    After I updated to 1.1.2 with the touch free jailbreak I cannot find any many apps that were there before I updated. NES is not there as well. I have community resources installed and I had no problems jailbreaking my update. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Summerboard has gone AWOL today... It was there yesterday. Must be an issue with it.

    I hadn't noticed the NES app had gone too.

    The reason the NES and Summerboard are not there is that, for them to be installed using the installer.app, the two programs have to be "allowed" to run on the new firmware.

    Because you can't download it, you can't set those privileges (so wait for the developers too)

    You can install summerboard manually though. I have not tried NES but will help anyone that needs it.

    Download summerboard here: http://www.nullriver.com/~zigzag/SummerBoard.zip

    Ok... Install SSH on your phone, and log into it using an SFTP client. (I use CyberDuck)

    Read carefully now, and copy the files to your iPhone from the Summerboard folder as follows:

    SummerBoard.framework -> /Library/Frameworks/SummerBoard.framework

    SMBPrefs.app -> /Applications/SMBPrefs.app

    Themes -> /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes

    com.apple.SpringBoard.plist -> /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    Make sure that the plists permissions are as such:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 704 Oct 9 20:00 com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    you now have summerboard prefs. have fun!

    The problem with that theory is that Summerboard for 1.1.2 was downloadable from installer.app last night and they pulled it. It also was updated for 1.1.2 at the same time that installer.app was released, so it's already compatible.

    Also installer.app lists many apps that aren't 1.1.2 compatible (some for ipod touch only as well, but there are definately 1.1.1 only apps eg. 'Tiff Export Fix', 'Oktoprep' etc.) - the version check happens when you install it.. eg. last week when I first jailbroke installing summerboard brought up a popup saying I needed 1.1.1. The apps have vanished completely from the install list, which they wouldn't have done unless there was a good reason. It'll be back soon I guess.

    I have also noticed that the different applications check compatibility upon installing. But when I said that they removed it from installer.app, I meant that the individual developers had to take the programs off of the installer.app repository. Not that the installer.app program removed it for incompatibility.

    They had to change the allowances due to it not working correctly on the 1.1.2 update last night.

    At least this is what I gathered from both LoringStudios blogs and http://appleiphoneschool.com

    Are you familiar with SFTP? on a PC, there is a free ftp/sftp program called coreFTP lite.

    you can get it for free at downloads.com

    Still lost

    Nope I have never done any hacking or anything and I don't know a lot about computer programming and such. I just want to be able to change the springboard on my iPhone if you could maybe walk me through from the beginning that would be very helpful. I have my phone unlocked and i have the installer app on there. What do I do from there.

    Same issue here. Just jailbroke a 1.1.2 iPhone. The only app I really care about is missing - Summerboard!

    I'm hoping it will appear with the next "apps refresh"...

    Summerboard allows for scrolling. None of the themes are working. Also, doesn't allow for my own wallpaper to work. Not sure why.....But it definitely scrolls left to right!

    After I installed summerboard, my international icon in seetings>general tab is gone...how weird, I reupdated and went through the process again because the icon was missing and thought I missed something, but right when I update summerboard and restart, its gone.
