    thanks to "KATE" i ended up having to put my phone in dfu mode and restore it. the program made my sound stop working and i know for sure it was that program cus it was the first program i got from installer as i had just restored my phone prior to thsi incident. i don't know how many people are aware of this bug but atleast for me not even uninstalling it restored my sound so i think the word should be spread before more people have to restore their perfectly personalized i phones!

    Man, what a horrible application! I had problems after installing Kate. I only wish that I had researched it before installing and am now only registering after fixing my effed up phone.

    After I installed Kate and tried entering the program, it kept crashing so that I couldn't make any choices as to what little aspects of it I wanted active (and also, due to this, I couldn't uninstall it correctly). Then, I tried going into Installer to remove it and was then prompted with an error saying that something was wrong with "root:wheel" but that Installer would still try to function, just maybe not properly. Well, when I would try to uninstall it from Installer, I got the main script execution failure. But, after about 10 minutes, my Kate icon disappeared!

    I couldn't get into anything to try and uninstall it. To make matters worse, Kate screwed my ssh access. I had ssh on and active but when I would try to ssh into my phone, my connections kept getting rejected! I was so angry. Finally, I decided that if I wanted my functionality back, I would HAVE to restore (which I did today). I am still loading my music back to my iPhone as we speak.

    So, I was angry and decided to email "Rip Dev". I've pasted it below. It is quite funny!

    Hello,



    If you want uninstall Kate, you must:

    1. Open Kate.app and delete all modules

    2. Uninstall Kate.app via Installer



    And we don't touch SSH.

    My reply:

    Hi,

    You're not understanding me. The Kate.app is no longer on my springboard. It disappeared. Kate.app then caused Installer.app to go crazy and not work (something about root:wheel, keep in mind that it has been working great for months until Kate was installed yesterday). Kate.app kept crashing before it disappeared so I can uncheck anything anyway.

    Also, your program messed something up so I can't even SSH into my phone anymore. It's pointless at this time, as now I have to restore.

    Thanks for making a horribly SHITTY program. I won't be installing any of your JUNK.

    Nate

    Yet another reply:

    Hello,



    You can tell a lot of bad words. But we don't touch Installer or SSH.

    If you have access via SSH run this 2 commands:

    chmod a+s /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    chown root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    And my final message to them:

    Hi,

    Your program messed up my SSH access, regardless of whether or not you "touch" it. It is either a problem with your program or your testing processes.

    Thank you. Don't bother emailing again. I've now restored and gotten rid of the nuisance of "Kate".

    JUNK.

    what the hell are you talking about , kate works perfectly fine on my iphone ... you just install every stupid app that you see , your phone is full of "shyt" !
    then you expect kate to work .

    its better you dont use kate you dont deserve this amazing app .

    ok I fixed that the easy way
    just connect to ibrickr browse to applications/kate
    and delete all the files inside it. don't worry about keeping the empty folder.
    then restart your phone and everything back to normal.

    kate is harmless on its own... If u install only that app, there should be no prob, but if u install other apps on top of that then there is bound 2 be a prob. That's for certain . I mean its impossible to keep only one app installed since there are a handful of interesting apps coming almost daily. For ppl who haven't had any problem with it its becuz they don't install every app they c on installer n if some of them do they just install the ones that don't interfere with kate. For example "no sound after kate" then this person must have installed "volume boost" or any sound mod prior the failure. If ssh don't work no more it must be becuz kate modified the master passwd or set it to the original. Simple.. Stay away from kate or any of its synonyms (there is a reason why they keep changing its name ) if u plan to fill ur Fon with other goodies.
