Thread: Winterboard MyPad5 theme results in disabled iPhone

    Exclamation Winterboard MyPad5 theme results in disabled iPhone
    Dear forum members,

    I installed winterboard on my sim-unlocked and jailbroken iPhone4 and choose, among others, the MyPad5 theme. Then I had to respring the dasboard after which a very neat unlock-screen appeared that I had never seen before. The numbers to tab were small and located in the lower left corner. Very nice, but my passcode was not recognized!

    After a couple of "Wrong Password" messages my iPhone is now disabled. When I restore to earlier backups, the SAME SCREEN keeps appearing (even though Winterboard was not on the device at the time of the previous backup???) and even though I surely enter the correct passcode, it says "wrong passcode"??

    The iPhone does not connect through WiFi so I cannot ssh to the device to remove the themes manually.

    Please take note of this behaviour, I must not be the only one with this véry nasty problem.


    iPhone4 jailbroken and sim-unlocked
    baseband v1.59.00

    Finally I had to do a complete restore from another ipsw and then restore from a backup before I installed Winterboard.
    I learned a lot but wasted my day ;(

    My advice: if you are in my situation (iPhone 4 v4.1, baseband v1.59.00 - jailbroken and sim-unlocked) do NOT install Winterboard and select the MyPad5 theme because you will get a new screen where to put your passcode and it will NOT recognize your passcode and you are scr#wed!
