    Since this morning whenever I have tried to install any applications or make any updates to previous applications, the indicator on the installer app has reached roughly 90% and the screen turns white and the iPod returns to the springboard
    I've made sure this is not a space issue as I have removed every app until the only apps I have left are the original 11, installer and several apps which say "main script execution failed" when atempted to be removed

    I believe at one point I may have completely filled the space for apps so this may be a cause
    is there a solution before I resort to a full restore?

    The apps are failing to install because you have filled up all the space on the iPod available to add apps. The fix would be to move all your apps to the Media Partition and create a shortcut to it.

    Open up SSH and type the following. Each new line is a new command, so wait for the first top finish first.
    cd /
    mv /Applications /private/var/Applications
    ln -s /private/var/Applications Applications

    You're not increasing app space, you are actually moving all of your apps to a new location that happens to have a lot more space (up to 14.5GB's more space).

    So technically it is increasing the space, ah?
