    Recently I got a 64GB iPod Touch and after installing some apps (done this twice already w/ no problems) Not a single app works. It'll open and then bring me back to the app page. I've tried resetting it, hard restore, and even resyncing the apps. NOTHING WORKS!!! Should I try restoring it as a new iPod or what else can I do? I'll try one more thing (cuz that's the time that I'll have to do it) before I go to the local apple store.

    This can sometimes be an authorization problem and your Touch is not being recognized as linked to the account that the apps were purchased from. Try purchasing a free app from itunes using your Touch via wifi, it will require you to enter your account information to purchase the app it generally fixes the problem.
