I have the same problem, installer just quits back to the summerboard, i've tried turning itouch off restarting it and sometimes it works or just trying a couple times in a row, but now after several tries it won't open. Not that installer is doing much for me these days. Most applications that i try to install, usually games, will start to install but instead of sliding back to the package window, installer quits to the summerboard and i see that i have the application on my file manager but they are no where to be found on my itouch. if anyone has any suggestions of how to fix these problems please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Press and hold Power and home button for few seconds, it will turn off the device, keep the device off for few minutes then press the power button only to make the phone on again, and it should work again properly, This may happens when you try to install apps specially themes which hangs the springboard

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!
Try holding the power switch at the top of your iPhone, and while holding this down, hold down the "Home" button on the iPhone (round button on the bottom of the iPhone). Be patient, it may take a few seconds to shut down.
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)
i had something similar where my iphone just freezes and goes back to home 3 seconds after i go to the phone part of the iphone. I just went to settings>RiP Dev (something I downloaded after jailbreaking)>RiP Dev Products > Kate and there Look for a checked application called facelift. I unchecked it and my calling worked again. It was cause Facelift is not compadable with Winter Board (another app dled from installer) If this doesnt solve the problem then... sorry :x
