    Hello, this is my first ever iptf post.

    I discovered this glitch at 2:30 AM, when deleting my fake cydia icon, after I discovered that redsn0w was released!

    1: Create a home screen bookmark in Safari (any page)
    2: Move your icons so that your new bookmark is the only icon in the dock
    3: Delete the icon, while it is still in the dock

    Your iPod will have a memory fault or something, and your dock will disappear!

    This was done on an iPod touch 2G with firmware 2.2, but I'm pretty sure it will work on any device running 2.X firmware.

    Update: Thanks to switch, for reminding me.
    To get the dock back, restart your iPod/iPhone

    i found a glitch like this

    1. lock your ipod/iphone
    2. start holding down power button
    3. slide the slide to unlock slider so that the "slide to power off " slider appears just after you unlock it.
    4. springboard will not load correctly ( whatever page of apps you were when you locked on will be blank , no dock or anything)
    5. now go to one of your other pages and make the apps all wiggle by holding one down (make it so you can move the apps)
    6.move it to your blank page of apps and it will look like all the apps are having a seizure or somthin.

    Try it, ill try to make a youtube video or how to do it.

    Someone made a thread about this a few weeks ago. It's a nice find though.
