    I just jailbroke my 2g phone for the first time yesterday. And I was loving it until I couldn't make a phone call today. I push phone and it comes up but on the dialer, the green button doesn't say call and none of the words are below the icons (contacts, vmail, etc.) after about 3 seconds it crashes. I did a search on this problem and found that kate causes this problem. I deleted Kate and rebooted the phone, still not working. Like I said I am new to this and don't always understand the lingo. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

    Sounds like a restore is in order. When your phone is back, don't install Kate. :)

    I had the same problem. Start from scratch and re-do it but don't install Installer or Kate.

    Hey thanks for the replies but I've fixed it. :) In my day and a half of being jailbroken I've realized that installer sucks and I just went ahead and removed everything from installer and it then got killSB from cydia and restarted the springboard and it started to work :D I'm starting to kick myself for not doing this sooner, it's a lot of fun. My next challenge is getting nes roms onto the phone. thanks for the help.

    Just so you know, Kate cannot just be simply deleted like other apps....
