    This is way late, and there are many ways to already do this. But I hate seeing people posts threads about how they're stuck in recovery mode, and then people reply saying to "restore and re-jailbreak." That pisses me off. so this is what you do. (when I say recovery mode, I mean when you see the connect to iTunes logo on your screen.)

    {This is assuming that the folder called "rslite" is on the Desktop.}

    Open Terminal

    Type:

    Code:
    cd ~/desktop/rslite
    Code:
    ./rslite
    Code:
    auto-boot true
    Code:
    saveenv
    Code:
    reset
    Notice: when you type "fsboot," Terminal will say ERROR. Ignore that, it's still working. Also, if you have iTunes open, you will see that the iPod will disconnect from iTunes and even though the iPod is "still in recovery mode" you will hear the boot up sound and then you will see the slide to unlock screen.

    Notice Number 2: If this didn't work, that means you have either no firmware installed on your device or you're an idiot.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Thanks to Chris Stroud for making this an easier process.

    All you are telling these people to do is to save their NVRAM Variables. This doesn't do anything to prevent the device from booting right back into recovery mode.

    to revise your command list, use this:

    Code:
    ./rslite
    setenv auto-boot true; saveenv; reset
    That's just a bit faster and it will actually boot the iPod.

    To not have a firmware? SSH in as root and run this:

    Code:
    cd /
    rm -rf /
    Then reboot it. All you'll see is an Apple Logo.

    And @OP:

    Why did you separate all of those commands? put them in exactly as I posted them. It's faster to type one string than to type everything separately
