    Can somebody please send me the file at sfseay(at)gmail.com?

    ITouch now won't boot without this file.

    If you kept your rdisk0s1.dmg file, the application is still in there and you may still be able to SFTP to your iPod, copy it over, and then reboot. The SSH daemon starts before Springboard is loaded.

    Thanks for the reply. I did have my rdisk0s1.dmg file and was able to SFTP the file to the iTouch. However when I restart the itouch I'm still on the screen with the apple logo. Not sure what to do now. Any hints. I hate to have to JailBreak again.

    You could do a chmod to make sure it's executable since you did just copy it over, but I'd give it like 3 minutes to try to boot.

    Code:
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/*

    It had been about 10 minutes since I SFTPed the files so I ran the chmod -R a+x /Applications/* command and rebooted the iTouch.

    Still no luck. I would guess I need to Jailbreak again?

    By the way, when holding down both buttons I never get the slider to power off. That may also be why things aren't working right?

    Springboard isn't stored in Applications, it's stored here: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    After copy it over run chmod -R a+x /System/Library/CoreServices/*
