    I just updated/jailbroke to firmware 2.2 yesterday and I was excited to download podcasts from my iPod but it gives me an error saying
    "There was a problem downloading this podcast" "Delete | Retry" and I can never get it to work

    Is the podcast a podcast from the iTunes music store? Or one you subscribed to outside of the iTunes music store? (IE an RSS Feed). If it is the latter, there is nothing you can do aside from downloading the podcast episodes from iTunes. Because if it allowed you to download podcasts from outside of the Music Player on the iPod Touch, then you could basically download any media. Legal or Not.

    Are you trying to subscribe to a podcast you found in the Mobile Music Store?

    Have you tried any other podcasts? Maybe the server thats hosting the podcast is down. All podcasts (That aren't Apple's) aren't hosted on Apple's servers. They're hosted on wherever the Creator of the podcast hosts it.

    Can you download the podcast fine in iTunes? Maybe the Jailbreak did something to the Podcasting functionality on your 2.2.

    Yea, I think the Jailbreak did something with the functionality with the podcast because it downloads fine on iTunes (Mac)
    I guess its my iPod.

    Do I have to restore to solve this problem?
