How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hey guys, I've had my iPod jailbroken for a while now. Earlier today I checked cydia & decided to update my tweaks. As the update finished, it showed the respring loading screen and froze. I tried a hard reset and my ipod got stuck in a bootloop. I eventually got it booted into safe mode, however wifi wouldn't work as the option was grayed out. I've done the Blow dryer/Freezer method and it worked for a few minutes. It froze up during a resping and suddenly wifi isn't working anymore. Not sure what to do now. Im trying to avoid a restore, but i'm not ruling it out. Is this a hardware issue or was it due to the jailbreak? Would an update fix anything? Thanks IOS Version: 7.1.1 Model: iPod Gen 5 32gb* Jailbreak Tool: Pangu

Appears hardware malfunction.

Restore to iOS 8.1 from here as it is still signed by Apple. See if WiFi returns. Jailbreak with Pangu.

My wifi came back for a little while once again. It worked fine, however I was stuck in safe mode. Uninstalled a bunch of tweaks & everything seemed normal. All of a sudden apps like settings & the app store began crashing. Tried to reboot & was stuck in a boot loop, which stops after a while. Wifi disappeared again. My wifi is currently working though, however I'm stuck in safe mode. If the problem continues tomorrow, I'll probably resort to restoring. Also, any tips to get out of safe mode? It's randomly putting me into safe mode, despite me removing quite a few of my recent tweaks.

UPDATE: Installed Crash Reporter. It suggestested that StatusHUD2 was the culprit behind many of the crashes I was facing. Uninstalled it, and my iPod is running smoothly again. WiFi returned as well. I'll update again if something happens.
