    Default Iphone stuck on Apple logo, happened twice. Winterboard was problem, now somthng else

    My 3G got stuck last night because of stupid winterboard problem, i couldnt even ssh or anything and had to restore through itunes, worked all night on it and fixed it. I did not download winterboard again, today i restarted the phone and it got stuck again. I am going to restore again as i am not going to lose much. Anybody know a permanent fix for this?

    What versions are you running? (i.e. iPhone OS, computer OS)

    What method are you using to jailbreak? (i.e. redsn0w or custom firmware)

    What other apps from Cydia have you installed?

    Reply in this thread in case I'm not here maybe someone else can pick up the slack for me...

    First time it happened to me, was yesterday when i chose an option called "VM static wallpaper" in winterboard. I had to restore from itunes and jailbreak and unlock again. Today it happened again, after installing cydia only and restarting the phone it froze again, then i restored again from itunes and setup the iphone as "setup as a new phone" I did not restore from back up. Downloaded installous from cydia and restarted the phone and bam froze again. I dont know what is going on with my phone...

    Im thinking there must be a glitch stuck in my phone from the first time it happened, is there a way to do a clean install like windows? erase the hdd and then install?

    When you are using redsn0w to jailbreak are you selecting the 3.0 firmware? Redsn0w is not compatible with 3.0.1 so when you first start the program you have to select the 3.0 firmware... if you don't have it on your computer already I know you can D/L it from quickpwn.com or google it.

    If you've done that already, one other thing might be that Vista is interfering somehow. I'm not sure if this can be done in Vista but see if there is a way to have redsn0w run in "XP comapatability mode" and try it again. I run XP on my desktop and jailbroke my 3G with redsn0w and had an issue when I updated Cydia and the phone would not reboot - I had to do a force restore and start completely from scratch.

    To do that, you have to hold the power button for 5 seconds, then press the home button without releasing the power button for 10 seconds, then release the power button and keep pressing the home button until the DFU mode screen shows up - you might want to google that as well to make sure I got it right... I've had a long day today...

    If you do it that way, run redsn0w PRIOR to resyncing any media... I think the force restore/ DFU mode acts as a method of erasing and reinitializing the internal drive - not quite sure of that theory but it sounds good anyhow.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi
    Also I don't know if you are or not, but after DFU restoring don't recover from an itunes backup (start the phone from new) because if the problem is in the backup files you'll just be putting it back on the phone every time you do.

    Hey guys, yes I am selecting 3.0 software in redsn0w whether I pit 3.0.1 or 3.0 through iTunes. I am now back on 3.0 firmware but all these times it has frozen up with any software.

    Yes I am not restoring from the back up in iTunes after jaulbreaking it. I am setting it up as a new iPhone. This time it's running fine, I have only downloaded GVMobile and winterboard so far. Only selecting option "user wallpaper" option in winterboard. I also tried downloading volume boost from cydia and it didn't download cydia just crashed. And when I was downloading openssh package it would freeze after selecting install. Then the second time I tried openssh installed.

    If it freezes again then I can try to jailbreak it on my mac but I hve snow leopard on it.
