    I have a 2.0.1 jailbroken iPod touch 8gb and i charged it to full then went on a trip, I was listening to music with the screen off and occasionally turned it back on to change playlist or volume etc. After like 6 hours or less it ran out of battery but i heard the iPod touch got 20+ hours battery life for music with the screen off so what gives? I suspect it might be my jailbreak/firmware. I have a custom theme but it is a solid picture with no animation. Also my wifi was turned off. So is this normal? If it is can i do anything to increase battery life?

    -Thanks

    You get way more power on 2.1. Btw, 2.1 can be Jailbroken if you still need that.

    I know, I've been considering jailbreaking 2.1 and one of my friends told me i definitely should, but i have all my jailbroken apps, themes, lots of files, etc. And it would take a long time to get it back to normal so i'm thinking about waiting for the next major firmware update before i do it. I'll upgrade to 2.1x or 2.2 if jailbreakable.
