    It worked 6 times already

    BEFORE WE BEGIN
    1.First Make sure YOU ARE NOT Connected via USB to your Mac/PC
    2.Make Sure iPhod is OFF (Hold Home and Sleep/Wake button in unison for about 5 Seconds)

    Step 1:
    Turn Your iPod on and LEAVE IT ON for about 15 minutes until the Screen Dims and you see dimmed boxes at the bottom of the screen. BOXES ONLY HAPPEN WITH SOME BOOT SCREENS

    Step 2:
    Turn the iPhod OFF

    Step 3:
    Then Turn it on. (DO NOT CONNECT IT TO YOUR COMPUTER YET) and in EXACTLY 5 Seconds Connect it to your Computer. It should boot up and show your Springboard.

    *******NEW*** METHOD 2:
    NEED A FAST, NO WIFI SSH CLIENT? TRY iPHONE BROWSER. WORKS LIKE A CHARM
    http://code.google.com/p/iphonebrowser/downloads/listMust have ssh installed

    1. turn ipod or iphone off
    2. connect cable
    3. turn on ipod iphone
    4. listen for ding dong (window) or what ever the mac sound is
    5. ssh to your ipod iphone
    6. goto /var/mobile/
    7. rename Applications to Applications2
    8. wait 5 second and your springboard will pop up
    9. now rename Applications back and restart

    DO NOT FREAK IF YOU SEE SOME APPS ARE MISSING

    If this happens a manual sync in iTunes WILL BRING BACK YOUR APPS,IN NORMAL STATE, because the apps are still downloaded on your device, Just not Visible.

    Now if you don't want this to happen again go here to find out how.
