    Is it just me, or sometimes, and in my opinion, a little bit too often, during a respring your iPod gets stuck at the spnning wheel and boom, you have no choice but to restore. This has happened twice to me already, and I'm wondering to how many people this has happened to me. Don't say SBSettings is the problem, because the first time, it was a respring from Winterboard, and the other one was from SBSettings. *sigh*

    EDIT: So why is it everyone can fix it by simply hard resetting their iPod, yet when I try, the boot logo appears and the wheel just comes back along with it, and I still can't do anything? :/

    No see, when I try this, on the boot screen, after a bit, my screen goes black and then the spinning thingie appears along with the boot logo, then goes black again. After like 5 or 7 minutes, the iPod reboots itself, and here we go again.

    Just tried that for the third time, and it just shows the boot logo, then the screen goes black and the spinning wheel along with the boot logo show up every few seconds, then the screen goes black again.

    I've waited for 10mins, and its still spinning. Call me crazy, but reboots don't take this long.

    EDIT: 'kay, screw this, I'm restoring. >_>

    redsnow booter

    i have this redsnow booter.
    It just reboots your ipod and it works
    I dont remember where i got it from.

    But i use it when i get the spinning wheel, and it works just fine.

    Just just have to plug in your ipod, put into dfu and run the booter.

    edit**********
    i take it you solved your problems
