    ok, i have a MAJOR problem. I SSH'd into my ipod with WinSCP and made my way to the system springboard strings. I left to go use the restroom after starting to edit the file and my friend sitting next to the comp decided to mess around with the file. Now the string is messed up even though i tried to set it back to the normal settings by typing the right code back into the string. That didn't work. Now all my screen displays are the all caps codes. For example, on the slider all it says now is AWAY_SLIDE_UNL...I can't restore my ipod because iTunes keeps saying it can't contact the update server. Is this because of the screwed up string? Can it be fixed? If so, how? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
    P.S. My cydia keeps crashing, but now Customize seems to work, but i cant edit system strings through that because they wont show up

    You're good don't panic. Try the restore again, but this time take off of your Anitvirus and try to restore again. It should work.

    I don't think you're allowed to post stuff like that. It's copy written.
