Discuss [Freeboard][Solved] Installed with Customize > phone won't boot at the Free Toolchain Software (Cydia App's) - Hackint0sh.org; well looks like this is a big problem... i had this problem and with out ...
well looks like this is a big problem... i had this problem and with out looking it up i decided to just restore (i just restored a little bit ago to clear up some space so it was no problem) so anyway. i restored becuase i didnt feel like dealing with it. Iphone worked and all. decided just to go right ahead and rejailbreak it with iliberty. and guess what. iphone will not boot at all. never even installed anything off installer. therefore i have 0 apps not even close to 80. and it still wont boot. damn customize messed up my phone...
o and the phone is also not being recognized by my computer now... however if i put the phone in recovery mode it is. please i am really in trouble if i cant fix this soon

1. Disabled Summerboard with Customize
2. Installed Customize+Freeboard with Installer
3. Restarted phone
4. Enabled Freeboard and 5 dock icons
5. Restarted phone
6. Uninstalled Summerboard
7. Installed Summerboard
8. Restarted phone
9. Enabled Summerboard
Now when I enabled summerboard again Freeboard automaticly disabled, but the 5 icon on dock stayed enabled.
Now moving on, I found out that for some reason all this killed my Norweigen keyboard with the special charecters "æ,ø,å". So I had to reinstall that aswell.
Anyway hope this helps.
PS: I do not have over 74 apps installed.
still not working for me. Tried removing applications, tried, editing my .plist, tried replacing my .plist, tried jailbreak+activate. Not sure what to do next.
I really wish people wouldnt release Applications that were FOR SURE going to mess up someones phone.
And to the poster above me, congrats, weve already stated that you need MORE then 70+ apps to make this problem happen, anyone under wont be affected.
hehe just give up and start fresh again. I lost kate which kind of sucks, but it was hacked anyhow so I can't complain too much. I do miss facelift though as icon labels looked 200x better with the small background behind the lettering. You could actually read what stuff was regardless of your wallpaper.

If you do decide to wait it out, good luck and post how you got it fixed here if you end up figuring it out elsewhere.
mt v2.0.0RC1 was working perfect, updated stupidly to v2.0.0RC1Fix (to see if it would fix vWallpaper and some other small isuues) and viol, had to restore twice, cause i backed up my phone before resotreing (while the spinning wheel of death was there) and guess what itunes backed up my springboard rpeferences and loaded the corrupted springboard and viola wheel of death after restore, so i had to do it again..
makes me look forward to the appstore and apps that habe been tested and approved by apple.
i am off to paly some gears of war and forget about iphones for a few days, the blog will live..
Well I asked about the app limitation on the first page of this thread, but no response. My question is pretty much answered after seven pages lol. Good thing I held off installing this.
It seems that when spicychicken writes his hook into the springboard.plist, he deletes all the other hooks - you'll loose skrewcommon, iblacklist, etc. The hooks that these apps wrote gets deleted.
After installing the problem customize, cythia doesnt work properly and stays on downloading packages.
Is there a way of fixing this problem without restoring as i dont want to go through that process again as im happy with my setup.
I selected the freeboard 5 icon but doesnt work so i go back to customize and its deactivated even though i selected freeboard on, whats that about?
if anybody's still interested, this is how i solved my freeboard spinning ring of death problem:
edit your com.apple.SpringBoard.plist file so it looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
the original com.apple.SpringBoard.plist from the download link won't work since it doesn't call SummerBoard.dylib, which i gather is the file with the fix for the >80 app bug.
tell me if it works for you too.
another Customize update 2.0.0 RC 1.3 and its suppose to fix the Summerboard problem to now let Freeboard and Summerboard run together.
