Okay i don't know what i did but i was dling some apps off of installer and it gave these weird themes might be unstable msgs and didn't install them. i then shut off my ipod and then turned it back on again and the apple logo went on for a good 20-25 seconds and then white and black lines showed up and kept flashing the apple logo. after about 20 seconds of that my screen appears but i cant touch any of my applications. i then tried the sun wheel thing in the bottom right hand corner which works and i went to an application and it would freeze up for like 20 seconds and then go to it it would work for about 5 seconds then freeze up again and then send me back to my home screen and there is a repeated msg that pops up, the one that u get when u install the 1.1.3 apps saying u can hold them and move them with the dismiss option. the weird thing is i itunes doesn't recognize it when i plug it in and i only have limited battery life left. cuteftp works but i cant seem to fix it that way:S also the hard restore doesn't work at all. i don't know what to do somebody please help me i need it bad.
