How do I reboot my 4th generation iPod touch? And what is the difference between restarting it, resetting it, rebooting it. I know what restore does, so is that the same thing as one of those maybe? ^^^^^

Rebooting is when you turn your device all the way off (hold down the power button then slide the red arrow over) then turn it back on. Restarting is the same as rebooting so I don't know why your asking that, maybe you mean respringing which is restarting the SpringBoard. Restoring is restoring the firmware on your device with stock (or custom) firmware through iTunes.
