    this is annoying me just a bit.

    I had already jailbroke my ipod awhile back, installed cydia, winterboard, picnic themes and all those little goodies that come along with the joys of jailbreaking

    just now, in order to SSH my itouch, i downloaded the openssh from cydia and restarted my itouch..


    ..and then popped up the restore screen with the picture of the usb cord and itunes logo.

    This happened before too. after i jailbroke my ipod and then tried to restart my itouch, itunes would state that my itouch went into a recovery mode and needs to be restored. back then i didnt have much downloaded via jailbreak, but now i had themes and stuff installed- and ill have to get blackrain again.

    is there anyway around this or is this all b/c of the 'tethered' jailbreak?

    thanks :]

    Everything will stay the same when you turned it off.

    after rebooting you idevice, just plug in into your usb and run blackra1n again...it will then run normally, no restore required.

    edit: beat me to it.
