    So my friend jailbroke his iPod with Quickfreedom, and everything was okay. But when he was using BossPrefs it froze. It turned off and when he turned it on there was the loading thing (the circle with the light spinning around). It stopped spinning and now whenever he turns it on the loading thing is there put the light is frozen. He tried to put it in recovery mode and take it out, hard reboot, and all that. Is there a solution?

    I forgot to add that restore would be the last option. Is this what they call the spinning wheel of death or something? I'm not that sure

    SpringBoard files are corrupted and/or permanently crashed.
    I think they are corrupted because you cannot get into mobile substrate safe mode. Use ssh (if you have openssh) and manually delete any themes, docks, etc. that you had added prior to the crash.

    If you dont have openSSH, restore, and be more careful what you put on your ipod.

    Well my friend was hiding a lot of apps with Bossprefs when it happened so I don't think that he was downloading anythin. I guess restoring is just the easiest solution though.

    Lol, hiding too many things is always a bad thing to do.

    I'd just restore and set up as new, since the icons would still most likely be hidden if you restored a backup...
