    I installed the dock.app this morning and it was working all fine until this afternoon i went to go and launch installer, i opened up the dock and selected Installer

    Once I took my finger off... the screen went black with 3 white, horizontal striped for about 5 mins and then rebooted (it took nearly half an hour to boot up)

    Then... it was all fine, I unistalled the app..
    Could anybody tell me what happened and why

    I believe if you do a quick search you will find lots of threads telling you all the problems with that app

    Just search Dock.... it's not a bad program, but the iPod just doesn't like it for some reason. It causes many a person lag and crashes, among compatibility issues with many other apps.

    that happened to me before, dock is not always stable. I just reinstalled it and it was fine. but eventually you'll realize dock kinda sucks lol.

    hahaha... silly me..
    I installed it again this morning and started using it...every time i activiated the dock it just crashed (the screen just went all pixelated, i could still see the screen and there was blocks of the screen missing) and it was in a reboot cycle. I just plugged it in to iTunes to origanlly restore but it synced and was back to normal... i tried it again and it crashed so a warning

    dont install dock.app, it will end up crashing your iPoT (it did it to me 3 times now)
