    OK so i installed summer board 2.11 from installer.app. it says it is active, however it messed my menu up.
    The dock moves to the top of the screen, over the top of the safari/youtube etc icons, plus the themes dont seem to change!!

    anyone any ideas. i have tried uninstalling it a few times, but to no avail!

    i have an ipod touch 1.1.1

    Get it from here. You have to manually install it.

    I've got the same trouble, dock up and no theme applyed, i removed summerboard to fix this sticky dock on top of screen. It was too impossible to access to the Music/Pictures/video either.

    I will try manually as precognized

    Can't get the manual install to work for me, either. Click on "SMBPrefs" on the dock; it hangs, and then crashes.

    Inside the package, there an INSTALL file which contain the following :

    Code:
    ****************************************************************************
    NOTE: You do not need to patch the SpringBoard if you are using SummerBoard.
    ****************************************************************************
    
    !!! THE TWO STEPS BELOW ARE NOT REQUIRED TO INSTALL SUMMERBOARD !!!
    
    If you want to undo the previous SpringBoard patch, move:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/SpringBoard.original -> /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/SpringBoard
    
    Then run:
    chmod +x /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/SpringBoard
    
    
    ********************************
    MANUAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
    ********************************
    
    Copy the files to your iPhone 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
    
    Reboot iPhone, enjoy!
