    Hi, I have a jailbroken ipod touch 2g. I'm very happy with it, but the only problem is that its a pain for me to put it in DFU mode and to turn it on through the computer. I used to turn my ipod off before I go to bed, but lately I have been having problems putting it in Dfu mode, so I just leave it on. I was wondering if it's harmful to the ipod to have it on 24/7. Thanks.

    This is just like asking:
    "Is it harmful to leave my cell phone 24/7 on?".
    Of course it isn't!
    iPod Touch and a lot of other apple devices have a strong battery and the best technology on the world (kinda).
    iPod Touch > cell phone.
    Anyways, you can keep it on and if you have any battery problems, just reboot it.

    Yeah but if problems start to occur, they will be most likely gone after a reboot.

    Nope, does no damage at all. Just as long as your using it regulary (at least once week)

    Thanks! By the way, why does more problems happen the more you use dfu mode? Isn't dfu mode supposed to be used to boot it? Sorry for being a noob.

    you totally contradicted yourself?

    and since when is it not safe to leave your cellphone on 24/7 - my wifes has been on 24/7 for almost 2 years now. its still perfect, last just as long, charges fine... etc. The battery in an iPhone / Touch is the same type as whats in a cell phone.

    i think the Touch was designed to leave on. Think about it.. you have to hold buttons to FORCE it to allow you to shut down. The basic info sheet it comes with doesnt tell you how to turn it off.

    you might be right but i dnt think so
    i think apple batteries are the worst
    sure they work perfect for like the first year you have it
    and after tht trust me the battery is GARBAGE. but yes the technology
    is quite remarkable
  10. No need to worry. Infact, it's best not to completely shut off your ipod regularly but to leave it on sleep most of the time to help preserve battery life. Theres some very helpful threads about batteries and ipod and stuff which i read so XD.

    Yeah... Just to summarize, nothing to worry about ;p
