    hey! i have my 2nd gen 32g itouch that i bought and i love it, use it all the time...i upgraded it to 3.0 software, and later jailbroke it using redsn0w...it was running fine for a while...until just recently, i started getting a white screen just like in dfu mode, or even with a flashlight app...i will leave it in my pocket for say an hour, come back to it, press the home button,and i get the white screen!?!# then it takes about 5 min to fully reboot it and then it runs slow for a while... but i have noticed that if i check on it every few min it runs fine...but if i leave it i get this stupid problem...i though about restoring everything..but i didnt want to lose all the data and everything cause i had a bad experience with that upgrading to 3.0...so can anyone help me or give any tips? anything at all would be accepted...thanks

    p.s...whats the deal with the multi player 3.0 update thing? can you really play with some one in the same room without wifi?

    yes via bluetooth, and not all games have it yet but many are starting to use it.. and upgrading to 3.0 shouldnt of erased anything.. so you probably restored.. which is better if your going to jb.. and the only way i can think of is to DFU restore... leave the ipod for a little while and see if the problem returns... then jailbreak and test again... if nothing goes wrong then sync all your things over.. also, what data are you going to want to back up? most things can easily be accessed by SSH and things like that.. if youve never used SSH i can help you out.. its very easy with the program i have

    ok so i have tried everything...before when i would get the white screen i would reboot it and it would return to its normal self...but now that white screen wont go away!!! after trying a few times i discovered that if i swiped my finger across the bottom it would give me the clicking unlock noise so i know that it is there..but itunes wont realize that its there so it impossible to restore the whole system.....??

    whats a DFU restore?

    UPDATE:i went to the apple store and found it was the hardware that was the issue..the screen pixel thing burned out or was functioning oddly..so they will replace it...he said that he had only ever seen it with iphones ...he also tried to pull that it had gotten wet
