    Default 3rd party app "KATE" Freezes touch screen
    I installed this app last night cuz it said it had some nice features and a try me out mode, then you gotta pay for it. it installed okay using the new installer app. You then have to run it and apply the version you want and the options. It has a nice calender and dialer functions. etc.
    the calender works but the touch screen is disabled in every other app on the phone. so now I can't even uninstall it. any suggestions??????????

    this happened to me with an app before. i looked and looked and couldnt find a thing on how to fix it. try SSHing into it and remove it manually. if not you might have to ...




    restore!

    kate is not the problem, dock is

    SSH killboard too your phone too refresh the springboard afterwards you'll be able too launch applications then go too installer and uninstall dock, and you phone won't freeze anymore, you don't have to restore

    Yes people are framing always Kate, here is a screenshoot of my phone running 1.1.3 with customize 2.0 vWallpaper and many more apps. Just don't install the dock app use xLaunch instead. You can't see the background as there is no way of taking a picture of the video playing.

    No dock, SUID library fix and VOILA no problems with Caterpillar/Kate.

    If all were to do reserach, Kate is the new name of Caterpillar, and There have been MANY posts about how to fix this problem, you need killboard installed and remaining somewhere on the springboard, not in a catergory or hidden anywhere, just launch the app and it resprings your device and your good. A little research would have helped you all.

    I Had this same problem... and fixed it. I will work on writing a guide and hopefully post it tomorrow. I must say it involves a lot of ssh and terminal work... obviously mac only at this time.

    Lol this program totally killed my iTouch too, when I tried uninstalling it, it bricked my touch. Was stuck on the apple logo with a loading thing in the middle ontop of the apple, had to restore my iTouch and reinstall 5 pages of apps for one app I didn't even need.

    you dont have to restore, there are ways to uninstall it, however, restoring is the best option. this app is the devil unless you really need the features.

    guess its a lesson to read up on apps and press the 'more info' or search the forums before just installing anything.
