I have had this problem multiple times and am sick of it. I keep having to restore my iPod touch. I'm getting very annoyed of having to keep restoring it and then reinstalling everything. I just had the problem again can someone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it?! I was just installing stuff on my iPod and also manually adding some apps to my ipod. I restarted my ipod and now all my icons have vanished! All i see is my dock, my background and that's it. I can access music by using the home shortcut. WHAT DO I DO?
