I can't believe they've left this bug in there for weeks, but it really annoys me. Every time I install Customize via Installer on a new phone, it never loads unless I also install Squid/Mobile Finder and change the permissions on both the Customize and Info.plist files to 0755. Why didn't they notice this bug weeks ago? It wasn't like this in the previous version...

hmm.. i kept hearing about the bugs in customize so i didn't install it but decided to give it a try last week.. luckily i haven't had any problems.. i had more problems with summerboard till i read the post about dimming your wallpaper..

are there still bugs after you changed the permissions?

Well the bug was that the program doesn't work unless I change the permissions. Once I've done that, the program runs fine. It's just annoying to have to change those permissions manually each time.

i don't know if you're talking about this issue but anyway, when u install cusomize v1.13 and u try to start the application you will see the chicken picture and the application will quit automatically.. just keep on starting the application and in about 5 seconds the application will start... so just keep starting it until it actually start.. if this is not the issue then just ignore what i said

So are you saying that I don't need to change the permissions and that if I just keep restarting the app over and over that it will eventually start by itself and never freeze again?

Yheap. You have to load OpenSSH to your phone. Load WinSCP on your computer (PC) and then get your IP address from your phone. Place that in the host area for a new connection and the username of root and the password of alpine and hit connect. You will now be connected into your iPhone. I would suggest plugging the phone into the dock while you SSH into so that if it goes to sleep it will not kill the Wifi connection.

I am not sure what the SSH application is for a Mac, I am sure they have one, I just don't know what it is. If you can not get Wifi then you have to use an application like Independence that will allow you to connect to your iPhone through the USB cable.

can someone maybe post a step by step guide. I have tried to restart, reinstall several times, still I get the chicken screen then it crashes over and over no matter ho many times I try I can't get it to work. This was one of the main apps I jb for. Maybe someone can post a guide I am have never changed a permission before and it sounds complicated.

I am dying to use my customize and summerboard. They are almost the only reason that i even jailbreak. I did the squid and finder thing too and it just lets me see the settings but won't let me change them. I have been trying for two weeks to get them to work.

I'd be happy to put up a simple "fix" on my installer source for y'all. I don't use Customize, so I'm going to need someone to test it for me :p

All you'll have to do is install the fix to change the permissions, and uninstall to revert them back.
