    I bought the January update. My mail app wasn't working then. I upgraded to 1.1.4...still not working. I jailbroke 1.1.4..everything works fine, but the Mail app will continue to open for two seconds showing a white screen, and crash back into the main menu. Interestingly, it will allow me to delete the email account from the settings menu, but when i go back to it, it is still there!!! Same thing happens when I delete a note...it LOOKS like it's being deleted, but then it's still there....HELP please, I need the mail app to be functional, it is soooo annoying to type in my username and pass into gmail site each time. Suggestions?

    yea i had the same problem and theres two solutions....
    if you want to keep your ipod jailbroken:
    -download WinSCP onto your computer (if your using windows)
    -download openSSH through installer (on your ipod)
    -download bossprefs through installer and turn on SSH
    -through WinSCP on your computer, delete the mail folder from var/mobile/library (let me know if your confused about how to do this)

    if you dont want your ipod to be jailbroken:
    -put your ipod into recovery mode by unplugging it from the computer, turning your ipod off, holding down the home button and plugging it into your computer via USB...continue to hold the home button until itunes opens and a window pops up that says that itunes has found an ipod in recovery mode
    -once the window pops up, click ok and then click restore...after 10 minutes or so the restore process will be over and your ipod will be restored to factory settings and the mail app should work
    -reminder: this will unjailbreak your ipod and erase all of your jailbroken applications

    hope that helps
  10. How does that help.
