    Ok, Some people are having problems with the whole "Oh Crap! I pressed reboot! I don't Wanna reinstall the patch!!!"

    Well. This is a bit late, but for those newly jailbreaking, or even those who did not install winterboard in fear of a reboot *Even with the boothelpers out now*, here's how to install without reboot.

    1. Go to Cydia and install SbSettings. Wait for it to install and respring. (Cydia does it for you.)

    2. Slide your finger across the top of the screen, and a menu will come down. Make sure there is a respring option in the menu. (Will come in handy later)

    3. Download and Install Winterboard. Wait until it is done and all that good stuff. Now, it will ask you to reboot your device. Do not press that tempting little button.

    4. Slide your finger across the top of the screen again to open up sbsettings. Touch the respring icon.

    And voila, you have yourself a non-rebooted ipod touch with winterboard installed. It will work just fine. Well, it did with my testing of the technique.

    To those that needed this, Your Welcome.

    Well, all you guys are quite welcome. I'm glad that I could help.


    And if I had figured this out sooner then I would have posted it.

    ok just a question but if i do install something that needs a reboot and i'm on a 2g and no way of not rebooting... can i just do it and then when i try to turn on the ipod just put it in dfu and run the code.... when my jbroken ipod has loaded... lets say winterboard will have successfully installed and rebooted?

    I tried this when i first jailbroke, and after installing a theme and applying it,
    none of the changes showed up.
    After i restarted, the theme showed up.
