    So i downloaded Ifile from cydia to see all my hidden files on the ipod and i accidentally DELETED an important folder called "stash". after i deleted the file, the ipod froze complety so i turned it off(reset it) and turn it back on and its stuck on the Apple logo screen. what should i do? and another worse thing is i'm using an LINUX computer so i cant use ITunes. even if there is a way to install ITUNES to linux, i dont have the admin password to install stuff. so is there a way to bypass the password aswell?

    also the "stash" folder contain all apps

    Why in the hell did you delete the stash folder?

    Your only hope is to find iTunes somewhere (a library or something?) and restore it.

    More to the point, why go monkeying around in the file system if you don't know what you are doing?

    Probably the only thing you can do with the iPod Touch is a DFU restore. Which is going to require iTunes.

    Abd as for a Linux box that you don't have a password for, that you need to take up with the owner of the box.
