    I have a jailbroken ipod touch with 3.0 firmware. The back right corner of my ipod touch has been heating up when i use it. Its noticable but not that bad. It also happened when i was in 2.2.1 firmware. I was just asking if it was a bad thing? What should i do?

    From what I know, it's normal for your Touch to heat up. This is caused by having multiple apps running, e.g. Music+Safari+Wifi+Miscellaneous JB app processes. Another heat instance is when you're using your Touch while you're charging it. It will juggle between charging and usage, causing it to heat up. Above all, it's normal for heating to happen.

    It's pretty normal.
    Just give it a break from time to time.

    If it's the top right, it's the wi-fi adapter heating up. It's normal, unless it's excessively hot.

    If it's bottom right/middle, it's the processor. Again, normal unless it's REALLY hot.

    Just don't use your iPod too long if you're charging it with a wall charger. It starts to get pretty damn hot.

    On the apple iPod touch online instructions it say to let your iPod " breathe" while charging it by taking it out of the case, but yeah, it's definately normal for your iPod to heat up
