so finally in my city we got power back hence we got wifi back at my house. (a foot of snow crashed trees into all of our power lines)
i updated two sources in cydia and then my jailbroken ipod 4th gen crashed.
i had to restore to get it back working and rejailbroke via redsnow and tether.
like always at first cydia is a white icon.
but when i shut off my device and try to just boot via redsnow it doesn't recognize my device.
and yet still it starts up without the jailbreak.
i dont think this is a problem with cydia since i updated the same to sources on my iphone 4 what gives?
