    Because it needs to refresh the filesystem, as I understand it. Only way to do this is to reboot the Touch. What apps did you install where you didn't need to reboot?

    Do you have Summerboard installed? This only started happening for me after I installed Summerboard. Rather than rebooting your iPod you can just go into Summerboard config and press "Restart Summerboard".

    You mean "Restart Springboard", and that will only refresh the Springboard so it shows the new application. Certain applications will still require you to restart (turn off and then back on) before it is able to function correctly.

    my touch is doing the exact same thing. but it's a very small price to pay to have all that goodness. so i just roled with it.

    Yes some will, but not all, which is what the OP is having problems with.

    Actually I think Summerboard is the only app so far (besides the installer app) that I've had to restart for.
