    I was just adding some main slider images to my ipod that I created (SSH) and when i restarted my ipod and went into customize, i couldnt do anything in the application. I tried all the other applications, and nothing works. when i click (touch) the app, it goes into it and then just....freezes or something. it does allow me to go back to the homescreen though. this happens in EVERY app, including safari, music, smb, etc. all i could think of is restarting it, but that obviously didnt help. i would really hate to have to restore and lose everything!

    Try setting permissions of the applications to 755. That sounds like it's the problem.

    I Think i know Whats wrong.
    When you Push the Sleep button,
    Can you still see your "Slide to unlock" and slider and shiiz.
    If you can than just turn your ipod off.
    And than turn it back on again.
    (Keep doing this until apps work) <----- Keep Restarting iPod, It will End up working.

    Than go into Installer, And go to all apps.
    Look for "Respring"
    And download that.

    Now whenever your ipod does that again,
    Just Tap respring and it will restart
    your springboard.

    Hope i Helped

    Uh, For me it Took like 4.
    Keep trying, If not, You could try ssh'ing into it
    And finding the app on the web.

    And What SpoonForkNife was trying to say <-- when you SSH.
    Was when you are in the applications folder
    You right click the apps. and at the bottom it has permissions.
    If its not 775, Change it to 775.
