    hi guys
    just jb my iphone 3gs a few days ago using greenpoison. all worked ok no probs at all. so i was changing my sms tones using iphone explorer and worked great. then i decided to change the slider txt and it worked fine but then i noticed my sms and phone icons where gone. i did a reboot and then more icons were gone! i had to restore my phone and reload from last back up. has anyone else had this problem before. it was my first jb so i dont know if this sort of thing is common? is greenpoison ok to use?
    also my phone has the current updates and im using the current itunes. any info on why this happened would be great. thanks guys :)

    I had that happen back in December on 4.1 Jailbroken with Limerain, so I don't think it's a GP problem, just something that happens once in a while. I've had to restore my bone stock iPhone before too due to it messing up. Only thing you can do in that case is restore and re-jailbreak.

    Yes it's worth it (to me). I upgraded to 4.2.1 for about three days before abandoning it to go back to Jailbreakable 4.0.1. Not having the ability to quick reply to a text is just ludicrous frankly.

    yeh i do love it tho im only really using it to mod my phone at the moment and i totally enjoy that aspect of jb but if its going to make my phone too unstable and crash it all the time maybe its just not worth it. was the diff between this jb and the last one? are u using GP??
    thanks
