Thread: I'm Starting to get Worried

    Default I'm Starting to get Worried
    I'm new to this and have only had my iphone (1.1.4) jailbroken for a month now but i think i really screwed up on something.
    I downloaded the buff skin on to my dialer than when i didn't like it i just went back to cydia to remove it. It said it was gone but when i went to make a call my keypad is completely black. When i click the black screen the only ones that will pop up are 1, 2, and #. My contacts and voicemail still look the same and work but the keypad is gone. So i went back to cydia to download some kinda other skin thinkin it might comeback with another skin put on but now when i try to download ANYTHING i get the error "subprocess pre-installation script returnded error exit status 1". I don't know if the problem i have is with cydia or the buff program but I am at a dead end and really need help.

    Just do a restore and don't mess with stupid themes.

    with a restore I'll lose everything?

    Does it matter if you lose anything ?

    You have no dialer



    You're native iphone data (contacts, cal, notes, etc) will remain when iTunes does a backup before it restores. You will lose all installer or cydia apps but that shouldn't be a problem.

    yeah ..sync to itunes ..before doing the restore .now ,after u restore jailbreak the phone again..and then resync back to itunes ..it will ask u to set up as a new iphone or restore a backup from previous ..sync..choose to restore backup ..and in 30 min or so u will get ur working phone back..with ur contacts,notes,etc..but u will lose the ..apps ..but u can download that later anytime ..having a working phone is a better deal

    ur are correct ajl, all he needs is the original artwork file for the dialer for 1.1.4. if i were u, i'd jus install one of them digital dialers from installer to overwrite not having one.
    1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

    waitin on my white iphone 4

    Which files in what directory needs to be overwritten ?
    Im having the same exact problem on JB 2.0
    I installed a battery theme, didnt like it so initially i tried to just install another but it givign me a error which to me indicated it wouldnt overwrite the existing files.. so i uninstalled the battery theme and installed another but it gave me error.

    Now when i plug in the charge instead of getting the battery theme installed i just get a black window in its place and itunes reports an error...

    Source Error... Subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Major credit to the Programmers.

    same thing happened to me with a dialer application, I deleted it and it went blank, then i got the same error when i tired to reinstall via cydia.

    I fixed the problem with ssh and installed the black dialer that you can download through this site. just put the files in /Applications/MobilePhone.app folder and all will be well

    Someone with the know-how should make some Cydia packages for the stock images for everything. I have seen quite a few people with these problems when installing some of the themed images from Cydia - that would give us an easy way to go back. I for one am scared to use any of those theme customizers for the time being.... They all seem pretty unstable still. I'll give it a month.
