    I'm not sure how to word this, but, pretty much, it's being "touched" without me actually touching it...
    Like, apps will open by themselves or if I have the notepad open it'll type random letters.
    But it only happens on the right side of the screen, and I have no clue what I did.
    It never did this before, and I only noticed it last night when I was using the AIM app and it started sending random things without me even touching the thing.
    I haven't drop it, or anything, there's no scratches on the screen, etc.
    I could really use some help figuring out what's wrong and how to fix my iPod.
    and I've only had this darn thing for two months. |:

    something might be wrong with the firmware or the sensors in the ipod if rebooting didnt help id try reloading the firmware, if that dosnet work re-do that but with a clean restore to make sure the bug got out if that dosent work a)theres a bug in the firmware b)hardware is damaged and may need repair

    How do you "reload the firmware"?
    Uhm... I have no idea what that means.

    And I've already erased everything on it and restarted and blah~

    Occasionally, ghosts will attempt to play with your iPod. I recommend going for a vacuum to try and contain the ghost.

    Anyways, back on topic, try and go and put the iPod into DFU mode. To do this, when the iPod is on, do these steps (make sure that your device is connected to the computer):

    1. Hold the power/lock button until the iPod turns off. (Just hold it past the "Slide to Turn Off" text)
    2. Without taking your finger off of the Power button, hold home until you hear a "du du" or "beep" on your computer.
    3. iTunes will now see your iPod as one in restore mode, just click Restore and you will go back to a new iPod.

    If it is still moving randomly, take it back to Apple and the Apple Store. I see that it is not jailbroken it so they probably will be able to fix or replace it for free.

    You are joking right?

    She would have to have Veency installed... along with simulated key events, AND she would have to click the "accept connection" upon someone trying to connect.

    She isn't being hacked, it's obviously a hardware issue.

    To the girl that needs the help:

    Just take the iPod back to the place you bought it, go to their customer service and explain that you bought it two months ago and you would like an exchange.

    If you bought it from an online website, send an email to their customer support.

    Good luck!
