(I'm on ziphone jailbroken 16gb 1.1.4) Okay, I got the Spinning Wheel of Death. So, in desperation, I replaced my N54AP.plist. No change. Next, I replaced my com.apple.SpringBoard.plist file to see if that made a difference. I reboot the iPod, no spinning circle of death! But it stays on the apple logo. Forever. Only this time, iTunes recognizes it as a completely normal iPod. It will sync to it. It can take data off it. I can SSH to it. But the screen stays at the apple logo. I put it into recovery mode. Then, I use Ziphone to change it back to normal mode. This time, the iPod stays with the "connect to itunes" picture, but once again, iTunes, and Ziphone recognize it as in normal mode. For reasons which I can't really talk too much about, even though I can back it up from SSH, I really need to NOT RESTORE. I have been working on an app, and through blind luck I got settings correct and I don't think I'll be able to do it again. So, I'm begging you, please! HELP ME!!!
