    Okay, I have an iPod Touch 2g. I backed up all my launch daemons and deleted these:
    Code:
    com.apple.DumpPanic.plist
    com.apple.ReportCrash.XXXXXXXXX.plist (There were 5)
    com.apple.CrashHouseKeeping.plist
    com.apple.aslmanager.plist
    com.apple.syslogd.plist
    com.apple.powerlog.plist
    com.apple.stackshot.server.plist
    com.apple.chud.chum.plist
    com.apple.chud.pilotfish.plist
    com.apple.psctl.plist
    com.apple.AddressBook.plist
    com.apple.datamigrator.plist
    com.apple.racoon.plist
    com.apple.MobileInternetSharing.plist
    com.apple.AOSNotification.plist
    com.apple.AdminLite.plist
    com.apple.mobile.obliteration.plist
    Edited: com.apple.itunesstored.plist
    com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    I know that none of these could not cause an iPod 2G 3.1.2 to fail, I may have deleted something else. I cannot access iFile, SSH, or iFunBox, so I can not restore my Daemon backups.

    Is my only option to restore? I'm fine with that.

    EDIT: My iPod is now in DFU mode.

    You probably forgot to set the permissions on the LaunchDaemons folder to 775
    Only Solution is to restore.

    An easier way to edit the launch daemons is purchase ifile or download mobilefinder on Cydia.

    Yeah. I'm sorry to say that your only option is to restore. But for future reference, you can get a tweak from Cydia called "Remove LaunchDaemons." This tweak removes all of the safe LaunchDaemons and creates a log of what it deletes. Then if you for what ever reason decide to uninstall it, it uses the log to restore the removed LaunchDaemons back. This tweak actually works and is a whole lot safer than removing LaunchDaemons manually. I think that you have to add a specific repo to Cydia for that though. So just search it in Google and you'll find it. Hope this helps and sorry that you have to restore.

    Thanks. But I restored to iOS4 via the safe method (DFU mode) and now it wont let me sync music, podcasts, OR videos.

    With errors like this:
    "Attempting to copy to the disk 'Michael's iPod' failed. There are too many files open currently."
    and
    "iTunes could not copy 'xxxxx' to the iPod 'Michael's iPod' because an unknown error occurred (-42)."
    and
    "The iPod 'Michael's iPod' cannot be synced. An internal device error occurred."
    all on the same file.

    For some apps it doesn't sync either.

    Help? Is downgrading an option?

    don't worry about the too many files open currently program. i had that too and it fixed by itself. just restart your computer and ipod and then resync. and copy over fewer files to your ipod at a time. and ALSO, have fewer programs open on your computer, it for some reason messes the connection with the ipod up on mine.

    Can I ask something? I'm not sure how to change permission. :/

    Do I have to change only the folder or all the files?

    I'm pretty sure 755 is:
    Read,Write,Exec,
    Read,Exec,
    Read,Exec,
    in iFile, right?

    Nvm, I set permissions via SSH and it still got messed up. I don't know why. Have to restore AGAIN.

    Run Redsn0w on your device (preferably the boot tethered option. It temporarily loads all the daemons from the hacked ipsw.
