Admittedly, I don't know much about jailbreaking, but after having jailbroken my iPod 2G old boot-rom on every firmware since 3.1.2, I am pretty sure this isn't a normal problem. OK so heres the story: I restored my ipod, which updated my ipod to 4.1. I knew It would do that but I also knew I could still redsn0w my ipod. So I reinstalled redsnow 0.9.5b5-5 and used the official 4.0 ipsw. It looked all normal and eventually resynced. I opened my iPod and went to Cydia, and here is where the first problem started. The cydia icon was blank - white. I figured It would fix itself after It reorganized. It did the normal first time opening thing, but did not close automaticaly. So i closed and reopened it and clicked NO Filters just like always. It tried to load but I got error message "Method http has died unexpectedly! Sub-Process http recieved signal 5". I hit ok and it got stuck blank with the loading frame in the top right. Since I havent downloaded anything there is no alternate way of reinstalling as far as I know. Ok so it gets better. I tried to turn off the ipod and turn it back on, but if i try to turn it off it just goes back to the lock screen after loading, but doesnt actually reboot. I put it into recovery, restored and did everything again. Same exact problems. Anyone know anything about this or am I screwed?

I feel real stupid about this. I actually did just that moments after posting the original feed. I should have checked the dev team blog first! You were correct, and that did work. I'll tell you if there is anything interesting that the jailbreaking community needs to know about after I run some tests. I hope there isn't because its usually for the worst. Thanks for your help!
