    My iPod's running out of batteries so quickly, much more quickly than before I upgraded. Is it possible to turn it off?

    Also, I jailbroke my iPod a few days ago, and it worked fine. I hadn't installed anything, I only had Cydia and I'd added some sources. I set the alarm for the morning (it'd been jailbroken for around a day) and it worked. However, I clicked snooze and the next time I checked my iPod, the screen was bright yellow and I had to reset it to factory settings, nothing else worked. What was this?

    Oh, and I'm positive I don't have the MC model.

    I think you need to ssh and edit a plist to disable
    multitasking,
    but I would recommend downgrading to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 and jailbreak.

    When I first jailbroke my iPod, my best friends were Narwal13, this website, and YouTube.

    That doesn't really help, though, since there are no guides on disabling it, only enabling it and I'm apparently just expected to know where all this is
