    Hi, I'm on an iJailbroken 1.1.3 iPod Touch with BSD Sub, SSH, Term-vt100, the whole shebang.
    I tried installing the BSD Term Fix from the sleepers repo, but it left the cog spinning for a really long time. Knowing what was coming, I held down home and sleep, and sure enough, it put me into recovery mode! Normally I would just boot up iNdependence, but it just stays at Connected to iPhone...1.1.3 firmware...bla bla bla. I can SSH in, and tried deleting Term-vt100...still no luck.
    Is there anything else I can delete to boot it out, or should I just cut my losses, back everything up with SSH, and redo the jailbreak?

    Get the correct version of iPHUC for your OS and run the following:
    cmd setenv auto-boot true
    cmd saveenv
    cmd fsboot

    You should be fine now.
    The only thing you can't escape is DFU recovery mode after a WTF file has been loaded into memory, as I found out the hard way..

    By the way, I think the Termfix is /bin/termcap, I'm not sure of the location though.
    Be careful about deleting it.
    I think that's your problem, not Term-Vt100.

    Edit: It looks like deleting it would be fine, it's not in the ramdisk.
    If deleting helps, reinstall BSD Subsystem and stuff, or you may run into problems with bash/sh/zsh.

    iPhuc won't work on OS X 10.5. Do you think I can try deleting bin/termcap? I really would like to avoid restoring, as I won't be near a computer again for a little while.

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't see that.

    It works on 10.5, I'm pretty sure.
    Try this one.

    It's just various kinds of C with no GUI, so it should.
    Your version of iTunes may mess up some private functions, but as long as it's in recovery mode, commands should work.
    I've sent raw commands to my iPod and I'm on iTunes 7.6 for Windows.
    You might need readline though, I'm not sure.

    There was no /bin/termcap or /usr/bin/termcap, so I'm trying iPHuc. Thanks for your help.

    Actually, I think it's /etc/termcap.
    I had to start up my iPod, I was too lazy to go get it to look before.
    The package is here if you need it.

    After you kick it out of recovery, just try reinstalling it like that.
    Also, delete /var/root/.profile.

    I bet this is that stupid handofgod call, hopefully it gets patched out by the Dev Team or someone else soon.

    Well, except iBrickr doesn't work on Macs, and I already said iNdependence, the Mac equivalent, won't boot it, so...

    Well, have you tried iPHUC?
    There's really no alternative, as far as I know..

    And this is probably what happened:
    void AppleMRVL868x::checkForStalledCommandQueue(): Command Queue stalled for 11000 ms, invoking HoG (count = 1)
    [1049.553859833] : void AppleMRVL868x::invokeTheHandOfGod(bool): Chip Failure, Smacking WiFi chip! (count = 1 / 1)

    It sends you into restore mode and was added in 1.1.3.
