    I deleted /etc/master.passwd ..please help me

    I have used 1.1.1 jailbroken touch over 3 month but I made a extra stupuid mistake on my Touch several days ago.

    I just wanted to deleted the password of my Touch that I set via Terminal-100 so I deleted

    /etc/passwd and /etc/master.passwd just thinking that they are the password information I set.

    Guess what happened?

    My Touch almost turned into a brick!

    SummerBoard does not work anymore and all the musics, videos and photos disappeared.

    The finder does not work anymore and in the Settings, it catches the Wi-Fi signal but

    never actually gets connected.

    If I could use Finder, I can easily solve the problem by going to the trashcan and move the files where they wre used to be.

    HOWEVER !! I can not use Finder or FTP Programs and even the TouchExplorer ...

    Even worse, iTunes does not even recognize my touch anymore..

    I desperately need some helps from great experts here.

    Please help me.

    Unfortunately, I think there's only one word for you, and I think you know what that word is.

    Hint: It begins with the letter "Restore."

    I believe we would all agree that iPod Touch will never turn to brick if you read carefully all the post here.
