iphone 3g firmware 2.2

It first started after the phone froze when i was in sbsettings changing the battery icon to numeric. when this happened i held the power button at the top and the phone rebooted

i read some older post and uninstalled five icon dock and i also uninstalled kate (which i had for a week and never used, but this hasnt happened till now)

still having the same problem. so since other post had just blamed kate for this i reinstalled five icon dock and its still messing up

any suggestions would be helpful

i know how to ssh my phone if that is need just would need to know where to go
