How to fix some mysterious problems.

iPod 5, iOS 8.1 Pangu8 jailbreak. Messing with some settings in springboard via AdvancedSettings(8?) control center section, iPod froze up and now stuck in boot loop. Holding down volume up does not work, and holding home and power button, then holding volume up does not work. Device appears to be off after holding home + power and then holding power button. What should I do?

I don't have access to a computer currently. My iPod has the apple logo for about like 5-8 seconds, screen goes black for 1-3 seconds, and repeats, like its infinitely respringing. Do you think SSH has loaded and/or I can do a semi restore? Upgrading/restoring is THE last option. There's nothing good about vanilla iOS on an iPod, since it's just an iPod. Thanks for any help :)

If you don't have access to a computer and the volume up button trick doesn't work... I don't think you can really do anything.

No computer? Boot loop?

Well you f****d it now m8


Well the only way to fix your device is by restoring on a computer, go to a library or borrow someone else's computer, once connected put it in DFU mode and hit restore on iTunes.

If you made no backup then you lost your data, also you will be updated to 8.3 so you lost your jailbreak too

Well I now have access to a computer. I was just at an event for a while. What files can I/should I delete/edit to fix it? Deleted in /var/mobile/library/preferences (made a backup) but no dice.

Its no point, you delete so much stuff for system, you may accept losing data, jailbreak, update to 8.3
