Hey guys got my iPhone 3G yesterday and setup about 5 email accounts on it and then now I have one email account that will not work and when I go to the settings > mail accounts and click delete it goes to the deleting screen for hours and it wont delete and if i click account info to try and change the password on the account it freezes the phone as well.

The phone is jailbroken and I turned off the email accounts through BossPrefs and then did the directory permission fix and it still locks up when I try to delete or change password with that account.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you tried a hard reset on your iPhone (Holding sleep button and home button at same time until iPhone powers off)? Mark

Yes I have tried hard resetting the device numerous times and still can't delete or change the info on that email account.

I even tried to turn off each of the calendar, mail.... services and then trying to delete the account but it freezes when I try to disable those services for the account as well.

I have tried the BossPrefs fix and even looked at the permissions and send them through ssh to no luck.

Anyone have any last hope before I have to restore? Can you even restore on a jailbroken phone? 2.1... that is
