    Okay so today I opened Cydia on my 3.1.2 jailbroken iPod touch and I saw that I had like 14 or so updates, and a pop up box told me to "Update Essential", "Update Completely", or "Ignore (temporary)". I chose the "Update Completely" option, and when it was done, it closed Cydia. I opened up Cydia again because I was looking to download some new stuff.

    On the Cydia homepage, there was some peach-colored box at the top that told me something about my ID number and gave me some sort of code with numbers and letters. I scrolled down to see the rest of it when I accidentally clicked the option where it said something about "hating jailbreaking". After accidentally clicking that option, it refreshed my Cydia homepage and the box was no longer there...

    What was this? I didn't have enough time to read the whole thing, so please help. I'm really worried about this.

    might be OK, but any cydia bugs may be related to this.
    Note, where it says 'iPhone 3G' at the top, it detects your current device.

    Yes! It was that. Except that I recall there was also another longer box with a combination of some sort.

    Are you saying that I should have pressed "Make my life easier, thanks!"? :/
    And is there anyway I can get that box back?

    Not that I know of, However, there may be a computer method. If in doubt, use twitter to contact @saurik.

    Okay, thanks. I might try to contact Saurik. But is my iPod touch screwed now that I pressed the "I hate jailbreaking. Go away." option?

    Not at all, it's just that your SHSH blobs are not on Saurik's server. You can easily back them up some other way, but I am not familiar of it.

    So if you were ever to restore, you'd need SHSH blobs but since you pressed the "I hate jailbreaking" option, you'll need to do it a different way. I believe a tutorial may be found on YouTube, or here if someone is skilled enough.

    Good luck!

    Thanks =) I'm a noobie, so I have a bunch of questions about this:

    1) Is your SHSH blob a file, or is it a combination?
    2) If you backed up your SHSH files now, would you be forced to rejailbreak or restore or anything like that?
    3) Why do you need SHSH blobs when you restore? I restored my iPod touch about a year ago, and iTunes didn't ask for SHSH blobs.

    1) Not exactly sure..
    2) Nope.

    Maybe a reboot, but that's it.
    3) If you want to restore it to a certain firmware that Apple is no longer signing.

    You'll need something to do it that way. Video 1--Video 2
