    So I just updated to 1.1.2 and ran the jailbreak and everything was lovely.

    My iPhone apps were gone so I decided to try just dropping them and the frameworks and whatever into my iPod using SSH. BUT my mail app wasn't working so I THEN found out that you could just install them with the Installer so I decided to go back into my iPod and erase each app and the framework and the mail preference bundle individually.

    I restarted my iPod and Now it has what I have dubbed, the Crazies.

    It loads up the main menu, then the little spirally load thing pops up and it restarts, shows the apple logo for half a second and goes back to the main menu. OVER and OVER and OVER again. It is, like I said, totally crazy.

    One other crazy thing, it refuses to go into recovery mode, will restart for 45 seconds or so, then show the "Crazies" thousands of times over again.
    iTunes does however recognize it and so does Cyberduck so I guess that it must be a springboard issue.

    Any ideas friends? Anybody else encounter the Crazies? Any pleasant words of encouragement? Or helpful advice? Talk to me.

    You shouldn't just outright delete sh*t. If you install with installer, make sure to uninstall with it as well.

    I did that with a few apps and I had this issue. I restored back to 1.1.1, jailbroke, oktoprep'd, upgraded to 1.1.2, jailbroke, manually installed iPhone apps and proper dependencies, set permissions to 755, and I was set.

    Sigh...

    SSH in and delete ~/Library/Mail
    Then reboot the iPod.

    Haha! Now my ipod wont connect to wifi so guess restoring is the way to go. What a shame. Oh well, I guess I learned things the hard way today. Thanks for the help, I'll be back to badger people if i'm still running into craziness.

    It IS pretty crazy though, wouldn't you agree?

    Power off the iPod and do the Last Resort Trick. I had the Crazies yesterday... and this is how i revived my iPod.

    Hold Home Button while its powered off, and then connect the iPod cable. It should power on, so keep holding the home button. It should enter Recovery mode.

    People think you have to hold the Power button too, but you dont...

    and I thought that was crazy!

    WOW, now THIS is crazy.

    I just restored my iPod and it's syncing my songs now. And inside the slider where it should say slide to cancel, it says slide for emergency in like 5 different languages! HELP.

    mmmkay, the Crazies have been cured. I downgraded to 1.1.1 then went through the whole process again. I wish I could the 5 language trick back though, that was insane!
