    So I have a jailbroken 1.1.4 iPod Touch

    Sometimes, when I go to plug it into the computer, it just won't connect. Then I take out the cord, blow into it, blow into the iPod, and reconnect it. After this, sometimes it takes up to 30 seconds to register that it's connected.

    Anyone else having this problem??

    Don't blow into it. Your saliva is electrically conductive, so it will create a better connection, but if you continue to do this for a while, it will corrode the connector.

    It might just be your computer. Sometimes my computer detects it instantly, other times it takes a while. For me it depends on how much of a CPU load there is.

    Allright, thanks for the help. "But that's how I always fixed my n64 lol". Yup, I think you are right though, because sometimes it works perfectly. Thanks for the help.
