    My iPod decided to reboot in the process of installing themes from cydia and now cydia won't launch. Period.

    Can I re-run redsn0w without losing data? Or can I reinstall cydia some other way?

    Do you have OpenSSh istalled? if you do, you can try going into your ipod data, deleting your current Cydia.app folder and putting in a new cydia folder. You should easily be able to download the Cydia data on the web somewhere.
    I can't guarantee that it'll work, but its worth a try.

    ^^ I wouldnt try that. My bet is it would be pretty hard to do that/ PLUS you would need to already have guiCache. And it wuld be pretty hard to find Cydia.tar on the web.

    Just restore, you won't loose anything that is sync'ed to your PC. Cydia apps will be lost.

    If you have Pocket God it could be connected.

    I fixed it. The dpkg command got interupted. Fixed by using dpkg in Terminal.
