    I think I would just need to uninstall the simple background application. Does anyone know how to uninstall a jailbroken app via the desktop?

    Did u use the activator to set up backgrounder?

    activator? I think that's a different app--I installed simple background app.

    download cydelete in cydia ( just search in cydia ), that way you can remove apps without entering to cydia, when you delete just hold the app and press x

    that doesn't work because simple background doesn't have an app link. It just shows up in the settings menu...

    It's how u control the functions of backgrounder, go in ur main setting and look for the home button it's called activator it gives u choices on how u want to activate BRNDR. I go to anywhere and select home button short hold try that first

    Ya but it's not the backgrounder app it's the simple background app.

    doesnt have an app link? thats from cydia right? im sure you can remove it after you install cydelete

    edit: try hard reset your phone, and install cydelete and then remove the app

    did u try uninstalling it on cydia?

  15. #15
    I can't uninstall via cydia because the of screen problem. I can't tap anything in the lower part of a window.

  16. #16
    how small is this screen? can u provide a screenshot?

    you can try restoring your iphone and rejailbreak it again..

  17. #17
    It makes the screen about an inch long with it in the corner. Well I don't to restore it simply because I'm pretty sure if I just uninstall the simple background app it would work again.

    wait, what you meant is you cant tap one of the menus in cydia? but you install cydelete right?

    try this, open cydia and go to search and type simple background, tap modify and uninstall it, after that reboot your phone

  19. #19
    I can't hit the search button either...I can only access the main page of cydia essentially.

  20. #20
    okay but how did u manage to install cydelet?

    can u access other menus? if so try in sections > tweaks and look for simple background

    if u can access the repository go to modmyi repo and look for simple background
