    Tip for all of you: BACKUP, I didn't do it enough, now I accidently deleted a folder.
    Well, my iPod is working, also after a respring, but I'm afraid it won't after a reboot. I accidently deleted private/var/Preferences folder.
    Can someone explain to me what I've done? if this is an important folder? or if I can get it back somehow?

    it will be fine, normally the iPhoneOS recreates all of these files. and actually rebooting will recreate all these files

    I already rebooted my iPod twice, still can't connect to the internet.
    Is there anything I can do that is not restore?

    Ok, I guess I will restore... damn it stupid SSH.
