    Hey guys, sorry for another topic, but it's actually necessary. I was so stupid, that i forgot to try connecting my iPod with my computer. It connected, but i'm getting a lot of suggestions that i should reset it. Is it safe doing it from iTunes, since it's a jailbroken iPod?
    I have Cydia installed but i didn't hack my iPod touch that much with using iFile or emulation or any Cydia tweaks.

    Restoring your iPod is perfectly safe, but keep in mind that you'll wipe everything, including any traces of your jailbreak.
    Good news is that you can restore a backup of your settings (game saves, among others) if you recently backed up your device, or if it gets backed up to iCloud automatically.

    Restore from iTunes just don't use the "restore button" on your iPod

    Yep your fine restoring it. I messed up my jailbroken itouch a few times, restoring always fixed it.

    It works perfectly fine with iTunes.

    iTunes won't sync any pirated software to your pod though. (if you have any)

    it is safe, but if you fail to restore it through iTunes, you can use iFaith..
