    Earlier while listening to music and browsing on safari I noticed that my iPod started heating up. I took my or thermometer and measured the temperature of the back and screen and the temperature was 115 on the screen and 110 on the back in degrees Fahrenheit. Is that considered overheating? The only apps that were running were safari and music in the background.

    I wouldn't consider it overheating unless you noticed lagging.

    It didn't seem to be lagging however I have had some problems before when running apps where the iPod randomly freezes and restarts it self. It happens randomly and not with any specific app. My 3rd gen never restarted itself like that.

    That is a sign of overheating... if it keeps happening replace it.

    Is it jailbroken? Maybe you better restore the firmware. And ya the brightness turned down helps a lot with heating and battery life.

    1. Of course it's not jailbroken, it's an iPT4.

    2. I really wouldn't consider than overheating. 110 degrees may sound like a lot, but in reality that's just warm.

    3. If it gets to the point where it's actually HOT (ie, painful to the touch), then you should return it.

    Yeah I think it's fine. It seems to only get that hot when I had the brightness at 50%. It isn't jailbroken and I don't plan to jail break it even once one is avaliable.

    its not overheating, it's just the A4 processor.. it packs a bit more punch that previous processors in such a small space. You can't really tell in the iPhone 4 since it's glass, though it does still get warm. The metal back on the ipod touches easily gets warm. and 110 farenheight is nothing... 110 celcius is another story

    Lol yeah 110 Celsius would be bad. Is the a4 near the top of the casing? That's were it seems to be the warmest.
