    Yesterday, ChrisFrancia suggested a great idea to me via twitter. It's a sort of "semi-tethered" setup where if you are not tethered to a computer, your iPod Touch 2G still boots but without any jailbroken functionality.. Your official apps will still work.

    I've put together a sample implementation of this at http://iphwn.org/rslite102semi.zip

    It's an advanced technique but if you are able to apply it, you'll probably feel a lot more at ease carrying around your iPod Touch 2G without fearing a reboot.

    Nevermind, I read the readme.
    Sadly this requires a restore, and I don't want to lose all my jailbroken stuff, but nice idea anyways :)

    The jailbroken apps will still actually be there even in the non-jailbroken state. In fact you'll still see the icons and everything. You just won't be able to launch them.

    Ok I have to re jailbreak now but at least you can boot with official apps intact.
