    Ok so here it goes,
    I recently upgraded to the new 2.2.1 after the new quickpwn just came out for windows 2.2.5. So I was in iTunes messing around and noticed that more memory than usual was being taken by my jailbroken apps and games than there should be. I went into my iPod with total commander and was searching around in the stash folder and realized i had two of every folder, all my apps from the previous version 2.2 were still on there as well as the new apps installed from 2.2.1. So trying to clean my Touch up i started deleting like a dumbass!

    Word of caution don't ever delete your apps folder.

    Anyway for those of you who might make this same mistake here is the easy fix.
    When you can't even boot your iPod hold down the power button to turn it off completely. Once its turned off hold down the power button and connect the USB cable to it, it should turn on and boot into recovery mode! Then iTunes will recognize it and you will be able to fully restore it.

    Good luck to those of you who made this same mistake.

    I will monitor this thread for anyone who might have made this same mistake.

    Also a quick side note- After I restored my iPod, I noticed there was still about 100mb. of data on my iPod that I wanted to clean out... On the iPod I went to Erase all content and settings. Here's how: Connect iPod touch to your computer or a power
    adapter. Choose General > Reset and tap “Erase All Content and Settings.”
    This feature resets all settings to their defaults and removes all your information and
    media on your iPod touch by overwriting the data stored on iPod touch.
    Important: You can’t use iPod touch while data is being overwritten. This can take one
    to four hours or more, depending on the storage capacity of your iPod touch.

    A Long ass time!
