    First of all, I searched for the answer to this - Nothing helped.

    I have a friends iPod Touch (16 GB). I jaibroke it using iphone.unlock.no GUI ZiPhone jailbreak. Works perfectly. So I install 15 - 20 apps, reboot, everything works. I install 15 - 20 more, and when it tries to respring, it gets stuck ath the spinning wheel? Any ideas?

    WHAT HASN'T WORKED:
    Simple rebooting (stuck at apple logo)
    I have enough space (I used BossTools) so thats not the problem.
    My own 8GB iPod has no troubles

    Could it be the jailbreak? I mean, i dont think it should make too much of a big deal?

    It is not bricked. Don't scare people like that. It's an asshole move.\

    Anyway, Home+Sleep, hold it for a while and restore your iPod to 1.1.1
    That should work. What firmware are you running? 1.1.1 already?

    OK.

    I hope you had SSH installed on your iPod and had it activated. Its a lot easier using that method. OK. If you had SSH installed and activated, do this:

    1. Download Network Magic from here.
    2. Install it by following the onscreen steps.
    3. Set it up according to what it says. It should detect all devices on your Network. Find your iPod and get the IP Address from the details tab of it.
    Note: If you never had Network Magic and no other computer on your network has one, your iPod will show up as Network Device. After you find it right click it and select Change name and icon.
    4. Log into your iPod via SSH.
    5. Delete every app that you installed from the Applications folder but DON'T delete the official apps. (If you accidentaly do, I'll give you a copy of mine).
    6. Reboot your iPod.
    Note: If your iPod goes into Restore Mode Download iBrickr from here, exract it, run iphoneinterface.exe, type each of these commands. Press enter after each. It should look like this:

    Code:
    [COLOR="Red"][B]r_recovery:[/B][/COLOR] [COLOR="Black"]setenv auto-boot true[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="Red"][B]r_recovery:[/B][/COLOR] [COLOR="Black"]saveenv[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="Red"][B]r_recovery:[/B][/COLOR] [COLOR="Black"]fsboot[/COLOR]
    Note: Whats in red is whats already there. Don't type it.



    You can now close the window, disconnect you iPod, and reboot it by holding down sleep and home. When it goes off, let go of the Home button. When the apple logo comes up let go of the power button. Thats it.

    You see, the problem is: 1.1.3 has an app limit! I'm pretty sure that the Installer team is looking for a way around this.

    Thanks so much - that completely fixed my problem. However, just curious on that app limit - how big of an app limit is there? So I dont have this happen to me again...
