    Reboot your iPod, hold down the button on the top until the "Slide to power off" thing comes up, slide it then turn it back on.

    That doesn't work. I had the same problem. Restarting does nothing.

    SSH into your ipod and delete the SMBprefs.app

    then

    reboot

    That doesn't work either.

    Here's how I fixed mine. Installer.app doesn't uninstall SummerBoard all the way... all it does is uninstall SMBPrefs.app. Lame.

    1. Use FTPS to browse your iPod
    2. Delete Library>Frameworks>SummerBoard.framework
    3. Delete System>Library>LaunchDaemons>com.apple.SpringBoard.plist
    4. Open the disk image "rdisk0s1.dmg" that iPhuc created when you Jailbroke your iPod... I hope you saved it!
    5. Navigate to System>Library>LaunchDaemons> and copy com.apple.SpringBoard.plist back into the LaunchDaemons folder on your iPod.
    6. Get info on the new com.apple.SpringBoard.plist file in your FTP app (I use Transmit) and change the permissions to 755.
    7. Restart your iPod

    By the way, if you ever screw up your iPod, you can still log in via SSH or FTPS while it's stuck on the Apple logo.

    When installing Summerboard, the original springboard.plist is saved on the iPhone under /Library/Frameworks/Summerboard.framework

    If you've deleted that one too, you can also just edit the springboard.plist in /System/Library/Launchdaemons. Open the plist in texteditor and delete these lines to get back to the original state:

    <key>EnvironmentVariables</key>
    <dict>
    <key>DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES</key>
    <string>/Library/Frameworks/SummerBoard.framework/SummerBoard.dylib</string>
    </dict>

    The save it back to the iPhone. Works fine. Actually, deleting these lines (or restoring the original springboard.plist) is all that's necessary to 'uninstall' Summerboard. The other stuff is just cleaning up.
