    To remove Freeze (Not just hide it with SBsettings), install CyDelete from Cydia. Close Cydia then hold your finger on "Freeze" until it wiggles like the iPhone native apps. Click the "X" in the corner and Freeze will be deleted.

    hey. Now i have jailbreak using Purplera1n and my phone can't be call through as well as for SMS. ;( HELP ;(

  8. #168
    Ok, so I jailbroke using purplera1n, and everything (except the sms wallpaper) seemed to work fine. Only problem, now the phone wont sync to itunes. When I did try to sync, it jacked all my apps from the app store...they were listed as being transfered to itunes, but then disappeared. The phone then freaked out. Showing only the apple logo on a dark startup screen or nothing at all, till i managed to connect in recovery mode. I recovered, and used a backup, but did NOT re-break the phone. Now I STILL CANT SYNC, even with the stock software. I plan to re-JB the phone, but was wondering if anyone has had this problem or a solution? I'm addicted to the mods, and using this stock bs is killing me. Does the phone hold residual code from past jailbreaks? (i've used pwnage, sn0w, zip, in the past and usually restore from backup...) If so...how would I delete it? Thanks,

    Just make sure you set the phone up as a new phone after you restore and not from a backup and you should be fine. I dont see this as a problem caused by purplera1n....just restore, set up as new, purplera1n, walla!

    Sync it with "Address Book" on your Mac when you sync... They'll all be transferred to the computer then.

    ^Agreed
    You will always have the ability to sync your Contacts, iCal, Pictures, Music, and Apps when setting the phone up as new...you really only lose your settings, SMS, Mail, recent calls etc..

    I have to say that I had to restore twice unfortunately thanks to iTypefastr and battery drainage issues from restoring from backup. Both times I decided to jailbreak with redsn0w and I don't have any issues. Only thing I can't do is theme my keyboard.

    iPhone 3GS, Apps closing abruptly --- Redsn0w Jailbreak

    Has anyone had any problems with opening apps? Whenever I try to open from settings Cylay, wallpaper etc, etc it closes abruptly and it takes me back to the homescreen! That is driving me crazy... The only recently apps I downloaded from Cydia other than themes was StatusNotifier and Kate. Which I deleted both thinking that could be the problem. But it hasn't help... So if any one knows of a tweak or what I need to do... Please let me know. I'm also having problems with some cydia downloads, I get a missmatch error. I truly would hate having to restore and jailbreak again.


    Unable to open from settings:
    Wallpaper
    Store
    Cylay
    Nike + iPod

    IMHO Purplera1n is the fastest and easiest jailbreak method I've ever used. I havent noticed anything not working yet. Push works fine as well.

    Use Redsn0w to Jailbreak the phone. Then add the repo for Ultrasn0w in cydia http:// repo666.ultrasn0w.com, that is a zero in snow not and o.
    Then search fro ultrasn0w and install it. That will unlock the phone.
