    Okay I don't think anyone made a similar thread to this so here I go.

    I first encountered this problem after installing Caterpillar 1.1. I didn't know what to do so, as any normal person would do, restored.

    But there is a simpler way to counter to problem (simpler than hard reboot)

    Whenever your Touchscreen is working:
    1 Open installer (while connected to Wi-Fi)
    2 Tap install and scroll down
    3 Tap utilities and scroll down
    4 Install either killBoard (made by Skylar i believe) or Respring, no need to install both
    5 Hit home and your iPod will respring

    Now you will see killBoard/Respring on your home screen.
    Whenever your iPod's Touchscreen is "disabled", simply tap the app (killBoard/Respring)
    Your iPod will respring, thus fixes the problem.

    *** IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KEEP KILLBOARD/RESPRING ON HOME SCREEN
    Why? Because if your touchscreen is disabled and you put killboard/respring in a category fold, you will not be able to use killboard/respring
    Also do not hide the app. I do not know if you can use Dock.app while the touchscreen is disabled. If you CAN use it, then hide killboard/respring and use dock to open it.

    Btw, i figured out this process by myself. Did NOT copy someone else.

    I think you should recommend putting it in the dock. Then its always visible.

    touchscreen maybe not work. but you can still open apps
    when you open killboard/respring, your ipod immediately resprings, thus no need to press anything within the app.
