    Default [Summerboard] Warning on 1.1.4

    WARNING!!!
    I have been hacking my iPhone since I got it a week after it became available in the US. I recently upgraded to 1.1.4 with ZiPhone ( I must say this was a breeze), however soon after I did, I started downloading my favorite apps. I downloaded summer board, and then another app. This is when the problem begun. My iPhone has gotten in to a tight loop where 5 seconds after it comes up, it gives me the "Edit Home Screen" pop up and after it is dismissed, it reloads again. It does this constantly at 5 seconds intervals. I have attempted to unload apps with the installer app. but 5 seconds is not long enough. I have tried to move icons from the first screen to the second but again it seems to timeout before the transaction is complete. I can after much trying turn it off but I cannot reset it. Holding the home and the sleep buttons do not have the intended effect. I have even popped out the simm card in hopes that this would help with the reset but it just boots up to the same sequence. I have attempted accessing with ssh but again there is not enough time in the 5 seconds for a connection to be established. My guess, ( and it is just that a guess) is that there is contention between summerboard and the internal screen management software for 1.1.4. At the moment I am dead on the water, I have googled but cannot see anyone else having the same problem. Any Ideas as to what to try next are welcome. I am even considering exploring the dock connector to see if I can force a reset via a short. I just wanted to warn those who are about to experiment with a jailbroken 1.1.4 that this problem is lurking on the background and to be careful with adding summerboard ( again I cannot claim that this is the cause of the problem) but I did not see the issue until I added it.

    Thanks

    Ok, this is a follow up. I managed ( with the help of a couple of members ) to reset the phone. I thought the problem was related to summerboard. It happened again and this time summerboard was not involved. I have since recovered but wanted to record the sequence of event that seemed to trigger the problem.

    My problem occurred when all of the front panel was almost filled with icons. In fact when the last entry was filled in by the installer app. Upon adding one more app and soft rebooting the iPhone it got into its loop. I have since jailbroken the iPhone again and this time I move all icons from the first panel to alternate panels before adding new apps and this seems to be working well so far.
    Thanks.


    Actually this happened again and it did not matter what the arrangement of the icons in the first panel were nor weather summerboard was installed. I think that there is a basic problem with the 1.1.4 firmware and hacked apps. I am reverting to 1.1.3

    Runing 1.1.4 myself and newest summerboard, no problem.
    My guess is that you perhaps lack BSD subsystem ?

    The BSD was installed. So was the newest ssh. I was running for a while before I installed summerboard.

    Yes, but unfortunately 5 second reboots prevent itunes or ziPhone from establishing the connection.

    Damn summerboard fucked it good, you could try holding the power button while its on to try and have it crash and stay there or you could plug it to iTunes and hope that it sees it and hit restore

    I have turn the iphone off then placed it on the cradle, this normally awakens the iPhone, as it does in my case. I then ( while the iPhone is on the cradle ) hold down the power button until I can slide the power off, but in either case I get the same result. I just comes up in the tight 5 second loop. So far I am SOL.

    had the same problem. Put it in recovery mode (or dfu) (hold down poweroff and home button together, wait til the screen is black. then after 3-4 seconds release the power button, but still hold home button until itunes say you there's a phone in recovery mode. restore it with 1.1.4 and use iplus for unlock. (iplus has the summerboard fix in the payload.
