    I figured out a way, nothing mentioned here worked for me, I used WINSCP to ssh into the phone went to kate.app and went into each folder (there is one for each function) and then opened the terminal (Ctl T) and typed ./uninstall.sh one by one then re-booted the phone. went into kate and disabled all the different apps in kit, hit apply, then i went into the installer and unistalled.

    It worked like a charm.

    Teamwork of these applications with Kate can cause problems:

    Dock, Screenshot, SMSNotifier, TaskBar Notifier, and also problems with SummerBoard and Customize are possible.



    In case the touchscreen will not work, try to remove all files from a folder /Library/LaunchDaemons/, except for files: com.openssh.sshd.plist and com.ripdev.remindme.plist



    After that reboot iPhone.



    It can be made by means of program iBrickr on a computer, or with other file browsers for iPhone.







    Uninstall Kate:

    Install Kate in Installer.app, after that open Kate.app, unmark

    checkboxes and press "Apply", after that uninstall from Installer.app.



    Or remove all files and folders:

    /Applications/Caterpillar.app/

    /Library/MobileEnhancer/

    /var/root/Library/RiPInstall/

    /private/var/root/Library/RiPDev/

    /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.ripdev.remindme.plist

    It can be made by means of program iBrickr on a computer, or with other file browsers for iPhone.



    i did the first part and the touch screen came around then i could unistall Kate.. this App Sucks not worth the headache thanx guys

    I was wanting to purchase this program, I used it when it was called Caterpillar. But I don't want to pay for something that's going to do this... I would also like to know what the success rate it too...

    from my blog

    Update: If you are having the spinning wheel of death because of Kate, here is a quick fix:

    1. Use, SSH, WinSCP or FUGU etc, even iBrickr
    2. REMOVE “dock” files from usr/local/bin/dock
    3. Reboot phone
    4. The screen then becomes responsive. Goto KATE, untick all the boxes, and press apply.
    5. Uninstall Kate from installer.
    6. Enjoy phone.

    so if you haven't had problems with the program, but still want to uninstall it, how do you do it?

  15. #73
    Well I can put down those theories that Screenshot apps and Dock mess with it, as I don't have eihter of them and after installing Kate, the same problem happened to me. And even if those applications did cause problems with it, then it's still Kate's fault, as a well designed program (especially since this makes you pay), should be coded well enough to work around existing programs to provide compatibility. To make things worse for Kate, Dock and Screenshot apps came out BEFORE THIS!!


    Trying to figure out a way to uninstall this piece of crap app, normally I wouldn't be so hard on a app, but after reading many posts about people saying it's not Kate's fault, its those programs.....wtf?

    for all who are having problems with kate,follow bezmans instructions and youll have the phone back to normal.I used ibrikr to uninstall dock which gave me touch control back,uninstalled kate from Installer,installed dock back,installed kate one more time so I can open it,UNCHECK all the boxes,QUIT after applying,finally uninstalling kate.Long *** process but worked perfect for me.Good luck all.

    @SilentKILLA, The fact that so many people are having the problem (Even though you and some others don't have a problem running Kate), proves that there's SOMETHING WRONG. It may not affect everyone, but there's still a problem. Dont laugh at others for having something go wrong, when you can't even post the reason why they're having the problem (no, its not dock or capture). Even it was those programs, it's still a compatibility problem.

    Thanks for posting. Some people have tried this, but it sometimes still doesn't work. This will not fix the problem 100% of the time!!! Many people on these forums don't even have Dock installed and are still having the problem. This is what I posted in another thread.

    Anyways, I think I've figured out how to uninstall (For those of you who think they have to restore, or can't seem to uninstall). Download this file:
    http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/...ad.php?t=29898

    (You're going to have to register to download it, only place I could find that has it. You can try http://www.touchrepo.com/Utilities/killBoard.app.zip , but it gave me an error from that.

    Upload that app to /Applications using SSH or WinSCP or w/e, chmod 755 or 777, restart the iphone. Open Killboard once launched, it'll fix your phone temporarily. Use this time to go into Kate and uncheck everything, hit apply. Go back in installer, uninstall Kate. UNINSTALLED! Phone working fine again!

    Man i dont even have dock installed and my touch is unresponsive. This thing is pissing me off. I had a shitload of stuff installed. It will take me a good couple days to get all of it again.
    On top of that i can only use iphonebrowser as my openssh is off.

    Edit and now my phone wont turn on. Im so pissed at this app right now.

    man wtf I too dont have dock installed....cant get anything to work. Even ssh because once i go into settings I cant click anything else! What if I just wait it out. Will it take away everything since its a trial. It stays on for 3 days if im not mistaken right? Does I bricker work the same way as ssh. I didnt use that program in a long time
