    Hey guys, many of my friends need help, cuz their springboard was crashed and can't quit the safe mode, to repair it, your iphone or ipod needs to be jailbroken and do the following things:
    * I am not responsible for things goes wrong or can't repair
    --------------------------------------------
    A) Use WIFI Services (if you have wifi)
    1) Open WIFI inside the Safe Mode, then select your WIFI Network name
    and look at your IP Address by touching the blue icon > (sth like that)

    2) Now, go to your computer and use WinSCP http://winscp.net/eng/download.php#download2
    (or other stuff that can access your device by using WIFI), after you got in, a window requires you to login... here are the informations that you need to type in there:

    Host: ( your IP address )
    Username: root
    Password: alpine
    Port: 22

    3) You are now connected to your jailbroken device, go to up and up and up, just go to the main file with the name /

    4) After that, go to the file name System inside the folder / , then go to Library inside System, then click on the file CoreServices and you will see SpringBoard.app

    The way you go to there should be like this: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    5) Delete it and replaced my [attachment] with the file unzipped, then right click to properties and set 0777 and tick the box. Now restart your springboard and you can use now!!!!

    6) Done!!!!
    --------------------------------------------
    B) Don't Use WIFI Services (if you do NOT have wifi)

    1) Plug in your iPod or iPhone Device into the computer by using the USB Cable.

    2) Use iFunBox (i suggest to use that, cuz iPhone PC Suit requires you to install Panda Daemon, annoying...) Then, iFunBox will connect your Device, if you can't re-plug your device again and again since the spring is crashed

    3) Click on your device name on the right, then click on Raw File System.

    4) After that, go to the file name System inside , then go to Library inside System, then click on the file CoreServices and you will see SpringBoard.app

    The way you go to there should be like this: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    5) Delete it and replaced my [attachment] with the file unzipped.

    6) ReBoot your Device

    7) Done!!!!

    Warning: This tutorial should not be attempted.
    SpringBoard.app is different for each device and iOS version. The linked SpringBoard.app file in this tutorial will be specific to a certain hardware/iOS version combination only. Applying this to a different device or iOS build will cause iOS to completely fail and require the device to be restored.

    Also, the download links are dead.

    Also, the files are copyrighted.
