Thread: pulling the trigger-iphone virus?

  1. #1
    Default pulling the trigger-iphone virus?
    thats what im about to do, ive been going round and round with this dam iphone and about had it-bout to make it a real brick

    after that freakin update with spicy and rc1 screwing up my iphone things havent been the same


    first mail and smsd wont work

    found solution for smsd today, but mail still failing to work

    then i noticed my iphone getting warm and the battery dying way to fast

    used sysinfo to check process's and to my luck i keep finding extra services in there that wont kill, all i get is "alert -failed"

    few of the process's are:

    sh id:6065 u:root p:/var/root s:/bin/sh
    sshd id:6065 u:root p:/var/root s:/bin/sh
    cron id:19 u:root p:/var/root s:/bin/sh

    and another mdnsresponder that randomly pops up and goes away, i know this process is for the phone to operate but theres another one that comes up also with some weird letters at the responder part, which leads me to think i got a bad bug


    also when i try and make a call i get a notification telling me i cannot use edge data during a call-but last time i checked i wasnt on the net and i have nothing that would be on it, i checked and double checked so this is only adding to the suspicion theres a bad source/program

    the system still works but just literally lags, and only recently started doing this after i did a system restore and installed everything like i had before besides spicys update....except i did install that mobile bar, which im thinking might have had something to do with it, not sure :P

    biggest problem is i cant kill those process's and i dont know how to remove them, do i have to do another freakin system restore just to TRY and make things work or anyone else got a clue whats going on

    i think you really need a fresh restore... if you said that this was just after you restore then maybe it was just a bad restore or something. try to restore again and when tunes ask to restore backup, dont!

    Umm, restore again like ice man said, and don't restore backup...
    Then only install apps the first time you need them or know are safe.

    If you could could you please post all the apps you have installed in Insaller and anything else you have transferred to your phone. Will help us understand all of this.
    I'm tipping this isn't because of Spicy's updates... He's a very trusted dev...

    (i know everyone says dont use ziphone but thats what i have and thats what ive used since last year, dont think this would have been the problem, are iliberty and other programs just as easy to use......really didnt read about them as i already had a hack source, but thinking of changing if its just as easy as ziphone :P )

    oh and btw yes spicy is very good at what he does, however when he released rc1 i updated to it first thing in the morning when it first came out and turned on freeboard and 5 icon dock, had wifi off and ssh off......and guess what, system locked up and only way to fix was to ssh into phone and fix a couple lines of code....so hes still good, he just wasnt expecting to hear of sucha lame scenario

    and thats all that i have on there currently, the only other system changes i made were other.artwork.....replaced it with my xp theme i created-i know it works fine and is not causing the problem

    and moved the application dir from / to private/var/mobile/apps (using correct sylinking and etc....otherwise no program would work...lol)

    garf did that to my battery, they say that problem was fixed but i tried it again and it did the same thing so i dunno could be worth a shot... another thing that helps is when you done using an app hold the home button until it escapes the app this keeps the app from still running in the background (just what i've heard)
    if this post help click the thanks

    Umm not quite what's going on... He has rouge processes that appear to be running when they shouldn't be... Nothing to do with applications staying open.
    -I still think a quick restore and don't restore your back up should fix your problem there. Then use iLiberty to Jailbreak & etc.

    I'm with killroy007, you may just have WAY to many apps. Have you move all your apps to the second partition? I noticed that before I moved mine I appeared to loose performance and the phone would heat up more even when in stand-by because of the extra resources needed to run the springboard alone.
    -So once you have done your restore, install Cydia (apptapp.saurik.com -> make sure its from the source given and not a payload!) and it will automatically move your apps to the larger partition, allowing for more processing room. And only install app as you need then or use them.

    Good luck

    well its morning time for me, :P

    wow glad to get some responses, but just gotta say, thats not as many apps as i had once before, before the screw up i had a hella lot more, so i know its not the apps that i was using before

    but when i just restored, i did add a few new things, like mobile bard, new skin for notes, and i think one other thing, thats why i was suspecting sucha flaw

    most of the apps listed you can see what they are for, its like standard stuff, like sysinfo, bossprefs, video recorder, etc......although i may have a few to many games, lol, but never heard that about garf, i wont install it this time just to see if theres any difference

    also going to use iliberty for the first time, you guys have saved another iphone user :P

    ill post back progress as it unfolds in the next few hours

    I JUST WANNA GIVE YOU ALL A HUG, lol......sorry i didnt write back sooner i went hiking yesterday :P


    but anyways, all went well, i used iliberty to crack the phone and synced my contacts and now good to go.

    but before all that i did do a restore and tried to restore the phone back to th way it was, and i guess its a bad copy because got the same error when it came to my mail, but the phone didnt lag.....so i did a full system restore twice :P

    so instead of restoring the whole phone, i just did contacts and ill do everything else by hand(mail, move apps cir....etc)
