    Exclamation [WARNING] Spring Board Crash After Installing Too Many Applications

    Problem:
    Spring Board Crash after you install some 3rd party applications

    Symptoms:
    - After you install too many apps; in my case 76, the spring board fails to refresh
    - All you will get is the Apple Logo and the spinning wheel
    - The iphone actually works but it can't load the UI
    - After a short while the iPhone might restart and you will find yourself in a loop

    Solution:
    - SSH to your iPhone
    - Go to /Applications
    - Delete Some 3rd Party Apps (the number depends on how many Apps you have installed)
    - Reboot

    Precautions:
    Don't install too many Apps, in my case 76 Apps were enough to trigger the problem
    That's 4 Home Screens and a half full of applications

    **Hope this will help some to avoid such problem**
    ** For the record, that was not my iPhone...I was helping a friend out and though to spread the word**

    *shakes head*


    download about 70 progrmas on your PC/Mac and see how it runs.. obviously like crap..
    i am amazed sometimes that this is not common sense to everone....

    you do not have to instll every 3rd party app as it comes out

    ppl msut realise these drain the iphones already limited resources...

    a guy brings his phone for me to fix, same thing, 80 apps on it, he doent even know what he was installing, he was jsut installing to show off "look how many apps i have on my iphone", why would you possibly need 70+ apps??? i ask, he replies with a blank stare, almost as blank as the screen on his phone//

    whats worse is that allot/most/all apps install preferences and sub folders and dirs, symlinks etc all over the palce, now you have those files scattered all over your system..
