    Default [Boot issue] SpringBoards problem?

    One more time, my iphone 2g fw2.1 freezes on boot (just the apple logo for a while and then reboots, in a loop).
    I read a lot on the web, and tried many things. SSH is still open and the iphone connects to my home wlan automatically on each startup, so at least I can browse the fs.
    Now, I really don't know what else to do. I think the problem is starting SpringBoard, wright? There is no such process after boot (ps -e should listed it).
    Any ideas? Maybe replacing SpringBoard.app with a fresh copy?
    Hope anyone can help me with this annoying issue, thanks!

    Have you tried to edit this file?

    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    Probably your device has a library being loaded by the SB wich is not completely polite yet.
    Try to remove each library insertion and reboot the device to check when it will be back again.
    Since it wonīt boot in safe mode, i think you donīt have mobile substrate installed. If you have it installed, surely itīs not any library that it loads, but one that is directly inserted on the plist i mentioned.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm inspecting that file for the first time, but I don't see anything strange. I've attached the file if you'd like to check it.
    There's an entry referencing MobileSubstrate, and once again first time I heard about it.

    I'll keep researching on this, please if you figured out what's wrong I'll really apreciate it.

    After renaming or removing the mobilewatchdog, the automatic reboot happends every 10mins (as mentioned in that post, because of the hardware watchdog). All the time, the apple logo is the only visible on the screen

    Thanks anyway, I hope there's a solution out there

    Have you used installer or installed kate at any time? I had trouble with kate after enabling themes with it and had to delete the kate settings in springboard app settings to get it to boot again (needless to say winterboard is the better way to go for this). Also how many apps did you have installed before this started happening?

    I've never installed anything called kate (just on my desktop kde ).
    But I've used Installer, yes. The funny thing is, this issue happened after upgrading two apps with Cydia, not Installer. I don't remember exactly which were they, but I think one was related to showing the date on the notification bar (using winterboar) and the other one was related to videos or something.
    After Cydia upgraded the apps and I closed it, I could't start any other application (they all crashed right after attempting to run them). Finally, I decide to reboot and here I am.

    Here is my /private/var/stash/Applications.s4IKrB:
    ------------
    AppStore.app/ Maps.app/ MyTris.app/ Terminal.app/
    BookReader.app/ MobileAddressBook.app/ NES.app/ Vibrus.app/
    BossPrefs.app/ MobileCal.app/ NemusSync.app/ Weather.app/
    Buzzer.app/ MobileMail.app/ Pool.app/ Web.app/
    Calculator.app/ MobileMusicPlayer.app/ Preferences.app/ Whirlwind21.app/
    Cycorder.app/ MobileNotes.app/ QGSettings.app/ WifiToggle.app/
    Cydia.app/ MobilePhone.app/ RailWater.app/ WinterBoard.app/
    DemoApp.app/ MobileSMS.app/ ScummVM.app/ YouTube.app/
    Docs.app/ MobileSafari.app/ Searcher.app/ dTunes.app/
    FieldTest.app/ MobileSlideShow.app/ Snapture.app/ iK-Tictactoe.app/
    FileViewer.app/ MobileStore.app/ StatusNotifier.app/ mplayer.app/
    Installer.app/ MobileTimer.app/ Stocks.app/ rps.app/
    Macman.app/ MxTube.app/ StumblerPlus.app/
    --------------
    There are 51 apps, doesn't seem too many.

    And this is the content of com.apple.springboard.plist on LaunchDaemons:
    -----------

    Oh, i see the damn MiVTones, wich i personally know that does not work properly.
    Please, do this:

    grab the com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    Remove this string manually using a simple text editor.

    :/Library/dyModLoader/dyModLoader.dylib (including the : at the beginning)

    Save that file and then overwrite the existing one on the iPhone (on /System/Library/LaunchDaemons folder)

    Reboot then tell us MiVTones sucks

    And the winner is...
    Finally!! I couldn't remember the name of the damned app!! I did an "apt-get remove --purge com.ifonetec.mivtones" to get rid of it, and then remove the string you suggested from the daemons.
    Everything is back to normal, thanks a lot!!!
