Now, before you delete this one because someone else posted it, listen to my story and then you can flame me. But please, either help me out or direct me to someone who can. My iPod touch has a ton (about 400 MB worth) of applications. Most of them have themes, preferences, and add-ons that would take hours to locate, reinstall, and so on. It also has 3 GB worth of videos and music--that'd take a few hours to sync back. Needless to say, a full restore is out of the question. Okay, here's the scene: I'm messing with my iPod and go to Customize. I click on one of the sliders, but it freezes. Naturally, I turn it off. When it turns back on, it starts freezing again. So I Power+Home button reset. Unfortunately, this time the iPod begins flashing between the splash screen (Apple logo) and the turn off screen (slide to power off) really fast. At this point, I can soft reset, but that does no good. So I try to just turn off the screen. All it does is dim, and doesn't completely shut off. What really doesn't help is that it is not connected to Wi-Fi--so I can't use WinSCP. What I can do is Sync with iTunes, but the iPod does nothing besides flash the screens. I know what you're thinking: did you search this topic before posting? I tried--but the server was too busy. In fact, it was a miracle that it let me click "New Thread." If anyone can offer any advice, I'm willing to try anything. Special resets, special programs, anything. You can also reach me at email@example.com. Thanks in advance, -Lenz UPDATE: It seems to work, but NOT COMPLETELY! In fact, it doesn't do much at all. Whenever I touch an app, it freezes, so I can't touch anything. I can, however, use the home and power buttons. It still dims when I push the power button. I copied all of the Application files to my computer, just in case. I also wrote down all of my apps so I could reinstall them (hopefully a last resort). Here are a few things I downloaded and installed lately: Black & Red Skin (seems to work fine) Screenshot (downloaded ages ago, but I recently turned it on, and it didn't work. When the iPod broke, the two buttons popped up....hmm.... I deleted this app using WinSCP.) TTR Theme: Didn't work. I pasted them in the correct directory, but nothing. This app (and media file) was moved to my computer.
