KateKiller here

Upon installing this God-forsaken Kate application last night while lying down in bed, I realized that my touch screen wouldn't respond in all programs other than the home screen.

Holy ****. My iPhone died.

Long story short, I came here, saw your thread, and was about to post another "My iPhone died, plz help omgz" thread but I actually fixed the problem. Here we go:

1. Connect your iPhone to your computer, preferably removing the Dock so you can actually hold the phone comfortably.

2. Get on your home screen and find the Kate application icon.

3. Click and HOLD this icon until all icons begin squiggling around the screen.

4. Hopefully your "Kate" icon has an "X" on the top left corner of it, which is there to delete or uninstall the application. Click this.

5. Kate will ask you if you would like to uninstall or delete...go ahead and click Uninstall, then it will give you a set of instructions on how to uninstall, and also a 2nd uninstall button you'll have to pick.


6. Leave your iPhone plugged in and on this last menu, and just set it down on the table. After a minute or two, my phone randomly synced again with my computer, and the phone was back to normal again.

Pay attention here...if you uninstall the program through installer WITHOUT unchecking all of Kate's settings through the program itself, your phone will still be messed up as far as fonts and other things go.

Hope this helps, and I'll be around to answer any questions.

How to Jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch (iOS 4.3.1, Untethered)

How to Jailbreak your iPod with redsn0w.

Regarding the legality of jailbreaking:
It has been ruled by law that jailbreaking is, in fact, legal, despite what some say. However, there are things that you can do with jailbreaking that are illegal, none of which is discussed here. Everything that you are instructed to do here is perfectly legal. Even downloading Installous is legal, but pirating paid apps from it is illegal. Use at your own risk.

That said, let's get on with the jailbreaking! Jailbreaking with redsn0w is easy. The first thing you will want to is check to make sure you have iOS 4.3.1. Also note that this will not work with Verizon's iPhone. To check your current version, get out your iPod or iPhone and go to settings. Once there, go to general and then press about. It should list your version there. If you don't have 4.3.1, you can get it by plugging your iPhone or iPod into iTunes and update it from the pop-up window that will appear.

Once you're sure that your iOS version is 4.3.1, which is the latest as of April 9th, 2011, we can begin. The first step is to download Redsn0w, the tool we will be using.

For Windows: Download from this link. Once you download Redsn0w, you need to right click on it and select properties. Go to the compatibility tab and check Run as administrator and Run in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

For Mac: Download from this link.

Now we're ready to start the process of jailbreaking your iPod / iPhone with redsn0w.

Step 1) Plug your iPhone or iPod Touch into your computer. Make sure iTunes is closed and that your iPhone or iPod is off.

Step 2) Download and select your device's IPSW. To do that, go to this page and click the link for your device. The download may take a little while. Once your download is done, open Redsn0w and press the browse button. Browse to the IPSW file you just downloaded and open it.

Step 3) Press next and wait for Redsn0w to process the data. Once it's done you will see a screen asking which options you want. Make sure Install Cydia is the only one checked. Press next.

Step 4) You will see a screen that tells you to make sure your iPhone/iPod is off. Pick up your device in your hands and be ready to follow the on-screen instructions. When you are ready, press next.

Step 5) Follow the on-screen instructions, telling you to hold the power button and home button and whatnot. Once it automatically skips to the next screen, you should release the buttons you are holding and wait for the jailbreak to continue. Once it asks you to press finish, do so but leave your iPhone or iPod plugged in.

Step 6) Wait for your iPhone or iPod to finish its process. Do not be alarmed if white lines of text appear, or if a walking pineapple appears.

Once your iPhone or iPod is back at the lock screen, your jailbreak is done! Cydia, your jailbroken app store, should be found as the last app on your last page. Have fun, and play safe.

My iphone screen is completly black i've tried holding the home and the off button down at the same time and its still not working wtf . i really need help !!

Hi, this happened to me once and I researched a fix by looking for 'iPhone black screen of death'
Here's one of the current articles that comes up under that search:
1) If an application (such as Safari) is frozen, just press and hold the iPhone's home button for about 5 seconds, or until the home screen shows up. (This didn't work for my iPhone so we had to perform a soft reset).
2) To perform a soft reset, press and hold the iPhone's Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for several seconds, or until you see the apple logo on the screen. (This action did reset my iPhone and I was very happy at this point). The guys that helped me said that continually performing soft resets can cause problems however.
3) Hard resets are not recommended, but are required when a soft reset won't do the trick. The Apple Geniuses wouldn't tell me the key combo to perform a hard reset because it restores the iPhone to a state that's unusable. Users risk losing data and you must synch your iPhone with iTunes to make it function after a hard reset.

Also, if you are not turning off apps after use they could be overloading things and might cause it to happen again. to turn off apps do a double tap on the 'Home' button, and all your open apps will be listed along the bottom of the screen. press on one icon and hold until the icons start to wobble and have the X in the top right corner click on these to turn them off. Its also good practice to do this several times a day if you use a lot of apps because having ghem open eats up your battery power.

HTC touch HD is completley frozen

If you have all your items saved to your computer with Active Sync, then do a master reset:
HTC Touch hard reset 14 January 2008
  • Power on.
  • Press and hold buttons marked 1.
  • Press and release 2 with stylus.
  • Release buttons marked 1 when menu comes up.
  • Press directly down on center dpad, marked 3.
You can also get tips & tricks from
It has the latest and great updates, software, even known issues if you ever come across this. HTC does recommend that you do a master/hard reset once a quarter to keep it moving smoothly. Also, ensure you don't have a lot of open running programs. Perhaps once a day, clean the cashe and history. Do a soft reset (aka battery pull) once or twice a week. All depends on how hard you play with this lovely PDA device!
