    I just tried out a portable mp3 speaker hoping it would be louder than the internal iPod Touch speaker. Unfortunately it wasn't, so I unplugged it. Afterwards, I quickly found that my iPod still thought headphones were plugged in by pressing the volume buttons on the side of the iPod. When pressing the volume buttons, the iPod said 'headphones' above the volume icon, indicating that something (should be) plugged in to the audio out; but nothing was.
    I tried rebooting and respringing and the problem is still here. What do I do?

    Also, now the visual showing of the volume (when you press the side buttons) isn't showing up at all
    EDIT: It's there, sometimes

    :/

    Reboot it (Power & Home for 10 seconds). That should clear it. If it still thinks they're attached, reboot again, if that still doesn't work, restore via iTunes.
    And if that doesn't work, take it to Apple. It's probably a hardware fault.

    I'd rather not restore...as you can see my iPod's jailbroken and it's just too lengthy of a process for me to keep repeating every time something goes wrong. And since it's jailbroken, the Apple store probably won't do anything about it

    If you think it is a hardware problem just restore it and bring it to an apple store, they should be able to help. Otherwise just try the standard things you can - reboot, plugin your headphones etc.

    Mine has done that sometimes you have to actually plug in your headphones then change the volume, then take them out and that should work

    I'm currently on vacation, away from a computer but I will be restoring when I get home. I predict it'll work fine
