Customize Crashing Fix

Customize Ok guys, a ton of you are having issues with Customize opening and then closing back to the SpringBoard (Doug was among those of you having issues). I was hoping version 2.0.0B10 of Customize would fix this issue however, it seems that it did not. At least for Doug it didn’t. We did however find a solution that did work for Doug (thanks to a comment left by Critter)!! YAY! I thought I would pass it along to see if it will work for any of you…it is worth a try! All you need to do is go into Installer and search for SUID Lib Fix 1.0 (it is through the BigBoss source). Once you have found it, just install it and voilà Customize should work. As soon as Doug installed it, Customize worked. He did not have to uninstall and reinstall Customize or anything like that. Give it a try and let us know your results!

  1. thanks

  2. I’ve been running Customize on 1.1.4 in the past without a problem and I had to recently restore mine and put customize back on and never has it crashed until the other day even before the new update of Customize. Adding the SUID Lib Fix 1.0 worked like a charm!!! Thanks!

  3. If the above fix doesn’t work for you follow the steps from this URL. read “Getting Summerboard and Customize to work properly” the instructions work. I had the same problem with Customize. Although I had to do this before I used the SUID Lib Fix 1.0. All I am saying is if just running the SUID Lib Fix 1.0 doesn’t work Follow the instructions in the link.

  4. Many Thanks to Brooke.
    i had the same problem and I just run SUID Lib fix 1.0 and its fixed.

    Hurrye !!!

  5. I hope the Jailbreaking Devs crack 2.0 in June. Eventhough SpickChicken says he will place “Customize” in the Apple Apps store. I want the latest and greatest to show up my friends with Crackberries and imitation iPhones (Verzion & Sprint). Customize was the first reason I jailbroke my phone.

  6. I had the first public beta of customize 2 and have done all the updAtes on a 114 phone , and did this update yesterday and hand no problems at all. (i only applied the SUID lib fix once back on 2.0b2)

    good luck everyone

  7. SUID Lib fix is a definite must-install for anyone on 1.1.3/4. It fixes problems with so many apps. Props to Critter.

  8. Hi, this is my first time installing customize.. when i open it, they asked me to create an account? what is it for?

  9. Worked for me!! Thanks!

  10. im having issues with customize,
    I have just updated customize to 10beta but its only showing 6 of about 14 themes. They are there as I have ssh to the phone and can see them but customize won’t pick them up. I was messing about ready to re install customize 5 beta and tried once more bust customize couldn’t connect to the server but it showed all the themes. I applied the one I wanted but now it only sees the 6 I could before

    1.1.4 here running 9 beta

  11. Hi there: I have no problems with the new version of Customize on my 1.1.4 iPhone.
    However, if I go to Install and later to Themes (Customize) I have only 2 themes to Install; where I could fine more??

    Thank you so much

    This has fixed the crashing problem. I have not tested if any changes actually take. I also looked for sound sets like the video game one in the list under “Themes: Customize” and did not find it. I must not have all my sources or something or is Customize sound sets in a different area in installer?

  13. HI there, if I go to Themes (Customize) I have only 3 to install, where I can install more themes??
    Thank you so much

  14. THANKYOU GUYS! Just restored my phone and thought it was only me, been driving me crazy. Nice one!(: x

  15. yay how long have i wated to have customize on my ipod- and now there it is!

  16. i can confirm that fix, everything works like a charm! thanks a lot;)

  17. This is what works for me..
    I don’t have BSD, I have Cydia installed on my iphone. Thats why I don’t want to install all the files in suidlibfix, for that I extracted the suidlibfix file, which has 2 command line :-

    chmod +s /usr/bin/login

    mkdir -p /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin && ln -s /usr/lib /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib

    All you hve to do is log in using ssh and execute the above command lines. Customize works like charm after that. No need of the complete suidlibfix package. Maybe Customize app should include this fix in the new release…

  18. Thanks again AIS… keep up the good work

    hi i was running modded customize on my 1.1.4 ziphone jailbroken phone with no probs ….. BUT when i installed customize 2.0 last night it DIDNT crash but i could not find any of my customize apps i had installed before like battary headers and the weather backgrounds etc. has anyone had this probably ? and is there away to get the apps on there? thanks for any help.

  20. Yeah it worked for now! I’ve got a Ipod Touch 1.1.4.
    Don’t want to get problems again with customize -.-

  21. MaverickC17 says

    2.0 must be different, it connects to the Internet.

    How do you put sounds and images into Customize 2.0?

    The old way of downloading sound and image sets under “Themes: Customize” in Installer does not work.

    Need Help!

  22. Is anyone else having trouble making icons invisible? In version 2.0 I’m trying to make my Phone and SMS icons invisible but when I exit Customize and restart summerboard, the icons are still there.

  23. VinnieDM says


    When I try to install the suid lib fix, it gives an error “main script execution failed!” also the flashlight from STE used to work but the last few days it won’t start either… same for the game “lights off” try to open but goes back to summerboard…

  24. Customize would never affect other apps especially not apps that never work outside their folder.

    @Alex – If your in version 2.0 you would know customize does not even try to hide apps you are either using poof or hidepod. These do not interfere with customize they work with a com.applespringboard.plist or some weird name, can’t remember.
