    Maybe your iPod doesn't have enought Memory for it to run. Is your device jailbroken?
    Do you have lots of jailbroken apps?

    ok.. here is ur problem... well... not necessarily the problem but the solution. FIRST! jailbreak. once jailbroken, go and download SBsettings from Cydia. once done, open up that and hit the more button. then once that opens, hit Extras that the bottom of the screen. Then hit the first button: "Fix User Dir Permissions"..

    that will fix it.. i know this will work because if u go back a page and hit help, then scroll down, the details give this as an example... here.. this is what the whole "Extras" sections says

    there u have it. hope this helped.

    oh.. and u ask, why SBsettings over Bossprefs? SBsettings has a bunch of toggles and stuff that u can access any time. you don't have to quit out of ur current app to get to any of these...

    In BossPrefs or SBSettings, tap Fix User Dir Permissions. Respring, and it should be back to normal.

    I still have this problem! Please, somebody has to be able to help! I have not had mail in months. I hate Using safari to check my gmail. I did, however, try deleting my mail folder in privat/var/mobile/library that got it to download but then it crashed and got perma stuck in safe mode. Mail works in safe mode only. I re deleted the mail folder and reset it now it's back to normal but mail is still broke. It gets to the screen to create a mail account and then starts to d/load. Then crashes and I have to delete folder all over again. So you got to help please!

    I'm guessing if this still happens try restoring it back to 2.2.1 and then don't install anything else. Just run the app to see if it crashes.
