    ok just so you know restoring and putting in recovery will not help.

    heres the steps to customizing the homescreen plus getting webclips.

    oh yeh jailbreak your touch before doing this other wise your stuck.


    EDIT: make sure all themes and summerboard are removed before hand (official site states this)

    with community sources installed in installer go to tweaks 1.1.3 and install SUID Lib Fix, next install summerboard from the system catergory and exit installer. When at the home screen open summerboard then close it.

    reboot your touch by powering it completely off then on again (makes summerboard active), next go to utilities category in installer and install customize, exit installer then load customize up and close it (this creates a theme entry for summerboard to point to), now go to summerboard and then themes and click choose customize. Now it should be plain sailing from here, go to customize again then theme browser and browse away, most themes come with a preview image so you can see them before you download the theme to touch.


    right well this is simple you dont have the january update with the mail, stocks, weather etc. add the following source:

    when soucres have refreshed after adding, go to install then look for a category called iPod Touched and then install iPhone apps + wiggle and now you can webclip to your hearts content
