    hello there.
    just jailbroke my 3G (8GB(tethered)) and have found that 2 minutes on the Cydia Store or actually any Homebrew Application and my iDevice gets SERIOUSLY hot and (not only that) it's quite slow. i was wondering if anybody else has this problem? my iDevice is perfectly fine with normal apps (from the app store), and it becomes a worry when it's so hot you can BARELY hold it!

    what shall i do?
    take it back?(dispite everything normal is fine)
    forget jailbreak?
    or just use it?

    That doesn't happen to me. Get it replaced.

    Yeah I notice it gets ever so slightly warm when it's charging, but it shouldn't be getting hot like that. There is definitely a problem. Don't think your health is necessarily at risk, but the health of your ipod is!
