    Be careful. If you have lockdown installed (which is a great app - it lets you lock cretin apps with a pass code when they are opened)

    HOWEVER, don't try this:

    Tap and app like PHOTOS that you probably have locked. When the number pad comes up for you to put in your code, push the HOME button. You will now get a Spinning Wheel (not of death though) Your iPod will then respring into safe mode, and if your like me and have 5 x 5 x 5 icons, safe mode will put them in 4 x 4 x 4, so when you restart in normal mode, you need to re-arangeyour apps!!!

    Urg, I did this twice by accident and thought i'd let you all know that you can't cancel lockdown by pushing home.

    Anyone know the creator of that app? This should be sent to them so the can fix it with an update.

    Thanks!

    He means at the pass code screen, where you enter your password, there is a cancel button but if you press home it will go to safe mode.

    Just installed Lockdown on my IPT2. And whenever I tried to run a locked app, it crashes. It brings the passcode screen, and I DO enter correct passcode. then it brings me to the safe mode....

    Any idea guys? I uninstalled and re-installed more than 5 times...

    Ah, Lockdown version is 5.5 and my IPT2's FW is 3.0. just jailbroken by redsn0w 0.7

    It's an issue with 3.0. Lockdown just has to be updated.
