    Default Cant access passcode
    Hey guys, my friend downloaded a theme for winterboard and now the passcode keys are so small and at the corner of the screen so she can't even press those buttons.
    So I tried to help but I ran into a few problems:
    1. iFunBox doesn't recognize the iPhone for some reason.. Probably 'cause of iTunes.
    2. My Computer isn't the default computer of the device.
    3. iTunes wont let me do anything because it sais the iPhone is locked with a password.
    4. DiskAid wont let me do anything either, it sais I need the passcode.
    5. She has no SBSettings/adc2add installed.

    The iPhone is an iPhone 4 GSM, running iOS 5.0.1 jailbroken with redsn0w.

    I have no backup for the photos, songs or contact list! So I can not restore. I mean, I can but I rather not to
    thanks.

    Geez, that sucks. So many things that we can't work with here...I was banking on that SBSettings being available lol. Because afc2add isn't installed, that could very well be the issue why you're not able to access root files of the device. It looks like...pretty much a dead end. A restore is likely necessary. You can create a backup of the device, sync everything to iTunes, then do the restore. After restoring, you can still restore from the backup you created and yes the passcode will still exist but all jailbreak data will be erased so the theme won't be active to make this happen again.

    The question is, are there any SHSHs saved for 5.0.1 so that she won't be forced up to 5.1...

    Last resort to get access to the phone again; could you not put it into DFU Mode & restore to last backup, or to factory settings if there is no back-up available.

    I would try that...but that would risk losing everything new..

    Well if you take a look at my suggestion, creating a backup of the current device now would save anything that is not jailbreak material. You can restore to factory then load the newly created backup right on, and all the jb data would be gone so the winterboard theme causing this issue will no longer exist.

    The issue is if SHSHs are saved for 5.0.1 to restore to so she won't have to update to 5.1.
