    I deleted a few launch daemons to speed up my iPod Touch. They were all the ones in the Safe List and 2 of the ones in the Conditional List. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but after a while, I rebooted. It took 5 minutes or so to turn off, and now I'm stuck in a boot loop. It takes a long time to boot, and when it does, the Lock Screen flashes for a second, then the iPod reboots. I can't get into it with DiskAid. Can I fix it without restoring?

    Put it in dfu, run it through limera1n. Nothing's affected, problem solved.

    You shouldnt have deleted those two on the conditional list.

    People here cant post them cause they are copyrighted.

    There is a way to kick out of boot loop but it will probably just happen again because you lack the launch daemon.

    I think you have to restore.

    I only deleted:
    com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    com.apple.raccoon.plist
    com.apple.MobileInternetSharing.plist
    com.apple.AddressBook.plist
    com.apple.dataaccess.dataaccessd.plist
    com.apple.datamigrator.plist
    com.apple.AOSNotification.plist
    com.apple.VoiceOverTouch
    com.apple.voiced
    com.apple.mobile.profile_janitor.plist
    com.apple.scrod.plist

    from the Conditional List. They were reported safe to delete if you don't use the features they are for. I have backups of the daemons.

    What's the way to kick out of a boot loop?

    That's how to get it out of a boot loop.

    EDIT: Failed.

    I'm not even sure it's a problem with a daemon. I installed Euphoria Beta 1. I heard Euphoria can cause boot loops, but I'm pretty sure that was with beta 2.

    It was Euphoria. Trust me. Your only choice is to DFU or Recovery Mode restore.

    Restoring now.

    Hopefully, my last backup will be useful.

    Luckily, iTunes lets me restore my pre-jailbreak backup now (With all my old game saves and other data)

    EDIT: Or not...
