    I jailbroke my iPod two weeks ago and it was working fine until 2 days ago.
    Two days ago, I tried adding apps as normal through Installer.
    I installed a couple of apps and they all seemed to download/install correctly.

    I went back to the home screen but the icons for the apps didn't appear.
    Some apps I installed later appeared after a couple unlock/lock procedures and a restart.
    I then tried adding some Summerboard Themes as normal. These download/installed correctly (or at least what looked correct)
    I then tried to change my theme to one of the new ones. None of the themes would display when the summerboard refreshed and my iPod displayed the default theme when I selected one of the new ones.

    All the old themes I had worked correctly even though the new ones wouldn't.

    I'm guessing I broke something or made a mistake.
    Anyone got any idea on what to do or how to try to fix it?
    (I would rather not have to restore and re-jailbreak, would have to re-synch music/video from multiple computers in multiple locations)

    Well, the only solution I can think of is if you do restore it. Otherwise I don't have a clue about how you would do it.

    Tried that, no luck.

    I've had a thought, maybe the partition that holds the apps is full?
    I might have to move the Applications folder to the Media partition and then create a link, don't I?

    How would I do that?
    I tried BossTool to do this but it failed to work.

    If that didn't work, restore.

    hmm,ok.

    Anyone got a direct download link for the 1.1.3 (32GB) firmware?

    iTunes only gives me the option to restore to 1.1.4.

    There is a Smb Themes Fix under Tweaks (1.1.3) inside installer program which will fix up theme not showing up after installing from installer. But everytime you add a theme, you need to uninstall and install back the fix to make new theme works.

    yep, found it the last day :)

    Its also in the new version of bossprefs.

    The problem I was having with the apps not installing was due to no more disk space on the partition, bosstool just messed it up. (happens on a lot of ipods)
