    So this is my first post on the site, unfortunately it's a help question. I promise I'll be more productive later haha.

    Anyways, currently I'm running on and iphone 3gs with the purplera1n jailbreak. Installation went fine, however now every time i download an app from cydia that needs a reboot or respring it tells me that my springboard has crashed upon login and the app doesn't work. So pretty much I have no capabilities whatsoever.

    any help would be appreciated :confused:

    What apps did you install? Winterboard caused this to happen to me, I installed it without knowing (it came packaged with a ringtone pack..). Any more information would be appreciated :)

    well right now I have Fontswap, BossPrefs (this was actually in an attempt to fix the problem), and yes I also have winterboard.

    If I uninstall it, do you think it will help?

    Winterboard isn't working on the 3G S. He's planning to update it soon.

    So, uninstall it.

    Yeah, uninstall winterboard for sure. I think it modifies or installs mobilesubstrate too, so uninstall that via Cydia. I did that and then my phone was working fine afterwards. :)

    Same issue with iPhone going into safemode 3.0 firmware

    My iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 3G, and iPhone also crashes with the sad face on the lock screen when I installed the Lockdown tool from Cydia. When I removed tool, all worked fine. I am running the 3.0 firmware. I hope a fix comes out soon.
