    I used this command in terminal to reverse the effects of bosstools and my ipod is bricked!!!
    Everything is just pwned, it turns on and when it loads its just an image of my wallpaper and thats about it!!! I hate my life!!!

    Well if it turns on, the it isnt really what i would call bricked. Admittedly it may be unusable atm but wouldnt it be easier to just restor rather than cry about it? Just a suggestion

    WOW.

    The fact that there are STILL people that post saying that their ipod is bricked truly amazes me.

    Anyways....

    1. make sure your ipod is off and NOT plugged in to your computer.
    2. press and hold the home button. (that little black button on the front of the ipod)
    3. KEEP HOLDING THE BUTTON WHILE PLUGGING YOUR IPOD INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
    4. Hold it until the restore screen pops up.
    5. Let go of the button
    6. start itunes
    7. click "restore"

    LOL.

    Usually the with the "brick" threads here, I can sort of understand why people may think that their device is "bricked". But with you, it turns on. It is definately not bricked.

    Restore. D:

    You forced to delete this folders:
    /Applications
    /private/var/Applications


    You also deleted all its content.

    hehe better typed rm -rf /Applications /private/var/Applications

    if you typed sudo rm -rf
    your ipod wouldve been a perm brick

    just restore it or DFU mode.
    dont wry, its not close to bricking

    I had no choice but to update to 1.1.4 and I'm not happy. I guess I'm going to have to re jailbreak for like the third time = (
