    I did a stupid thing,

    I was trying to reset my ssh password that i changed a long time ago and i couldnt remember it, so i was trying to use ifile to edit the master.passwd file, ( I have a backup) and when it got to the part to replace the file instead of copying it to replace i decided to delete it first then i was gonna copy over the new file, but after i did that the program froze up and crashed, so i tried to do a respring and it just stayed spinning and spinning so i did a hard reset and now it's stuck at the apple boot screen. is there anyway for me to get back into the the phone and put the file in? of an i screwed ? also i should mention that i don;t have a iphone backup on the computer that im working on. so thats not really an option. please any help would be appreciated.

    If you're on a Mac download DiskAid and try to replace the file with that.

    I think iFunBox will do the same on Windows.

    On another note, I don't think missing that file should effect you being able to respring... That would just keep sshd from starting, but that's not even required for the phone to boot.

    If you're iPod is in that bad of state (which it shouldn't be based on how you explained what happened) restoring may be the only option. Are you sure thats the ONLY file you changed?
