Touchscreen stopped working after cydia update
I am using an ipod 4g with an old version of ios. My touchscreen stopped working on reboot after recent cydia update. Apparently this may be due to a bug as I found posts by a few people late last year saying the same thing.
The first thing I did was hook my ipod up to my pc and use file browser to disable tweaks I thought might be causing the problem. Disabled quite a few but touchscreen still never worked on reboot and I could not get past the lockscreen.
Because I'm using an old version I guess I could not use the up volume trick to disable mobile substrate. So it looks like I made a big mistake. In file browser I renamed the folder mobile substrate to something else, thinking then my ipod would bypass mobile substrate and work normally.
Instead as soon as I booted I got stuck on the apple logo. Now my ipod is,no longer recognized by any software on my pc as connected, and I cannot access the file system anymore.
If I play around with it now and then the screen will go grey and it will reboot and hang again on the apple logo. Won't so anything else.
What can I do now? Why is the ipod refusing to boot after I renamed the mobile substrate folder? I thought mobile substrate was separate from both cydia and ios and not necessary to either?
Is there anyway I can get back into the file system to rename the folder, so that at lest I can get past the apple logo again?
