    lockdown.app HELP!!!

    i installed lockdown thinking it would b awesome... however upon restarting i was faced with an a lock icon on the full screen which no amount of screaming, shaking or off/on/home button pushing could fix.
    So i decided to ssh in and see if i could kill the process... no dice there either..
    so i went about deleting the lockdown.app directory from the Applications folder thinking that would kill it, still had the same problem...
    so i looked in each of the apps which i had chosen to lock and low and behold it replaced all the original lauchers and info.plists with its own which made them locked to start with. so i put the original ones back in place and deleted the ones made by lockdown. this fixed my problem with the image however now i am stuck with not being able to open cydia and bossprefs as they instantly crash... however i also chose to lock bosstools but accidentally missed deleting the new app created by lockdown.app...

    so i dno wat i can do now... any suggestions would b most welcome!!!

    you might need to restore in iTunes to fix cydia and everything. My cydia crashed on startup so I restored and it worked!

    For Cydia crashing on startup, you just need to reinstall. I.E., in terminal:

    su root

    alpine

    apt-get remove cydia

    Yes, do as I say!

    apt-get install cydia

    exit

    killall SpringBoard

    Where are can I find the original files for MobileSafari, SMS, and Mail?

    EDIT: Got the safari files from the SDK, look at me using my brain for once.
    Unfortunately I can't get the other two there. Can anyone post?

    Try this:

    1, restart
    2, when springboard is activated quick click on Lockdown
    3, unlock locked applications
    4, close Lockdown
    5, uninstall Lockdown and forget about this hellish application

    When you install something from cydia YOU DONT need to reboot unless it says to in the description. I had NO problems with this app it works perfect
