    I have a Jailbroken 8gb Ipod Touch with v1.1.2 on it. I recently opened the Install.app and saw that I could upgrade the app itself to v3. So I started to download it, but it quickly backed me out and threw me out on the home springboard. Now, when I even try to open the Install.app, the ipod starts to open the program (like a white screen), and then throws me back out.
    I've tried resetting it a dozen times and would like to find an alternative method to restoring it.
    Thanks for the future help,

    hmm, looks like you might not have enough room left on the OSX partition of your ipods memory.
    id sugest installing BossTool and seeing how much room you have left on it, and if not deleting apps that you dont use all the time, or start moving applications onto the ipod partition of the hard drive.
    just make sure that you know what your doing when it comes to moving applications cause you can really mess up your ipod.

    if you have anymore questions feel free to ask! i hope this works out for you.

    Is there any way to get Boss Tool without going through the install.app? Because I'm not kidding when I say I can't get it open- it flashes white and then throws me back out onto the springboard.

    Well, I finally figured out winSCP and was able to clear off a few applications, but I still can't open the installer.
