    My iPod rebooted halfway through the installation of some themes (unpacking/preparing part) and now it won't launch! I've re-run redsn0w twice!!

    My guess is there are scripts or files somewhere that got corrupted and I need to clear them out

    How can I fix this??

    Thanks!!!

    Do you have ssh or terminal installed ? This can help you solve the issue.

    OK you can try this.

    You have interupted dpkg, and thats why you can't launch cydia. You can try to install a app using dpkg without using cydia.

    Get a working 2.0 iphone app. Example iburp (random app i found in bigboss repo)

    1. copy it to the /var/mobile directory of your ipod.
    2. open terminal and beocme root: su
    3. Install iburb: dpkg -i iburp_1.1.deb

    And then respring
