    i just bought an ipod touch 16gb 1st gen from best buy.

    i noticed there were 4 lights (white lights) that leaked out from the top screen. it was extremely noticeable during the load screen since it was all black. at first, i thought this was normal but after comparing with my sister's ipod touch 1st gen, i realize it was not.

    i was going to leave it as is since it was only noticeable against colors besides back, but i decided to compare brightness of the two ipod touches. when sent on max, mines was definitely weaker, possibly due to the light leak from the top.

    attached is a demo image of where the light leak comes from.

    going back to best buy tomorrow for exchange. i had just jailbroken it and installed the good stuff

    you're right. i actually had it replaced a few hours after i entered my original post. i wasn't aware best buy had extended hours during december so i just went to customer service and had it exchanged.
