hellou guys,

I just got myself an ipad 1gen, and started to play around and installed winterboard, and till then, every time when i restart my ipad the unlock drag on locked screen is all the way from side to side, when i do unlock for the first time screen isn't working at all so i need to lock and unlock again to make it work, when i do that, status bar isn't working right as everything in it somewhat dissected into some funny colored lines, and apps on home screen are smaller then they should be, eventually when i do get up to settings and get to the winterboard i just activate and reactivate something and respring my device and everyrhing's ok ....

dont know what more i need to post that could help,

version is 4.2.1 (settings>general>about ) and it is jailbroken

tnx 4 reading this :D :D hope to make it right :D :D

I've just moved this to the Hacking Forum as you are jailbroken......hopefully you will get the answer that you need here.

4.2.1 is getting really old now. As a minimum you really need to be on 4.3.3 IMHO. You will find that more and more tweaks and apps are unsupported as you stay on that old version.

It sounds like you have installed a tweak which is not designed for iPad, or not designed for 4.2.1. It is unlikely to be Winterboard, but it is a possibility. I would suggest removing the last few things you updated or installed via Cydia and reboot after each until you find the culprit.

One tweak which I know does this on IOS 5.0.1 is "Apptivator".

Nope, sorry, there isn't. Remember the golden rule. Always pay attention! It precisely for this reason that you should check what packages you are accepting updates for! :)

I think your best bet is to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 and then jail break your iPad with redsn0w. That way, you are fully up-to-date with what's going on currently.

Here's a handy tutorial to put iOS 5.0.1 on your iPad (just follow the steps exactly): http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

Then, after you've successfully put iOS 5.0.1 on the iPad, jail break it by following the steps in this tutorial: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...orial-jailbreak-ipad1-ios5-using-redsn0w.html

Again, this will enable you to take advantage of all the tweaks that have been optimized to run on iOS 5 (which is most of the good ones!).

Oh, and you are probably going to need to do this upgrade very soon. Rumors say that a new version of the iOS is due out the first week in March (iOS 5.1). That version is not jailbreakable and if you aren't on iOS 5.0.1, then you won't be able to go to it - and thus jail break your iPad. So, not to hurry you, but - go! :D

Good luck and let us know if you have questions/trouble.

I'm pretty dissapointed that all you want to do now is steal software. Piracy is illegal and it is NOT the reason we jailbreak around here. Please read our rules and understand that if you discuss piracy or ways to enable it here you will be banned.
