    Hey guys. My iPod Touch was looking a bit grubby with loads of finger prints on it today. I took it home and put a little bit of glass cleaner on the screen and rubbed it with a cloth. It worked really well, it looks as good as when it came out of the box.

    The question is, if I do it frequently, will it damage the screen?

    Thanks.

    Glass cleaner is just fine. Capacitive touchscreens are built to be very durable, and are usually constructed of glass coated with a transparent indium tin oxide film. There's no worries about damaging them any more than you'd worry about damaging an ordinary piece of glass, so long as you make sure the surface is wiped clean and dry.

    If you are truly concerned, buy a screen protector or invisible shield.

    You need to install Oktoprep, then upgrade to 1.1.2. Then use the Devteam 1.1.2 jailbreak.

    the user manual (gasp! USER MANUAL?!?!) you can download from Apple says...

    No glass cleaner

    Microfiber cloth dampened just slightly with water or just dry, or the lame thing in the box, and nothing else.
