    My ipt3 is now rebooting endlessly after installing a dozen cydia app at once. Maybe had I resprang it between each apps it wouldn't have happened or at least I would know better the culprit.

    Current Behavior : Stuck on apple logo, but will show up as fine and accessible via USB/Wifi (SSH) for 5min every 4min...

    I'm using WinSCP and Kitty and have very limited knowledge of linux/iPod directory structure.

    Where should I look next ?
    As a windows guy I'm searching for a bootlog and an autoexec.bat

    yet, I feel I'm close

    a "TOP" showed 29 process, 68 threads, no cpu usage except "daily", ReportCrash?...

    I read about http://modmyi.com/forums/file-mods/682255-speed-up-your-iphone-ipod-removing-launch-daemons.html

    Sorting LaunchDaemons by last modif date is com.apple.SpringBoard.plist ... I think deleting something in there would solve it,,, Not taking any chance, Could someone have look at it ? com.apple.SpringBoard.plist
    Also included my list of launchDaemon (seams long). LaunchDaemons.txt

    Thanks for your time.

    If the problem occurred after you installed a bunch of Cydia packages, then uninstalling them should fix it.

    Using SSH, enter
    dpkg -l

    This will list off all of your installed packages. Read through the list and take notes of any IDs (xxx.yyy.zzz) that match any from the dozen.

    Once you've found 'em all, one by one enter
    dpkg -r xxx.yyy.zzz
    This'll uninstall them, hopefully allowing the system to boot.

    Thanks Shawa, it make much more sense than...
    Why someone bother saying such nonsense is beyond me.

    As weird as it may seams what fixed it, was in the comments
    It worked using another pc without an OS as a power source. (even if there was very little power)

    Still, I learned a lot on iOS inner workings.

    Thanks again.

    It happened again, Just wish to report on final resolution if it happen to someone.

    problem is iTypeFastR, even if I uninstalled with "dpkg -r com.[PIRACY].itypefastr3x" I still had to do the above plug un-plug ... for it to boot correctly.
