    Alright. So I was using SBSettings to hide some icons when I started to wonder what my iPod would look like if I hid ALL of the icons. Not a good idea on my part. So it started doing its normal thing restarting springboard... and it loads so much that it restarts. Alright. So it's starting up again... and starts to load springboard.... it loads so much that it restarts again. My iPod is stuck in an infinate restart loop. It will just keep restarting until it dies. What do I do? What can I do?? The way I figure I have 2 options. TRY and restore it from itunes or buy a new iPod..... Does anybody have any other suggestions? T.T

    My horrid computer does that when it overheats and I just hold the power button while it's starting up. Try that.

    Hold the power and home buttons at the same time for 10 seconds. Then put your iPod into DFU mode and you should be able to restore.

    No no, you must misunderstand. It never gets to the lockscreen. It restarts completely. Screen goes black and the apple symbol pops up. While the apple symbol is still there it does that little... loading circle... and it freezez up and then shuts down. Then the apple symbol pops up and the loading circle, then black etc.

    Do a DFU+Restore. Fixes everything.

    Can you access ssh in that period? If so, try installing an app using dpkg -i (one that has a SB icon). Just a random guess but worth a shot I suppose
