I have been looking around the forum for a while now and have noticed that there are many posts about this sort of problem and I wanted to put an end to the confusion. This works if you try to exit safe mode and it either keeps going back into it or the springboard won't re-start. I have three possible solutions: Solution 1- 1. Delete the last program you installed via Cydia (NOT CYDELETE). 2. Go back to your springboard and tap the "Exit Safe Mode" text on the status bar then restart. Solution 2- 1. Delete last program installed, once again, via Cydia. 2. Go into Settings>General>Reset. 3. Press "Reset Settings" and agree with any pop-ups. 4. Once iPod turns off, turn it on and it should now be fine [Also, try "Reset All Settings and Content" if just settings doesn't work] Solution 3- [Use if the previous don't work or you cannot access Cydia] 1. First of all you need to get into DFU mode. 2. Restore via iTunes and setup device as a new iPod (in case files are corrupt). Hope this helps anyone with this problem.
