    Of course, you can. It's all there in the posts & there are tutorials on this site as well. Ok, google i-funbox. Download it. Connect to your iPod touch via USB. You'll then be able to view your iPod's file system.

    Try this:

    var / lib / apt / lists ---> Delete all files (except the "partial" folder)

    &

    /var/lib/dpkg/updates --> Delete all the numbered files. 0000,0001,0002 etc.

    I've noticed Cydia 'crash' (just shutting down and going back to the home screen) when I lack decent WiFi reception. Showing the WiFi strength as a number, instead of the bars, sort of backs me up on that conclusion. In areas where I'm in the <-50 range, Cydia will 'crash' or come up with errors and ask me to reload. Above -40 and it's smooth as butter. It seems that a 'full' WiFi indicator bar has quite a large range...as in...it could be showing 3 full bars, switch to numeric view and I'm in -50's.

    Just something to chew on...

    You should explain how to switch the display bar into numerical, you know in case someone comes along with no idea how, and instead of opening a new tab and searching, they could be like oh there it is.

    Sure, np.

    Open up Cydia, tap "Featured Packages", scroll down to the Free Extensions category and download SBSettings. Once that's installed, you open it by swiping your finger across the top bar - where the time is. After opening SBSettings, look down left for the "More" icon and go into it. Then down bottom is "Extras & Options" - select this category. Once inside, the second option down is labelled "Numeric Wi-Fi" - turn this on. In a second or two, a numerical display of signal strength (usually negative so far as I've seen and sitting next to my router, it's at about -30) will pop up replacing the bar indicator.

    That's it. 8)
