    allright so i have had so many problems with people coming up and messing with my touch and i don't wanna go to the trouble of opening cracks or any of that stuff so i have modified an app so that whenever they try to open it it will come up with a screen saying deleting all files.
    to make this app perfect all i need is some way to diable the home button and have it shut off the ipod after 15 seconds or atleast disable the home button
    i have tried this on my friend and when he showed me i just turned it off and showed him the spinning circle and he was like oh sh*t and now he doesn't mess with it anymore

    so the file i have it as is for safari but you can change it to whatever you want by just changing the folder name(it can't be the same as another(duh)) and the icon.png
    obviously to install just ssh into applications and put it there
    any suggestions welcome

    ~~stef~~

    I just installed it without changing anything and it does not replace anything, as the real safari is called MobilSafari.app not just safari.app.

    Nice app by the way, could be a little more graphical, like a status bar, or the little spinning gray wheel, but I like it.

    You know what would be awesome? If someone could re-create the Connect to iTunes screen, kinda like what you have but the one on the black background, and have that be all that shows up!

    it would be perfect as an icon on the spring bord like Personal Pictures or Diare or some sh*t, then when they click it it locks them out, or creates a fake restore thing. The other day my ****** friend f***ed with my touch, and literally set it into a crash loop, and i lost all my songs. this does not deture him from touching it unfortunately.

    I would have done more with the pics but my dad decided that I should not be using photoshop for some absurdd reason and so I just did them in paint
    I might do one with a spinning wheel if I can figure out how to add more pictures to the loop
    right now my grandpa is in the hospital in fairly serious condition so I don't have much time between going there(its a 1 hour drive there) and school and ultimate (best sport ever)
