    Yesterday I purchased the iPod update for my 2G iPod Touch, and I'm already starting to think it was a big mistake.

    I play games while listening to music, that's what I do, it's not changing anytime soon....

    So I updated my iTouch, now it's 3.1.2 and I open up a game, double tap home, and nothing happens.

    I go to Settings > General > Home, switch to iPod and exit.
    Now I try again, doubletap home, and the music app pops up, exiting my game.

    What the hell did apple do?
    Is there any way to play my music and play games at the same time anymore?

    It worked with this game before, but now that I think about it, there was just a 3.0 update for the game so it may have changed.

    Still I'm pissed at apple for taking my little music changer buddy away

    Actually it works for me, plays music during games (maybe not all games, i just tried canabalt)
    and I double-tapped and got the mini-player
    Also, do you have ipod controls on?

    Cydia search- iPodPOP.

    That will make the message ALWAYS show up.
