    Default customize/freeboard problem
    i installed the new customize with freeboard, turn on the freeboard, restarted, now i get a apple logo with a never ending loading circle thingy on the screen.

    I did try plugging the phone into the computer and itunes and iphonebrowser both recognize it.

    how can i get it working properly again? please advice!

    download iphonebrowser, then save the plist file from your phone into your computer, edit the file to have the proper string. delete the plist file from your phone and drag the new edited plist file into that same folder, restart phone.

    its the latest addition to customize.

    Customize has released an update that has a SummerBoard replacement built in called “FreeBoard”. If you enable this feature, it will disable SummerBoard. At this point, you probably do *not* want to do this. And enabling FreeBoard could cause your phone to stop booting.

    The iPhone has about an 80 app limit. This includes webclips. Once you hit this limit, your phone won’t boot. It just spins and reboots over and over again. SummerBoard patches this bug (bug by Apple, fix by SummerBoard). If you enable FreeBoard feature within Customize, you will lose SummerBoard’s fix. If you have more than 80 apps, you will not be able to boot.

    If you are already in this situation and need to fix the problem without restoring, you can do so by using SSH/SCP or something like iPhoneBrowser to remove folders in /Applications until the phone boots. Then you can reinstall the apps you had to delete. Don’t remove anything critical. Easiest fix is to use winscp or such and make a temp folder called “Temp” in /Applications. Then just drag enough folders from /Applications into /Applications/Temp until the count is around 75. Then reboot the phone, disable freeboard, make sure SummerBoard is enabled, and move all the folders from /Applications/Temp back to just /Applications.

    Thanks BOSS

    Ok i know it was just implemented by customize, but what exactly are its features. I know it allows for the 5 icon dock, but what else? WHat makes it different from summerboard?

    if your phone isn't "jailbroken" you can't be running customize.

    your phone has to be jailbroken to be able to install apps.

    if iphone browser says your phone isn't jailbroken, it means you don't have the ibricker patch installed. you'll need to ssh probably.

    Now iphonebrowser says it's jailbroken and I removed a lot of folder in /applications and the phone is still stuck. I ended up just "jailbreaking" it with iLiberty. Thanks for the help.
