How to fix some mysterious problems.

Ok so I jailbroke my friends iPod Touch 2G today and Cydia was working great at first and I download some apps. Now when I tap the Cydia icon, Cydia will open but then crash for no reason. I rebooted and resprung but nothing worked! The iPod is on 3.1.3 and was jailbroken with Spirit. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it?

Save the SHSHs with TinyUmbrella, upgrade to iOS 4.0, jailbreak using ((Or Greenpois0n if you upgrade to 4.2.1))

I cant upgrade it because it will make my friend lose all of his music and he wont be able to get it back on his iPod since he doesnt have a computer and my computer doesnt have his music. But SHSHs are saved for 4.0 and 4.2.1 on the iPod.

Download some freeware and extract his music into a directory on your desktop, then upgrade, then put the music back on, and jailbreak. ((4.2.1))
