    I recently won a ipod touch 8gb through work. I updated to 3.0 and used redsnow to jb. I am somewhat of an ipod newbie so bare with me here. When i charge the device with the usb cable the charging/lock screen comes up for a few seconds then the screen goes totally black. To see the charging status i have to press the home button. The device does charge it just doesnt show it unless i press the home button. I un jailbroke the device and it exhibits the same behavior. Is this the normal charging function??

    thanks

    Go to settings and find the lock screen thing and change it from "5" seconds to "never" (without hte "s)

    Reason i asked is that i see all these people taking all this time to customize their battery on screen charging. Whats the point if you see it for all of 5 sec?

    my idea whould be to rejailbreak it with 3.0 and not use a backup just incase its something on one of your recent backups. or its the firmware you installed. it could be corrupted go and install it somewhere else (preferably itunes) need a tut? you tube.com vids
