I've already tried to connect it to iTunes and restore,tried to open cydia via my own device and I'm trying to open it via iFunbox to see if i'm able to delete the dreamb archives.. Please dudes help me,I haven't done any backup here and it's driving me crazy !!!

Hi, I'm not a pro, but please try this:

Step 1 : Do a hard reset by holding Home button + power button and home button together until the screen becomes black

Step 2 : Press your power button to see the apple, then stay pressing the volume up button until you see your normal Lockscreen

Step 3 : Launch cydia, and uninstall Gyro theme and Dreamboard (if you won't use it anymore)

Step 4: Once out of cydia, Press your power button and shut off your phone.

Step 5 : Once the screen goes black, just start your iphone and enjoy it again :)

I hope this helped

@KillswitchSoul The point of a QA site like this is not just to solve your problem, but also to provide an archive of answers for other people with similar problems in the future. Please don't delete the question.

If you removed the Dreamboard Files then you've pretty much screwed it up. So now when it turns on it tries to access those files which are no longer there. However, since you have a iPod 2G it's not a huge deal. Place your device in DFU Mode while connected to the computer. Open iTunes, iTunes should say your device is in Recovery Mode. Just click Restore. Your device should turn on afterwards.
