    It goes away after you reboot? What counts as a reboot? When it says "Slide to power off."? I put my ipod in sleep mode when i dont use it... Would that count as powering off?? Also when i connect to a comp does that reboot and remove jailbreak??

    Also, does this mean I can't connect my iPod to my computer whilst doing this, or can I just not turn it off?
