    Default Dangerous iphone apps
    hi everyone

    this thread is all about the dangerous apps of iphone
    i installed the screenshots app two days ago and today when i turned on my iphone it stucked on apples logo and after 2min the screen was showing black and white horizontal lines with two floating buttons of screenshot app
    i searched the internet and i found that many of us were having this problem just because of this stupid app so i turned my iphone to recovery mode and then did the whole firmware again and unbricked and jailbroke it again

    if any of you had problem with any other app of iphone plz let everybody know so they won't get in trouble

    and if u find something useful in this forum don't forget to hit the thanks button

    Anything in BETA (Customize 2.0, vWallpaper....)

    I have Costomize 2.0, summerboard and Kate all installed. Probly about once every 2-3 months I tweak something and get the SWOD and have to restore. Too many apps manipulating the appearance can have code conflicts.

    I think this is a good idea to kinna make a list of all applications that have known issue - and make it sticky in the forums.

    PYSL works 100% for me. Make sure you install from iclarified tho.

    pysl works (apart from some minor program bugs, but no iPhone crashes yet)
    kate works too and almost to perfection (although i think it's the reason pysl crashes sometimes)

    I installed Navizon a few days ago and strange things started to happen.

    First off, when I rebooted my phone, near the end of the boot sequence, the screen would go off, back on, off and then on again before starting.

    No real problems, but not right thats for sure. I could live with it.

    Then a day later I started to find my screen unresponsive. I could scroll through the screens and start a program, but after that, nothing worked except my home button. Also, when I pressed my power button, the phone would turn off, but I could still see a very dim picture of my lock screen. Basically the phone would not turn off completely.

    I rebooted numerous times and nothing worked. I finally SSHed into my phone, installed Respring and then ran that. I have SysInfo already installed and tired to respring through that, but the phone would only allow me to launch the program. After that, the screen was un-responsive. After resrping I was able to use the touch screen enough so that I could un-install Navizon. Reboot after and the start up screen is normal (no flickering) and there is no more image when I lock my phone.

    Default Handwriting recognition tool
    I installed the handwriting recognition tool, didn't like it and tried uninstalling it. the only thing that it did, it made my iphone go to SWOD!!!and as far as i've been looking into it, it's happened to a lot of people, so be careful with that program.

    Kate works fine for me and has since the first Caterpillar days. Have not had a single problem with it and love the program. I have heard issues about it with other programs like Dock, but I am running Customize, Kate and a host of others with no problems.
