    I have firmware 1.1.4, and the dock portion on my iPhone is dead. i have like a millimeter of space to only slide to unlock and answer calls (only if the lock is on) with the slider but other than that nothing on the bottom works. i know what i have to do and Ive installed SMSD, boss pref, and text edit on the phone, but how (like exact step by step) to i fix this problem. I would be GREATLY appreciative if someone told me how to do it my email is charon_simmons@yahoo.com and i check it ALL THE TIME so email me at anytime with the solutiuon thanks in advance

I tried solution on Unlocked 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 versions. Just follow the steps they have been explained really easy way. Dont think this is too hard. Just follow them it will work:
1) download WinSCP on your PC (google it) and run the application
2) download new general.plist file (google it) on laptop
3) download OpenSSH on your iphone (it will not show on iphone but its there so dont worry)
4) connect the laptop and iphone through the same wireless network.
5) write the ipaddress of the iphone from(Settings>Wifi>network details to which you are connected to shows you the ipaddress)
6) Goto laptop on WinSCP type the ipaddress of the iphone in host name field and username: root and password: alpine and then hit Login.
7) it will open like an explorer view of your iphone files on laptop then click on root on the left side. then Click Applications> preferences> replace the general.plist file with the one you downloaded. you have Done the major part.

I don't know about replacing it but you can use Assistive Touch ( Settings/ General / Accessibility / Assistive Touch on ). If your iPhone is jailbroken , activator is the best.

My screen is not responding on my Iphone. It will not slide to open and it will not let me turn it off or anything. Its like the screen is dead.


Hello Misty,

May be the screen becomes dirty due to daily use.

Please clean the Touch Screen of the phone with good screen cleaner properly.

Then try use the Touch Screen.

My iphone wont respond to my touch in the bottem halk


Have you tried doing a hard shut down? Hold the silver button down on the upper right corner and also the home button (center,bottom indented button) together for about 10 seconds. the phone will completly shut off. then wait about 10 seconds and hold down the upper right hand button until the apple appears on the phone then release the button and wait (20-30seconds) . Doing this usually solves all my issues with my iphone when it gets locked up like this.

Downgrade to Firmware 1.1.4 (watch some videos on youtube)

Jailbreak using idemocracy 3.0 (google it)

Connect your phone and open fie browser for iphone.

Move to /Application/Preferences.app/
Replace the touch.plist and general.plist with the files found here:

Restart your phone. Got to settings >>> general >>> Touch and decrease the sensitivity t0 -15.0

Restart your phone.
Should work fine now..
