    Default Kate App Freeze Need Help Immedietly
    Hi. Thanks for reading this. I know that this has been asked a lot before but my circumstances are different from what i have read. I have been researching for about and hour but still haven't found the answer that i was looking for. Well here we go. I downloaded the 3rd party app kate and it made all of my apps freeze. I would reset it but i am on t-mobile and i am not sure what it would do. and secondly i have a mac so those windows programs don't work. If anyone could help it would be much appriciated


    thanks!!!!!!!!

    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.

    Guess you didnt search deep and far enough... but n e ways... all you have to do is respring your sprinboard one of two ways...

    SSH into your device and enter:

    /bin/launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    /bin/launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    OR....

    Install KillBoard onto your device, leave it on the springboard in not in an app like categories or bossprefs, launch killboard, your springboard will reboot... BAM! your back in play.

    You can install the application using something like iPhoneBrowser, but you won't be able to set permissions, your pretty much at point of a restore, and follow this info here... This is what I did...

    How I have a my device working flawleslly:

    Restored
    1.1.4 Jailbroken ZiPhone
    Installed OpenSSh
    Installed Cydia and updated all under changes tab
    Installed Fake BSD Subsystem
    Installed SUID LIB Fix
    Installed SymbolicLinkMaker
    Installed Jiggy Runtime
    Installed KillBoard (to respring when touchscreen is unresponsive in apps)
    Installed Taskbar Notifier
    Installed Kate (Formely known as Caterpillar
    Installed SummberBoard
    Installed Customize 2.0
    Rebooted and applied settings for Kate
    Runs Flawless with just about every most used applications installed

    *** I have had no issues since the very first release of this app doing these same install steps everytime I restored ***
