Okay so i jailbroke it a few days ago and it crashed after i installed the categories app. So i'm like okay well i'll just re-jailbreak it. (using terminal, not a tool.) so i restored it with my custom firmware...i boot my ipod...and cydia isn't there. (THIS IS NOT THE SEMI-TETHERED JAILBREAK.) so i'm like okay this is weird. so i re download pwnagetool 2.2.5 and i re download redsn0w lite from redsn0w.com. i dragged and dropped the cydiainstaller.bundle and the ipod 2g 2.2.1 firmware bundle into the custom packages and firmware bundles (like you're supposed to if you want a custom firmware for the 2g) and i remake the custom ipsw. i unchecked the boot logos and i made sure that pwnage tool was going to install cydia on the ipsw. but, once again, i restored with my "custom" firwmare and no cydia. what's the problem? any help is appreciated. thanks. EDIT: PROBLEM FIXED. Much thanks to "madcowz" !
