    Please help me. My iPhone is completely frozen on the Apple screen, and even when I do a restart it stays frozen. Before I restarted, applications were freezing, especially Installer. I am jailbroken. I am trying to avoid a restore considering I have 100+ apps already.

    Well, maybe that's one of the reasons. Loading time....

    EDIT: You should wait a little longer before restarting it again.

    Well.. what firmware are you running? Sorry if its on your sign.

    I think that if you "update" you dont lose your apps...so you can try that.

    Have you tried holding the sleep button and the home button until the screen COMPLETELY turns off?

    Have you tried plugging it into iTunes and seeing what happens? Will your computer see that it is connected?

    Did you use ZiPhone?

    Maybe go into that, and hit the recovery mode, and then hit the normal mode in advanced settings. im NOT SURE if this will cause you to lose all your stuff, so do it at your own risk.


    but at this point, i think you have nothing else to do.

    I had the same problem - I had to restore it. The gears on the Apple screen stopped turning. I couldn't restart it - kept freezing at that screen. I had to do a full restore then reload all of my apps.

    It happened to me after I used Boss Tools to try and move my files to the other partition. I'm running out of space again, and very reluctant to try and use Boss Tools again. I was on a Ziphoned 1.1.4 - this time around I used Pwnage.
