    Hey, I recently installed Five-Column Springboard on my iphone 3gs and as soon as i respringed the phone, it went straight to safe mode. In safe mode, i went to cydia and I tried to uninstall five column springboard but an error keeps coming up everytime. This is what comes up:

    Five-Column SpringBoard
    subprocess pre-removal script
    returned error exit status 127

    any ideas on how to fix this without restoring my phone?

    Thanks.

    Five Column Springboard is iOS4 compatible, and should work with your iDevice w/o going into safe mode. Just go into Cydia go to Changes. Once there delete the package Five Column Springboard. Reboot iPhone.
