It is difficult for me to completely understand your problem. What version of firmware are you running? Do you have multi-pages enabled with Summerboard? If not, new apps you install will push other apps (like installer.app) off your main page.

To fix this quickly, you will need to ssh into your phone to change the plist data and move installer.app to the front of your list. Then, install summerboard to get multi pages enabled.

If you don't know what ssh is, then you'll need to:
restore your phone completely to 1.1.3 using itunes
download ziphone from http://www.ziphone.org/
run ziphone -j

now you'll be fixed.

My i phone is locked


Hi,
Before we get started, you'll want to disable the iTunes helper application that may get in the way of the installation. Make sure iTunes is not running, then open OS X's Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder of the Applications folder. Search for or scroll down to iTunes Helper, select it, and then click on the Quit Process button in the top left of the screen. You'll also need your iPhone, your data cable, and a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet.
Apple doesn't support the installation of third-party applications on the iPhone, but enterprising developers have created a program called AppTapp that will let you install including chat clients, games, and other pieces of software - including those that are needed to unlock your iPhone

Download and install AppTapp. Once you run the program, the first thing it will do is ask what version of the firmware you're running. If you've just updated your iPhone, you probably have Firmware 1.0.2-select that and click on Continue.
Assuming all goes well, you should get a screen that begins with the words: "Congratulations! You have successfully installed AppTapp Installer onto your iPhone." You should then find a new application on the iPhone's home screen called Installer.
The next instructions will require downloading some applications from the Internet to your iPhone-so make sure your iPhone is connected to a WiFi network. Launch the Installer program, and you'll see a long list of various applications that you can install. Scroll down, then select and install-in order-Community Sources, BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH.
NOW PERFORM THE GSM UNLOCK
First, download and install Unlock.app, lockdownd, and Cyberduck.
Then go to the iPhone's General settings and set Auto-Lock to Never. Next, you'll need to get your iPhone's IP address on your local network. To do this, go to Settings: Wi-Fi and click on the blue arrow next to the network that you're connected too. Write down the IP address, as you'll need it for later.
Now, open Cyberduck and click on the Open Connection button in the top left of the window. In the connection window, type the IP address that you just noted. Make sure that SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer) is selected, and that you are using Port 22. For the username, type root, with the password of dottie.

Once connected, navigate from /private/var/root to the main directory by choosing the / item. Next, navigate to /usr/libexec and drag the file named lockdownd (the one you downloaded earlier) into it. It will ask if you want to overwrite the existing file-click on Continue to do so.

Now, in Cyberduck, drag the Unlock file from the Mac's desktop into the /Applications folder at the top of the main window. Once that's done, turn off your iPhone and remove the SIM card, then turn your iPhone back on and choose the application on your iPhone called Unlock

Afterwards,there should be a white screen that says "All files found. Ready to go. Press Start." Once you press start, it will take about 20 minutes for all the files to install.

The progress messages will appear at the top of the screen as it progress-once you see "Completed" then you're finished. Insert a new SIM card of your choosing into your iPhone. Congratulations, you've just unlocked your iPhone!

What do i do when my iphone freezes?


When ever the iphone freezes there are couple of steps you can try:
  1. Press the home button till the application closes.
  2. Press the home button and the power button till you see the apple logo.
The phone freezes mainly because there are lot of applications installed or you have used most of the hard disk space used.

2.2 Jailbroken iPhone 3G dailer crashes! Help!


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 loaded too many (more than 80) softwares in my 8GB iphone. it now hangs whenever i open any software for use.


I reccomend removing some software and placing it on the larger media partition.
 If you are already using the media partition, i reccomend using sftp (you can use a program like cyberduck - mac or smartFTP-pc to do this) to connect and remove some of the software located in /Applications and supporting files in /library/Application Support.
Username: Admin Password: Alpine
You need to have installed SSH on the iPhone before you can do this and due to security, the iPhone must be plugged in with the USB cable and on the main menu (springboard) screen before you can connect to it. 
If you are not happy removing software by hand, i reccomend you perform a system restore through iTunes.
