    Hi
    Since I updated my Ipod Touch 2G (with redsnow) to OS 3.0,I have a heating problem at the lower back and the face lower left corner.The heating can occur when charging the battery or anytime when using the Ipod,means when listening to music or playing

    Battery seems to drain faster too
    I am 100% sure it wasn't like that before 3.0

    Hooray someone finally agrees battery life is so much worse on 3.0! I started a thread on this last week and all the replies were that their battery life is better! Its not its awful, my battery life is worse by nearly 50%. I have tried asnd tried to downgrade and nothing works!

    i think tetris is a memory intensive game by nature, but the heating is weird. i have seen something in the system strings called "iphone too hot". when the device actually gets hot, there is a screen that says iphone too hot and it locks it self with no slider or anything like that until it cools down. this can pop up on any device. have you gotten that screen?

    this happened to me, just turn off your ipod and wait for about 5 minutes or until it cools down and then turn back on.

    No I didn't got the screen but the thing that worries me, I could play Tetris pretty fine on 2.2.1, yes it sucked on the battery but never got warm/hot...

    Mine has heated up since I got it =\ It always heated up when I played games and charged it, and even when I just played games.
