I have a 2nd gen 16Gb iPhone, yesterday I updated the firmware to version 3.0 and using redsn0w to re-jailbreak the device.

All went ok-ish, I had a few problems with Cydia crashing repeatedly and apt-backup failed to restore my Cydia apps; I had to re-install them manually.

This morning I noticed I was missing my CTU ringtone, fired up Cydia to install it and noticed an update available for sbsettings.

I told Cydia to update sbsettings, and it seemed to update a LOT of other dependencies at the same time.

I did not take much notice of what they were(Typical user..)

The re-spring started, and locked up. I left it for ten minutes, then did a hard reset.

Now the phone fails to boot.

I will perform a recovery when I get back home tonight, but in the mean time no phone (and more importantly, no ebooks!).

I updated SBSettings this morning and have had no issues. I used PwnageTool so it may be something to do with Redsn0w??

Not sure really just wanted to say I don't think it's an issue directly with SBSettings as mine is fine after the update.

Thanks for that, hard to know what the root cause was.

I will go through the process again tonight after I have done a restore.

It was probably sunspots, or lack of sunspots. Damn sun, always causing problems.

Had a lot of trouble with it last night, but it worked out in the end.

I firstly tired the iTune recovery method. It would start the recovery, but when iTunes starts uploading to the iPhone the phone would lock up.

I then decided to try re-jailbreak it. Redsn0w successfully rebroke the phone, but it fix the problem, the phone still failed to boot.

At this point I was getting pretty worried.

I tried the iTunes recovery again, and this time it worked. It appeared that the reapplying the jailbreak did something that allowed iTunes to restore the device.

So my precious is back, but I have a sbsettings update waiting in cydia..

Not feeling brave enough to do that yet.

Hi I have iPhone 1st Gen 3.0 and installed SBSettings via Cydia, v2.99-4

After it installed it also locked up, and after about 10 min I gave up and reset the thing.

Difference for me is that my phone booted ok and SBSettings seems to be working.

Just to add more information. Cheers.
