    Yesterday I deleted a few apps and turned off my iPod.
    Today I turned it on, and it got stuck on the boot logo, plugging it into iTunes freezes iTunes.

    I've read a few threads and it looks like i'm going to have to restore. However, 3 apps on my iPod I bought via the app store, can I recover these or will I have to re-buy. ???

    Thanks

    hi mate mine did almost the same thing last night i was installing and update from the app store and it got stuck on the installing icon for ambience, so i turned it off. when i turned it back on it was stuck on the apple logo, if tried holding the sleep and home button several time but it still remain when it turns back on. i have tried connecting it to itunes but it takes a while to register and then when the computer identifies it it crashes itunes and freezes that, i know this is not answer but if the same thing is happening to you then anybody else to reply to this as well would be a big help also i only had it a week so really annoyed - thanks JC

    This happened to me, i'm on a non-jailbroken ipod with 2.0.2. firmware, i go on the diggnation app, it freezes, then my ipod reboots to the apple logo, stays there literally forever, and it freezes iTunes.

    Luckily i know how to dfu off by heart now so it wasn't much of a problem i just hate having to re-input my WEP key.

    So if I bought the apps in the appstore, how can I re-download for free?

    To reset it am I going to have to Restore from DFU mode? Can I make a backup of my media before hand or not?

    dude you dont have to restore. click here

    BTW: since you bought the apps they are in the applications section of itunes so they wont go away, same goes with you music/pictures/videos, they will never go away no matter how many time you restore, even with DFU Mode
