    i was using customize 2.0 and i downloaded a theme, after applying and restarting, i re-sprung unto the enter password to unlock screen,

    my problem is that the theme made the numeric pad disappear, ive clicked all around and the only number i can find is 1 and the bottom left hand corner.
    Unfortunately my password isnt 1111, so im locked out.

    i searched around and ive read about editing a plist file,
    i tired that but it didnt work,
    i can still SSH, so i ssh'd into my ipod and removed/uninstalled customize and summerboard.
    but i think the theme is still there, and the numeric pad is gone.

    Is there anything i can do?
    im currently using iBackup to save all my app, because if i cant figure out what to do in an hour im going to restore

    if u can put customize back on
    then use ssh and do
    cd /Applications/Customize.app
    ./Customize

    and then apply OriginalBackup

    thanks for the quick reply, but i just uninstalled both customize and summerboard.
    how can i get them back?

    also im guessing that
    cd /Applications/Customize.app
    ./Customize
    are terminal commands (which i know very little of)
    help plz

    you could download Customize manually from the website

    and for the terminal commands
    since you have ssh (and probably putty)

    download PuTTY from here: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
    then run it
    log in
    username is root
    password is alpine

    FTP the Customize back into the /Applications directory (after unzipping, of course)
    then it PuTTY
    type in:

    chmod -r 755 /Applications/Customize.app
    chown root:wheel /Applications/Customize.app/Customize
    ./Applications/Customize.app/Customize

    and apply OriginalBackup
