I had a similar problem, Installer wouldn't start properly. I just used SFTP to delete several apps, then restarted and everything was fine. It's a good idea to go back to Installer and uninstall the apps you deleted manually...

You should type this instead.
Hi, just want to ask:

To mount the image on Windows, just use Transmac or MacDrive software applications.

I also had the hang on the Apple Logo/Endless reboot issue.
One day after restoring my iPhone again with v1.1.4, cracking with (iLiberty+), installing lots of applications (using Categories because i read about the 72..80 applications limitation), my iPhone crashed again!
It just would not boot up and stay on the Apple-Logo (vibrating 2 times, 3 times etc), and than reboot after about 6 minutes.
(The only difference is that it now did not show the turning-progression icon/star.)
So, the Categories program did get rid of lots of icons on the SpringBoard, but it seemed it was not the needed solution!
After some google-ing and trying some stuff i finally found the cause and the solution.
SSH-ing into the iPhone, i just moved (the symbolink) /Applications to /App and my phone booted with an 100% empty SpringBoard (except all WebApps).
After that i found with some trial and error that the problem is releated with the number of files/applications/directories in /Applications (or /var/Applications if moved).
* ssh/winSCP into your iPhone
* (move /App back to /Applications if you did this)
* I made a temporary directory in /Applications and moved my last installed applications in it.
* made sure the number of files are below 80 (ls|wc -l)
* "reboot" and all was ok!
Later i reread about the 80-application limitation and found the Solution to installing more Apps
* Installed SummerBoard 2.3
* Rebooted, and made sure SummerBoard was running
* moved the application(directorie)s back from my temporary-directory to /Applications
* rebooted again (to check if all is ok)
I now have 85 applications/files in /Application and all works fine. I did not even have to re-install any application.
Later i found out that my problem allready was listed by sling3 ((http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21110)
He describes the situation very well, and gives a solution. Only this solution on fixing it is a lot easier, and
no deleting/reinstalling of any applications!
