    Default Turns to black
    I have been experiencing a problem (once and a while).
    I lets say unlock (sometimes even happens when its in lock mode) I’ll go to ‘SMS to view a text message within a second, or two, the screen will go black.
    I then have to press the home button a few times (I hear a click) for it to return to the home screen.
    After that all is good until it decides to happen again.


    What are you thoughts?
    Thanks

    Mine does weird things like this sometimes where the processes will lag behind or the screen will lock frozen on black for a few seconds. It's normal with modded phones in my opinion.

    I wouldn't mind it if it did not happen about 5 times a day and it always seems like the times I need to put an appointment in without any distractions.

    I hope to find out what, or if there is anything that I can do.
    Thanks

    Best bet is to restore to 1.1.4 and unlock (not using Ziphone...) and don't install any unauthorized apps (that includes Installer.app, BSD subsystem and SSH) and don't restore your settings from iTunes.
    Compare the behavior.
    If you no longer have a problem, then isolate the app by installing it one by one because the problem may be due to an interaction between apps.

    Why don't use ZiPhone?
    I don't know of any other means as to how to unlock activate jailbreak.
    Thanks

    Ok but I am not a programmer so if the instructions are not available or easy to follow then I would be out of luck.

    Hence ZiPhone...
    Plug and play but I am up to try anything as long as I dont waste my phone.

    I have a MAC and PC normally I use my PC to sync.

    I would be willing to receive any advise as well as direction.

    Thank you
