    Ok today I kinda got sick of my landscape springboard and I wanted to change it back. So I went on my computer got the info.plist file from my ipod and tried to delete the code that made it horizontal. I deleted the stuff that I inputted from the, "OMG, Landscape Springboard" Thread. I then saved it and put it back using cyberduck (I am on a mac). On my ipod I respringed and it put me on my homescreen. All looked good to me! 1 second later it resprung and I was in shock. Oh Sh*t, I though to myself. Again it kept respringing and respringing and respringing. I had just broken my iPod Touch. I tried sshing into my ipod... and it worked! I went frantically online sending Kiks and another guy a private message if they could give me a info.plist file to change it back. Kiks responded he's on 3.0 so he couldn't ssh. The other guy didn't and still hasn't responded. I posted a thread called, "Info.plist" in the ipod touch customization requests section. Nobody responded for a few hours.

    I wait
    I wait
    I wait

    Finally ma bro itaihay gave me a download link in the thread. I sshed into my ipod and it just loaded! What the heck! For some reason my ipod like stopped giving out the connection. I restarted it. It went to the springboard and I tried sshing again, finally it worked! I went to the springboard.app in the coreservices library. I dragged the file in and it asked me to rewrite, I of course said yes, but all of a sudden the ssh connection stopped working. I restarted the ipod again and later I found out that the ssh only workes for the first 30 seconds, before it stops. I restarted again! This time I set up for cyberduck to respawn in the springboard.app directly when I ssh in. I get in and I immediately drag the info.plist file in. I rewrite. Then I go to my ipod waiting for the ipod to respring again. It resprings and it still doesn't work! What does it take to get the ipod to work! I restarted it for the 4th time. This time when I booted up I expected to see it respringing, thinking I'm screwed, better just restore now. But, it worked. Isn't it epic? Thanks itaihay!
