Why is my jailbreak acting up?

Here is my situation.....

....I jailbroke my phone recently using a Mac, and began to have some minor problems with it (getting hung up in boot logo) so I restored.

Up until the restore i had no problems, and the reason I had to restore was my fault completely.

After the restore i jailbroke again, but this time I had to use a PC, because I got a new unibody mac and am unable to jailbreak using it.

The problem is, when i jailbreak with the PC everything goes through fine and the jailbreak is successful, but when i begin to install applications problems start. Here is some of my issues:

Install five dock icon: spring board crashes everytime i move icons
Install SBsettings: phone gets hung up in "restring" whenever i hide icons

these are the two main problems i've had, and I never had the problems when i jailbroke with the mac. WHY is my phone doing this? its so frustrating! PLEASE HELP! :/

EDIT: OK, so if anyone is interested in knowing (i don't want to scare anyone out of jailbreaking, because its awesome) the errors were caused completely by me.
ALSO, if you are using a mac with leopard 10.5.6 you can bypass the OS through a USB hub, its very easy!

first off, you shouldn't have upgraded to 10.5.6 on your macbook, if you hadn't all your problems would be solved. you probably should pm lincoln for a fix for this and you most likely won't have any problems anymore.

if you are too lazy for that, i would recommend going back to the PC, restoring, and then rejailbreaking to see if that helps. i really see no reason for the issues you are having other than process or user error so eliminate one of those possibilities and you have yourself your answer.
