    Default error message in iTunes after ipb upload
    The customization worked wonderfully but after I uploaded my ipb file and tried to sync my information with iTunes, I got this error message. I've tried restoring and starting from scratch three times. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like you didn't follow the last bit of the tutorial:

    Now type
    ./iPhoneInterface
    and return, followed by
    cd /System/Library/Lockdown
    rmdir Services.plist
    putfile Services.plist
    exit
    Each of those lines has a Return after it. Those last 5 steps are CRUCIAL. You MUST do them, or you're gonna have some lame issues, as in not being able to sync with iTunes anymore. Careful of the capitals again, as well. Notice Services is capitalized.

    I am having trouble with the permissions. I modified the firmware version to 1.0.3 in the installipb.pl file, but im still denied... Cant figure out what I am doing wrong to not allow permissions

    c-ts-computer:~/phonedmg Magoo$ ./installipb.pl metal_blue.ipb
    -bash: ./installipb.pl: Permission denied

    Any ideas?

    Read the guide, it tells you how to correctly set the permissions.

    try downloading a new version of jailbreak. you are having an issue breaking into your phone, not necessarily with the ipb installer.

    I have tried this several time and still nothing.
    I just got this message as well.
    Changes I made. AppTapp installed, and newest version of iTunes.

    Is there a way to use my .ipb files to customize my background and icons with out using the ./jailbreak?

    if not then where is the "new" version of jailbreak
