    I'm pretty sure that if you don't have your music app already running in the background you can double click the home button and tap play. It seems to just start playing random tracks from your library....

    (you can completely close your music app by going to music and holding down the home button till it closes.)

    if you mean:

    play random songs from 1 album:

    go to albums or coverflow
    select Album
    have option "Random play" activated

    if you mean:

    play random albums from 1st to Last Song:

    go to installer and install "extended preferences"
    if its not there, add the source (just search the forum)
    go to preferences
    set the Random play seting to Album
    choose album category in Music Player
    random play
    enjoy

    if you mean:

    play Random Album with Random songs

    not possible

    "play Random Album with Random songs"

    That's called Shuffle. Go into All Songs and turn on shuffle.

    There is an so-called extended preferences. Under tweaks, one can select 'shuffle album'. So ipod touch can play an album in order of songs, after finish the album, it will shuffle to another album and play in order and so on. Unfortunately, this is very unstable and has many tricks. It doesn't satisfy my requirement.
