    So I was installing things from Cydia to set up my A1A Premium theme, and when I clicked "Confirm" my whole iPod crashed and restarted. So I tried again, installing FiveIRows and FiveColumns, and these would delete Iconoclasm. It crashed and restarted again. Now whenever I click on Cydia, the loading screen pops up (because of my theme) and then it shuts down, but only Cydia. Like my iPods still on, just Cydia closes. I tried changing my theme, and all the same thing happens.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    You could try SSH'ing into you ipod, then navigating to /var/lib/apt/lists and deleting all the files in the "lists" folder except for the folder called “partial”, then re springing your ipod, worked for me when cydia refused to open.

    How would I SSH? I mean I know I could look up a guide, but wouldn't I need an SSHing app from Cydia, which I can't install because it won't open? Is there a way to do that with an app from the appstore?

    You would need OpenSSH form Cydia. Unfortunately, if you don't have it, you're probably out of luck, and may need to restore. (If you have an iPod touch 3G, you do have the SHSH blobs backed up for restoring, right?)

    Thanks to Apple's draconian App Store policy, you will not find something similar on the App Store.

    You don't need to be able to SHH to back up your shsh blobs...

    From Wombo Combo's link:
    I imagine that this method requires a special file to reach root. A file only accessible with Cydia. Did you try running spirit again? (If you used spirit to jailbreak...)

    Wouldn't I need to delete everything to run Spirit again?

    That's the recommended thing to do.
