    Hey everyone,

    I've noticed that there is a red dot at the top of the iPod that you can only see a certain light, does anyone know what this is for?

    Is it the ambient light sensor?

    EDIT: i have no idea if it is, just a guess though.

    It's the sensor that detects lighting conditions for the auto brightness feature

    It jailbreaks your iPod if you hold it under the light correctly. It might take like 10 minutes though...

    Alright people, please, enough with the "Blah blah blah jailbreaks you Ipod"

    There are a ton of these, and to the OP, it is the light sensor, it is what your ipod uses for the "Auto-Brightness" on your iPod, I wouldn't cover it up if I were you.
