    So......experimenting with the Poof thing. I hid all my apps. The respring barely worked, and now my iPod is frozen. I turned it off with some great effort (holding the button a long time) and everytime I turn it on, it freezes at the loading screen. Any solutions?

    I'm not sure, but do you think restoring from a backup of my JBed iPod will work? Like just pressing "restore"?

    Or do I have to rejailbreak it again?

    Yes, Curiosity sucks.

    You'd have to restore to a custom firmware to maintain the JB and not just the backup that iTunes creates.

    Will iTunes recognize your iPod? I'd backup your data just incase.

    Might want to search the iPod section as I have heard of similar problems. I think you can SSH into it and fix things, but I cannot remember the details.

    DFU mode is your friend!!! Curiosity killed the cat, and froze your iPod. This happened to my friend, and after about three hours we just re-jailbroke it....

    After you rejailbreak youd have to start as a new ipod cause if not it will resort to your backup and everything will still be hidden.

    *I found that out the hard way

    Well, that'll be my last resort.

    About the SSH thing, the only solution I can make out of it is somehow unhiding the apps through SSH or FTP or something. Either deleting BossPrefs/Poof/SBSettings. I turned them off through Poof in SBSettings.

    If nobody knows how, then I'll just DFU and start a new ipod. ugh.

    [edit]

    K i solved it. I went to a random app, took out the hide string in it's info.plist, and voila, i'm good2go.

    Thanks for all ur help btw.

    SSH to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences and open com.apple.springboard.plist take out all the com.* strings.
