after installing this package, i had nothing but safe mode, so i am trying to uninstall.

but i cannot

i keep getting the following error when trying to uninstall

"subprocedd pre-removal script
returned error status 127"

dammit....

any idea what the issue is?
do i need to wipe phone back to stock and start all over?

I also had this problem.

I SSH'ed in and removed it manually. Got me out of safe mode but cydia still thinks it's installed and won't let you install the latest version so if you really want the 5 column springboard you will have to restore but if you can do without then just SSH and delete it manually and your phone will be back to normal again.

dont know how to ssh

you can do what i did if you dont mind the rock app and install five column from there which is working by the way, ie: no safe mode crap, and if you dont want it just uninstall... it worked for me

sorry i forgot to mention i installed it from cydia first which is where i was getting safe mode problem.

You are my saviour! I was spending hours in SCPWin trying to manually delete this because after trying to install it through cydia i keep entering safe mode. Installing the app through Rock solved everything :)

Thanks again

I bought Iconoclasm which can do this and more. But for some reason, some of my folders will NOT open when Iconoclasm is running.
