    I have searched high and low for any type of solution and I have tried many, and nothing is working. I know I am not the only one with this problem.

    After the 1.1.3 ZiPhone jailbreaking Installer shows Summer Board loaded. When I SSH into phone it is not there. Cant un-install, get a script error since it is not there.

    All the other apps that are shown in installer to be loaded on the phone are also missing, but I have been focusing in Summer Board.

    I did a manual install from the .zip file and followed the instructions below:

    ********************************
    MANUAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
    ********************************

    Copy the files to your iPhone as follows:

    SummerBoard.framework -> /Library/Frameworks/SummerBoard.framework
    SMBPrefs.app -> /Applications/SMBPrefs.app
    Themes -> /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes
    com.apple.SpringBoard.plist -> /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    Make sure that the plists permissions are as such:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 704 Oct 9 20:00 com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    Reboot iPhone, enjoy!

    This is the closest I have gotten so far. I have the icon and can launch it, but the screen is blank for 15 seconds and then simply closes.

    I have seen others with the same problem posted. Please help us, and thanks in advance.

    SMB and Customize work perfectly for me as far as launching and choosing options then saving and exiting....... they just don't make any changes. The factory apple springboard takes charge of everything.

    I have the same problem with my phone. It's now Ziphoned 1.1.3 bl4.6. The customize and summerboard are running well except they don't make changes. You can run, choose the way you want the icons to arrange, choose themes, etc... but when you refresh or restart the phone the settings are the same, no difference made.

    Maybe I'll wait for the new versions of summerboard and customize made for 1.1.3. Or is there any solution regarding this?

    here's what the problem is with smb in 113...

    all themes (atleast all of my fav ones ) get downloaded in the folder /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes and the program looks up the folder /var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes for themes.

    therefore, all newly downloaded themes dont show up in the list...leading to the cumbersome method of moving the themes from root to mobile after every download

    a simple fix to the above problem is (every step is followed by the code to perform that function)

    1. make sure when you start there no new themes (only the default ones)

    2. remove the themes directory in the root folder
    Code:
    rm -rf /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes
    3. create an alias(symbolic link) in the same place which points to the theme directory in mobile
    Code:
    ln -s /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes /var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes
    after this, all the new themes downloaded will go in the right folder and will show up in the app

    you can enter these commands from the terminal after sshing into your phone. for mac: terminal can be used, for windows ive head winputty or something like that is great... i personally would suggest to download the termvt-100 app and do is straight on the phone, saves you a little bit of effort

    cheers!

    p.s. i claim no responsibility should anything happen to your iphone (though id sure like to know how u managed that )


    update: this is exactly what the smb theme fix by bigboss does. but i also read that all the themes have been updated with the correct paths... i wonder why the issue still persists...?
    bigboss beta repo where the SMB Themes Fix can be found is http://iphone.sleepers.net/repobeta.xml
