    That's another (new) issue I can chalk up to Installer 4 now. I guess that's ONE way to make sure you keep using Installer.

    Is the folder for App Store still in Applications, if you can SSH into it? Is the .app still there, and are the permissions set correctly? Have you tried rebooting the device?

    You DELETED AppStore.app? May I ask why? As for the solution, if it's the jailbreak version, in the Trash folder you select the file and then use the File->Move button to move it back to the Applications folder. Hit 'paste' once you're there.

    App Store is installed when you do a restore or anything else that recopies all the system files onto the iPod. Now beyond that, make sure the permissions on the app inside the AppStore.app folder are set 755 or 777 for the App Store application. I personally suggest using WinSCP to move the file out, however.
