whatsoever. There are quite a few people bashing on caterpillar, but in my case it just works. Yes you can use the icon with summerboard or if you don't have summerboard installed rename it to icon.png and put it in the caterpillar.app folder in the applications directory and respring. Glad you like it ucim2cute.Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.

Yeah, I agree with you, cuz I DO have both! This is what they told me to do for the flashing problem, but, I did notice also, that the touch reponse was alot better after I removed this. So maybe if ya wann try this, maybe it will work?? I had felt, like the touch was kinda dragging maybe, or like, a little slow?? But, after I did this, it fixed the flashing problem, and the touch just felt right on target,like it had been before I had installed this app.
Remove the appropriate file in /Library/LaunchDaemons (named com.natetrue.dock.plist and ...screenshot.plist) and reboot your phone.
Oh! ok, i do like the little caterpillar that iblade made, better than just the head on what we have on the phone, heheh I just don't know how to change icons, still learning alot of stuff
But, yeah, i think the problem is on their side!
Ok, iblade just read what ya just posted on changing the little icon, gonna try it! Cross your fingers, cuz i always manage to screw things up! hahaha

Don't be afraid, if you need any help just ask. I wanted to say that I do use also screenshot and taskbar notifier with no problems. I put up a screenshot of my screen.Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.
03-10-2008, 02:38 PM #51
Thanks iblade! Yeah, me too, i also use screenshot and taskbar notifier with no problem. Hey cool homescreen! Well, i hope the guys at Caterpillar, fix whatever is weong so more people can enjoy the app, is sucks when we like an app,and wanna use it, but it causes all sorts of problems. Well, especially this one, since they charge?? The free ones, well, they are free, so why should we complain right?
Thanks agian, PrissieStay Sexy, Sweet, and Wonderful!
03-10-2008, 02:45 PM #52
Your most welcome Prissie. I just remembered I do use customizer too, to edit the springboard strings. Icon mods like custom dialer or different color sms bubbles, I do however change manually.
It just doesn't end poof works also.

Any of you on 1.1.4?
I am still utterly baffled that noone else has figured out how to do the 5 icon dock....
03-11-2008, 06:24 AM #54
I'm on 114, and Caterpillar works well. I emailed them about them suggesting that we un-install Summerboard to get the full 'facelift' effect'. I wanted to know if their app takes care of the 80 app limit, like the new Summerboard 3.2 does, as this is the only reason I'm using Summerboard. They promptly replied that it currently doesn't, but that the next minor update would be out shortly, and that this functionality will be built-in. Yeah!
03-11-2008, 06:41 AM #55
That is good news, so far they are behind their product I like it. I am still using summerboard 3.0 and have no problems. I did notice something today, as I have also fontswap installed whatever font I choose for Lock Clock font in fontswap I can apply the same font as system font with caterpillar by choosing Lock Clock in the settings.
But please be careful I do it on 1.1.3 and it works it might not work for others.Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.

I want to use this badly but I hate the $45 price tag and I'm tired of having to restore, plus I'm worried about future compatability.
03-11-2008, 01:32 PM #57
regarding the issue with the touch being unresponsive, i have narrowed this on my iphone to the 1.1 uCalendar. if i respring, uncheck that, restart - everything works. if i reverse this to install it again, touch is unresponsive until i respring. anyone else see this?

the app looks great only problem is firmware 2.0 comes out in june and obviously the apps we have now aren't gonna be compatible with it and i'm not paying $20 dollars to use this for just 3 months.
03-12-2008, 03:25 AM #60
I aggree with you Lace, however I for one don't think will upgrade to 2.0 and let take apple controll what I can install and what not. I won2t give up my 3.rd party apps for some apps that apple will allow. Especially when no 3.rd party app is allowed to run in the background and only one app at the time can run. But maybe we will get the goods of both worlds if the hacker community come up with a solution. Let's hope for the best.Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.
