    Default Masked Text Fields (passwords, etc..)

    Ok, I am fairly new to the Jailbreak process. I have an activated iPhone on the AT&T network. I decided to Jailbreak my phone last weekend and used QuickPwn to do so. I was very pleased with my results, except I noticed that my password fields never showed a dot anymore for masking each letter, instead it showed what looked like to be two blank letters. So, as I typed I would see nothing in the field, whereas before I would see one dot for each letter. I thought maybe I messed something up, so I restored my phone, verified everything was working fine, re-jailbroke the phone and it wasn't working again. Any suggestions or help would be great. Thanks.

    So, I guess from everyones silence that I am the only one that has seen this. Just got to a website or program that requires a password, and type in the password, normally you would see dots for each letter, now that I have jailbroken I see spaces (blanks). Is this normal??

    No it's not normal, I just tested it by logging out and in on this site. I use a 2.2 jb.
    I see the letters then as I type the next letter the previous one turned into a dot, in the end they are all dots.

    To fix dfu restore to 2.2 activate with iTunes jailbreak with quickpwn setup as new phone and sync.
    This should put it all back to normal. If you had previously updated instead of dfu restore or restored from a backup it may have caused this problem.

    Good luck

    Always sync fresh do not use backups.

    I just tried this site and it does correctly. A few places I know it is messing up for me is when entering my password on the app store and entering a key or passphrase in for wireless. Also last time I jailbroke I followed your exact instructions. I guess I will live with it for now.
