    Well, I donwloaded the Java binary, uninstalled it, and reinstalled it lol. But to reinstall it, you have to delete a file that unistalling doesn't remove. Well I deleted the wrong file.

    My apps all kept crashing, so I rebooted my ipod - big mistake. Now, I can't just do a restore because it won't get past the apple logo. Any suggestions?

    Plug your ipod ino your computer and hold the home button while you see the apple logo (when it starts to boot) like you are going to do a force restore and it might boot right, but other wise you may have to do a force restore.

    You can't screw you iPod by a software mod. ^^, A forced restore it's the solution of all "Brick" problems

    to force restore it, turn it on and as SOON as you see the apple logo come up, hold the HOME button. it should pop up with the "connect to itunes" thing on screen. if it doesnt work, hold the HOME button and the POWER button at the same time until it turns off, and then keep holding it until you see the apple logo again. then release the power button and keep holding the home button

    So you could like ssh into your ipod, delete every single file on it, and do a force restore and everything would be fine? I'm just asking because there are files create from apps that aren't deleted when you restore(isn't that the reason they jailbroke 1.1.2?)

    Aw dang I did it again, I really need to stop trying to get rid of all the iPhone files that the touch doesn't use lol...

    Yup -- you could delete it all, and a force restore should work. I'm guessing Apple hard coded the restore into whatever ROMs may be on the motherboard. In short, a force restore for the iPod Touch is equivalent of restoring a "ghost" image for a PC -- It puts it right back to the way it was from the factory.
