    I just discovered a couple new bugs on beta 4. One which is rather harmless, and one that is pretty damn serious.

    Bug 1: go to the lockscreen and press the power button 3 times. You get a white screen. To get out, press power or home.

    Bug 2: go to the last page on your springboard. Press home, and press on the screen while it's moving to "stop" it from going to the 1st home page. Make sure that your holding your finger on an app as well. While holding the app, when it begins to wiggle, it disappears. Its basically a blank application, which can be moved around, but cannot be opened. Its a pretty serious bug because spotlight wouldn't open the app for me, and I resorted to a reboot. Reboot went fine, however my springboard was rearranged in alphabetical order. Restoring from a backup was quick to rearrange my springboard back to normal.

    That 2nd bug is a pretty bad one. Try it out (at your own risk) and post if you get the same issue.

    [EDIT]Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTON7wWeUNw

    I've known about the white screen thing for a while. It should be noted it only works for 3rd gen devices.

    I can't get the second bug to work.

    thats if you use the Home button. if you use the power button, it gives you a white screen.

    I just watched (and commented on) the video.

    Bug duly noted. I don't think I'll be trying that after all.

    I also get the white screen when rebooting... anyone else?

    the white screen on reboot might have to do wiith verbose boot on mine..
