    Since I jailbreaked my new iPod Touch, which I purchased just yesterday, I've experienced the first problems already.
    It's kinda hard to handle my touch, it seems like it doesn't react on my touch, does it hate me?

    Anyone experienced this problem as well!?

    There have been a few reports of this. It most likely has nothing to do with jailbreaking. If you just got it yesterday, I would restore it, and if it still happens, then take it back. The screen should be very sensitive and work perfectly.

    I restored it twice already.
    Will have to bring it back, I guess... .

    make sure that you are touching it with the right part of your finger. the side of your finger or your fingernail wont work. you need to use the part on the opposite side of your finger of your finger nail. also make sure your finger never goes on the black part of the screen while dragging or w/e. and lastly, make sure that you dont have a finger from your other hand accidently touching the screen,.

    The side of my finger works great. As long as a fleshy bit of your body is touching it, it should work just fine. Fingernails, hair, teeth and such won't work. Whatever touches it must be electrically conductive at low resistance. (No metals; they don't work either, they're too resistive)

    But yes, it should be extremely sensitive. A light touch of your finger should register. If it doesn't, there's probably a problem with the unit.

    Hell, no. The medication put a stop that.

    This is getting a little weird, in my opinion.
    My iPod needs to be returned, it's absolutely messed up, I can't even restore it anymore, under Windows.
    I'll try on my MAC now.

    Metals are too resistive? huh, last time i remember from elementary science that metals are very good conductors and therefore have low resistance.
