    Do you still have the 300 mb limitation?
    After you fix that with the ssh it should also restore iTunes functionality...if you did all that fine I guess you should just restore it and start over.
    Start the iPod into recovery mode (some button combination when restarting, or type "enterrecovery" into iPhuc) so that it shows the usb cord and the itunes logo in the iPod's display, and restore from there and jailbreak again.

    So is Installer.app compatible with the touch? It says on the website:

    "This does not work with iPod Touch or iPhone firmware 1.1.1 at this time."

    Does it?

    If you're getting error 18, then you have no choice but to do a forced restore. And progress you make now would just be wasting your time.

    Hold sleep and power buttons until the iPod both powers off and restarts again.
    Once the Apple logo is on screen, keep holding the Home button, but let go of the sleep button.
    Hold the home button for 20 - 30 seconds, until the Apple loge turns into the iTunes + cable image. Then let go of the Home buton and reconnect to itunes.

    Yes, yes it is compatible. Look in the top right corner of my iPod.
