    Ok so for the last couple of days when i have been messing around on my 2nd gen ipod touch, it has restarted itself. It doesnt happen when i open a specific app just at any random time it will just turn lots of different colors then either reboot by itself, or it will get stuck with the many random colors on the screen (in which case i hold the power and home buttons to restart manually). Does anyone know what could be causing this? and does anybody know how to fix it?

    thanks

    I have no idea what's causing it. I would restore though. That should fix it.

    ok i was thinking about doing that. and could it have something to do with having a lot of apps? i only have about 5 pages of apps now but i have downloaded tons of apps then deleted them. could that be eating up the memory?

    whats the difference between restoring in DFU versus regular?

    Nothing... (As far as I'm concerned.)
