Thread: SummerBoard 1.1.1 Alpha
10-13-2007, 01:33 PM #41
I followed the instructions exactly but whenever I run SMBPrefs it brings up a gray screen that says SummerBoard at the top, but then quits to the SpringBoard. Anybody know what's up?
10-13-2007, 03:43 PM #42
So I attempted to manually load Summerboard 4 times (each with full restores). I put all the files in the correct location (double/triple checked it) and also changed all the numbers in the files added to 0755. Every time I try and activate Summerboard on the springboard, it tries to come up (has summerboard at the top) and then it just crashes.
Anyone have a fix for this?

I just installed it and mine is doing the exact same thing, opens and then crashes back to the iphone home screen a few seconds later

I loved that feature made it feel more like OSX

I had the springpatch installed on mine and then just did the manual install of summerboard without removing springpatch. Works great. I love the side scrolling and having all the theme options of summerboard, best of both worlds with this

for all who are getting the blank summerboard screen and crash:
make sure you set your permissions to:
...when manually copying summerboard files to you iPhone. make sure the permissions for the plist is rw-r--r-- like the install file says
10-15-2007, 02:20 PM #52
do all the plist get rwxr-xr-x, or just the com.apple.SpringBoard.plist? I tried it everyway and nothing.
these are the install instructions
MANUAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Copy the files to your iPhone as follows:
SummerBoard.framework -> /Library/Frameworks/SummerBoard.framework
SMBPrefs.app -> /Applications/SMBPrefs.app
Themes -> /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes
com.apple.SpringBoard.plist -> /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist
Make sure that the plists permissions are as such:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 704 Oct 9 20:00 com.apple.SpringBoard.plist
Reboot iPhone, enjoy!
Elaborate more on my situation, I used the 1touch to jailbreak my phone with 1.1.1. With the installation it installed summerboard, i'm not sure what version. I then proceed to installer, and what I thought was an update, and installed summerbaord from there. That did the ol dock on top of the screen trick so then I tried to manually install the SB alpha version, it fixed the dock but will not launch summerboard.

Because some people feel more impowered to just say that they can do it, and their skill lvl is higher
Anyways.....you on a mac or pc?
In your respective SFTP client make sure owner has read and write access, user has read and group has read access permissions

Pc, and I am using WinSCP to manually install summerboard.

The dash before the first "rw" indicates whether the file listed is a directory or not. The "-" will be a "d" if the current file is a directory.
The "1" in the next column indicates the number of hard links to this file or directory.
"root" is the owner of the file or directory.
"wheel" is the group assigned to the file or directory
"704" is the size of the file or directory
And the date and time indicates the last time the file or directory was modified.
The owner (or user) and group are significant in the fact that the permissions directly reflect this. -rw-r--r--
You can view this in 4 parts.... the first dash (as stated above) indicates that this is a file (not a directory).
The next three characters "rw-" indicate the permissions that the owner (user) has for this file (read/write.... but not execute)
The next three characters "r--" indicate the permissions that anyone belonging to this file's group, "wheel", has (read only)
The last three characters "r--" indicate the permissions that everyone else has that are not the owner or in the owners group.
So that way you can figure out who owns the file, what group they are a part of, and what the permissions are for each category of user.
On the iPhone it's my understanding that all iPhone owners are by default logging into their iPhones as the "root" user which belongs to the "wheel" group. This is based on the fact that there is no user management on the iPhone and every time I've done an ls -la on an iPhone directory all the files seem to come back with the same user and group settings.
