Has your iPhone Ever Frozen? Jailbroken phones only!

Asked by theloveprophet (337 points ) April 14th, 2008

Today the strangest thing happened to me. I have a T-Mobile iPhone and I went into an AT&T store by the iPhone stand. I whipped out my phone to compare the two and when I tried to unlock my phone, the slider wouldn’t move. So I restarted my phone and things worked fine. I left, and then hit the slider to change my phone to vibrate, and nothing happened. I tried to turn on my phone and nothing happened. I had to restart my phone.

It’s like AT&T did something to my iPhone lol. THEY KNOW!

So the question… If you have a Jailbroken iPhone, has it ever frozen? Did you do anything to repair it?

its just like a computer it sometimes freezes up. I still don’t know what jailbreak a phone means. And also I thought only at&t supports the iPhone

Well, number one, in Germany, T-Mobile is the iPhone’s Carrier.
Number two, it is extremely easy to unlock iPhones now-a-days. An 8 year old could do it.

But I like the first part of your answer.

Well I installed a wrong app for my phone and it went crazy! Locked up, and it would not shut off. I uninstalled the app and it worked fine.

theloveprophet's avatar

Which app was it? I want to know just in case I have it installed. If I don’t, thanks for the warning!

hairypalm's avatar

I can’t even remember bro, I freaked out and started uninstalling all my apps.

Ahhh, ok, well if you remember, you know who to tell ;)

All the software on your jailbroken iPhone (for the most part) is written by amature programmers. Not to say they aren’t skilled, but they don’t have the resources to make sure everything will work 100%. If one app goes and does something wacky, your whole phone might freeze

theloveprophet's avatar

Yeah. That’s true.
The amateurs have been doing a pretty good job so far though. I mean, heck, Apple doesn’t even get everything right 100% of the time. Maybe 99%...

Amateur programmers? Ha, go look at the app store… I know for certain many people programming iphone apps have never touched Objective-C before, because those programmers live in my town and I have talked with them about what they are currently developed. On the other hand there are developers working on the jail-broken apps that have been doing that for years.

BTW, if you look at the apple forums you will see lots of posts about frozen iphones and applications crashing on NON-jailbroken iphones.

The only solutions I have seen involve restore and downgrading itunes to 7.7 so far.
