    Ok, so I have a 3rd gen ipod touch jail-broken with blackra1n.... just today I dropped my ipod touch, i have a thin case on so it barely protected the screen and back of the unit. (the screen is not chipped or broken in any way) but after i picked it up the screen was white with a few black bars on it. When you press the sleep button, it dims the screen but not fully like normal. when you plug it into itunes, it recognizes it and I can even Sync with it!!!! but I reboot it, I hold Home and sleep buttons for 30 seconds, it reboots i run blackra1n it turns white again!! it has never shown any color but white since i dropped it. how do I fix this????


    thanks

    Sound like your sreen is screwed up. May need a new one.

    The rest of the hardware seems ok as it can sink etc.

    you should restore and take it to apple. but, if you can guess what youre doing, you can back up your ECID SHSH hashes through cydia, if you still can.

    Why? It's a hardware problem, not software. It wouldn't do anything. But, the Cydia ECID SHSH wouldn't work because Apple is no longer signing 3.1.2.
