Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Alright, I have an ipod touch 4g, 6.01, and i have been trying to jailbreak. Installed 6.0 software, set that as the .ipsw, jailbroke fine (Selcected "install cydia"), reselect the .ipsw once it was done, boot, and it boots up with the pwnapple logo. But, I open it up, and there's no cydia app, nor settings/safari/anything! Can someone help, i would really prefer not having to reset.

If stock apps like Settings and Safari are missing, it's a stashing bug. The only fix is a restore, sorry.

Any way to prevent such things from happening in the future?

No, it's nothing you did or didn't do. Fortunately it's a pretty rare bug, the odds of it happening again are pretty slim.

The answer-vs-comment thing happens all the time, you're actually the first person I've seen self-correct that, I always have to do it for people. Congrats. :D
