    Gojohnnyboi and i were just using these for personal use, but decided if u guys wanna try em go ahead. These are like waht bsd subsystem installs, executable applications so to speak. There are 5 of them downloaded to /bin. Here is a list of what they are and what they do:
    respring - it resprings the springboard to the unlock screen.
    restart - this reboots your ipod in any firmware.
    setlanguage - this "soft" resprings your springboard.
    symA - This symlinks your Applications to /var
    symF - This symlinks your Fonts to /var

    To install this add this source in installer, then go to iHackers and install Xtra Utils:

    This is a beta so please report any bugs! Thanks.

    yeah. not really anything special guys, just some useful executable "apps" that basically just do these things. NO interface or gui, just execute them. i was tired of typing

    launchctl stop com.apple.SpringBoard in winSCP every time i wanted to add an app through ssh so i made especially setlanguage so i could just execute

    setlanguage


    so i guess enjoy guys! if u guys find them useful i can make more.
