    So I used jailbreakme and installed bitesms. Doesn't work and put my phone in an endless boot mode.

    no idea how to get out of it as I'm not near my macbook. ugh!

    I recently figured this out, as well. The phone just keeps going to the Apple icon and restarting. I wonder if other apps are having these issues, too. I'll hold off on JB'ing my iPhone for now.

    As far as I know, you're going to have to get access to your computer. Plug in the iPhone, enter DFU mode, and recover it. Hopefully you recently backed up your phone. This is the only thing that has worked for me.

    Good luck.

    I'm about to try it.

    Were you previously jailbroken with something else and had BiteSMS already and then jailbroke again (for whatever reason) and started having problems?

    I hope it works for you, but I've tried it two times already and had no luck. Let us know what happens.

    For me, the JB went smoothly, as did the install of biteSMS. As soon as you try sending a text, the whole phone crashes.

    Oh okay, I figure the error was upon install. My SIM is currently in my iPhone 4 which was jailbroken with Redsn0w yesterday, and I really don't feel like going through the hassle of switching it out to my 3Gs that I jailbroke with jbme.com earlier today. Hopefully they get this figured out though.

    Please make sure you let the devs at bite know this. The more info they have, the sooner a fix can be released.

    The phone works after DFU and then recovery. However, after two failed attempts at getting biteSMS and Jailbreakme to work, I am holding off and leaving the phone the way it is.

    Confirmed :( installed BiteSMS 30 mins after I JBed my i4 on 4.3.3 and sending an SMS sent me in to an endless bootloop. TU and playing around w/ it did nothing so DFU and Restore was the only option. Posted in their forum - http://forums.bitesms.com/forums/1/topics/4118

    Had the same problem, I was able to boot in safe mode though and delete bitesms. It's a bummer because it's one of the few jailbreak apps I was missing since I got rid of the original jb, hmmmph

    for the record, bitesms has given me no problems. jb my iphone 4 for the first time today, so maybe a past installation of jb caused the issue? no idea to be honest though, i'm completely new at this and happily jailbroken :D

    You have no service after restoring your iPhone? How long has it been?

    this is a problem with bitesms and jailbreakme.com's ios 4.3.3 jailbreak, not all 4.3.3 jailbreaking.

    And I just installed bitesms again to see that is the problem, sure enough it is. This time after the respring it went immediately into endless boot mode, where as the first time it took several hours before it started doing that. Luckily, if you just wait it out for like 10-15 minutes it will eventually boot in safe mode and you can just delete the app and your phone is fine (if you don't want to enter dfu mode and restore)

    So since I used jailbreakme, is it just a matter of time before my phone crashes and biteSMS doesn't work anymore?
