    This is the restore thread, the list of issues where something that needs to be iPhone Browsed or needs to be restored to fix.

    I have heard many questions asking with these problems, "do I need to restore", if your issue is on this list, the answer is YES

    -SWOD (spinning wheel of Death) A wheel that appears on reboot, the loading wheel that wont stop spinning and begins to spin over itself, if you have this, you need to RESTORE

    -Home screen transparent / cant open any app / cant touch anything. If when your tap the sleep button on your ipod the unlock screen shines through, or you cant open ANY app without it imadiatly crashing, or you cant touch anything then you need to RESTORE

    -Stuck at bootup screen: When you are stuck at the main apple logo (or pwnage log per-se) and springboard dosent launch, if this happens you need to RESTORE


    RESTORE TIPS
    Add the source i.unlock.no to your list (only for 1.1.3/1.1.4). Install iPhone browser. Now if ever you are forced with a problem where the springboard wont launch but everything is still going you can hardwire in to your iPod.

    iPhone Browser: http://code.google.com/p/iphonebrowser/ your looking for the .exe

    NOTICE:
    a smart person would back up the com.apple.springboard.plist and try to restore that via SSH or iPhone browser if that works.​

    This is the .plist you want to try to restore to your ipod beore you restore your firmware.

    NOTICE #2: Many of these problems are caused by applications both trying to set the same prefrence, so if this happens after you install an application, use iphone brwser and remove the app.

    because the app might also live ouside the applications folder you still might have to RESTORE.


    This thread was made because I was soo sick of threads saying HELP IM STUCK AT THE F*****ING BOOT SCREEN, or HELP I CANT F^^^^^ng tocuh anything!!!!
