    Hey guys, I picked up my 8gb iPod Touch a few weeks ago, Jailbroke it to 1.1.3 with no problems, but I began to notice about a week ago, a weird yellow mark at the bottom right corner of the screen. It almost looks like the sun with its rays spreading out, it's quite weird. Here's a picture of it (sorry for the blur):

    I've read about screen problems and dead/stuck pixels, but the thing is, this yellow mark doesn't show up all the time (for example, it leaves the screen when I open up "Music"):

    I didn't notice this when I first got my iPod, I believe it appeared sometime after I Jailbroke it. Could installing a certain app do this to the screen? The mark doesn't appear when it's at the "slide to unlock" screen, but after you slide the button and it loads the screen with all your apps, you can see the mark suddenly appear in the corner.

    Any help would be great! I've got until the end of this week to return/exchange it (after then my 30 days are up), so I guess if all else fails, I can either exchange/return it, or I can restore my iPod early this week, Jailbreak it again, and see if the mark is completely gone...

    Thanks!

    This is called Dock.
    It's an extension of the springboard that is an app launcher.

    Tap it and watch your apps pop up in a spiral like thing.

    Its called dock.app; you can remove it by uninstalling it from installer.

    To use it put your finger on it and drag it diagonally to the other diagonal of the screen like this : \ from bottom to top

    Heh I remember installing that but I didn't really pay much attention when I did, I guess.

    Plus the new case I got won't even let me open stuff that low in the corner so that confused me as well.

    Thanks guys.
