    Default Seriously fucked up my iPhone

    Ok, So I was running out of space on my 1.1.4 iphone, I wanted to install more apps ..So I used BossTool to relocate the fonts and ringtones ..and then nothing would open ..every app started crashing back to the home screen!!

    So I restarted my iphone and got a Spinning wheel of death Luckily I could still backup my stuff in iTunes ..BUT thats where everything went very wrong!!

    See, I had installed Kate 1.3 and used the deja vu font as system default and after relocating the fonts ..My Iphone was fucked!!!

    I restored and activated it again and when I restored the backup from iTunes ..BOOM!! spinning wheel of death again!!

    HELP PLEASE???

    Where is the iphone backup stored? can I manually put the fonts and ringtones back? I can't lose my sms and contacts ..HELP ME PLEASE

    Key thing here is:

    DO NOT RESTORE FROM YOUR BACK-UP!

    As the back up contains the settings for 3rd party applications including "kate" and therefore if you put those settings back you end up causing the same problem.

    Set your phone up as a NEW PHONE... and yes you will lose you SMS's etc... no way around that.
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)
