    i also had this problem, after restarting my jailbroken iphone 3g 2.2.1 the dailer didn't want to start anymore.



    removed kate and restarted and still the same problem, besides i didn't even see kate in my springboard.



    then i came to this page and uinstalled Dev rIp and Mobile enhancer and restarted my iphone and was so happy to see its working again.

    thanks for all your suggestions.  My Iphone works again!


    Uninstall Kate, Mobile Enhancer, and Rip Dev. 
    That will fix your dialer freezing up.

If after the jailbreak you can't make dial calls because the phone dialer freezes and goes back to the main menu, try this:

1- Uninstall Kate from Installer: this is what everyone recommends, seems to work for a lot of people but didn't work for me.

2- Then go to Installer again and uninstall these apps:

A) Mobile enhancer
B) RIP DEV preferences

3- Reboot your iPhone.

That's what I did and got my dial pad back again.

I got the same problem and fixed by accident.
go to settings-> RiP Dev,
disable all KATE functions.
then keep going, get into KATE, disable it.

good luck

If you've installed Ripdev, go to
Settings
Ripdev (appears after Photos in the list)
RiP Dev Products
Licenses - Kate
Purchase a license (or use the trial)

Your phone will work after doing this.

Can I use multitasking on a jailbroken iPhone 3G?


Welcome to FixYa. Short answer: yes, you can enable some sort of multitasking on a jailbroken iPhone devices, even on an iPhone 3G - however, your hardware won't be able to handle the severe increase in memory usage, making your phone highly unstable. I would advise against trying to use this, your phone simply can't handle it.

Everytime i open the app on my ipod touch i enter my password then it freezes then crashes and goes back to the menu. I can open up and folder or pictures before it freezes, what can i do?, is there away...


Are you entering the correct password?
There is a way to get your files if your iPod touch is jailbroken.
You can access the root folder by using iPhone Explorer or Winscp.
You have to have OpenSSH installed on your phone. You can download it in Cydia.
If your phone is not jailbroken, I believe you can just delete the application and then download it again.
No need to worry about the payment because when you buy an application in the App Store, you can download it as many times as you want provided you use the same account.

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..


Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)

I CAN'T CALL OR HANG UP FROM MY IPHONE BUT OTHER KEY PAD WORKS.WHAT DO I DO?


am assuming you JB your phone recently?

If yes, then the dialer freezing issue is caused by few apps from Installer. I faced the same issue and I ended up restoring and re-JB without selecting Installer. If you would like to keep Installer, the Apps that you need to remove are:

- Kate
- Mobile Enhancer
- RIP DEV Preferences

Just go to Installer and remove those and restart your iPhone, the freezing and crashing should stop.

As of upgrading to 2.2.1 for JB purposes, it's 100% jailbreak-able and it works well. But I am not 100% sure regarding yell0wsnow. (I don't unlock, I only JB - sorry)

Hope this was helpful smile.gif

Iphone 3g complete crash!


The only thing I can think, is that you got hold of a bad package cause my iphone edge did the same thing. When restoring make sure to let iTunes download the firmware so that you dont get an uncompatable version of firmware and get a head splitting head ache like i did, i downloaded the 3G firmware off the net only to relized almost three hours later that that version of the 3.0 firmware cant be loaded on the edge.
