    on april fool's day (concidentally, i don't know) my iPod started to shut down and reboot it self, and kept on saying it was out of batteries when it was on 75%. i'm starting to think the conficker virus affects the iPods, not windows

    I can guarantee you 100% that conficker will never effect your iPod

    Conficker is windows ONLY!
    It uses a exploit found last October in Windows, Microsoft patched it, but the damage is already done. I can assure you, conficker will not affect your iPod.

    I recommend you enable the numerical battery, and if it is at about 20 when the 20% message shows up, but you know you just charged, either your battery is screwed or you have some recalibrating to do (let it run all the way down, and charge it all the way to the top)

    I could give you a virus if you want. Would you prefer it to be an autorun daemon that the system restarts every time you kill it,or would you prefer it to be a MobileSubstrate plugin?

    I'm thinking: It sends me a list of all your contacts as well as your Safari history and auto correction data (which contains password information in plain text).


    Either that or it will generate a random number between 1 and 1,000,000 (which will be stored in SpringBoard's settings (which means it gets backed up when you connect to iTunes)) that will act as a countdown. Once the countdown has been reached, it erases /var/mobile/Media.

    Autorun daemon sounds brutal. Give him that one
