    Default [Installer] Centipede-like creatures on my wife's iPhone

    Good day fellas.

    Last night, I was browsing through the various packages available on the Installer. Suddenly, the phone locked-up. I gave it 3 minutes for it to return but it did not. I tried the on/off button but it won't turn itself off. I turned off the WIFI router because I thought there maybe some bad packets, still the phone is in "hang" mode. I removed my SIM, still it remained in "hang" mode.

    I login it hoping to find some answers on hackintosh.com but my WIFI router is OFF. Stupid!

    After 10 minutes, I decided to tinker around. I pressed the on/off button and the circle button in front. Nope wont work. I pressed them both at the same time for about 10 seconds. This is what happened...

    The phone went blank. I turned it on and the Apple logo came back. It stayed there for about 20 seconds. I turned it off again. Then turned it on.

    On the screen were horizontal colored lines, then it became horizontal black and white lines and then suddenly there were about 7 or 8 centipede like creatures crawling on the screen! Believe me guys here. I aint drunk or stoned or wasted and I aint dickin around.

    The centipede-like creatures then disappeared after 3 seconds and the phone is now ok.

    Anything similar happened to anyone?

    Would appreciate any plausible explanation.

    Cheers!

    my phones done the black/white lines occassionally before. used to do it after every reboot and i've never used ziphone ever. im still on 1.1.2 with the original 1.1.2 softjailbreak method.

    never heard of the centipede thing happen, but the black/white screen and flashing happened plenty of times but eventually stopped out of nowhere lol

    The "centipede" like creatures come from the program Ants. To put it short, some programs clash with each other... (IE. did you download/install Dock, Kate, etc.)

    ZiPhone can cause major problems but this sounds like you have a clash between 2 or more programs. As I said up top though, the "centipede" like creatures is from Ants

    The symptom in the video is pretty easy to guess.

    This phone has been StronZiPhoned and "oh surprise" it went wrong.
    So it restarts on its own broken system and stalls before loading Springboard.

    The Centipede effect is caused by the ants app that is launched before SpringBoard.
    It is not refreshing simply because SpringBoard is not launched.

    No graphical apps are supposed to be launched before Springboard.
    You should not use Ants as it is an old hack and can be the source of graphical glitches.

    By the way, it is still scary for a noob

    Problem has been answered already and i agree with it. I unlocked and jailbraked my iphone with iplus software and it happens on that as well. The only solution i found on my own tinkering is to un-install the Antz program from the iphone. The 1st time it had happened i was like
    But now it is so funny to hear when it happens to someone else :p
