    So i use a wall plug to charge my ipod. Sometimes when i plug it in the battery bar shows a plug. I will reconnect it and it shows a bolt. Sometimes the bolt will change to a plug without me touching it. I think when it displays a plug, it stops charging and actually drains the battery. I have come to this conclusion because when i charge it while i sleep, sometimes i will wake up with it showing a plug and at a lower battery level than when i started.

    Is there a way to fix this? I want to try and avoid restoring.

    This started happening randomly. Nothing i did to change my ipod has any noticeable effect.

    Additional information:
    I have tried multiple outlets.
    I have tried both the old and new USB cords.
    I use the older wall charger, about an inch thick and a 2inchx2inch square.
    It is a 16GB 2nd gen ipt
    Jailbroken with blackra1n
    running 3.1.2 (downloaded off the internet)

    sounds like a hardware or firmware issue, I would update and JB and see what that does.
