I have an iPod Touch, 1st gen 32gig, running 3.0 jailbroken. The first problem I encountered is the power/sleep button not responding. I would press the sleep button and it would not sleep, but the "Slide to turn off" thing came up. I did not hold the button down, but it's acting like I did. The next problem is lengthy... When plugged into my computer, it works perfectly fine. As soon as I unplug it, it works (except sleep button). I use it in my car and I usually just pull the headphone plug out when I get out of the car to put it in my pocket, causing it to Pause. (I have tried pressing pause instead of just pulling the plug) Both causes it to lock up after it goes into sleep mode on its own. It then proceeds to restart, which it cannot do properly. I am stuck in an endless reboot sequence until I plug it into my computer again. I have reset, restores, recharged, cleared all data and settings. Nothing fixed any of the issues. I've read at least a thousand forum posts in the past week and none of them have helped at all. Should I call Apple? The closest Apple store is Buffalo, NY.. which is at least 2 hours away. My iPod is approx 18 months old, so will they do anything at all for me or do I have a $500 paperweight?
