    Wen I open my installer, it crashes shortly after I launch it, around 10-15 seconds after. I have had this happen to me numerous times, and to no evail have I been able to fix it. I have forcfully shut it off, and I try rejailbreaking it using ziphone, but that sometimes freezes, and I have to restore it.

    I'm running on 1.1.4 32gb iPod touch if that helps


    P.S. If there is already a forum on this then u can still yell at me for being a dumass, but I looked and didnt find one.

    P.P.S- I'm known for being impatient

    Did you make sure you went into Contacts and typed random crap for 15-30 seconds before going into Installer?

    I think you might have to delete the remotepackages.plist or something like that.

    Because it's a neccessary step after a Jailbreak. I doubt this is your problem, but it could still be if you didn't do it.

    Do other apps freeze often?

    Anyways, SSH in and delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Installer/RemotePackages.plist. Just delete it, it doesn't harm your iPod at all, and see if it doesn't crash.
