    Some things by certain 3rd Party communities are buggy in 1.1.1. This happened to me as well when I was downloading a theme for iSwitcher. The only thing to do is to restore and jailbreak again. I don't think it is a virus. The two just don't play well.

    Thanks For The Advices Guys, And No It Was Not Me Posting That On Anoteher Site, When I Restore It, Will It Go To The First Version, Or The New 1.1?

    had the same problem, wanted to install the same theme from iswitcher...tried hard reset several times to no avail...ended up restoring to factory setting then went the whole process of jailbreaking, activating, unlocking....the whole nine yard.
    Good Luck.

    i just got in the same boat as you. But i installed ants and when i ran it the screen froze in the settings of the ants app. Unlocked 1.0.2 iphone. I did the home button and power button to reset now all i get is the apple at start up and nothing else. Any help would b appreciated

    ...just happened to me - spent about 3hrs trying to get it to the restore state in itunes - finally did it by holding both sleep button and home and then letting go of the sleep after 10seconds - this worked and I now have to install all my apps again (also lost all my ToDos as they do not back-up).

    and yeah, it definatly is that source.

    -good luck.
